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 everyday life: running your air conditioning system, washing clothing, watching TV, cooking supper. All while minimizing your carbon footprint, and without burning nonrenewable fuel sources or putting a pressure on the electrical grid. And while the ecological benefits of solar power are considerable, lots of residents discover that the convenience, special features, and cost savings of owning a solar power system are much more enticing.
Top 10 Benefits of Solar Energy
#1 Significantly reduce or perhaps remove your electric costs
Whether you're a property owner, business, or not-for-profit, electrical energy costs can make up a big part of your month-to-month costs. With a solar panel system, you'll generate free power for your system's whole 25+ year lifecycle. Even if you don't produce One Hundred Percent of the energy you take in, solar will lower your energy costs and you'll still save a great deal of loan.
#2 Make a fantastic return on your financial investment
Solar panels aren't an expenditure-- they're one of the very best ways to invest, with returns rivaling those of more conventional investments like stocks and bonds. Thanks to substantial electrical power bill cost savings, the average American property owner settles their solar panel system in 7 to eight years and sees an ROI of 20 percent or more.
#3 Secure versus increasing energy expenses
One of the most clear cut benefits of photovoltaic panels is the ability to hedge energy costs. In the previous ten years, domestic electricity rates have actually increased by an average of three percent annually. By purchasing a solar energy system now, you can repair your electricity rate and secure against unpredictable boosts in electricity costs. If you're an organisation or house owner with changing capital, going solar also helps you much better projection and manage your expenses.
#4 Increase your home or business worth
Numerous research studies have actually found that homes geared up with solar energy systems have higher residential or commercial property values and offer more rapidly than non-solar homes. Appraisers are progressively taking solar installations into consideration as they value houses at the time of a sale, and as homebuyers end up being more informed about solar, demand for homes equipped with solar panel systems will continue to grow.
#5 Increase U.S. energy self-reliance
The sun is a near-infinite source of energy and a key component of achieving energy independence in the United States. By increasing our capacity to produce electrical energy from the sun, we can likewise insulate our nation from price fluctuations in worldwide energy markets.
#6 Develop jobs and assist your local economy
According to The Solar Foundation, the solar market included 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 nation. This development is expected to continue. Since solar-related jobs tend to be greater paying and can not be outsourced, they are a significant contributor to the United States economy.
#7 Secure the environment
Solar is a great method to reduce your carbon footprint. Structures are accountable for 38 percent of all carbon emissions in the United States, and going solar can significantly decrease that number. A typical residential photovoltaic panel system will get rid of three to four loads of carbon emissions each year-- the equivalent of planting over 100 trees yearly.
#8 Demonstrate your commitment to sustainability
Sustainability and business social duty are essential parts of an organization's culture and worths. They likewise produce bottom line results. Increasingly, customers and neighborhoods are acknowledging and rewarding businesses that decide to operate responsibly. Organisations are finding that "green" credentials are a powerful driver of customer purchasing choices, producing goodwill and improving service outcomes.
#9 Start Saving 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.
Numerous house owners opt to fund their solar panels with among the "pay-as-you-go" funding choices. This implies that a third-party business-- the solar service provider-- owns the solar system and takes care of setup, maintenance, tracking and repair works. You simply pay the solar supplier for electricity-- less than you would've paid the energy company.
As of June 2013, 75% of all American homes have access to pay-as-you-go solar.
#10. Solar is a Secure Investment
The energy companies are well-known for their varying and undependable electrical energy costs. There is clearly an upward pattern.
With photovoltaic panels and easy math, we can determine just how much electricity will be generated, and most significantly, at exactly what price, for at least the next 20 years (fixed energy expenses).

Frequently Asked Questions
Solar Electricity Panels Do They Work?
I Already Have Solar/Gas Water Heating, But Was Wondering If Getting Solar Panels For Electricity Installed Was A Good Idea.
Why of course. Just buying them is the big buzz.
Companies are doing thousands if not millions of dollars a month only by selling Solar Panel.
I did a little search and I found that it costs 7000$ to install solar panels for an average roof.
If you're a hardcore green, then Bon Appétit, I'm not preventing you to buy it. All I'm just saying is that it'll take months if not years to get that money back.
It is good for electricity, and I saw it worked on a company building called Better Place, so save the world!
What Do I Need For Off Grid Solar Energy System?
I Know You Need The Panel,Power Inverter A Deep Cycle 12 Volt Rechargeable Battery What Else Would I Need?
This probably isn't the venue to ask.
You'll need solar panels,
A large battery or set of batteries,
And an inverter to create AC.
"a deep cycle 12 volt rechargeable battery" won't be enough.
A 100 amp hour battery can store 1.2 KwH.
A house can easily use far more than that.
Our grid connected system generated about 27 Kwh a day for the past week.
That's more than we used, but we'll catch up this week because it's going to be 100 degrees and we'll have the AC on.
But you have to plan for winter when you can have several days with little or no sun and not a lot of sun even when it is shining.
So there are several things to consider:
- Where you are
- How many days you're likely to go with little or no sun in the winter
- How many days are you willing to do without electricity
- Whether you're going to get a supplemental gas or diesel generator
- How much electricity you're likely to use when everything is running
- How well you can mount solar panels, facing south, with no obstructions
My guess would be that if you're asking here, you probably need to pay someone to design the system for you.
How Long Until Solar Power (Solar Panels) Becomes Cheap?
Between 5 and 15 years.
Current thin film technology, which is the current hope for inexpensive solar panels, are just starting to get commericalized. At the solar conferences that I've been to in the last few months, I saw no vendors actually selling thin film technology, but I saw at least two companies selling fabrication lines for them.
The presentations that I saw predict a 5 to 7 year horizen for thin film to become cost competitive with some of the more common energy production equipment. Assuming that these presentations are a bit overly optimistic, I'd suspect it might be a bit longer (but still within the forseeable future.)
Do a google on "thin film solar cost competitive" and see what comes up.
Would Solar Panels In Space Obtain More Solar Energy?
I Figured Since Theres No Ozone It'D Be Easier To Collect More. Idk How Wed Get It To Where We Need It Though
Yes, they would.
In space, solar panels can be aligned to receive a consist ant amount of direct sunlight. On Earth, the amount of direct sunlight the solar panel receives is depends on the time of year. The Earth's tilt on its axis is responsible for this. When the tilt is away, winter happens and the direct sunlight is less. When the tilt is toward, summer happens and the direct sunlight is more. Everything in between is spring and fall.
The next thing that can effect solar panels obviously, are clouds. They do make the amount of solar energy harder to obtain during the day but there are solar panels(more expensive) that can trap a higher percent of sunlight when it is cloudy.
The best parts of the earth to get the most out of solar panels are the deserts. There is only one place better than that on Earth which is anywhere the ozone layer has been depleted. Because then all of the radiation that is in space is being received on earth. Making the solar panels very efficient.
How Are Solar Panels Practical?
Okay So Im Lookin 4 An Article Which Explains How Practical, Wokable, Feasible Solar Panels Are. Only Positive Points Please :) Give Me The Link. Plz Help!!!!
Solar panels collect solar radiation from the sun and actively convert that energy to electricity. Solar panels are comprised of several individual solar cells. These solar cells function similarly to large semiconductors and utilize a large-area p-n junction diode. When the solar cells are exposed to sunlight, the p-n junction diodes convert the energy from sunlight into usable electrical energy. The energy generated from photons striking the surface of the solar panel allows electrons to be knocked out of their orbits and released, and electric fields in the solar cells pull these free electrons in a directional current, from which metal contacts in the solar cell can generate electricity. The more solar cells in a solar panel and the higher the quality of the solar cells, the more total electrical output the solar panel can produce. The conversion of sunlight to usable electrical energy has been dubbed the Photovoltaic Effect.
The photovoltaic effect arises from the properties of the p-n junction diode, as such there are no moving parts in a solar panel.
Solar Insolation and Solar Panel Efficiency
Solar Insolation is a measure of how much solar radiation a given solar panel or surface recieves. The greater the insolation, the more solar energy can be converted to electricity by the solar panel. Click to learn more about solar insolation.
Other factors that affect the output of solar panels are weather conditions, shade caused by obstructions to direct sunlight, and the angle and position at which the solar panel is installed. Solar panels function the best when placed in direct sunlight, away from obstructions that might cast shade, and in areas with high regional solar insolation ratings.
Solar panel efficiency can be optimized by using dynamic mounts that follow the position of the sun in the sky and rotate the solar panel to get the maximum amount of direct exposure during the day as possible. For more information on solar panel efficiency through the use of mounts, see our section on solar panel mounts and accessories.
