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 utilize the sun to power everyday life: running your air conditioning unit, cleaning clothes, seeing TELEVISION, cooking dinner. All while reducing your carbon footprint, and without burning nonrenewable fuel sources or putting a pressure on the electrical grid. And while the environmental advantages of solar power are significant, numerous property owners discover that the benefit, unique features, and expense savings of owning a solar power system are much more enticing.
Top 10 Advantages of Solar Energy

Even if you do not produce 100 percent of the energy you take in, solar will minimize your energy bills and you'll still save a lot of cash.
#2 Make a terrific return on your investment
Solar panels aren't a cost-- they're one of the very best ways to invest, with returns matching those of more traditional investments like stocks and bonds. Thanks to significant electrical power bill savings, the typical American property owner pays off their solar panel system in 7 to 8 years and sees an ROI of 20 percent or more.
#3 Protect versus rising energy costs
One of the most clear cut benefits of photovoltaic panels is the capability to hedge energy rates. In the past 10 years, domestic electricity rates have increased by an average of 3 percent yearly. By buying a solar energy system now, you can fix your electrical power rate and safeguard versus unpredictable boosts in electrical energy expenses. If you're a service or house owner with ever-changing capital, going solar likewise helps you much better projection and handle your expenses.

Numerous research studies have actually found that houses equipped with solar energy systems have greater property values and offer more quickly than non-solar houses. Appraisers are significantly taking solar installations 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 geared up with photovoltaic panel systems will continue to grow.
#5 Boost U.S. energy self-reliance
The sun is a near-infinite source of energy and a crucial component of achieving energy self-reliance in the United States. By increasing our capacity to generate electrical power from the sun, we can also insulate our country from rate changes in worldwide energy markets.
#6 Create jobs and help your regional economy
Inning accordance with The Solar Foundation, the solar market added tasks at a rate nearly 12 times faster than the total U.S. economy in 2015, representing 1.2 percent of all tasks in the nation. This development is anticipated to continue. Since solar-related jobs tend to be higher paying and can not be contracted out, they are a significant factor to the U.S. economy.
#7 Protect the environment
Solar is a terrific method to reduce your carbon footprint. Structures are responsible for 38 percent of all carbon emissions in the United States, and going solar can considerably reduce that number. A typical property solar panel system will eliminate three to 4 lots of carbon emissions each year-- the equivalent of planting over 100 trees annually.
#8 Show your commitment to sustainability
Sustainability and corporate social duty are essential components of an organization's culture and worths. They likewise produce bottom line results. Progressively, consumers and neighborhoods are recognizing and rewarding businesses that choose to operate properly. Businesses are finding that "green" credentials are an effective chauffeur of consumer acquiring decisions, producing goodwill and enhancing business results.
#9 Start Conserving from Day 1
Solar purchase power agreements (PPAs) and solar leasing has made it possible for homeowners to go solar for little or no loan down.
Lots of property owners decide to fund their solar panels with among the "pay-as-you-go" financing choices. This indicates that a third-party company-- the solar provider-- owns the solar system and looks after installation, maintenance, monitoring and repairs. You just pay the solar company 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 Financial investment
The utility business are notorious for their fluctuating and undependable electricity prices. There is clearly an upward pattern.
With solar panels and simple math, we can determine how much electrical energy will be generated, and most importantly, at what rate, for a minimum of the next Twenty Years (fixed energy expenses).

Frequently Asked Questions
How Is Solar Energy Used?
I Am Writing An Essay For Science And I Need Help. How Is Solar Energy Used In Radiation, Convection, And Conduction? Also Is It Bad For The Environment? Please Answer. Thanks :)
Solar energy can be used for day lighting, cooking, heating water, disinfection, distillation, making saline water potable and high temperature process heating. It is used in residential, commercial, industrial and remote applications purpose.
Help!!!!Solar Energy Slogan?
I Have A Project In Science Where I Am Representing A Company That Is Selling Solar Energy. I Needy S Catchy Slogan For My Company! Please
Solar - We really can't afford it!
I recently did a study of solar in "The Sunshine State" (Florida) where I live. I took into consideration (1) a 30% rebate from the federal government, (2) state and local sales and property tax exemption.
Even with the government (taxpayers across the country) subsidizing me the solar energy collection system would have to run at peak efficiency for over 25 years with no repairs and no maintenance just to break even compared to projected fossil and nuclear power costs.
The FPL Group is building a CSP plant here in Florida (they already operate 7 of the 9 "working" plants in California). The panels are glass. The collector tubes are glass. Who will pay to replace all this glass after the first hail storm or hurricane?
Solar is not financially viable even in the southwest where solar radiance is twice the rest of the country and humidity is super low. The solar plant FPL will build in Florida is the same design that the bankrupt (1991) company Luz patented in the 1980s.
Current estimates say solar power will be competitive with coal and gas in ten years. In the 1980s the estimate was also 10 years. It's like the sign in the bar that reads "Free beer tomorrow!"
How Solar Energy Is Produced And How It Cover ?
Solar energy is energy that comes from the sun - the sun fuses hydrogen to helium to create that energy.
Life on Earth absorbs that energy.
No idea what you mean by "how it cover" - sunlight shines over the entire Earth.
Are There Any Advantages To Upgrading The Electric Panel For My House?
I Am Having Solar Panels Installed For My 50+ Year Old House. The Site Evaluation People Came By And Thought They Could Use My Existing Electric Panel, But They Are Not Completely Sure. I Haven'T Had Many Problems With It. When I Had A Pool Heater Installed, The People Made A Separate Circuit Breaker Near The Heater Rather Than The Electric Panel. But Otherwise, It Hasn'T Been An Issue.
So My Question Is Whether I Should Take This Opportunity To Upgrade The Electric Panel In Case Of Future Need, Or Wait Till It No Longer Works, And Upgrade Then. I Am Not An Electrician, So I Don'T Know Why I Would Need To Upgrade The Electric Panel If The Solar Installation Guys Say What I Have Is Old But Is Good Enough For Their Purposes. Thanks.
Hoo boy tough call. A new panel isn't cheap. So if the existing will suffice you might do well to leave it alone. Unless...
Open the cover and look at the label. If it says FP&E, Replace it! FP&E breakers are a known fire hazard. Do an internet search and you'll see what I mean.
Also, if you chose to replace it I strongly suggest 5 estimates. That way you can ignore the lowest as well as the highest. Then pick from the middle based on reputation. Make them break their estimate down by price per part and the labor separate.
Sq D is a very good brand. But you want to specify a copper buss bar, not aluminum or plated.
Where Does The Energy Go?
The United States Economy Is 41% Efficient. Where Does The Other 59% Of The Energy That Is Fed Onto The Economy Go?
I don't think your number there really means anything credible. But any form of energy is largely wasted in its distribution or use due to the laws of physics and limitations in technology.
Generally there are ways to improve efficiency, but they are expensive. For example, most electricity that is generated in a power plant is lost to resistance as it travels along the cables to homes and businesses. The only way to avoid that would be to have power plants on every block, which is unrealistic. Or for everyone to use solar panels, which is extraordinarily expensive. Right now the best solution is centralized power plants, and just accept the losses.
Society tends to work its way to the solution that gives the best combination of affordability and efficiency.
