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 home owners to use the sun to power everyday life: running your a/c unit, cleaning clothing, seeing TELEVISION, cooking supper. All while minimizing your carbon footprint, and without burning fossil fuels or putting a strain on the electrical grid. And while the environmental advantages of solar power are significant, many property owners find that the benefit, unique functions, and expense savings of owning a solar power system are a lot more alluring.
Top 10 Benefits of Solar Energy

Thanks to significant electrical power expense savings, the average American house owner pays off their solar panel system in 7 to eight years and sees an ROI of 20 percent or more.
#3 Protect against rising energy costs
One of the most clear cut advantages of solar panels is the capability to hedge utility costs. In the past 10 years, residential electrical power rates have gone up by approximately 3 percent each year. By purchasing a solar energy system now, you can fix your electricity rate and secure versus unpredictable increases in electrical power costs. If you're a business or house owner with changing capital, going solar also assists you much better forecast and manage your expenditures.

Numerous property owners select to finance their photovoltaic panels with among the "pay-as-you-go" funding options. This suggests that a third-party business-- the solar supplier-- owns the solar system and looks after installation, upkeep, tracking and repair works. You just pay the solar provider for electrical energy-- 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 Investment
The energy companies are infamous for their varying and undependable electricity costs. There is clearly an upward trend.

How Does Solar Energy Make Food?
solar energy doesnt make food
plants (phototroph) use the energy from sunlight to convert carbon dioxide and water into organic material to be utilized in cellular functions such as biosynthesis and respiration which then being consumed by animals. so animals are always consumers and plants are producers of energy
How To Find The Solar Energy?
I Need Help With My Chemistry...The Question Is The Average Solar Energy Received By A Horizontal Surface In The Summer In Springfield Is 3.5 X 10^ J/M^2 Hour. If A Home Has A Solar Panel With Dimensions 10.0 M By 25.0M How Many Joules Of Energy Will This Panel Absorb Over 8 Points....Please Help And Explain The Answer Or How U Did It
You have J/(m^2 hr). To get to J (ie energy) you want to multiply by something with units m^2 and hr (area and time)
If we assume the panel is rectangular you have data to work out its area and you're given time.
3.5*10^a * 10*25 * 8
a being the unknown exponent which you didn't put in the question
What Are Some Current Places Where Solar Energy Thermal (Heat) Is Being Used?
Google Is Being A Crappy Helper.
Solar thermal can be used to generate electricity in large power plants, or can be used to capture heat for water and space heating. Here's a good site on solar thermal electricity, http://www.ecoworld.com/energy-fuels/sol... I'm using solar thermal in New England to heat my domestic water for showers and washing, as well as to heat my house. Here's a description of it, http://www.altestore.com/gallery/Amy-Bea... It can be used to heat the water for radiant floors, or heat the air in forced hot air systems.
Solar thermal is used all around the world. China is the largest user of solar water heating, with Japan, Germany, Israel all closer behind. It is now required by law in Hawaii for new construction to install slar water heating, since it saves so much power instead of using electricity to heat water.
