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 everyday life: running your a/c unit, washing clothes, watching TELEVISION, cooking supper. All while decreasing your carbon footprint, and without burning nonrenewable fuel sources or putting a stress on the electrical grid. And while the ecological benefits of solar power are substantial, numerous homeowners find that the convenience, unique functions, and cost savings of owning a solar power system are much more enticing.
Top 10 Benefits of Solar Energy
#1 Dramatically reduce and even remove your electric costs
Whether you're a homeowner, company, or nonprofit, electrical power expenses can make up a large portion of your monthly expenses. With a solar panel system, you'll generate complimentary power for your system's whole 25+ year lifecycle. Even if you don't produce 100 percent of the energy you consume, solar will minimize your energy expenses and you'll still conserve a great deal of money.
#2 Make an excellent return on your financial investment
Photovoltaic panels aren't a cost-- they're one of the finest ways to invest, with returns rivaling those of more conventional investments like stocks and bonds. Thanks to considerable electricity costs savings, the typical American house owner pays off their photovoltaic panel system in 7 to 8 years and sees an ROI of 20 percent or more.
#3 Protect against increasing energy costs
One of the most clear cut advantages of photovoltaic panels is the ability to hedge energy costs. In the past 10 years, residential electrical energy prices have gone up by approximately three percent every year. By purchasing a solar energy system now, you can repair your electrical energy rate and safeguard versus unpredictable increases in electrical power costs. If you're a company or house owner with ever-changing cash flow, going solar also assists you better forecast and manage your expenses.
#4 Increase your home value
Multiple studies have actually discovered that homes equipped with solar energy systems have higher residential or commercial property worths and sell quicker than non-solar houses. Appraisers are increasingly taking solar setups into consideration as they value houses at the time of a sale, and as homebuyers become more informed about solar, need for homes equipped with photovoltaic panel systems will continue to grow.
#5 Increase U.S. energy self-reliance
The sun is a near-infinite source of energy and a crucial component of achieving energy independence in the United States. By increasing our capacity to generate electrical power from the sun, we can also insulate our nation from price variations in international energy markets.
#6 Develop jobs and help your local economy
According to The Solar Structure, the solar industry added tasks at a rate nearly 12 times faster than the general U.S. economy in 2015, representing 1.2 percent of all tasks in the country. This growth is anticipated to continue. Because solar-related jobs have the tendency to be greater paying and can not be outsourced, they are a considerable contributor to the U.S. economy.
#7 Safeguard the environment
Solar is a great method to lower your carbon footprint. Buildings are accountable for 38 percent of all carbon emissions in the U.S., and going solar can considerably reduce that number. A typical property photovoltaic panel system will remove 3 to four lots of carbon emissions each year-- the equivalent of planting over 100 trees annually.

Sustainability and corporate social responsibility are very important components of an organization's culture and values. They likewise produce bottom line outcomes. Significantly, consumers and neighborhoods are recognizing and rewarding services that decide to run properly. Businesses are discovering that "green" qualifications are a powerful chauffeur of consumer buying decisions, developing goodwill and enhancing service outcomes.
#9 Start Conserving from Day 1
Solar purchase power agreements (PPAs) and solar leasing has actually made it possible for house owners to go solar for little or no loan down.
Lots of homeowners select to finance their photovoltaic panels with among the "pay-as-you-go" funding options. This implies that a third-party company-- the solar provider-- owns the solar system and takes care of installation, upkeep, monitoring and repair works. You simply pay the solar provider for electrical energy-- less than you would've paid the utility company.
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 energy companies are infamous for their varying and unreliable electrical power costs. There is plainly an upward trend.
With solar panels and easy mathematics, we can determine how much electrical energy will be generated, and most significantly, at what cost, for a minimum of the next Twenty Years (repaired energy costs).

Frequently Asked Questions
What Are The Implications Of Requiring Builders And Designers Of New Buildings To Install Solar Panels?
Short run: the price of a house will increase an may out price some people trying to buy houses. The price of solar panel and installing them on existing building will increase perhaps out pricing some who want to install them.
Long run: decrease energy consumption and lowering the price of energy compared to what it would have been without the regulation. May spur investment in panel production and technology lowering LR cost of installation perhaps leading to more existing building having panels but farther out in the future. May pull investment from other alternative energy sources slowing technological advancements in them.
A Few Questions For Someone Who Knows Much About Solar Panels?
I Have Been Looking Into Solar Panels For A Small House That I Am Building. It Would Be Great If I Could Nix A Furnace, And Use Solar Panels To Heat The House With Electric. The House Is Going To Be Less Than 1000 Square Feet. I Have Tried Looking On Google But Did Not Find Much. I Am In Canada.
Here Is What I Am Looking For
- How Much Do You Think I Can Expect To Spend On Solar Panels?
- How Long Do They Last?
- Would They Eliminate An Electricity Bill All Together?
Hi this is just my personal opinion but I think that currently solar panels are not advanced enough to really do any good. In the future maybe but right now I don't see you really saving anything. The only reason why you would use solar is to help the environment. The initial cost of getting all the equipment is going to be so much that it will take years to pay for itself. Then when it does pay for itself some parts will need to be replaced costing more money. Right now I don't think it's a good idea. But maybe in the future. Again this is just my opinion.
How Do You Get Electricity In A Rainy Day If You Have Solar Panels?
I Am Working On A Project And I Have To Build A House With Solar Panels. My Teacher Asked Me How Would I Get Solar Energy If It Is Rainy Or Cloudy? I Looked It Up But Didn'T Understand. Please Help Me!!
Solar panels convert light energy into electrical energy with the photovoltaic process. They work best when perpendicular to the incoming sunlight and with no clouds in bright sunlight. They will work at reduced efficiency if there are clouds or rain, but as long as its not dark, they will still produce "some" electricity.
That is one of the real problems with solar energy, as we expect to have electricity available on demand, regardless of day/night cycles and atmospheric conditions. Storing electricity is very inefficient, so we need hydro, nuclear,or fossil fuel energy to provide firm "on demand" energy as a base load.
If Solar Panels Are So Good, Why Do We Sell Them To Silly Americans While Building Coal Plants For Ourselves?
If the argument is that the Solyndra loan was oversold as a job creation engine, maybe that’s true. But that’s not the argument that conservatives want to make. They want to claim that green energy investments must be ended because they cannot possibly work. With a perspective like that, obviously so. But the truth is that the Solyndra bankruptcy represents 1.3% of the total green energy loans put out by the Energy Department. Solar energy, far from being doomed, is booming, and solar PV was even a net exporter to China last year. If there were a level playing field and China wasn’t subsidizing it’s solar industry across platforms at 20 times the level of the US, or if the US met that challenge with a similar level of investment, it wouldn’t be a contest. But there’s still plenty of room for a solar and greentech space in the US, regardless of one company’s troubles.
Net exporter? Yeah!
Does The Heat Bounce Back From Solar Panel? Will It Create More Global Warming If All Roofs Are Solar Paneled?
Imagine If You Put A Mirror Under The Sun, It Heats Up And The Light Is Reflected Back. How Is Solar Panel Different From This Concept? Does It Uses A Special Material So The Heat Will Not Bounce Back To The Atmosphere And Make Our Earth More Warmer Causing More Global Warming And Helping To Melt Down The Iceberg In North And South Pole? Are You A Genius? Answer My Question :P....
don k is right. except solar thermal panels absorb heat to, of course, to heat water. to even think that solar panels heat up so much to attribute to global warming has to be the most idoitic, clueless question i have ever read. we are all dumber to have read it. does your hot breath cause global warming? It gets hot under your arm pits and behind your legs, must be melting ice bergs with that body heat, right?
