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 utilize the sun to power everyday life: running your a/c unit, washing clothes, seeing TV, cooking dinner. All while reducing your carbon footprint, and without burning nonrenewable fuel sources or putting a stress on the electrical grid. And while the ecological benefits of solar power are considerable, many property owners find that the convenience, unique functions, and expense savings of owning a solar power system are much more enticing.
Top Ten Advantages of Solar Energy
#1 Dramatically minimize or even eliminate your electric costs
Whether you're a property owner, service, or nonprofit, electrical power expenses can make up a big part of your monthly expenditures. With a photovoltaic panel system, you'll generate totally free power for your system's entire 25+ year lifecycle. Even if you do not produce One Hundred Percent of the energy you consume, solar will minimize your utility costs and you'll still save a great deal of loan.
#2 Make a terrific return on your investment
Solar panels aren't a cost-- they're one of the best ways to invest, with returns equaling those of more traditional investments like stocks and bonds. Thanks to significant electricity bill savings, the typical American homeowner settles their solar panel system in 7 to 8 years and sees an ROI of 20 percent or more.
#3 Safeguard versus increasing energy expenses
One of the most clear cut advantages of photovoltaic panels is the ability to hedge energy rates. In the previous 10 years, residential electrical energy costs have gone up by an average of three percent each year. By purchasing a solar energy system now, you can fix your electrical power rate and safeguard versus unforeseeable boosts in electrical energy costs. If you're an organisation or house owner with fluctuating capital, going solar also helps you better forecast and manage your costs.
#4 Increase your house value
Numerous studies have actually found that homes equipped with solar energy systems have higher home values and offer more rapidly than non-solar homes. Appraisers are increasingly taking solar installations into factor to consider as they value houses at the time of a sale, and as homebuyers end up being more informed about solar, need for residential or commercial properties geared up with solar panel systems will continue to grow.
#5 Increase U.S. energy independence
The sun is a near-infinite source of energy and an essential part of attaining energy self-reliance in the United States. By increasing our capacity to create electrical energy from the sun, we can likewise insulate our nation from price changes in global energy markets.
#6 Create jobs and help your regional economy
Inning accordance with The Solar Structure, the solar industry included jobs at a rate nearly 12 times faster than the general U.S. economy in 2015, representing 1.2 percent of all tasks in the country. This development is expected to continue. Since solar-related jobs have the tendency to be greater paying and can not be outsourced, they are a considerable contributor to the U.S. economy.
#7 Safeguard the environment
Solar is a great way to decrease your carbon footprint. Structures are accountable for 38 percent of all carbon emissions in the United States, and going solar can significantly decrease that number. A common property photovoltaic panel system will remove 3 to four loads of carbon emissions each year-- the equivalent of planting over 100 trees yearly.

Sustainability and business social duty are essential components of a company's culture and values. They likewise produce bottom line outcomes. Increasingly, consumers and communities are recognizing and rewarding companies that decide to operate responsibly. Businesses are finding that "green" qualifications are an effective driver of consumer acquiring decisions, creating goodwill and enhancing business outcomes.
#9 Start Conserving from Day 1
Solar purchase power arrangements (PPAs) and solar leasing has actually made it possible for homeowners to go solar for little or no money down.
Many homeowners opt to finance their solar panels with among the "pay-as-you-go" financing alternatives. This indicates that a third-party company-- the solar provider-- owns the solar system and takes care of installation, upkeep, monitoring and repair works. You just pay the solar company for electricity-- less than you would've paid the energy company.
Since June 2013, 75% of all American houses have access to pay-as-you-go solar.
#10. Solar is a Secure Financial investment
The energy business are notorious for their fluctuating and unreliable electrical power costs. There is clearly an upward trend.
With photovoltaic panels and easy mathematics, we can calculate how much electrical energy will be produced, and most notably, at exactly what rate, for a minimum of the next 20 years (fixed energy costs).

Frequently Asked Questions
Can You Depend On Solar Energy?
Say I Was Living In The Remote Wilderness And Was Growing Vegetables And Using Solar Energy To Power The Lamps During The Winter. Could I Depend On Solar Panels Alone To Work 12-14 Hrs A Day Without Any Hiccups What So Ever For 2-3 Months At A Time?
There's no place on earth that gets 12-14 hours of sun in the winter. The best you could do is about 12 hours, at the equator.
But with enough land and enough solar panels, anything is possible. You could have enough batteries to last through a few days of clouds and rain, or more likely, would learn to live without electricity during dark periods.
Is There A Way To Charge Deep Cycle Batteries With Free Energy Besides Solar?
I Want To Set Up Some Rechargeable Batteries To Allow For Lighting And A Small Refrigerator. I Don'T Want To Use Solar To Charge Them. Is There Another Easy Way To Keep Them Charged With Free Energy?
There is no such thing as free energy. Even human powered devices to produce electricity require calories, and that cost money for the foods. It costs more for the food for human energy to generate the electricity than to plug into the grid.
Some people get mad at me but if you do the math, you will find it costs more to human power than plug into the grid.
Hope this helps
Would It Be A Good Alternative To Generate Solar Energy In Los Angeles? Why Or Why Not?
Depends on what your interpretation of generating solar energy in Los Angeles is. Are we talking rooftop solar on houses and buildings or some kind of large scale solar facility? Encouraging rooftop solar is a good idea. Trying to put a large scale facility isn't, cost of real estate being first and foremost among the reasons why.
What Specific Topic Should I Narrow In On For My Solar Energy Analytical Report For College?
I Chose To Do A Analytical Report On Solar Energy In America For Producing Electricity.(Or Maybe A Certain State Or 2) . At First I Was Going To Compare Solar Energy To Other Sources, Then I Figured That Goes Too Deep And Actually Discredits Solar Energy Almost Since It Acquires Less Than 1 Percent Of Production Of Electricity. My Report Is A 2800 Word Report. I Was Then Thinking About Comparing Solar Technologies From Say 10 Years Ago To Now... Yet When I Do Research It Gets Way To Technically Over My Head To Understand. Please Help Me, Im So Confused And This Is Due In 5 Days. I Keep Changing Topics And Just Need To Narrow In On One Topic And Dedicate To It. Also Sources Have Been Hard To Come By That Are Recent And Not Contradictory To Other Sites. Any Topics And Credible Sites You Can Give Me I Would Be So Appreciative. Thank You So Much.
Comparing solar to other energy sources does not denigrate it because of the % it contributes to the grid. You are confused by contribution vs source. Compare the inputs and outputs of other energy sources to solar. For example coal requires expensive and dangerous mining, shipping (input), burning (extreme pollution - output). So do that for coal, oil etc and you will find that solar is one of the ways to go. Good luck - do the work.
How Can We Store Solar Energy?
If you are willing to wait millions of years you can store it in coal and oil, or if you can't wait that long you could take advantage of it being stored naturally in the wind and the waves.
If you want to store energy from a solar water heater the best means currently available is a large hot water tank, or for a solar cell an electric battery.
