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 utilize the sun to power daily life: running your a/c, cleaning clothes, seeing TELEVISION, cooking dinner. All while lowering your carbon footprint, and without burning fossil fuels or putting a pressure on the electrical grid. And while the environmental benefits of solar power are significant, many home owners find that the benefit, special features, and expense savings of owning a solar power system are much more alluring.
Top 10 Advantages of Solar Energy

#2 Earn a great return on your investment
Photovoltaic panels aren't an expenditure-- they are among the finest methods to invest, with returns rivaling those of more standard financial investments like stocks and bonds. Thanks to considerable electrical energy bill cost savings, the average American house owner pays off their photovoltaic panel system in 7 to 8 years and sees an ROI of 20 percent or more.
#3 Secure versus increasing energy expenses
One of the most clear cut advantages of solar panels is the capability to hedge utility costs. In the past 10 years, property electricity rates have increased by approximately three percent annually. By purchasing a solar energy system now, you can fix your electricity rate and safeguard against unpredictable increases in electricity expenses. If you're a service or property owner with rising and falling cash circulation, going solar likewise helps you much better forecast and handle your expenditures.
#4 Boost your home value
Numerous studies have actually discovered that houses equipped with solar energy systems have higher residential or commercial property values and offer faster than non-solar houses. Appraisers are increasingly taking solar setups into factor to consider as they value homes at the time of a sale, and as property buyers become more educated about solar, need 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 an essential part of attaining energy self-reliance in the United States. By increasing our capability to produce electricity from the sun, we can likewise insulate our nation from cost changes in global energy markets.
#6 Create jobs and help your local economy
Inning accordance with The Solar Foundation, the solar market included jobs at a rate almost 12 times faster than the general U.S. economy in 2015, representing 1.2 percent of all jobs in the nation. This growth is expected to continue. Due to the fact that solar-related tasks have the tendency to be greater paying and can not be outsourced, they are a significant contributor to the United States economy.

Increasingly, consumers and communities are recognizing and rewarding services that decide to operate responsibly. Businesses are discovering that "green" qualifications are an effective chauffeur of consumer buying choices, creating goodwill and improving business outcomes.
#9 Start Conserving from Day 1
Solar purchase power agreements (PPAs) and solar leasing has actually made it possible for property owners to go solar for little or no loan down.
Many house owners opt to fund their photovoltaic panels with one of the "pay-as-you-go" funding options. This indicates that a third-party company-- the solar provider-- owns the solar system and takes care of installation, upkeep, tracking and repairs. You merely pay the solar service provider for electrical energy-- less than you would've paid the utility 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 energy business are infamous for their fluctuating and unreliable electrical energy costs. There is clearly an upward pattern.
With photovoltaic panels and basic mathematics, we can determine just how much electricity will be generated, and most notably, at what cost, for a minimum of the next Twenty Years (repaired energy expenses).

Frequently Asked Questions
How Big Of A Solar Panel Do You Need To Power A House?
It would depend on a) how much electricty you need for your house b) how much sun shine you get where you live.
The easy answer is "a lot".
Before looking into this you should first concern yourself with reducing your current electricty usage.
The average size of a solar system needed for a house would be approx 2,000 watts. This would however get you power for about 25 lightbulbs.
Also - this would be about 25 feet long by 10-12 feet high, so the initial cost would be somewhat large (though they do last a long time).
Its also worth considering mixing it with wind power if you have a suitable location in your garden.
What Are The Benefits Of Solar Panel Heating?
What Are The Benefits Of Solar Panel Heating?
What Does It Cost For Solar Panels?
Any Other Important Facts About It?
Solar Air Heaters are a great way to supplement the heat in your house. They don't make electricity, they make heat. The box outside the house heats up, and a fan blows the hot air into the house powered by a small solar electric panel. The result, 100% free heat! This morning it was 50 degrees F outside, my kitchen was 70 degrees with my heat turned off. For free. On 20 degree days, it blows 100 degree air into the house. Depending on the size, the heater costs about $1200 - 1600. http://www.altestore.com/store/Solar-Air...
Solar water heating is another great way to make heat from the sun. The sun heats up the water flowing through the solar collectors outside, and transfers the heat into your water heater. Solar water heaters can heat up to 75% of your hot water needs. Additionally, with a larger system, you can use that hot water to heat your radiant floors or panels, or integrate with a forced hot air system to heat your home.
Trying to make electricity to make heat is a very expensive way to go about it. The sun is VERY efficient at making heat, not so efficient at making electricity.
You can also find instructions to make your own solar heaters at http://www.builditsolar.com/Projects/Spa...
I Want To Build A House That Is Energy Efficient And Wanted To Know How I Might Build One That Stands On Its Own.
i would research what they call "solar passive" homes. this is merely the building design taking advantage of your latitude and using the sun and surface area of the home to dramatically reduce your heating and cooling costs. you can also use high-grade insulation, solar panels and/or hydroelectricity, etc. to supplement your electricity needs (and lowering your bills). you can look into straw-bale homes (not as eccentric as the name implies) or "monolithic domes" (these are expensive but will last hundreds of years - they are fire proof, will not be destroyed in a hurricane or tornado, and can even be struck by lightning).
How Long Will It Take A 12V 150Ma Solar Panel To Fully Charge A Car Battery?
Hey Powergland, Flash is quite right. That panel will never actually recharge your car battery. A lead acid battery loses about 3% of its charge per week even if it is not used, and more if it stays connected to the car, so the clock and alarm can function. A 150ma of charge, even for 8 hours a day will barely keep up with the normal losses. Turns out that's exactly what those little dashboard top panels are for. If you park your car at the airport for example and go away on a 10 day trip, it is assumed your battery is near full when you plug in the panel, it really just keeps it up until you return, it isn't going to recharge a dead battery even in full sun in the desert.
You could put a larger panel in it's place, or connect several if you like. One is enough to keep the battery up, the next could be a recharger, but will still take several weeks. A third will cut that time down to several days, and so on. There is a good book at the library called, The Complete Battery Book by Richard Perez, you could just read the chapters on lead acid batteries and become fairly knowledgable on the subject in half an hour or so. Good luck, and take care , Rudydoo
So Nuclear Power Isn'T Containable And Safe , Electrical Grids Are Iffy, What'S Next Solar Power?
Is The Sun The God Of The Elite And Is That What They Want? Wind Turbines Aren'T Very Efficient Either.
Yes, nuclear power has never been safe there's always an element of disaster lurking in the shadows. Unfortunately, it is quite efficient until something goes awry. Could the same thing happen here in the USA? Sure! The question is when and how bad it will be.
Wind turbines are useless unless you live off some ocean.
Solar panels are quite efficient as long as some strong sunlight is readily available.
Solar fusion is our next best bet, because it generates that high-pressure steam needed to spin those large megawatt turbine generators.
We already have in the scorching hot deserts of our Southwest all the tools needed too generate the power for our entire nation's needs. "YES WE DO"
The reason were not doing it right now this year is because that evil monster called greed often has its way of winning new greedy converts, that glorify the nuclear power industry with billions each and every year. Now as a bit of a scientist who has experimented from time to time over the years with no federal funding with the concept of hot fusion several other similar technologies.
All we need to do is build some gigantic to scale facilities that utilize huge underground fuel-cell storage systems capable of operating the entire nationwide power grid for weeks when bad weather arises. The trick is not just using the sun incredible heat energy to generate this high-pressure steam. No, it's the storage of that reserve power which will make this power generating proposal work for the benefit of all God's children.
That's why our generous creator supplied us with radiation free solar
