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 air conditioning system, cleaning clothing, watching TV, cooking supper. All while lowering your carbon footprint, and without burning nonrenewable fuel sources or putting a strain on the electrical grid. And while the ecological advantages of solar power are substantial, many homeowners discover that the convenience, distinct features, and expense savings of owning a solar power system are even more enticing.
Top Ten Advantages of Solar Energy
#1 Dramatically lower and even remove your electric expenses
Whether you're a house owner, organization, or nonprofit, electrical energy expenses can make up a large part of your month-to-month expenses. With a solar panel system, you'll generate complimentary power for your system's entire 25+ year lifecycle. Even if you don't produce 100 percent of the energy you consume, solar will decrease your utility bills and you'll still conserve a great deal of cash.
#2 Earn a great return on your financial investment
Solar panels aren't a cost-- they're one of the best ways to invest, with returns equaling those of more traditional investments like stocks and bonds. Thanks to significant electrical energy costs savings, the typical American house owner pays off their photovoltaic panel system in 7 to 8 years and sees an ROI of 20 percent or more.
#3 Safeguard against increasing energy expenses
Among the most clear cut advantages of solar panels is the ability to hedge utility costs. In the previous ten years, residential electrical energy rates have increased by an average of three percent annually. By investing in a solar energy system now, you can fix your electrical energy rate and secure versus unpredictable increases in electricity costs. If you're a business or property owner with ever-changing money flow, going solar also helps you much better forecast and handle your expenses.
#4 Boost your home worth
Several research studies have actually discovered that homes geared up with solar energy systems have greater property worths and sell quicker than non-solar homes. Appraisers are increasingly taking solar setups into factor to consider as they value houses 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 a key component of achieving energy self-reliance in the United States. By increasing our capability to generate electrical power 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 Structure, the solar industry included tasks at a rate almost 12 times faster than the overall 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 jobs have the tendency to be greater paying and can not be contracted out, they are a considerable factor to the U.S. economy.
#7 Safeguard the environment
Solar is a fantastic way to minimize your carbon footprint. Buildings are accountable for 38 percent of all carbon emissions in the U.S., and going solar can considerably decrease that number. A common property solar panel system will get rid of three to four lots of carbon emissions each year-- the equivalent of planting over 100 trees yearly.
#8 Show your commitment to sustainability
Sustainability and business social responsibility are necessary components of an organization's culture and values. They likewise produce bottom line outcomes. Increasingly, customers and neighborhoods are acknowledging and rewarding services that decide to operate responsibly. Businesses are finding that "green" credentials are a powerful driver of consumer buying choices, developing goodwill and enhancing company outcomes.
#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.
Lots of property owners opt to fund their solar panels with one of the "pay-as-you-go" funding choices. This means that a third-party company-- the solar company-- owns the planetary system and takes care of installation, maintenance, tracking and repairs. You merely pay the solar supplier for electricity-- less than you would've paid the utility company.
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 energy business are well-known for their changing and undependable electrical power costs. There is plainly an upward trend.
With photovoltaic panels and easy mathematics, we can calculate what does it cost? electricity will be created, and most significantly, at what cost, for a minimum of the next Twenty Years (fixed 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
- System insurance for 20 years, including maintenance
- Flexible end-of-term options, including system upgrade, lease extension, and free panel removal
Power Purchase Agreement (PPA)
- We own the solar panel system
- $0 down for installation
- Customers only pay for the solar energy that they use
- Customer pays for the system upfront and owns the system
- System monitoring and maintenance for 20 years
- Receive 30% federal tax credit
- See a return on investment within 7-10 years
What happens when the contract for my lease is finished?
We provide our customers with a few different options for when their lease contract is up. Customers can upgrade their equipment to the newest solar technology available, extend the agreement, or have the panels removed at no cost.
What is the warranty?
The Lease and PPA include a 20-year warranty during the lifetime of the system. This warranty exceeds that of most other solar installers’ warranties.

How To Calculate Electricity Generated By A Solar Panel?
What Information Will I Need Before?
How To Calculate The Energy Output ( In Kwh), Voltage
A panel will produce a voltage and an amperage (current). Both will depend on the panel, the amount of light and the load attached to the panel.
Watts = amps * volts
1W = 1A * 1V
If the panel output 12 volts at 1 amp then it would produce 12V * 1A = 12W
V = i * R
Voltage = amps * resistance
Say there is a load of 12 ohms across the panel electrodes and 12 volts is measured across the load.
then 12V = i * 12 ohms
Therefore the current is 1A 1A*12ohms = 12 volts
Could We Replace Gas Stations With Solar Panels?
Would It Be Possible To Replace Gas Stations With Solar Stations? For Example, Maybe We Could Have The Roof Of The Station Be A Huge Solar Panel And Instead Of The Gas Hole For Your Car, We Could Have A Certain Type Of Outlet. For The Gas Hose, We Could Have A Plug That We Would Plug Into Our Car And It Would &Quot;Charge&Quot; Our Car. Is This Possible?
P.S No Short/Unexplained Answers Please.
Technically yes. The energy from the Sun can separate an oxygen atom from CO2 to produce CO and an oxygen atom from H2O to produce H2, releasing O2. The mixture of CO and H2 is called syngas and will self assemble into linear hydrocarbons in the Fischer Tropsch reaction producing a carbon neutral synthetic gasoline or diesel as the carbon is from atmospheric CO2. Batch mode lab tests have already been successful, an actual reactor is going online soon, the Fischer Tropsch process is already in use to dilute our high sulfur diesel to meet federal ultra low sulfur diesel requirements and syngas can also be obtained from gasification of trash and dried sewage as is done with our current plasma incineration plants. However the panel would have to be very large or you'll be waiting a long time for your fuel.
Gasoline and diesel are just energy stored chemically as are batteries, you don't have to be electric to run off solar power, you don't even have to change a single vehicle.
How To Charge A Battery With A Higher Rated Solar Panel?
I Have A Small 6 Volt Battery And Two Small Solar Panels. Their Series Output (The Panels) Is 12.5 Volts (0.8 Watts) So It Drives A Current Of 64 -74 Ma. I Would Like To Charge The Battery With The Solar Panels, But Have Absolutely No Idea How. I Connected It To The Batteries And The Voltage Dropped To Around 6.55 Volts And Climbed Rapidly (About 0.1 Volts Per Minute). Did It Mean That Current Raised? I Need Your Help, Please. Thanks
Solar cells have a high internal resistance, so that will act as a current limiter when charging.
But you don't mention the size or rating of the battery. 70 mA may be fine, or it may overload the battery.
get the max charge rate of the battery, and then connect them as you had, and measure the current. It should not exceed the max allowed. An easy way to measure the current is to connect a 1 ohm resistor (or perhaps 10 ohms) in series and measure the voltage across it.
The numbers you saw looked about right. The number climbing is because the battery is charging. Or because it is overloaded. Check the battery specs before you try again.
If the current is too high, you will have to add resistance to keep it within spec. Or get a charge controller with the right numbers for the battery and panels.

There are a few ways we get energy from the sun. the most well known is though solar panels that turn the suns raise into energy and store it in battery's. Although there is also Solar Thermal that uses mirrors to heat water that then produces steam and turns turbines and makes power (this is general more practical due to the shortage of silicon to make solar panels.)
