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 resident to use the sun to power daily life: running your air conditioning system, washing clothing, seeing TELEVISION, cooking supper. All while lowering your carbon footprint, and without burning fossil fuels or putting a strain on the electrical grid. And while the environmental benefits of solar power are significant, many property owners discover that the benefit, unique functions, and expense savings of owning a solar power system are a lot more attractive.
Top Ten Benefits of Solar Energy
#1 Dramatically lower or perhaps remove your electric bills
Whether you're a property owner, business, or not-for-profit, electrical energy costs can make up a big portion of your monthly costs. With a solar panel system, you'll create free power for your system's entire 25+ year lifecycle. Even if you don't produce 100 percent of the energy you consume, solar will lower your energy expenses and you'll still conserve a lot of cash.
#2 Earn a great return on your investment
Photovoltaic panels aren't an expense-- they are among the best ways to invest, with returns measuring up to those of more conventional investments like stocks and bonds. Thanks to significant electricity costs cost savings, the typical American homeowner pays off their photovoltaic panel system in 7 to 8 years and sees an ROI of 20 percent or more.
#3 Secure against rising energy expenses
Among the most clear cut benefits of photovoltaic panels is the capability to hedge utility costs. In the previous ten years, property electricity rates have increased by an average of 3 percent annually. By purchasing a solar energy system now, you can fix your electrical energy rate and safeguard against unpredictable boosts in electricity costs. If you're a business or house owner with fluctuating capital, going solar likewise assists you better projection and handle your expenses.
#4 Boost your property value
Multiple research studies have actually found that homes geared up with solar energy systems have higher property values and offer more quickly than non-solar houses. Appraisers are progressively taking solar installations into consideration as they value homes at the time of a sale, and as homebuyers become more informed about solar, need for homes equipped with solar panel systems will continue to grow.
#5 Increase U.S. energy independence
The sun is a near-infinite source of energy and an essential part of achieving energy self-reliance in the United States. By increasing our capability to generate electrical power from the sun, we can likewise insulate our nation from price variations in global energy markets.
#6 Create jobs and assist your local economy
Inning accordance with The Solar Structure, the solar industry included jobs at a rate almost 12 times faster than the general U.S. economy in 2015, representing 1.2 percent of all tasks in the nation. This growth is expected to continue. Since solar-related tasks tend to be higher paying and can not be contracted out, they are a significant contributor to the U.S. economy.
#7 Protect the environment
Solar is a fantastic method to decrease your carbon footprint. Buildings are accountable for 38 percent of all carbon emissions in the United States, and going solar can considerably decrease that number. A typical domestic solar panel system will eliminate 3 to four lots of carbon emissions each year-- the equivalent of planting over 100 trees every year.
#8 Show your dedication to sustainability
Sustainability and business social duty are very important parts of an organization's culture and worths. They likewise produce bottom line outcomes. Increasingly, consumers and communities are acknowledging and rewarding organisations that opt to run properly. Organisations are finding that "green" qualifications are an effective chauffeur of customer buying choices, creating goodwill and improving company outcomes.
#9 Start Conserving from Day 1
Solar purchase power contracts (PPAs) and solar leasing has made it possible for property owners to go solar for little or no loan down.
Lots of property owners decide to finance their photovoltaic panels with among the "pay-as-you-go" financing alternatives. This means that a third-party business-- the solar company-- owns the planetary system and looks after installation, maintenance, monitoring and repairs. You simply pay the solar service provider for electrical energy-- less than you would've paid the energy business.
Since June 2013, 75% of all American homes have access to pay-as-you-go solar.
#10. Solar is a Secure Investment
The utility business are infamous for their changing and unreliable electrical power prices. There is clearly an upward trend.
With solar panels and easy mathematics, we can determine just how much electrical power will be created, and most significantly, at exactly what price, for a minimum of the next 20 years (fixed energy costs).

Frequently Asked Questions
Can A Solar Power Configured With The Following Specification Run E.G Tv, Microwave Etc?.?
If It Does Carry A Lot Of Household Appliances How Many Sunny Days Will It Require To Charge? How Many Hours Will This Home Appliances Work?
1 X 80W Solar Panel
1 X 85Ah Deep Cycle Battery
1 X Inv1000 - 1000Watt Inverter
1 X Waterproof Battery Box
1 X Stspr10 – 12Ah Charge Controller
1 X Aluminium Solar Panel Stand
1 X 20M Cable Bundle
1 X Power Rcd Socket
1 X Connectors, Fuses And Terminals
1 X Detailed User Manual
The short answer is yes, with reservations.
Take the worst case you mention, the microwave oven.
Here I assume a 240 Volt supply from the inverter, if 110V the situation is even worse.
I'll also assume the microwave consumes (say) 750 Watts of power.
I also have to assume a 12 Volt battery.
Disregarding losses all through, it goes like this:
Your battery capacity is 85 Ah.
The microwave will need 3.125 Amperes at 240V. for full power.
Thus the battery will need to supply 20 x 3.125 or 62.5 Amperes.
Thus the battery, without further charging, would run the microwave for 1.36 Hours only.
Your solar cell supplies 80W., and if the voltage is 12, the max. current it will supply the battery is 6.6 Amperes. It would take 12 hours (plus) to fully charge the battery (it would/ should never be flattened).
So the reservation is how much charge time is available, and how much you wish to use high- draw appliances.
A careful selection of a TV set could give you plenty of viewing time, however!
Could I Power My Christmas Lights With Solar Without Having Rooftop Solar Panels ?
Sure why not? You just need them to charge some form of battery that will run the lights at night, which means you need to be using low voltage lighting. You just need to factor in the lighting demand and the voltage requirement for the lights and be sure to get the appropriate solar panels and rechargable type batteries to match your needs and place it in a position that gets the optimum amount of sun in the winter (when the lights are going to be used) and using either a weather tight junction or solder and shrink tube the connection from the first stringers to the solar panel (this means cutting off the transformer plug).
Overall,.........its probably going to cost more then to just use electricity by having to purchase the panels and appropriate batteries and any materials needed to convert. If you are about "going green" then I understand.
Are Solar Panels Made Of Different Materials Depending On Area?
Are Solar Panels Made Different If You Live In The North With A Lot Of Snow And Very Little Sunlight Or In The South With High Humidity And Sunlight Throughout The Year?
I think no. materials for the solar panel is same for whole but the solar cell may vary
Help Me With My Solar Panel System?
I Am Trying To Get A List/Price Check On Making A Home Solar Panel System
I Was Hoping For Someone To Look Over What I Have And Add/Remove Things.
Was Looking At This Type Of Solar Panel: X4
Lead Acid Battery: X2
I Have No Idea What Charge Controller I Should Look For.
If You Can Think Of Anything More That Would Be Needed Or If Something Wont Work.
There are many factors used to calculte the energy and the best sized system for not just your needs but also your budget and for payback.
Most importantly is how many maximum KiloWatt hours do you need per day as well as how many *average* KiloWatt hours do you need per day. This can be found on your electric bill. A typical household uses 30,000 KWh per day which translates to a 3KW solar panel system of (12) 250W solar panels with an average of 10 hours of sunlight.
I would recommend grid tied initially and you can go for batteries later. Just have a professional install it or you won't get the tax credits from the State and the Fed.
Also make sure that you don't pay more than $2 per watt for the panels (lowest prices are below $1 per watt for quantity) and no more than $1 per watt for the inverter (lowest prices are below $0.50 per watt).
How Power Is Produced By Solar Panels? What Is The Cost Of A Solar Panel? Can I Really Save Enough Money?
Solar panels convert light energy into electricity via electro-chemical means.
Getting solar panels installed typically costs between $7,000 and $12,000 per kW of capacity. How much money you can save will depend on where you live and how much to pay for electricity.
There is a calculator called PV Watts that can give you a real good estimate of how much you would save on electricity bills here:
just pick the location closest to you (it may not be in the same state) and enter the size of system you want to install (or try a few different ones) and if you put in your $/kWh (from your electric bill) it will even give you the answer in dollars.
If you are in New Jersey or California, there also are some great incentive programs to help lower the installation costs.
Calling a local PV installer is also a good way to get more locally specific info.
