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.

Lots of homeowners pick to finance their solar panels with among the "pay-as-you-go" financing choices. This indicates that a third-party business-- the solar service provider-- owns the solar system and looks after setup, upkeep, monitoring and repair works. You just pay the solar provider for electrical power-- less than you would've paid the utility company.
As of June 2013, 75% of all American houses have access to pay-as-you-go solar.
#10. Solar is a Secure Financial investment
The energy companies are notorious for their changing and unreliable electricity prices. There is clearly an upward trend.
With photovoltaic panels and simple math, we can compute just how much electrical power will be created, and most notably, at what cost, for at least the next Twenty Years (repaired energy expenses).

Frequently Asked Questions
What Is The Cost And Benefit Of Using Solar Panels As An Energy Source For My Home?
Specifically, How Much Does It Cost To Purchase, Install, And Maintain A Solar Panel? How Much Of My Energy Can I Tap Out Of It?
I Live In Phoenix, Arizona. It Supposedly Rains Four Days A Year Here.
I'm in the middle of putting in solar/wind to offset the power needs of a 75 unit condo in St Thomas.
Cut to the chase. Solar systems, with batteries to store power for use at night and inverters to change battery power to 120v cost about $7 a watt installed
in Phoenix you'll get about 30 watts a square foot about 10 hours a day
a 1000W panel, at $7,000 installed will run 10 100 watt light bulbs or (maybe)) an energy efficient refrigerator.

Why Aren'T Solar Panels Being Advertised Or Promoted?
It is expensive, but with new technology the prices should be coming down. It is up to grass roots to promote solar panels, and really make them main stream. I see many buildings in Florida with "wasted" roof space for solar panels. I think that big businesses whose power bills soar into the thousands a month, should be required to install them to off set their power usage over 10 years it would pay for the installation of the panels with the reduced power bills that they would have. They are being short sighted to say that it is to expensive.
Why Is Solar Power So Important For The Success Of The International Space Station?
Looking For Opinions And/Or Facts Related To This For A Project.
For electric power. Just as it is so important for the success of our nation - and the rest of the planet, the same reason. Our civilization would collapse without electric power.
Solar power is easily available for the space station, no clouds - ever - to block the sun's 'free' energy. And, many nations on our planet use increasing amounts of solar power - every day. Australia is very big on solar. here in Arizona there are many.. many homes & businesses with solar panels on their rooftops. There is enough solar energy pouring down on our deserts to generate power for the entire planet!
How Do Solar Energy Panels Work?
If The Energy Is Obtained From The Sun, Is It Obtained From The Heat Or Uv Rays Of The Sun? Also, After It Obtains The Energy, How Does It Transfer That Into Usable Energy? Lastly, Is It Immediately Usable Or Is It Stored Until Its Use Is Required?
Solar electric panels (photovoltaic panels) use the light of the sun to produce electricity. They are made out of semiconductor materials like silicon (the same stuff that's in your computer), which is treated so it's positively charged on one side and negatively charged on the other.
When light energy strikes this "solar cell", electrons are knocked loose from the semiconductor material, and at this point they can be captured in the form of an electric current so they can be put to work.
Solar panels produce DC electricity which must be converted to AC by a solar power inverter before it can be used to power household appliances.
If you have a battery bank, the power can be stored for later use.
How Do You Mount A Solar Panel To The Roof Of A Motor Home?
I Just Bought A 100Watt Pv Panel And Was Curious How This Is Done. I Don'T Want It Flying Off The Roof When I'M Going 75Mph Down The Freeway. I Also Don'T Want To Pay $100 For A Few Pieces Of Aluminum. Some Of Those Mount Prices Are Highway Robbery! Am I Supposed To Put A Board Under The Panel For Strength? They Seem Very Fragile. I'D Appreciate Your Help. Thanks For Reading.
Well, you can try to improvise something, and if you fail your $500 solar panel is going to fly off your RV like a kite, potentially decapitating someone behind you and resulting in a criminal negligence lawsuit that might bankrupt you for the rest of your life.
Or you can spend the $100 for the manufacturer-recommended mounting brackets, then have it professionally installed, and rest easy. The $100 is not just for the materials, but the design and testing to ensure it is safe, and the liability in case it does fail.
I'm not saying its impossible to come up with a good DIY mounting system. But if you have to ask, maybe you're better off going with a professional installation?
If not, at least do us the courtesy of posting a link to your rig so we know when to watch out for flying solar panels. :-)
