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 use the sun to power daily life: running your air conditioning system, washing clothing, seeing TELEVISION, cooking dinner. All while lowering your carbon footprint, and without burning nonrenewable fuel sources or putting a pressure on the electrical grid. And while the environmental advantages of solar power are considerable, lots of residents find that the convenience, distinct features, and cost savings of owning a solar power system are a lot more attractive.
Top Ten Benefits of Solar Energy
#1 Significantly reduce and even remove your electric expenses
Whether you're a house owner, service, or not-for-profit, electrical energy costs can make up a big portion of your month-to-month expenses. With a solar panel system, you'll create totally free power for your system's whole 25+ year lifecycle. Even if you don't produce 100 percent of the energy you consume, solar will decrease your utility expenses and you'll still save a great deal of cash.
#2 Earn a fantastic return on your investment
Photovoltaic panels aren't an expenditure-- they're one of the best methods to invest, with returns rivaling those of more conventional investments like stocks and bonds. Thanks to considerable electrical energy bill savings, the average American homeowner settles their photovoltaic panel system in 7 to eight years and sees an ROI of 20 percent or more.
#3 Secure against increasing energy expenses
Among the most clear cut advantages of photovoltaic panels is the capability to hedge utility costs. In the previous 10 years, property electricity costs have gone up by an average of 3 percent each year. By buying a solar energy system now, you can fix your electricity rate and protect versus unforeseeable boosts in electrical energy expenses. If you're a company or property owner with rising and falling capital, going solar likewise helps you better forecast and manage your expenditures.
#4 Increase your home worth
Numerous research studies have actually found that homes equipped with solar energy systems have higher residential or commercial property worths and offer more quickly than non-solar houses. Appraisers are increasingly taking solar installations into consideration as they value homes at the time of a sale, and as homebuyers end up being more educated about solar, need for properties geared up with solar panel systems will continue to grow.
#5 Boost U.S. energy self-reliance
The sun is a near-infinite source of energy and a crucial element of attaining energy self-reliance in the United States. By increasing our capacity to create electricity from the sun, we can also insulate our country from cost changes in global energy markets.
#6 Create jobs and help your local economy
According to The Solar Foundation, the solar industry added tasks at a rate nearly 12 times faster than the overall U.S. economy in 2015, representing 1.2 percent of all tasks in the country. This development is anticipated to continue. Since solar-related jobs have the tendency to be greater paying and can not be outsourced, they are a substantial factor to the U.S. economy.
#7 Safeguard the environment
Solar is an excellent way to reduce your carbon footprint. Buildings are accountable for 38 percent of all carbon emissions in the United States, and going solar can substantially decrease that number. A common residential solar panel system will eliminate 3 to 4 lots of carbon emissions each year-- the equivalent of planting over 100 trees each year.
#8 Show your dedication to sustainability
Sustainability and business social obligation are necessary parts of a company's culture and worths. They likewise produce bottom line outcomes. Increasingly, customers and neighborhoods are acknowledging and rewarding businesses that decide to operate responsibly. Organisations are finding that "green" credentials are an effective driver of customer buying choices, developing goodwill and enhancing service outcomes.
#9 Start Conserving from Day 1
Solar purchase power contracts (PPAs) and solar leasing has actually made it possible for house owners to go solar for little or no cash down.
Lots of house owners select to fund their photovoltaic panels with one of the "pay-as-you-go" funding alternatives. This indicates that a third-party business-- the solar company-- owns the solar system and looks after setup, upkeep, tracking and repair works. You just pay the solar provider for electrical power-- less than you would've paid the energy business.
As of June 2013, 75% of all American houses have access to pay-as-you-go solar.
#10. Solar is a Secure Financial investment
The utility business are well-known for their fluctuating and unreliable electricity costs. There is clearly an upward pattern.
With solar panels and easy mathematics, we can determine how much electrical power will be created, and most notably, at exactly what cost, for a minimum of the next Twenty Years (repaired energy costs).
What are the various payment options?
We have many flexible purchasing agreements for customers who would like to install a new home solar system. There are three different payment options, making them a viable choice for customers of all budgets. The payment options include Lease, PPA, and Purchase.
- Low, fixed payments each month

Solar Panels And Electrocution?
Is There Any Chance Of Being Electrocuted By Solar Panels?
Is There A Risk For Firefighters When They Enter A Building Where There Is Solar Power And Stand In A Puddle Of Water If There Is Short Between The Solar Panels And The Water.
They Cut Normal Power Before Entering Buildings, But Do You Get Enough Juice From Residential Solar Panels To Consider This As A Risk?
solar panels are usually 12 or 24 volts for the smaller ones, and those voltages are pretty safe.
larger arrays can be connected in series or parallel, depending on the battery configuration. It's likely for a large installation to produce 48 volts or even higher, and those voltages can be dangerous.
Higher voltages are used on large installations to cut down on the cost of the wiring.
But, any solar array has an inverter somewhere, running off a battery, and that will output 120 or 240 VAC, and that is definitely dangerous.
So this raises an interesting point. Should all solar panel installations include a cutoff switch accessible to fire fighters? It looks like they should. The switch has to cutoff the voltage from the array, and also turn off the inverter.
edit: but switching off the voltage from the array is not enough, as the array is still putting out power (assuming the sun is shining). One possibility is to use a multiple pole relay located very near the array to open both + and – leads from the array. Thus there is no path for the current to get to ground. If water got everything wet, the array would short across itself but still be isolated from ground. But what if the relay fails?
Max, you seem to have the idea that it takes a lot of current to be dangerous. No, 20mA can shock you, 50mA can kill you, and there are a lot of arrays that can put out 48 volts at many amps.
"edit: you could place a normal off switch on the solar array and hook it up to the fire alarm for industrial systems, the switch should open even when power fails. And you are correct in saying that it is the current that kills, but you still have to have enough volts to get a decent current trough a human (no mater what the max current output is). The real question is then do solar panels have a fixed current output (then its dangerous) or a fixed voltage (then with max 50 volts is even wet not a problem)"
sorry, 50 volts IS a problem, lots of people have been killed from 50 volts. I admit it is not as likely as with 100 or 200 volts, but it is still possible, specially with a lot of water around. I don't remember the UL spec offhand, but I think it is somewhere around 20 volts.
solar panels have a variable voltage, dependent on the amount of light on them. You have to plan on the highest possible voltage. The current output is usually in the tens of amps or higher, more than enough to kill, so it is the voltage that will determine the current through your body.
edit3: dividing up the world into constant voltage sources and constant current sources is meaningless, as neither exists in real life. All voltage sources are a imperfect voltage source or an imperfect current source or something in between.
Where Is Silicon Found And What Is It Used For?
I Have To Do A Project For Science And I Need To Know The Answer To What I Am Asking
I think sand is silicon. It used for Solar Panels and Transistors in Electronics also I believe Glass. This about all I know. I not make any promises. Do a search for Silicon.
Below I found you 2 links. The first is Wikipedia and the second is "How Stuff Works". The second always a good place to learn some things if they have that subject.
Which Is Better To Use, Windmill Or Solar Panel? For Electricity?
Which Is Better To Use?
For My Own Island...
Solar Panel. Windmill produces less energy.
How Much Power Does A Solar Panel Generate?
Given That I Am Going To Purchase A Solar Panel To Charge My Cell Phones And Other Gadgets, I Would Like To Know What The Ammount Of Power Produced By A 6 Watt Solar Panel Is Under Regular Circumstances. (Ie Partial Sun, Full Sun, Cloudy)
That site tells you somewhat about the cost of solar panels and their MAXIMUM output.
Now some who have these panels claim output, in daily terms, 8 times as great as maximum output, which says they are counting on 8 hours of effective sunlight. In California Desert that is sound.
You will discover that Ontario Power grid is planning for 3 hours to 4 hours of maximum output . Based on that 3 to 4 hours of maximum output, it would take close to 20 years to recover your cost at the price Ontario pays for solar power. The deal locks you in so that you can not get more money as electricity prices go up, and do not lose if electricity prices go down over that 20 years.
