Solar energy is the cleanest and most abundant renewable resource source available, and the United States has some of the richest solar resources worldwide.

Many homeowners decide to finance their solar panels with one of the "pay-as-you-go" financing options. This means that a third-party company-- the solar supplier-- owns the solar system and takes care of setup, upkeep, tracking and repair works. You merely pay the solar supplier for electrical energy-- less than you would've paid the utility company.
Since June 2013, 75% of all American houses have access to pay-as-you-go solar.

Frequently Asked Questions
If I Had A Solar Panel That Was 15&Quot; By 15&Quot; And Had A 500% Efficiency Rating, How Many Watts Would I Get?
Sorry. They're not being honest with you, and you should ask for a 500% refund to see what their response is.
Solar PV panels currently on the market have about a 15 - 20 percent efficiency rating. There are new processes that claim 40 percent efficiency. Just so you understand: 100 percent efficiency is the most possible. To get 500 percent (five tmes the amount of energy supplied by the sun) you would need a miraculous process that multiplies the energy somehow.
A little 15 inch square panel would produce about 16 watts on a sunny day.

How Do You Store Solar Energy?
Recommended Products Please...
You store power in lead acid batteries (heavy duty car batteries). You use a diode with it so when sun goes down the power from batteries doesn't go back to solar cells.
Then you have to run an inverter that switches power from 12V DC (if you use car batteries) to 120V AC to run household appliances. The inverter is the same thing that you can use in your car if you want to plug laptops etc into your car. It uses your car battery for power and has a receptacle in the inverter identical to want is in your house. You can buy inverters about anywhere, Autozone, Harbor Freight tools , Northern Tools, etc
and solar panels:
This can be very expensive for home use energy.
And you need a charge controller, which controlls the charge to your battery ( takes the place of the diode above so use this instead)
Google "homemade solar power" and you'll get lots of info
How Can Eco Friendly Homes Help The Environment?
hungry raccoons and other things can eat the wrappings on the solar panels and stuff.
Are Solar Panels A Good Home Investment?

Do Out Door Solar Lights Work?
L C Them In Peoples' Yards But L Don'T Know How Well It Works. Lf It Gets It'S Power From The Sun, Then How Come There'S Little Batteries In It?
The batteries are rechargeable and the solar panel charges them, which then in turn powers the bulb.
People who think they don't work usually have used them incorrectly. Or bought crappy lights.
The Christmas light example is perfect: Christmas lights or for that matter MOST solar lights have a tool that detects darkness, turning the light on. So, if you use solar Xmas lights and regular Xmas lights, the solar lights will not work well. Or, if you try solar lights and have lots of other lights (such as spotlights, street lights or lamp posts) they won't work well.
We have solar lights and even when it rained for five days straight, our motion detector spots, lamp post and good quality accent lights still worked because the little day light there was (along with stored power) kept them working. Granted, by the fourth and fifth night, they weren't as bright as normal, but they were still on at 4:00 am the last day of rain before the sun came back.
The article below is a good source of why people get the wrong idea about solar lights. If you are interested, they are also have a sale and rumor has it there may be a BIG-**** sale for Memorial Day.
