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 everyday life: running your ac system, cleaning clothes, seeing TV, cooking supper. All while reducing your carbon footprint, and without burning fossil fuels or putting a pressure on the electrical grid. And while the ecological benefits of solar power are significant, lots of residents discover that the benefit, distinct functions, and cost savings of owning a solar power system are much more alluring.

#3 Secure versus increasing energy expenses
One of the most clear cut benefits of photovoltaic panels is the capability to hedge utility rates. In the previous 10 years, domestic electrical power prices have gone up by approximately 3 percent each year. By purchasing a solar energy system now, you can fix your electrical energy rate and protect against unpredictable increases in electricity costs.

#5 Increase U.S. energy self-reliance

Numerous house owners opt to finance their photovoltaic panels with among the "pay-as-you-go" financing choices. This suggests that a third-party business-- the solar supplier-- owns the planetary system and takes care of installation, maintenance, monitoring and repairs. You simply pay the solar provider for electrical energy-- less than you would've paid the energy company.
As of June 2013, 75% of all American homes have access to pay-as-you-go solar.
#10. Solar is a Secure Investment
The energy companies are well-known for their changing and undependable electricity prices. There is plainly an upward pattern.
With photovoltaic panels and simple math, we can calculate what does it cost? electrical energy will be generated, and most significantly, at what price, for a minimum of the next 20 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.

- 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

Frequently Asked Questions
What Does Solar Energy Have To Do With Economics?
Im Doing A Project For Economics And I Have To Find Out How Economics & Solar Energy Are Tied Together.
One has to consider the economics of using solar energy. If you want to install solar panels on the roof of your home, to produce electricity, you have to figure the costs involved.
Determine the cost of installing the panel and how long it is expected to last. Figure out how much electricity the panel will generate. Subtract that amount from your normal electric usage. Then figure out the savings over the life of the panel to see if the original expense is worth it or not.
If you live in northeastern Arizona and pay top dollar for electricity, it might pay to have solar panels. They have sunshine for 325 days a year.

Which Of The Following Devices Uses A Renewable Source Of Energy?
Which Of The Following Devices Uses A Renewable Source Of Energy, And What'S An Advantage And Disadvantage Of Each?
A. A Fossil-Fuel Power Plant
B .A Windmill
C. A Solar Panel
D. A Hydroelectric Dam
E. All of the above
A. The one everyone hates but is the cheapest and easiest to open and operate. The renewable part takes a long time though.
B. Everybodies dream. But not very efficient and there are those who don't want them cluttering the landscape (like the Kennedy family). Not practical in crowded areas or where wind is at a minimum. High-maintenance, as well.
C. Cool ... as long as the sun shines. Not very handy for "peak" times when everyone comes home from work and start loading up the grid with washing machines and microwaves. Also take a lot of space and there is more usage in major cities than any panels could provide. Very high start-up costs and high-maintenance.
D. Very high start-up costs but the final products just pummps the electrons all day and night. Controversial as they require land be taken from owners and converted to lake. The lakes themselves become good profit-makers but since "imminent domain" was used to seize the area round the new lake the benefits tend to concentrate in the hands of the old money and insiders.
You forgot nuclear energy which the "green" Europeans love to use. Of course, they tend to take their nuclear waste and just dump it in the ocean ... oops, did I say that? Of course, those Greenpeace folks in the Old Country would NEVER allow their people to do such horrible things. Only the filthy Americans would behave that way.
You also forgot the tidal generators that don't work to well or for very long and are only useful near the oceans.
... and geothermal ... which works great in areas with geothermal activity close to the surface.
I Have A Radio That Takes 4.5V Adapter. Why Is A 4.5V Adapter So Hard To Find?
I Have A Self Powered Radio 360 (It Was Made In South Africa) And It Is Primarily A Hand Cranked Radio, But Also Has A Solar Panel That Works With Intense Direct Sunlight And Also Has A Connection For A 4.5V Adapter. It Did Not Come With The 4.5V Adapter.
The Solar Panel Pretty Much Doesn'T Work Anymore. It Has A Rechargeable Lithium Battery That Can Last Up To 15 Hours If You Charge It With The 4.5V Adapter.
I Cannot Find A 4.5V Adapter! I Bought A Used One At A Re-Store In Vermont But It Did Not Fit.
Here Is Link To The Radio Description:
Without seeing the power connector, I would guess that it is a regular "barrel connector". These come in different sizes, so you need to measure the outer diameter of the socket, and then measure the diameter of the inner central pin (which is usually the positive connector) - then it should be relatively straightforward for you to go to Radio Shack (or look on Ebay) and find a suitable adaptor.
I just found plenty on Ebay, using this search string
4.5 volt adapter
likewise I found a solar charger on ebay with several connector options - Item number: 110445775595
PS - here is a link to the website of the inventor of your radio - British innit!
