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 home owners to utilize the sun to power everyday life: running your air conditioning system, washing clothes, enjoying TV, cooking dinner. All while decreasing 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 considerable, many residents discover that the convenience, unique features, and cost savings of owning a solar power system are a lot more attractive.
Top 10 Advantages of Solar Energy
#1 Considerably reduce or perhaps eliminate your electric bills
Whether you're a property owner, business, or not-for-profit, electrical energy expenses can comprise a big part of your month-to-month costs. With a photovoltaic panel system, you'll generate complimentary power for your system's entire 25+ year lifecycle. Even if you do not produce 100 percent of the energy you consume, solar will decrease your energy expenses and you'll still conserve a lot of loan.
#2 Earn an excellent return on your financial investment
Photovoltaic panels aren't an expenditure-- they're one of the very best methods to invest, with returns equaling those of more standard financial investments like stocks and bonds. Thanks to substantial electricity costs savings, the average American house owner settles their solar panel system in 7 to eight years and sees an ROI of 20 percent or more.
#3 Protect against increasing energy expenses
Among the most clear cut benefits of photovoltaic panels is the ability to hedge utility prices. In the past 10 years, residential electrical power rates have actually increased by approximately three percent each year. By investing in a solar energy system now, you can repair your electricity rate and secure versus unforeseeable boosts in electricity costs. If you're an organisation or property owner with rising and falling capital, going solar likewise helps you much better forecast and handle your expenses.
#4 Boost your house worth
Several research studies have found that houses geared up with solar energy systems have greater residential or commercial property values and offer more rapidly than non-solar homes. Appraisers are progressively taking solar installations into consideration as they value houses at the time of a sale, and as property buyers end up being more educated about solar, demand for properties equipped with photovoltaic panel systems will continue to grow.
#5 Increase U.S. energy independence
The sun is a near-infinite source of energy and a key part of accomplishing energy independence in the United States. By increasing our capacity to create electricity from the sun, we can likewise insulate our country from price variations in global 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 jobs in the country. This growth is anticipated to continue. Due to the fact that solar-related tasks tend 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 terrific way to decrease your carbon footprint. Buildings are responsible for 38 percent of all carbon emissions in the United States, and going solar can substantially reduce that number. A normal property photovoltaic panel system will get rid of three to four lots 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 parts of an organization's culture and worths. They also produce bottom line outcomes. Progressively, consumers and communities are acknowledging and rewarding services that select to operate responsibly. Businesses are discovering that "green" credentials are an effective motorist of customer getting decisions, creating goodwill and improving business outcomes.
#9 Start Conserving from Day 1
Solar purchase power arrangements (PPAs) and solar leasing has actually made it possible for property owners to go solar for little or no loan down.
Lots of homeowners opt to fund their photovoltaic panels with among the "pay-as-you-go" financing options. This means that a third-party company-- the solar provider-- owns the planetary system and takes care of installation, maintenance, tracking and repairs. You simply pay the solar service provider for electricity-- less than you would've paid the energy business.
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 utility companies are notorious for their varying and unreliable electrical power costs. There is clearly an upward pattern.
With photovoltaic panels and basic math, we can compute how much electrical power will be produced, and most importantly, at exactly what rate, for a minimum of the next 20 years (fixed energy costs).

Frequently Asked Questions
Why Don't Millionaires Help The Environment More?
I Was Watching "Fabulous Life Of.." On Vh1 And It Was Showing How A Lot Of Famous People Are Putting Big Dollars Into Hybrid Cars, And Solar Panel For Their Homes To Help The Environment. And People Like Angelina Jolie Go To Other Counties To Help Out. Well With Our Energy Crisis In The World And Here In The Us, I Wonder Why Celebs Don't Buy Wind Turbines. Iv Heard People Can Purchase Their Own Wind Turbines To Produce Their Own Electricity And Sometimes The Electric Company's End Up Having To Owe Them Money. If Celebs/Billionaires Helped Out The Country By Supplying Some Of These Energy Efficient Wind Turbines They Could Actually Make Money Off Of It And Help With The Energy Crisis. Sounds Like A Good Idea Huh..?
Why don't you help it? You could turn lights off when you are not in the room, or re-use shopping bags or cut down shower time. Yet you can't be bothered. Millionaires are just like you.
Will A Solar Panel Work Without Sun?
We Are Trying To Charge A Battery For A Boat Using A Solar Panel But It Is Overcast Outside. Will It Work Today Or Do We Need To Wait For Sun?
I have a solar battery charger, It produces some output on even the cloudiest of days. I leave it connected all of the time, and I never have a dead battery. Those things are slow. The main thing is patience. If you try to start the boat, and it doesn't work, you have just killed the battery again. The best thing to do is hook it up today, and start the boat tomorrow.
How Many Liberals And Democrat Would Be Willing To Invest Their Own Money In Green Energy And Solar Panels?
I Invest Funds In Oil And Natural Gas All The Time...
I Want To Know If Liberals Will Now Being Willing To Invest Their Own Money In These Childish, Feel Good/Do Nothing Money Pits Now The The Cat Is Out Of The Bag And Government Loans Will Be Cut Off For The Foreseeable Future?
Are Any Libs Brave Enough To Say So?
Not a single one, and most don't have any money to invest to begin with, and no illegal substance farms are not really investments
Now That Solar Panel Production Has Proved To Be Toxic To The Atmosphere, What Will Replace Them?
Potent Greenhouse Gas More Prevalent
In Atmosphere Than Previously Assumed

This is why they should be manufactured and used in space, not on earth. Nuclear power as a stopgap until space based solar gets on line is the best option of all. Nuclear plants only have waste because Jimmy Carter made a presidential decree stopping reprocessing and recycling of it like all the other nations of the world do. With recycling we have enough material to go 100% nuclear and meet most of out needs for 100,000 years or go mostly space based solar which would cut all the worlds pollution by 99% and last for a couple million years. Point is there are clean, safe practical solutions out there available almost as turn key but the promoters of the AGW hoax do not want that as it would cut into the huge profits they are making from the production, distribution and sales of fossil fuels now.
How Many Solar Panels?
We Are Planing To Move Out Of The Grid. We Need To Operate Constantly 2 Laptops Online - Does Any One Can Tell Us How Much Solar Panels We Shall Need To Make Sure Of That?
A laptop is about 70 to 100 W, and you have two.
You also may need to power a router, and modem.
So, about 150W to 250W contineous should cover it.
To save power when not in use, you can let the display go blank. This will reduce your solar pannel, and battery size, and cost.
You will need batteries, and blocking rectifier to store the energy for use at night, and a 300W to 400W inverter.
Checkout the link below for purchasing solar equipment.
You can only hope to get about 8 to 9 hours of full output from your solar pannels, and 80% efficiency.
The laptops will be on and using about 200W for the 8 hours during the charging period. So your pannels, need to produce that plus 2 times more than this amount, so you can charge the batteries for the evening, at the same time.
So for 24 hour operation, you will need 200W x8hrs for the laptops, plus (16 hours*170W)/8=340W avg.
Total of ~540W for 8 hours.
Assuming you use power saving modes when not in use, you can probably get away with 3x160W --> 520W to 600W pannel.
( Thuja is right, a few cloudy days may knock you offline)
A common low cost ( $40) automotive battery can hold about 40 Amp/hours at 12V. Under load, you may get 35 Amp hours at 10V, which is about 350Watts for one hour.
You need about 180W avg for 16 hours, or ~ 2900Watt Hours.
Which means you would need 9 automotive batteries.
Deep storage batteries cost more, but are more durable.
6*100W pannels, $460*6 ~ $2800
Battery cables, rectifier, lugs, connectors $50
There are probably some other hidden costs.
I was rooting for you, but it appears to be pricey.
Another thing you can do, is to use the new energy efficient RF florescent bulbs for lighting. The color and brightness are excellent, and a 60W bulb only uses about 13W, and they last a lot longer as well.
