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 homeowner to utilize the sun to power daily life: running your ac system, washing clothes, watching TELEVISION, cooking supper. All while minimizing your carbon footprint, and without burning fossil fuels or putting a stress on the electrical grid. And while the environmental benefits of solar power are considerable, lots of property owners find that the convenience, distinct features, and cost savings of owning a solar power system are a lot more enticing.
Top Ten Advantages of Solar Energy
#1 Drastically reduce and even remove your electrical expenses
Whether you're a property owner, service, or nonprofit, electricity costs can comprise a big portion of your monthly costs. With a solar panel system, you'll generate free power for your system's whole 25+ year lifecycle. Even if you do not produce 100 percent of the energy you consume, solar will decrease your energy bills and you'll still save a lot of loan.
#2 Make a fantastic return on your investment
Photovoltaic panels aren't a cost-- they're one of the best ways to invest, with returns matching those of more traditional investments like stocks and bonds. Thanks to substantial electrical power bill cost savings, the typical American homeowner pays off their solar panel system in seven to eight years and sees an ROI of 20 percent or more.
#3 Protect against rising energy costs
Among the most clear cut advantages of solar panels is the capability to hedge energy prices. In the previous 10 years, property electrical power costs have increased by an average of 3 percent annually. By investing in a solar energy system now, you can repair your electrical power rate and safeguard against unpredictable increases in electrical energy costs. If you're a company or property owner with fluctuating capital, going solar also helps you better projection and handle your expenses.
#4 Increase your house value
Multiple research studies have discovered that homes equipped with solar energy systems have greater residential or commercial property worths and sell faster than non-solar houses. Appraisers are significantly taking solar setups into factor to consider as they value homes at the time of a sale, and as homebuyers become more educated about solar, demand for homes 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 an essential element of accomplishing energy self-reliance in the United States. By increasing our capacity to create electrical power from the sun, we can also insulate our nation from price changes in worldwide energy markets.
#6 Create jobs and assist your local economy
Inning accordance with The Solar Structure, the solar industry added jobs 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 development is expected to continue. Since solar-related tasks have the tendency to be higher paying and can not be contracted out, they are a substantial contributor to the United States economy.
#7 Secure the environment
Solar is an excellent method to decrease your carbon footprint. Buildings are accountable for 38 percent of all carbon emissions in the U.S., and going solar can significantly reduce that number. A common domestic photovoltaic panel system will get rid of three to 4 lots of carbon emissions each year-- the equivalent of planting over 100 trees annually.
#8 Show your commitment to sustainability
Sustainability and business social responsibility are necessary elements of a company's culture and values. They likewise produce bottom line results. Progressively, customers and communities are recognizing and rewarding businesses that select to run properly. Businesses are discovering that "green" qualifications are a powerful chauffeur of consumer purchasing choices, creating goodwill and improving organisation results.
#9 Start Conserving from Day 1
Solar purchase power contracts (PPAs) and solar leasing has actually made it possible for property owners to go solar for little or no loan down.
Lots of property owners opt to finance their photovoltaic panels with among the "pay-as-you-go" financing options. This implies that a third-party company-- the solar supplier-- owns the planetary system and looks after setup, upkeep, tracking and repairs. You just pay the solar service 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 Investment
The energy companies are notorious for their fluctuating and undependable electricity costs. There is clearly an upward pattern.
With solar panels and simple math, we can compute what does it cost? electricity will be created, and most notably, at exactly what rate, for a minimum of the next 20 years (repaired energy costs).

Solar Panel And Battery Time Charge Question?
Hello Guys. I Put Up A Simple Setup For Just Emergencies And Low Loads. My Specs On The Solar Panel Are:
Max Power = 85W
Max Power Voltage 17.4
Max Power Current 4.91
Open Circuit Voltage 21.8
Short Circuit Current 5.29
Max System Voltage 1000
Im Using A Kirklan Deep Cycle Marine Battery 115 Amp Hour And A Cheap Sunforce 7Amp Charge Controller 7A Max/14.2V/13V
My Question Is...Me Being A Non Connoisseur , How Long Will My Solar Panel Take To Charge My Battery? I Know That I Wont Be Sucking It To 50% And My Only Load There Would Be A Stand Alone Fan 50 Watts That I Intent To Load Whenever The Power Goes Off For About 6 Hours. I Live In Puerto Rico , My Solar Panel Is Oriented South, Its A Movable Unit On A Dolly, Like The Ones In Diy On Youtube. And We Have Full Sun All Year Long.
I Thank You And Appreciate Any Help On This Matter, Cause I Know Nothing About It, I Just Know Is Better Than Buying A Noisy Generator.
Lead acid batteries are 50% efficient at charging and 92% efficient on discharging. However you don't want to deep discharge a lead acid battery and you don't want to overcharge a lead acid battery. There are three stages to charging a lead acid battery, a bulk charge, a topping charge and a float charge. The bulk charge is current limited ( the 7 A max ), the topping charge which is your 14.2 V and the float charge which is your 13 V. However a conservatively designed system would only use half the capacity of your battery in a cycle and would assume charging to 80% of charge. That would be charging the battery from 862.5 AH to 920 AH, a difference of 57.5 AH. At 12 V, that's 690 WH, however the batteries are only 50% efficient at charging so you'll need 1,380 WH to charge that 690 WH. You said you had six hours of usable Sunshine and your panel is rated at 85 W, well 85 W * 6 = 510 WH so you only have enough to charge 15% of your battery in a day.

How Do Solar Powered Calculators Work?
I Am Doing A Research Project, And I Need Help. How Do Solar Powered Calculators Work? How Its Used, Who Invented It, What Year. And Such. Please? Thanks.
all I can help with is how it works. They have solar panels on them that transfer sunlight into energy and then that energy powers the calculator just like batteries would. If I had more time, I'd be happy to look up the info for you. Try e-mailing me later.
Anybody Install Solar Panels Themselves?
Got A Quote For About $11K Today For Solar Panels To Save Me About $100 A Month On My Electric Bill. I Was Just Wondering If Anyone Had Successfully Bought And Installed Their Own And How It Worked For You?
i have always been interested in it but the storage (batteries) and power grid tie in (to get paid for excess) technicalities made me shy away.
since your getting it installed im sure labor is a huge part of that -ebay has tons of the equipment.
I think wind may be a good home renewable source depending on where you live (cheaper than solar if you got the wind and space)
I would doubly check any goverment offerings - I know they used to and maybe still do offer sizable credits if you are within the bureacratic standards so make sure the installers work with you on that.
good luck -its new - and going to be a hassle to get right but the world needs more like you. willing to pay more now for a better tommorow (and not just $ wise)
you should come out ahead as interest rates and market provides little value on that cash and saving any equipment falure you sound good.
does the price include the batteries for all your produce kwh's? panels and labor aside batteries are the next big one
