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 property owner to use the sun to power everyday life: running your a/c unit, washing clothes, watching TV, cooking dinner. All while lowering your carbon footprint, and without burning nonrenewable fuel sources or putting a strain on the electrical grid. And while the environmental benefits of solar power are substantial, lots of property owners find that the benefit, unique features, and cost savings of owning a solar power system are much more alluring.
Top Ten Benefits of Solar Energy
#1 Drastically reduce or perhaps eliminate your electrical bills
Whether you're a house owner, organization, or nonprofit, electrical power expenses can comprise a large part of your month-to-month costs. With a photovoltaic panel system, you'll generate complimentary power for your system's whole 25+ year lifecycle. Even if you don't produce One Hundred Percent of the energy you take in, solar will decrease your utility bills and you'll still save a lot of loan.
#2 Make a great return on your investment
Photovoltaic panels aren't an expenditure-- they're one of the very best ways to invest, with returns rivaling those of more traditional financial investments like stocks and bonds. Thanks to significant electrical power bill savings, the average American homeowner settles their solar panel system in seven to 8 years and sees an ROI of 20 percent or more.
#3 Secure versus increasing energy expenses
One of the most clear cut advantages of solar panels is the ability to hedge energy prices. In the past 10 years, residential electrical power rates have increased by an average of three percent yearly. By investing in a solar energy system now, you can repair your electrical power rate and secure against unpredictable increases in electrical energy expenses. If you're a business or homeowner with ever-changing capital, going solar likewise helps you much better forecast and handle your costs.
#4 Boost your home or business worth
Several research studies have actually discovered that houses equipped with solar energy systems have higher residential or commercial property worths and offer more quickly than non-solar houses. 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, need for homes equipped with photovoltaic panel systems will continue to grow.
#5 Boost U.S. energy independence
The sun is a near-infinite source of energy and an essential part of achieving energy independence in the United States. By increasing our capability to produce electrical power from the sun, we can likewise insulate our nation from price changes in international energy markets.
#6 Develop jobs and help your local economy
Inning accordance with The Solar Structure, the solar market included tasks at a rate almost 12 times faster than the total U.S. economy in 2015, representing 1.2 percent of all jobs in the country. This development is anticipated to continue. Since solar-related jobs have the tendency to be higher paying and can not be outsourced, they are a significant contributor to the U.S. economy.
#7 Safeguard the environment
Solar is a fantastic method to lower your carbon footprint. Buildings are accountable for 38 percent of all carbon emissions in the U.S., and going solar can significantly decrease that number. A typical residential photovoltaic panel system will get rid of 3 to four lots of carbon emissions each year-- the equivalent of planting over 100 trees each year.
#8 Demonstrate your dedication to sustainability
Sustainability and corporate social duty are necessary elements of an organization's culture and worths. They also produce bottom line results. Progressively, consumers and communities are acknowledging and rewarding businesses that decide to run responsibly. Businesses are discovering that "green" credentials are an effective motorist of consumer acquiring decisions, developing goodwill and improving service outcomes.
#9 Start Conserving from Day 1
Solar purchase power arrangements (PPAs) and solar leasing has actually made it possible for house owners to go solar for little or no loan down.
Lots of homeowners opt to finance their solar panels with one of the "pay-as-you-go" funding alternatives. This means that a third-party business-- the solar service provider-- owns the solar system and takes care of setup, maintenance, monitoring and repairs. You simply pay the solar service provider for electrical power-- 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.
#10. Solar is a Secure Investment
The utility business are well-known for their fluctuating and unreliable electrical energy prices. There is plainly an upward pattern.
With solar panels and basic mathematics, we can compute just how much electricity will be generated, and most significantly, at exactly what cost, for at least the next Twenty Years (fixed energy expenses).

Frequently Asked Questions
Why Do Train Cars Have Solar Panels?
I Was Riding Amtrack The Other Day, And We Passed A Long Train Of Hopper Cars Withe Some Kind Of Ore. In Each End Of Each Car Was A Small Solar Panel. What Would These Be Used For?
The solar panel is for charging a battery.The cars are hopper cars that can be dumped by a remote signal.
ghost train? LMAO! yeah right

Since Solar Panels Are Becoming Popular. Where Can I Get The Training To Install, Maintain, And Repair Them?
I Am A Journeyman Electrician But No One Here Seems To Know About This.
If you're already a journeyman, I think you're 90% there. There is an expanded federal tax credit for photovoltaic panels coming on line next year, so solar installation companies may be getting a boost in business, at least in areas where the people are not hurting from the economy. And when the economy improves, it only gets better.
Photovoltaic panels rarely need maintenance or repair. If something goes wrong, it's likely to be simple and catastrophic, such as lightning hit it, or a bullet, or a falling tree.
As for installation, a number of panels are wired in series (it's all plug and play, with the new MC-3 connectors), and then the wires go into a junction box. From there, it's all stuff you already know, wire gauge appropriate for the current, insulation rating for the temperature, conduit fill factors, compliance with the NEC, etc., all the way down to the inverter and service panel. It's not that different from adding a new circuit to somebody's house.
Your best move may be to work for a solar installation company for a while. They can use your skills with the hookup, and you can learn how they architect a system based on the customer's energy use, and how they do the physical installation.
I Have A Question About Solar Panels?
So During The Day, Electricity Is On, Everything Is On And Working Fine. But At Night Where There Is No Sunlight Does All The Electricity Shut Down For The Night? So There Is No Light On For Me During The Night, Or I Can'T Watch Tv At Night? Is It Also True That With Solar Panels, Your Bills Are Less Expensive. Can Someone Please Tell Me These Things
>But at night where there is no sunlight does all the electricity shut down for the night?
Electrical production shuts down, but most solar electric systems have some way of storing power.
There are two main types of storage:
1. Grid tie. Basically this uses the power grid as a "virtual" battery. You produce extra power during sunlight hours to "sell" to the grid (other people use it) and you buy power from the grid when the sun doesn't shine.
This is usually the most economical system, but whether you save money depends on a lot of things like: cost of installation, location, government subsidies & how much you get for the electricity you sell & buy.
In other words, the details matter. Mostly location, which determines how much sunlight you get, electric rates, and subsidies.
2. Batteries. Usually a large bank of deep cycle lead acid batteries. Usually only used in "off-grid" systems and the cost of electricity is usually not competitive with grid electricity.
Were Solar Panels Made By Copying How Plants Collect Sunlight?
In Nature, Green Leaves Collect Light And Produce Energy. Is This What They Copied To Make Solar Panels? If Not How Hard Would It Be To Make Artificial Leaves That Would Power Our Homes?
Solar panels were not made to copy leaves. Leaves have molecules that become excited when they are hit by light. They store this energy in ADP molecules and ATP molecules. This works great for biological processes, but until we learn how to use Adenosine Di/Triphosphate to transport energy, we are better off sticking with our solar panels. They produce electricity, which we know how to use.
