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 house owners to use the sun to power everyday life: running your air conditioning system, washing clothing, enjoying TV, cooking supper. All while decreasing your carbon footprint, and without burning nonrenewable fuel sources or putting a strain on the electrical grid. And while the environmental benefits of solar power are considerable, numerous homeowners find that the convenience, distinct functions, and cost savings of owning a solar power system are even more attractive.
Top Ten Benefits of Solar Energy
#1 Drastically lower or even remove your electric expenses
Whether you're a homeowner, company, or nonprofit, electricity costs can comprise a big part of your regular monthly expenses. With a photovoltaic panel system, you'll create totally free power for your system's entire 25+ year lifecycle. Even if you don't produce One Hundred Percent of the energy you take in, solar will minimize your utility expenses and you'll still save a lot of money.
#2 Earn a great return on your financial investment
Solar panels aren't an expenditure-- they are among the finest ways to invest, with returns matching those of more standard financial investments like stocks and bonds. Thanks to significant electrical energy costs cost savings, the typical American house owner pays off their solar panel system in seven to eight years and sees an ROI of 20 percent or more.
#3 Protect against increasing energy costs
Among the most clear cut benefits of solar panels is the ability to hedge utility rates. In the previous 10 years, residential electrical energy prices have actually increased by an average of three percent each year. By purchasing a solar energy system now, you can fix your electricity rate and secure versus unpredictable increases in electricity costs. If you're a service or house owner with rising and falling money circulation, going solar also assists you much better projection and handle your expenses.
#4 Boost your home or business worth
Numerous studies have actually discovered that houses geared up with solar energy systems have greater property worths and sell quicker than non-solar homes. Appraisers are significantly taking solar installations into factor to consider as they value homes at the time of a sale, and as homebuyers become more informed about solar, demand for residential or commercial properties geared up 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 accomplishing energy independence in the United States. By increasing our capacity to create electricity from the sun, we can also insulate our nation from price variations in worldwide energy markets.
#6 Create jobs and assist your local economy
According to The Solar Structure, the solar industry included jobs at a rate almost 12 times faster than the general U.S. economy in 2015, representing 1.2 percent of all tasks in the country. This development is expected to continue. Due to the fact that solar-related jobs have the tendency to be higher paying and can not be outsourced, they are a significant contributor to the U.S. economy.
#7 Safeguard the environment
Solar is a terrific method to reduce your carbon footprint. Structures are accountable for 38 percent of all carbon emissions in the U.S., and going solar can substantially decrease that number. A typical domestic photovoltaic panel system will get rid of 3 to four heaps of carbon emissions each year-- the equivalent of planting over 100 trees annually.
#8 Demonstrate your commitment to sustainability
Sustainability and business social obligation are essential parts of a company's culture and values. They also produce bottom line results. Significantly, consumers and neighborhoods are acknowledging and rewarding services that opt to operate properly. Businesses are finding that "green" qualifications are an effective driver of consumer buying decisions, producing goodwill and improving organisation results.
#9 Start Saving from Day 1
Solar purchase power contracts (PPAs) and solar leasing has made it possible for house owners to go solar for little or no cash down.
Numerous homeowners opt to finance their solar panels with among the "pay-as-you-go" funding options. This implies that a third-party business-- the solar provider-- owns the solar system and takes care of installation, maintenance, monitoring and repair works. You simply pay the solar provider for electrical power-- 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 infamous for their varying and undependable electrical energy costs. There is plainly an upward pattern.
With solar panels and easy math, we can compute how much electricity will be produced, and most significantly, at exactly what rate, for a minimum of the next Twenty Years (fixed energy expenses).

Frequently Asked Questions
If Your Domestic Pitched Roof Is Overloaded Due To Solar Panels -What Are Signs Of This?
Presumably If The Roof Is Overloaded With Solar Panels And Needs Strenthening Then Before The Snow Arrives Or The High Winds Come There Will Be Some Signs Of This To Look Out For? What Are They In A Domestic Pitched Roof With A Frames With Like A W Support In Them! And Also Ehat Is The Most Likley Result Of A Failure. Will One A Frame Break Will The Whole Roof Fall In Etc.
Whoever installed the panels should have looked into this before installing.
Photovoltaic panels are light, perhaps 3 lbs. per square foot, which is less than the roofing material under them. So if the roof is sagging or the underlying rafters are cracking or something, then the roof was about to go, anyway.
If you're talking about a solar water heater of the type with a large tank on the roof, that's a different matter. The installer should have paid special attention to the roof strength for this sort of thing. At least in my area, a building inspection would have been required.
I Have 12V Batt(26Ah),10Amp Scc(Mppt-Tracer) With Mt-5 Meter,70W Solar Panel 24V?
My Mt-5 Meter Reading Of My Battery Is 100% When It'S Full...And The Mppt Scc (Tracer) Led Indicator Is Blinking Green Means It'S Full.... But During Sunset Around 5:00 Pm The Percentage Of My Battery Drops To 66% And At Around 5:30 Pm It Drops To 57%(Solid Green Led Indicator Of Scc) Without Any Load.... What'S Wrong With My System???? :(
you're charging a 12v battery with a 24v solar panel and you likely have your charge controller set to 24v too(hopefully anyway), that's your problem.......you overcharged and broke the battery. only use identical voltages when working with any electricity. the reading you're getting is from the solar panels and the percentage drop is from lowering light levels and any remaining power storage the broken battery is capable of. to fix it, you just need to get 2 12v batteries and hook them up in series(positive to negative) to make a 24v battery bank able to handle your solar panel's voltage output and hook it up to your system like a big battery, that's about it.
How Do I Solar Power My Camper Site?
I Have Property In A Very Rural Area With No Utilities Close By And Would Like To Know How Many Solar Panels,Batteries, Charge Controler, Anf Power Inverter, Would Be Needed To Make A Stand Alone Power System That Would Run My Entire Camper?
We run a full-size refrigerator, lighting for 500 sq. ft, an entertainment center, a microwave, 2 computers, and a phone signal booster amplifier. We have 800 watts of solar panels, a 60 amp charge controller, 10 deep discharge batteries, and a 2.5 kW inverter. A backup generator runs the table saw- which draws too much power for the inverter- and a 75-amp charger if it's been cloudy for 2 days straight. System has been operating for 3 years, no problems. Will be upgrading to 16 batteries and 1.2 kW of panels this fall so that we can run a freezer and go 4 days without sun before using the generator.
Can I Use Solar With Inverter In Day Time Without Using Battries?
That is called a grid-tied inverter. It converts the DC power from the panels to AC and puts it into the electric panel in your house. You cannot use it standalone without the electric company connected as well. And if the power goes out on the grid, your inverter will turn off as well, even during a sunny day.
What Type Of Electrical Wires Are Used To Install A Solar Panel On The Roof?
I Have A Module Panel Which Is Suppose To Transfer Dc To Ac Electric. Is The Wires Soldered On The Back Of The Panel Or Any Metal On The Sides? What Colors Are The Wires?
What model panel? I seriously doubt that the Panel has a built in inverter. Most inverters are installed in the basement near the main electrical panel.
DC goes to the inverter from the panels.
For Outdoor electrical installation most local electrical codes require conduit (pipe).
Check with your local electrical inspector or ask a local contractor
