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 house owners to use the sun to power everyday life: running your air conditioning system, washing clothes, watching TELEVISION, cooking dinner. All while minimizing your carbon footprint, and without burning fossil fuels or putting a strain on the electrical grid. And while the ecological benefits of solar power are significant, lots of property owners discover that the benefit, distinct functions, and cost savings of owning a solar power system are much more alluring.
Top Ten Advantages of Solar Energy
#1 Drastically lower or perhaps eliminate your electrical costs
Whether you're a homeowner, company, or nonprofit, electricity expenses can comprise a large portion of your regular monthly expenses. With a solar panel system, you'll generate free power for your system's whole 25+ year lifecycle. Even if you don't produce 100 percent of the energy you consume, solar will decrease your utility bills and you'll still conserve a lot of cash.
#2 Earn a great return on your financial investment
Solar panels aren't an expense-- they're one of the very best methods to invest, with returns equaling those of more standard investments like stocks and bonds. Thanks to considerable electrical power costs savings, the typical American house owner pays off their photovoltaic panel system in seven to eight years and sees an ROI of 20 percent or more.
#3 Protect versus rising energy costs
Among the most clear cut advantages of photovoltaic panels is the ability to hedge energy costs. In the previous 10 years, property electrical energy costs have gone up by approximately 3 percent yearly. By buying a solar energy system now, you can fix your electrical energy rate and secure versus unpredictable boosts in electricity costs. If you're a company or property owner with rising and falling capital, going solar also helps you better forecast and handle your expenditures.
#4 Boost your home value
Several research studies have actually discovered that houses equipped with solar energy systems have higher property values and sell faster than non-solar houses. Appraisers are significantly taking solar installations into consideration as they value houses at the time of a sale, and as property buyers become more informed about solar, demand 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 a crucial element of accomplishing energy self-reliance in the United States. By increasing our capability to generate electrical energy from the sun, we can also insulate our country from rate fluctuations in international energy markets.
#6 Develop jobs and assist your local economy
Inning accordance with The Solar Structure, the solar industry included jobs at a rate nearly 12 times faster than the total U.S. economy in 2015, representing 1.2 percent of all jobs in the nation. This growth is expected to continue. Due to the fact that solar-related tasks tend to be higher paying and can not be contracted out, they are a significant factor to the United States economy.
#7 Secure the environment
Solar is an excellent way to minimize your carbon footprint. Structures are accountable for 38 percent of all carbon emissions in the United States, and going solar can considerably decrease that number. A typical residential solar panel system will get rid of three to 4 lots of carbon emissions each year-- the equivalent of planting over 100 trees yearly.
#8 Demonstrate your dedication to sustainability
Sustainability and business social obligation are very important parts of a company's culture and values. They also produce bottom line results. Significantly, consumers and neighborhoods are recognizing and rewarding businesses that opt to operate properly. Companies are finding that "green" credentials are an effective chauffeur of consumer buying choices, developing goodwill and improving organisation 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.
Numerous homeowners pick to fund their photovoltaic panels with among the "pay-as-you-go" funding choices. This implies that a third-party company-- the solar supplier-- owns the planetary system and looks after installation, upkeep, tracking and repairs. You simply pay the solar company for electricity-- 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 Financial investment
The energy business are well-known for their varying and unreliable electrical power prices. There is clearly an upward pattern.
With photovoltaic panels and easy mathematics, we can calculate what does it cost? electrical energy will be created, and most significantly, at exactly what price, for at least the next 20 years (repaired energy costs).

Frequently Asked Questions
What Are Solar Panels?
And Would The Work For Mobile Homes
It's a device that somehow collects energy from the sun, probably through the form of heat, and converts it to electricity to be used.
I'm not sure if you'd be able to use them for mobile homes. I mean, maybe, but they're only like 5% efficient, so to really get good energy, you'd need a ton, and with a mobile home, you probably don't have the room for a ton of panels..
How Large Of A Solar Panel Is Needed To Power A Typical Home Central Air Unit?
I Would Like To Offset My Air Conditioning Bills By Purchasing A Solar Panel Setup. I Guess The Questions That Need Answered Are These:
How Much Power Does A Central Air Unit Use? 220 Volts / 8 Amps Sound About Right?
How Large Of A Solar Array Will I Need To Power This Non-Stop During Peak Daylight/Sunlight Hours?
If your state offers "New Metering" look into installing a grid-tie system. You won't need to rely on batteries storing the energy your panels produce and if you produce more energy than you consume one month the utility company will actually credit your account for that surplus. I would recommend Global Solar Center as a good starting point (http://www.globalsolarcenter.com/). They will provide you with a free solar quote and inform you of all the incentives you'll be eligible for, your estimated annual savings, payback period etc... They'll provide you with all the info you'll need to make a smart decision. Whether or not the system powers your entire central units consumption, at the end of the day you will be saving on your monthly utility bill. Your location will be a major factor as far as feasibility goes but you should definitely start by visiting that site.
How Much Solar Panel Would Be Needed To Power A Large House?
Can Anyone Estimate How Much Solar Panel Would Be Needed For A Fairly Large House And Maybe The Price As Well
There are a lot of factors to consider, like how much sun your area gets, how much energy your home consumes, etc.
I did a rough calculation yesterday that for my home, I would need to cover about one-fifth of my roof area with solar panels to provide most of my home energy needs. I have a 1,200 square foot home which consumes about 3,000 kWh per year of energy, and I live in a pretty sunny area (north-central California).
How Expensive Are Solar Panels?
Impact Of Solar Panels On Resale Value In Pennsylvania.?
We Live In Pa And Are Considering A Couple Of Solar Options -- Either A 3-Panel Hot Water System, Or A Full Solar System. How Would These Impact Our Home'S Resale Value? It'S A 4,000 Sq Ft Home In A 7-Year Old Development.
I'd recommend talking to a real estate agent. It could raise or lower your home's value. It could raise it from an energy saving standpoint. But it could also lower it from an eyesore standpoint. The one housing complex I was in wouldn't even allow solar panels on the houses from an eyesore standpoint. So first I would start off by checking with the housing development, they may have rules that you can't even put them on your house. Then I'd check with a real estate agent. If both say ok, then I'd put them where they are as non-visible as possible. You don't want them on the road side of the house. The road view is the selling view of the house and it is the first thing that people see when they drive up to your house when it is up for sale. First impressions are BIG. In a store, it is the for 0.5 seconds that sell a person on a product. If that carries over on houses, it means that can eliminate your house before they even enter the door.
