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, cleaning clothing, watching TV, cooking supper. All while lowering your carbon footprint, and without burning nonrenewable fuel sources or putting a pressure on the electrical grid. And while the ecological advantages of solar power are significant, lots of homeowners discover that the convenience, distinct functions, and expense savings of owning a solar power system are much more attractive.
Top 10 Advantages of Solar Energy
#1 Drastically decrease or perhaps eliminate your electrical costs
Whether you're a property owner, organization, or not-for-profit, electricity costs can make up a large portion of your monthly costs. With a solar panel system, you'll generate complimentary power for your system's whole 25+ year lifecycle. Even if you don't produce One Hundred Percent of the energy you take in, solar will reduce your energy bills and you'll still conserve a great deal of loan.
#2 Make a great return on your financial investment
Solar panels aren't an expenditure-- they're one of the very best methods to invest, with returns rivaling those of more standard financial investments like stocks and bonds. Thanks to considerable electricity expense cost savings, the typical American property owner settles their solar panel system in 7 to 8 years and sees an ROI of 20 percent or more.
#3 Protect against increasing energy costs
Among the most clear cut advantages of solar panels is the ability to hedge energy rates. In the past 10 years, residential electricity rates have actually gone up by an average of 3 percent every year. By purchasing a solar energy system now, you can repair your electrical energy rate and safeguard versus unpredictable boosts in electrical energy costs. If you're a company or house owner with changing capital, going solar likewise helps you better forecast and handle your costs.
#4 Increase your residential or commercial property value
Several studies have actually discovered that houses equipped with solar energy systems have higher residential or commercial property values and offer more rapidly than non-solar homes. Appraisers are increasingly taking solar setups into factor to consider as they value homes at the time of a sale, and as homebuyers end up being more educated about solar, need for residential or commercial properties geared up with solar panel systems will continue to grow.
#5 Increase U.S. energy self-reliance
The sun is a near-infinite source of energy and a key element of accomplishing energy independence in the United States. By increasing our capability to produce electrical energy from the sun, we can likewise insulate our country from cost changes in global energy markets.
#6 Create jobs and assist your local economy
According to The Solar Foundation, the solar market included tasks at a rate almost 12 times faster than the total U.S. economy in 2015, representing 1.2 percent of all tasks in the country. This growth is expected to continue. Since solar-related jobs tend to be greater paying and can not be contracted out, they are a significant contributor to the United States economy.
#7 Secure the environment
Solar is a fantastic method to decrease your carbon footprint. Structures are accountable for 38 percent of all carbon emissions in the U.S., and going solar can considerably decrease that number. A common domestic solar panel system will eliminate 3 to four lots of carbon emissions each year-- the equivalent of planting over 100 trees each year.
#8 Demonstrate your dedication to sustainability
Sustainability and corporate social obligation are necessary components of an organization's culture and worths. They likewise produce bottom line results. Increasingly, customers and neighborhoods are recognizing and rewarding companies that choose to run responsibly. Companies are finding that "green" qualifications are an effective driver of consumer acquiring choices, developing goodwill and improving organisation outcomes.
#9 Start Saving from Day 1
Solar purchase power arrangements (PPAs) and solar leasing has actually made it possible for property owners to go solar for little or no money down.
Many property owners decide to fund their solar panels with one of the "pay-as-you-go" funding alternatives. This means that a third-party company-- the solar company-- owns the planetary system and takes care of installation, upkeep, tracking and repair works. You just pay the solar provider for electrical power-- less than you would've paid the energy company.
Since June 2013, 75% of all American houses have access to pay-as-you-go solar.
#10. Solar is a Secure Financial investment
The energy companies are well-known for their varying and undependable electrical energy prices. There is plainly an upward trend.
With photovoltaic panels and easy mathematics, we can compute what does it cost? electricity will be generated, and most notably, at what rate, for a minimum of the next Twenty Years (fixed energy expenses).
What are the various payment options?
We have many flexible purchasing agreements for customers who would like to install a new home solar system. There are three different payment options, making them a viable choice for customers of all budgets. The payment options include Lease, PPA, and Purchase.
- Low, fixed payments each month

A Recent Alternative Hydrogen Fuel Seminar Discussed The Use Of Solar Energy To Produce The Electricity To Split Water Into Hydrogen And Oxygen.
A.Write A Chemical Reaction And Determine The Energy That Is Needed To Split One Mole Of Water Molecules Into Hydrogen And Oxygen Molecules.
B.The Seminar Explained That 10,000 Square Miles Of Solar Panels Would Be Required To Produce Enough Electricity For All Of America’S Electricity Needs, Which Includes The Electricity That Is Needed To Get The Hydrogen Automobile Fuel. Is Be Enough Room In Your City Or State To Accommodate The Needed Solar Panels For All The Of Needs In The U.S.?
C.Discuss Creative Places To Put Solar Panels. For Example, Would Covering The U.S. Freeway Systems With Solar Panels Be A Good Idea?
a) 2H2O + 2* heat of formation of H2O---> 2H2 + O2
b,c locate panels in the USA desert southwest; BTW it is 30,000 square miles (First Solar's CdTe based panels) - I was an invited alumni talk at my high school and researched.
the "insolation" is much higher due to lattitude and cloudless days and more than pays for the transmission cost and hit. Exxample Germany determied it is cheaper to put solar cells in Spain and pay for the transmission towers thru Spain and France and not suffer the cloudy hit.
How Do You Turn Clean Energy Into Thrust In A Vacuum.?
Usually Thrust Is Caused By The Burning Of Fuel. But Say In The Case Of A Vessel Floating In Space That Has Giant Solar Sails On It Supplying An Infinite Amount Of Renewable Clean Energy. Is There A Way (In Laymans Terms) That This Energy Could Be Used As A Means For Propulsion. Perhaps Moving Parts Creating Momentum?
Firstly, energy is energy, regardless of its source. Solar sails are not like solar panels in the way they work. The basic principle is that radiation pressure from the Sun's emitted particles heat the sail, whose heat is then re-emitted from the surfaces, effectively pushing the sail, as if by the wind. The further one is from a star the less effective a solar sail would be. It is also a very, very slow method of propulsion. However, it is not 'polluting' in the sense that it uses no propellant. Space is a big place, so 'clean' energy wouldn't matter much. Power versus cost or 'bang-for-your-buck' is the main consideration of mounting any spacecraft mission.
Can You Charge Batteries With Solar At The Same Time Using The Batteries?
Like The Solar Powered Calculator, It Switches Automatically From Battery And Solar. This Is A Yes Or No Question. If You Know How To That Would Be Even Better.
Yes, that is how battery based solar systems work. The charge controller manages putting the energy from the solar panels in the battery, while the inverter converts it to AC and allows appliances to run off it.

If I Have A Grid-Tied Solar Array That Provides All Of My Energy Demands, Would I Still Get An Electric Bill?
Whether or not your receive a bill versus a credit would be determined by two simple components: 1) How much electricity does your array produce? and 2) How much electricity do you use?
If you produce more than you use, the electric company would have to by law pay *you* for the excess. However, if you use more than you produce, they would bill you for the difference. The only way to avoid being billed would be to make sure you always produce more than you use, or else separate your array and your home from the grid.
How To Turn Heat Energy To Electrical Energy Without Boiling Any Water Please - If Possible?
I Am Asking This Because I Have Just Had An Idea While In School
The Idea Is: Make My Old Laptop - Toshiba Tecra A8 Into A Laptop That Runs On The Heat Produced When It Is Being Used, Effectively Making It A Self-Sufficient / Self-Independent Power Source So I Do Not Have To Keep Re-Charging It When I Use The Laptop For Very Long For Reasons Such As School-Work Or Hobbies I Have
This Project Will Probably Still Rely On The Laptops Charger For Storing Not-Yet-Used Energy While It Is Not Being Used.
I Will Probably Need Something Like Resistors To Make Sure The Process Does Not Use Too Much Heat.
If Anyone Requires Any More Information On My Small Project Or Has Any Helpful Information That You Think I May Be Able To Use I Would Be Extremely Greatfull.
I Thank All Answerers And Voters In Advanced
>would this help in my project or would that be a waste of money, space and / or other things?
It would be a waste of money, space and / or other things.
>a laptop that runs on the heat produced when it is being used, effectively making it a self-sufficient / self-independent power source
The problem is that at best, such a device could only generate a small fraction of the power needed to run the laptop. This is inherent in the way the universe is designed. (By the way, this understanding of how the universe works is distilled into "The laws of thermodynamics", )
>how to turn heat energy to electrical energy WITHOUT boiling any water please - if possible
There are plenty of ways to convert heat into electricity without boiling water, that's not the issue. The problem is that the efficiency of any such device is limited by the temperature difference between the hot and cold sides of the device. See links below.
>i read somewhere on the internet that - as i understand it - a way to create self sufficient power
There is a lot of BS on the internet.
>would it be possible to insert a thin home-made solar pannel behind the laptop screen and / or under the keyboard or motherboard or whatever it is that makes heat when the laptop is running in adition to my previouse ideas stated above?
Would not work at all. No light = no electricity from solar panel.
> i have come to the other conclusion of: by saying "you might be able to stretch the charge on your battery a little", Michael might mean that the time of a single charge on my laptop battery may be increased, is this perseption right?
Perhaps the best engineer in the world might be able to come up with a way to extract enough energy to increase the run time by a few seconds.... In other words, "It would be a waste of money, space and / or other things."
