About Solar Energy
Solar power is energy from the sun that is transformed into thermal or electrical energy.
Solar energy is the cleanest and most abundant renewable resource source available, and the United States has some of the richest solar resources worldwide. Modern innovation can harness this energy for a variety of usages, consisting of producing electricity, supplying light or a comfortable interior environment, and heating water for domestic, commercial, or industrial usage.
Solar power makes it possible for property owner to utilize the sun to power daily life: running your a/c unit, cleaning clothes, enjoying TV, cooking supper. All while minimizing your carbon footprint, and without burning nonrenewable fuel sources or putting a pressure on the electrical grid. And while the ecological benefits of solar power are substantial, numerous residents discover that the convenience, special features, and cost savings of owning a solar power system are a lot more enticing.
Top 10 Advantages of Solar Energy

With a photovoltaic panel system, you'll create free power for your system's entire 25+ year lifecycle. Even if you don't produce 100 percent of the energy you take in, solar will decrease your energy bills and you'll still save a lot of cash.
#2 Make a fantastic return on your investment
Solar panels aren't an expenditure-- they are among the very best ways to invest, with returns measuring up to those of more traditional financial investments like stocks and bonds. Thanks to significant electrical power expense cost savings, the average American homeowner settles their photovoltaic panel system in 7 to 8 years and sees an ROI of 20 percent or more.
#3 Protect versus rising energy expenses
Among the most clear cut advantages of photovoltaic panels is the ability to hedge utility rates. In the past 10 years, domestic electricity costs have actually gone up by an average of three percent each year. By investing in a solar energy system now, you can fix your electrical energy rate and safeguard versus unforeseeable increases in electrical energy costs. If you're an organisation or house owner with fluctuating capital, going solar likewise helps you better projection and manage your costs.
#4 Boost your house worth
Several research studies have discovered that homes equipped with solar energy systems have higher property worths and sell faster than non-solar homes. Appraisers are progressively taking solar setups into consideration as they value homes at the time of a sale, and as property buyers end up being more educated about solar, demand for properties equipped with solar panel systems will continue to grow.
#5 Increase U.S. energy independence
The sun is a near-infinite source of energy and a crucial element of attaining energy self-reliance in the United States. By increasing our capability to create electricity from the sun, we can likewise insulate our nation from price fluctuations in worldwide energy markets.
#6 Create jobs and help your regional economy
Inning accordance with The Solar Foundation, the solar market added jobs at a rate nearly 12 times faster than the general U.S. economy in 2015, representing 1.2 percent of all jobs in the nation. This development is anticipated to continue. Because solar-related tasks have the tendency to be higher paying and can not be contracted out, they are a substantial factor to the United States economy.
#7 Secure the environment
Solar is a fantastic way to minimize your carbon footprint. Structures are accountable for 38 percent of all carbon emissions in the United States, and going solar can significantly decrease that number. A common residential solar panel system will remove 3 to four lots of carbon emissions each year-- the equivalent of planting over 100 trees yearly.
#8 Show your dedication to sustainability
Sustainability and corporate social obligation are essential parts of a company's culture and values. They also produce bottom line outcomes. Significantly, customers and communities are recognizing and rewarding businesses that pick to run properly. Businesses are discovering that "green" credentials are a powerful chauffeur of consumer acquiring choices, creating goodwill and enhancing service outcomes.
#9 Start Saving from Day 1
Solar purchase power agreements (PPAs) and solar leasing has made it possible for property owners to go solar for little or no cash down.
Many property owners decide to fund their solar panels with among the "pay-as-you-go" funding alternatives. This indicates that a third-party company-- the solar company-- owns the planetary system and takes care of setup, upkeep, monitoring and repairs. You just pay the solar provider for electricity-- less than you would've paid the energy company.
Since June 2013, 75% of all American homes have access to pay-as-you-go solar.
#10. Solar is a Secure Financial investment
The utility companies are well-known for their changing and unreliable electrical energy rates. There is clearly an upward trend.
With photovoltaic panels and easy math, we can determine what does it cost? electrical power will be created, and most importantly, at what cost, for at least the next 20 years (fixed energy costs).

Frequently Asked Questions
Can Solar Cells Reasonably Power A House ?
I Vaguely Remember A Video In The Past And On It I Believe A Major Bay Area Company ( Google Or Microsoft ? ) Used Solar Power Cells To Power ( Or Help Power ) A Buidling.
My house is 148% solar power. I sell to the electric company 48% of my electricity. Just got to have generators for emergencies and plenty of batteries and panels and a knowledge in solar power systems. Solar panels can coast a lot but the energy it converts pays for it self and keeps going..
Would Like To Install Either Solar Or Wind Energy Into My Home. Tons Of Questions,Battery'S.Size Of Windmill,C?
Hargers How To......You Get The Picture. Any Help Would Be Great. Maybe Some Specific Websites,Thanks
For Solar Energy, you're going to have to put in at least $20 - $30,000 for the panels. You're going to have to have some sort of storage tank for the stored energy to be released by your Solar Panels into. With extra energy, you can sell it to power companies for some $$. You need a storage tank because, what if you have a cloudy day? You need some of that energy to back up your refrigerator or computer!
~Hope this helps! It costs you a lot at first, but it all works out in the end!
A Hybrid Car Gas,Electric,And Solar To Chagre Up When Car Is Idle Is Cost Effecctive How Do I Do This?
You Use Less Money If Ya Car Charges On Solar Energy While Its Not Moving Like Over Night. Can I Make A Profit?
The amount of power you can get out of a panel that will fit on a car is pretty low. Assuming 100 square feet, that is about 1 kW. If you get 8 hours of direct sun a day (and that is difficult to do), hat is 8 kW-hours of energy, which cost about 80¢ from the power company. And will charge the battery about 1/5 of the way (depending on the battery size, of course).
For Solar Street Light, How To Calculate The Rating For Leds Used, Battery And The Solar Module Itself?
Let Say Leds Consumes 40 Watts And Need To Be On For 10 Hours. What Next? How To Chose Battery And Solar Module For It?
It's a difficult thing to calculate. You need:
worse case number of hours of full sun per day
Number of hours the batteries have to run the lights on days without sun.
The problem is, you can have perhaps 3 days without sun due to a storm. that means the batteries have to power the light for that number of hours. And then when you get, say, 6 hours of sun, the solar panels have to be powerful enough to recharge that bank of batteries in that time.
So, you have to set all of these parameters, else you wind up with several hundreds of watts of solar panel for a 40 watt light and a huge battery.
Take an example. An ordinary auto battery can store about 1 kW-hour of energy. To operate the 40 watt light for 70 hours, means you need a 2800 kW-hour of storage, or 3 auto batteries. To recharge that 2800 kW-hours in 6 hours, you need 500 watts of solar panel. And that doesn't count losses.
How Is Electric Cars Any Better Than Gas Cars For The Environment?
Isn'T Charging An Electric Car Like Leaving All Your Lights On? How Is It Necessarily Any Better?
The short answer :
You are correct if we use fossil fuels to generate the electricity it would be roughly the same for both electric cars and gas cars.
The long answer:
Typical thermal efficiency for utility-scale electrical generators is around 33% for coal and oil-fired plants, and 56 – 60% (LHV) for combined-cycle gas-fired plants.  Transmission and distribution losses in the USA were estimated at 6.5% in 2007  giving an efficiency rating of about 37% for fossil fuel by the time it gets to our homes.
Electric vehicles convert about 59%–62% of the electrical energy from the grid to power at the wheels—conventional gasoline vehicles only convert about 17%–21% of the energy stored in gasoline to power at the wheels. 
So the total efficiency for fossil fuel energy as the source of the electricity is about 22%, only slightly higher than gasoline vehicles. A fair statement would be that in the case of using fossil fuels as the primary source of energy for both cars and generating electricity the energy used would be roughly the same.
I didn't count in non CO2 producing sources for generating electricity such as nuclear, hydro, wind, and solar. While coal plants are being replaced with more cost efficient and less polluting natural gas fired power stations as well as non polluting wind and solar. It should be obvious that an electric car is currently less bad for the environment than an internal combustion engine and due to the shift in cleaner electricity sources, the electric car is expected to improve even more over time. Although you could argue that some coal fired plants could be closed because they are no longer needed to charge the electric cars.
Solar on the roof is already cheaper than buying it of the grid  and some utility companies are now taxing people who feed the excess energy back into the grid (taxing the sun), using that excess solar energy to charge the vehicle would be make economic sense and would be non polluting.
I hope that this helps.
