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 home owners to use the sun to power everyday life: running your a/c unit, washing clothes, watching TELEVISION, cooking supper. All while minimizing your carbon footprint, and without burning fossil fuels or putting a strain on the electrical grid. And while the environmental advantages of solar power are significant, numerous home owners find that the benefit, distinct functions, and expense savings of owning a solar power system are even more enticing.
Top 10 Benefits of Solar Energy
#1 Drastically decrease and even eliminate your electric costs
Whether you're a homeowner, service, or nonprofit, electrical energy expenses can comprise a large part of your month-to-month expenses. With a photovoltaic panel system, you'll produce totally free power for your system's entire 25+ year lifecycle. Even if you do not produce One Hundred Percent of the energy you consume, solar will lower your utility bills and you'll still save a great deal of money.
#2 Earn an excellent return on your investment
Photovoltaic panels aren't a cost-- they're one of the very best methods to invest, with returns matching those of more standard investments like stocks and bonds. Thanks to considerable electrical energy costs savings, the average American house owner settles their photovoltaic panel system in 7 to eight years and sees an ROI of 20 percent or more.
#3 Protect against increasing energy expenses
One of the most clear cut benefits of solar panels is the capability to hedge utility prices. In the previous ten years, property electricity costs have actually gone up by an average of 3 percent each year. By buying a solar energy system now, you can repair your electricity rate and safeguard against unforeseeable increases in electrical energy expenses. If you're a service or homeowner with changing cash flow, going solar also assists you much better projection and handle your expenditures.
#4 Increase your home or business value
Numerous research studies have actually discovered that houses geared up with solar energy systems have greater property values and offer more quickly than non-solar houses. 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, need for homes equipped with photovoltaic panel systems will continue to grow.
#5 Boost U.S. energy self-reliance
The sun is a near-infinite source of energy and an essential component of attaining energy independence in the United States. By increasing our capacity to produce electrical energy from the sun, we can also insulate our nation from price variations in worldwide energy markets.
#6 Develop jobs and help your local economy
Inning accordance with The Solar Foundation, the solar market added tasks at a rate nearly 12 times faster than the overall U.S. economy in 2015, representing 1.2 percent of all jobs in the country. 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 contracted out, they are a substantial contributor to the U.S. economy.

#9 Start Saving from Day 1
Solar purchase power agreements (PPAs) and solar leasing has made it possible for house owners to go solar for little or no loan down.
Lots of house owners pick to fund their photovoltaic panels with one of the "pay-as-you-go" funding options. This indicates that a third-party business-- the solar supplier-- owns the solar system and looks after installation, upkeep, monitoring and repair works. You merely pay the solar service provider for electricity-- less than you would've paid the energy company.
Since 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 infamous for their changing and unreliable electrical power rates. There is plainly an upward trend.
With photovoltaic panels and simple mathematics, we can compute just how much electrical energy will be produced, and most significantly, at what cost, for a minimum of the next 20 years (fixed energy expenses).

Frequently Asked Questions
If Your Domestic Pitched Roof Is Overloaded Due To Solar Panels -What Are Signs Of This?
Presumably If The Roof Is Overloaded With Solar Panels And Needs Strenthening Then Before The Snow Arrives Or The High Winds Come There Will Be Some Signs Of This To Look Out For? What Are They In A Domestic Pitched Roof With A Frames With Like A W Support In Them! And Also Ehat Is The Most Likley Result Of A Failure. Will One A Frame Break Will The Whole Roof Fall In Etc.
Whoever installed the panels should have looked into this before installing.
Photovoltaic panels are light, perhaps 3 lbs. per square foot, which is less than the roofing material under them. So if the roof is sagging or the underlying rafters are cracking or something, then the roof was about to go, anyway.
If you're talking about a solar water heater of the type with a large tank on the roof, that's a different matter. The installer should have paid special attention to the roof strength for this sort of thing. At least in my area, a building inspection would have been required.
I Have 12V Batt(26Ah),10Amp Scc(Mppt-Tracer) With Mt-5 Meter,70W Solar Panel 24V?
My Mt-5 Meter Reading Of My Battery Is 100% When It'S Full...And The Mppt Scc (Tracer) Led Indicator Is Blinking Green Means It'S Full.... But During Sunset Around 5:00 Pm The Percentage Of My Battery Drops To 66% And At Around 5:30 Pm It Drops To 57%(Solid Green Led Indicator Of Scc) Without Any Load.... What'S Wrong With My System???? :(
you're charging a 12v battery with a 24v solar panel and you likely have your charge controller set to 24v too(hopefully anyway), that's your problem.......you overcharged and broke the battery. only use identical voltages when working with any electricity. the reading you're getting is from the solar panels and the percentage drop is from lowering light levels and any remaining power storage the broken battery is capable of. to fix it, you just need to get 2 12v batteries and hook them up in series(positive to negative) to make a 24v battery bank able to handle your solar panel's voltage output and hook it up to your system like a big battery, that's about it.
How Do I Solar Power My Camper Site?
I Have Property In A Very Rural Area With No Utilities Close By And Would Like To Know How Many Solar Panels,Batteries, Charge Controler, Anf Power Inverter, Would Be Needed To Make A Stand Alone Power System That Would Run My Entire Camper?
We run a full-size refrigerator, lighting for 500 sq. ft, an entertainment center, a microwave, 2 computers, and a phone signal booster amplifier. We have 800 watts of solar panels, a 60 amp charge controller, 10 deep discharge batteries, and a 2.5 kW inverter. A backup generator runs the table saw- which draws too much power for the inverter- and a 75-amp charger if it's been cloudy for 2 days straight. System has been operating for 3 years, no problems. Will be upgrading to 16 batteries and 1.2 kW of panels this fall so that we can run a freezer and go 4 days without sun before using the generator.
Can I Use Solar With Inverter In Day Time Without Using Battries?
That is called a grid-tied inverter. It converts the DC power from the panels to AC and puts it into the electric panel in your house. You cannot use it standalone without the electric company connected as well. And if the power goes out on the grid, your inverter will turn off as well, even during a sunny day.
What Type Of Electrical Wires Are Used To Install A Solar Panel On The Roof?
I Have A Module Panel Which Is Suppose To Transfer Dc To Ac Electric. Is The Wires Soldered On The Back Of The Panel Or Any Metal On The Sides? What Colors Are The Wires?
What model panel? I seriously doubt that the Panel has a built in inverter. Most inverters are installed in the basement near the main electrical panel.
DC goes to the inverter from the panels.
For Outdoor electrical installation most local electrical codes require conduit (pipe).
Check with your local electrical inspector or ask a local contractor
