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 a/c unit, washing clothes, enjoying TV, cooking dinner. All while minimizing your carbon footprint, and without burning fossil fuels or putting a pressure on the electrical grid. And while the environmental benefits of solar power are significant, many property owners discover that the convenience, distinct features, and expense savings of owning a solar power system are much more attractive.
Top Ten Advantages of Solar Energy
#1 Dramatically minimize or perhaps eliminate your electrical bills
Whether you're a house owner, company, or not-for-profit, electrical energy costs can make up a large portion of your monthly expenditures. With a solar panel system, you'll produce totally free power for your system's whole 25+ year lifecycle. Even if you do not produce 100 percent of the energy you take in, solar will reduce your energy expenses and you'll still conserve a lot of cash.
#2 Make an excellent return on your financial investment
Photovoltaic panels aren't an expense-- they are among the best methods to invest, with returns rivaling those of more conventional investments like stocks and bonds. Thanks to considerable electrical energy expense cost savings, the average American homeowner pays off their photovoltaic panel system in 7 to 8 years and sees an ROI of 20 percent or more.
#3 Protect against rising energy costs
Among the most clear cut benefits of solar panels is the capability to hedge utility prices. In the previous 10 years, domestic electricity rates have actually increased by an average of 3 percent every year. By purchasing a solar energy system now, you can repair your electrical power rate and protect versus unforeseeable boosts in electrical energy expenses. If you're a business or property owner with rising and falling capital, going solar also assists you much better projection and manage your expenses.
#4 Increase your home or business worth
Numerous studies have actually found that homes geared up with solar energy systems have higher property worths and sell faster 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 property buyers become more educated about solar, need for residential or commercial properties equipped with solar panel systems will continue to grow.
#5 Increase U.S. energy self-reliance
The sun is a near-infinite source of energy and an essential element of accomplishing energy independence in the United States. By increasing our capacity to create electrical power from the sun, we can likewise insulate our nation from price changes in worldwide energy markets.
#6 Develop jobs and help your regional economy
Inning accordance with The Solar Foundation, the solar market added jobs 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 growth is expected to continue. Since solar-related jobs tend to be greater paying and can not be outsourced, they are a substantial factor to the U.S. economy.
#7 Protect 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 substantially reduce that number. A normal domestic solar panel system will get rid of 3 to four loads of carbon emissions each year-- the equivalent of planting over 100 trees annually.
#8 Show your dedication to sustainability
Sustainability and business social responsibility are essential elements of an organization's culture and values. They also produce bottom line results. Increasingly, customers and neighborhoods are acknowledging and rewarding services that opt to run responsibly. Services are discovering that "green" credentials are a powerful chauffeur of consumer acquiring choices, developing goodwill and enhancing company results.
#9 Start Conserving from Day 1
Solar purchase power agreements (PPAs) and solar leasing has actually made it possible for property owners to go solar for little or no cash down.
Numerous house owners opt to fund their solar panels with among the "pay-as-you-go" funding alternatives. This suggests that a third-party company-- the solar provider-- owns the solar system and takes care of installation, upkeep, tracking and repair works. You just pay the solar provider for electrical power-- less than you would've paid the utility business.
Since June 2013, 75% of all American houses have access to pay-as-you-go solar.
#10. Solar is a Secure Investment
The energy business are notorious for their changing and unreliable electrical energy costs. There is clearly an upward trend.
With solar panels and easy math, we can compute how much electrical power will be created, and most significantly, at exactly what price, for a minimum of the next Twenty Years (fixed energy expenses).

Frequently Asked Questions
Solar Panels To Power My Entire House?
I'M Wondering What Kind Of System I Would Need To Power My Entire House, Indefinitely, Im Quite Wealthy So Price Is No Matter. I Use A Fair Amount Of Power, Tv'S Computers Etc. I The Main Power Waster Is Simply Lights And My Home Entertainment System. (56&Quot; Lcd Tv, Large Surround Sound Speakers,Bluray Player Xbox Etc). I Live In A Pretty Sunny Area Of Australia.
But Yeah Im Wondering What Id In Terms Of A Solar System To Power My Entire House, Night And Day. Any Help Appreciated
Many people think of solar as free, it's not. You have to understand the time value of money to realize there is a distinct cost and an investment in solar should be made with a proper Internal Rate of Return and or Net Present Value calculation. With an understanding of economic risk, you will see that it maximizes your risks by placing the majority of the investment up front. As of 2007, the effective price of solar photovoltaic power was 38 cents per kwh while the cost to utilities of coal power was 0.6 cents per kwh ( consumers typically pay 12 cents per kwh ). You won't remain wealthy for long given the lack of understanding of economics you've exhibited here. Thank you for donating your wealth to the economy through consumerism while pursuing future poverty for yourself.
What Do I Need To Use A 12V Solar Panel To Charge A 6V Lead Acid Battery As I Cant Find A 12V To 6V Regulator?
The Battery Is 9Ah And The Solar Panel Is 20W
despite the statements to the contrary, using a solar panel to charge a battery is not rocket science. first lets look at you panel. panels normally have a spec for open circuit voltage (probably 20 volts for yours) operating power (14.4 volts at 1.4 amps is usual for 20 watt panel) and short circuit current (probably 2 amps in your case).
if this panel is connected to a 12 volt battery, it will develop 20 watts of charge current in full sun. if this panel is connected to a 6 volt battery, it will work closer to the short circuit current or about 1.8 amps. doing the math this is a 7.2v x 1,8= 13 watt charger for 6 volt batteries. while it is less efficient than when working at 12 volts, it will still work pretty good and no regulator is needed if you remember to disconnect the panel after 5 hours of full sun. if you want to "walk away" and have it run automatically, then you will need to find a 6 volt charge controller.
What If All Of The Electricity And Gases Stop? And Everyone Hunts For Food And Builds Houses With Their Hands? And It'S Like We Live In A Medevil Age? Then We Wouldn'T Be Using Gases And **** Tht Poloutes.
Oh, wow, Al Gore and several other thousand democrats would cheer for this question right about now. "Global warming is ruining us, coastlines will be flooded and we will all die! Let's start driving hybrids and using solar panels and we will all be safe!"
Global warming is one of the dumbest, stupidest, and ridiculous theories out there. Oh no, the temperature is raising. I'm sure our climate has never gone through changes in temperature before, this must be the first time..........NOT!
It's stupid to assume that just because the temperatures have gone up a bit that the Earth is going into a "global warming." Our climate has gone through changes before, it's stupid and ignorant to assume that it is the issue now. And the do you know how much the temperature has raised (According to the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change)? .6 degrees Celsius OVER THE LAST CENTURY. That is so significant, isn't it? I don't think so either.
And this slight SLIGHT raise in temp isn't our fault at all. Half of the global warming of the last century has happened between 1900 and 1945. If it was our fault, it would have happened more recently, seeing as we have been burning more fuel more recently.
So don't buy into the crap about how global warming will wreck us, it's all a bunch of stupid political garbage.
Why Don'T More Businesses And Non-Profit Organizations Use Solar Panels?
I Was Watching Extreme Makeover Home Edition And They Installed Solar Panels In One Home And Said It Would Reduce Their Energy Bill To Only 7$ A Month.
I Know There Must Be Some Businesses Using Them, But None That I Know Of In My Area (Eastern Nc). So Why Don'T More Use Them? They Would Get A Huge Tax Deduction As Well As Save On Electricity Bills. Is It Just Not Profitable Enough? I Mean Does It Just Cost To Much To Buy And Install To Really Think About The Long Term Benefits Or What?
It doesn't have to be solar power but wind power could be used as well. I've seen where by using these alternative sources of energy,you're adding to the grid instead of taking from it. And the utility company will be sending YOU a check every month instead of you paying them. Some solay panels start at about $9500.00 and come with interest free financing.
Check and see if they have free literature on homes and businesses getting tax credits for using alternative energy. It may seem like a lot but I still remember me and my dad going to buy a satellite dish when they first came out. We paid almost $1500.00 with interest,and financing,and insurance.
Now you can get a satellite dish for less than $50.00. It just takes time for the idea to catch on before the price comes down.
How Can I Set Up A Solar Panel Just To Power A Couple Of Light Globes In My Home?
Does Anyone Know Of A Good Website That Can Show Me How To Rig Up A Solar Panel, Battery And Inverter To Power A Few Energy Saver Light Globes (Say 10-15 Watt Each), In My House? Thanks
Depending on your knowledge you may buy a kit and observe the parameters.
You will need about 25 square inch per watt
You may need a battery to store the energy
You will have to calculate the size based on your requirements target.
You have to engineer the whole thing; it is fun and very educative.
Autoparts and camping stores have small affordable panels.
Electronic stores have the rest.
Or you can buy a small solar lantern take it appart and reverse engineere-it!
Hope this properly answers your question
