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 use the sun to power daily life: running your air conditioning unit, washing clothing, viewing TELEVISION, cooking dinner. All while reducing 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 considerable, numerous home owners find that the convenience, special functions, and expense savings of owning a solar power system are much more alluring.
Top 10 Benefits of Solar Energy
#1 Dramatically minimize or perhaps remove your electric costs
Whether you're a homeowner, company, or not-for-profit, electricity expenses can make up a big part of your month-to-month expenses. With a solar panel system, you'll generate totally free power for your system's whole 25+ year lifecycle. Even if you don't produce One Hundred Percent of the energy you consume, solar will decrease your utility costs and you'll still save a lot of loan.
#2 Earn a terrific return on your investment
Solar panels aren't an expense-- they're one of the very best methods to invest, with returns equaling those of more standard investments like stocks and bonds. Thanks to significant electricity expense savings, the typical American house owner settles their photovoltaic panel system in seven to eight years and sees an ROI of 20 percent or more.
#3 Secure versus increasing energy costs
Among the most clear cut advantages of photovoltaic panels is the capability to hedge utility rates. In the previous 10 years, property electrical power rates have increased by an average of 3 percent yearly. By buying a solar energy system now, you can fix your electricity rate and protect versus unforeseeable boosts in electrical power costs. If you're a company or house owner with fluctuating capital, going solar likewise assists you better projection and manage your costs.
#4 Increase your house value
Multiple research studies have found that homes equipped with solar energy systems have higher home values and offer faster than non-solar homes. Appraisers are increasingly taking solar setups into consideration as they value homes at the time of a sale, and as homebuyers end up being more informed about solar, demand for properties equipped with photovoltaic panel systems will continue to grow.
#5 Boost U.S. energy independence
The sun is a near-infinite source of energy and a crucial component of accomplishing energy self-reliance in the United States. By increasing our capacity to produce electrical energy from the sun, we can also insulate our nation from cost fluctuations in global energy markets.
#6 Develop jobs and assist your regional economy
According to The Solar Structure, the solar industry added jobs at a rate almost 12 times faster than the overall U.S. economy in 2015, representing 1.2 percent of all tasks in the nation. This development is expected to continue. Because solar-related jobs tend to be higher paying and can not be contracted out, they are a significant contributor to the U.S. economy.
#7 Safeguard the environment
Solar is an excellent way to minimize 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 typical property solar panel system will remove three to four lots of carbon emissions each year-- the equivalent of planting over 100 trees every year.
#8 Show your commitment to sustainability
Sustainability and business social obligation are essential elements of a company's culture and values. They likewise produce bottom line results. Significantly, consumers and communities are recognizing and rewarding organisations that decide to run responsibly. Services are discovering that "green" credentials are a powerful driver of customer acquiring choices, producing goodwill and improving company outcomes.
#9 Start Saving from Day 1
Solar purchase power agreements (PPAs) and solar leasing has actually made it possible for homeowners to go solar for little or no loan down.
Many house owners decide to finance their photovoltaic panels with among the "pay-as-you-go" funding choices. This indicates that a third-party company-- the solar company-- owns the solar system and looks after setup, upkeep, tracking and repair works. You simply pay the solar service provider for electrical power-- less than you would've paid the utility business.
As of June 2013, 75% of all American houses have access to pay-as-you-go solar.
#10. Solar is a Secure Financial investment
The utility business are infamous for their fluctuating and unreliable electrical power costs. There is plainly an upward pattern.
With photovoltaic panels and simple mathematics, we can compute just how much electrical energy will be created, and most notably, at what cost, for at least the next 20 years (repaired energy expenses).

Frequently Asked Questions
Solar Panels On House Vs Hybrid Auto - Which Does More For The Envirornment?
There Are A Lot Of Variables But Is There Any Studies To Evaluate Which Might Be A Better Choice Over The Other?
Solar panels and Hybrid both help our environment by either not using energy, creating energy, or using drastically less energy.
Using both would be a great way to help the environment, but you have to consider where you are the most; in your car, or at your home? If you're mostly on the road, then you would probably prefer Hybrid. But if you're mostly at home, then Solar panels.
Me personally; I would choose Solar panels. Just because you then become energy independent in your home, and you don't have to deal with a huge electric bill. The thing about it is that they're awfully expensive.
But if you choose using the Hybrid, I would also recommend you look around at other alternatives. Yes, Hybrid is a great way to go, but it still uses gas. No, not as much as regular cars, but in the end, it will still produce the same amount of CO2 and global warming pollution. Try finding a diesel car and use biodiesel or vegetable oil to help fuel your car. Biodiesel doesn't contribute to the global warming problem, and vegetable oil only spins around the CO2 that's already in the air.
A Solar Panel Facing The Sun At Noon In Mid-Summer Receives More Intensity Of The Light Than When It Is At Horizontal. However, It Can Receives More Total Solar Energy When It Is At Horizontal Than When It Is Tilted During A Long Summer Day. Regradless If It Is Shaded By Building Or Trees. Why Is That So?
That does seem a little confusing. But is really pretty easy to understand.
When the solar panel is facing the sun at noon it will produce the most power it can be it summer or winter. But there is a however involved here. In the summer the sun comes up in the north east and sets in the north west which would be behind the solar panel in the morning and late after noon. So you lose that part of the day. By laying it back 15 deg more the sun will be able to shine on the face of the solar panel all day long. The panel will not capture as much direct sunlight at noon but the extra gain from the morning and late after noon will more then pay back the loss.
Check out this page. http://www.oynot.com/solar-radiation.htm... it shows a graph and explains it better.
Installing Solar Panels On Roof?
What Is A Good Sight That I Could Go To About Installing Solar Panels And All Of The Considerations Of It?
That depends on what type of solar you are talking about. There is PV (photo voltaic) and Thermal solar which uses the sun's warmth to heat water run through your home.
People still think that PV solar is the only kind and yet Thermal solar is actually the more efficient and most benefical solar power for the enviroment.
Here are some links for you...
This site has all sorts of alternate power options for the home, I linked it to the grid-tied home solar systems.
This site is for Thermal Solar heat systems
In both cases I would recommend you call to get specifics before ordering anything.
Where Can I Buy Cheap Solar Cells From?
I Am Look For 6X6 Solar Cells Cheap.
Where Can I Find It?
You can look on eBay.
But if your intention was to build your own panels, be aware that you can buy ready-made solar laminate from places like sunelec.com for far less than it would cost to buy cells and manufacture your own panel.
Also beware of scams that claim you can build your own panels cheaply and easily, and save thousands. There is no "hidden secret". If it was so easy to do, the news would spread like wildfire, and be free, like jailbreaking a phone or setting a DVD player to play all regions. Yet, we don't see people using homemade panels on their houses.
When you see someone with a slick pitch about building solar panels asking for any money at all, it's a ripoff.
What Is The Average Cost To Add Solar Panels For Home Electricity?
I Live In A Tri-Level Home Approximately 1400 Square Feet. I Use Around 3000 Kwh A Month And Spend 400-500 A Month On My Electric (Only) Bill. I Figure If Im Going To Be Spending That Much Anyway, I Might As Well Help The Environment And Get The Tax Credit. If You Can Give Me The Average Cost To Add The Panels To My Home, How Many Panels I May Need, And The Average Cost Savings On An Electric Bill I Would Truly Appreciate It.
Go here first:
They have state by state listings for renewable energy. Then contact your local electric provider and ask them who is licensed by them to do solar installs. You cannot legally do a solar grid-tie yourself.
It's a long term investment, but thin-film solar has come down to $1 a watt, so it's much quicker to get a payback than it was 2 years ago.
You cannot run a/c on solar, it takes too much power. Your 400-500/month bill it probably from heating/cooling cost.
Going direct solar water heating will save you money very quick. Most places encourage it now.
Your utility should also have state sponsored energy conservation programs like energy audits and free or cheap added insulation that would help you cut your bill.
