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 house owners to use the sun to power daily life: running your air conditioning system, cleaning clothing, seeing TV, cooking dinner. All while minimizing your carbon footprint, and without burning fossil fuels or putting a stress on the electrical grid. And while the environmental benefits of solar power are considerable, lots of homeowners discover that the convenience, special features, and cost savings of owning a solar power system are a lot more attractive.
Top Ten Benefits of Solar Energy

With a photovoltaic panel system, you'll generate totally free power for your system's whole 25+ year lifecycle. Even if you do not produce One Hundred Percent of the energy you consume, solar will lower your energy costs and you'll still save a lot of cash.
#2 Earn a fantastic return on your financial investment
Solar panels aren't a cost-- they're one of the very best methods to invest, with returns matching those of more traditional financial investments like stocks and bonds. Thanks to significant electricity costs cost savings, the typical American property owner settles their solar panel system in 7 to eight years and sees an ROI of 20 percent or more.
#3 Secure against rising energy costs
One of the most clear cut advantages of photovoltaic panels is the ability to hedge utility prices. In the previous 10 years, property electrical energy costs have actually gone up by approximately 3 percent each year. By purchasing a solar energy system now, you can repair your electrical power rate and secure versus unforeseeable increases in electrical power expenses. If you're a business or homeowner with fluctuating capital, going solar likewise helps you better forecast and manage your costs.
#4 Increase your home worth
Numerous research studies have actually discovered that houses equipped with solar energy systems have greater residential or commercial property values and offer more quickly than non-solar houses. Appraisers are increasingly 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, demand for homes equipped with solar panel systems will continue to grow.
#5 Boost U.S. energy independence
The sun is a near-infinite source of energy and an essential element of achieving energy independence in the United States. By increasing our capability to create electricity from the sun, we can also insulate our nation from price fluctuations in worldwide energy markets.
#6 Create jobs and help your regional economy
Inning accordance with The Solar Foundation, the solar industry included jobs at a rate almost 12 times faster than the total U.S. economy in 2015, representing 1.2 percent of all tasks in the country. This growth is expected to continue. Due to the fact that solar-related tasks tend to be higher paying and can not be outsourced, they are a substantial factor to the U.S. economy.
#7 Secure the environment
Solar is a fantastic way 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 typical residential photovoltaic panel system will eliminate 3 to 4 lots of carbon emissions each year-- the equivalent of planting over 100 trees annually.
#8 Demonstrate your dedication to sustainability
Sustainability and corporate social obligation are very important elements of a company's culture and values. They likewise produce bottom line outcomes. Significantly, customers and neighborhoods are acknowledging and rewarding services that decide to operate responsibly. Companies are discovering that "green" credentials are an effective chauffeur of customer purchasing decisions, producing goodwill and improving organisation outcomes.
#9 Start Conserving from Day 1
Solar purchase power contracts (PPAs) and solar leasing has made it possible for house owners to go solar for little or no loan down.
Many homeowners opt to fund their solar panels with one of the "pay-as-you-go" funding alternatives. This indicates that a third-party business-- the solar supplier-- owns the planetary system and looks after installation, upkeep, tracking and repair works. You simply pay the solar service provider for electrical energy-- less than you would've paid the utility company.
As of June 2013, 75% of all American homes have access to pay-as-you-go solar.
#10. Solar is a Secure Investment
The energy business are infamous for their varying and undependable electrical power prices. There is plainly an upward trend.
With photovoltaic panels and basic math, we can calculate how much electrical energy will be produced, and most significantly, at what cost, for a minimum of the next 20 years (repaired energy costs).

Frequently Asked Questions
How Do Solar Panels Work?
Im Fourteen And Looking For A Career I Already Know Solar Panels Capture The Sun And Turn It Into Energy But I Would Like To Know More.
A solar panel is a collection of solar cells (photovoltaic cells) connected together and put in an enclosure.
The solar cells work by taking advantage of the photovoltaic effect. The effect is that in a semiconductor P-N junction, when photons of suitable energy strike the junction, an electron and electron-hole pair are generated. This creates a voltage difference between the two sides. When this voltage is applied to a circuit, the electrons are able to flow through, creating usable energy.
What Needs To Be Done In Order To Make Solar Power Affordable And Available?
Solar hot water heating already makes sense in many locations. It seems like every new house in Honolulu has it.
As for solar electric (photovoltaic panels), the technology is expensive for utility-scale generation, but financially viable for individual homes in increasing areas of the country. That's because a utility can have a nuclear or coal-fired boiler, and produce electricty at (say) 2 cents a kWh. For a consumer, though, the utility may charge 20 cents a kWh, on par with what solar electric costs, so the consumer can break even by putting panels on the roof. Unless a consumer is lucky enough to have running water for hydropower, or solid wind, there isn't a cheaper way to make electricity than solar.
The price of solar panels should be coming down as more manufacturers come on line. I think we will see an evolution rather than a revolution in the next few years, just as the price of PC's was initially high, then slowly came down.
Can A Solar Panel Get Energy If There Is A Lot Of Clouds Blocking The Sun?
The efficiency is reduced...that's why you need a heat sink or other storage system to see you through the times when the sun is not out.
You also need to have shutters on your collectors or valves that will shut off the them off otherwise the system can flow backwards and actually lose energy during cloudy days or at night.
In some areas rather then using the collected heat as is its actually more efficient to use it as a tempering or preheating system.
The majority of the energy used to produce (hot water)for example is used to bring the water from cold entry temperature to room temperature say 50-60 percent.
But if you mix your solar heated water into the water to bring it up to room temperature then you only need 40-50 percent to kick it up.
Why Solar Panels Are Expensive?
In Some Countries Where Electric Generation Is Low, They Are Not Available Easily.
Believe it or not, solar panels are so expensive in this country because of government subsides. Without market competition, companies have no obligation to compete with each other on price. If our government would stop paying people to buy solar panels and giving solar panel companies tax breaks, companies would be forced to lower their price and raise their quality in order to get you to buy their product.
This would be true of oil/gas, corn, soy beans and a number of other companies and products as well.
Can Anyone Explain How To Hook Up Solar Panels In Simple Terms?
I Want To Put A 125 Watt Polycrystaline Solar Panel On My Van. Im Not Mechanically Inclined At All. Why Are The Kits So Much More Expensive Then The Panels Alone? Doesnt Seem Right To Charge 4 Times As Much For A Charge Controller And Some Wire.
My Undertanding So Far, Mount Panel On Roof, Connect Charge Controller, Drill Hole To Get Wires Inside, Connect To Battery, Connect Power Inverter To Batterry An I Should Have Power?
If Anyone Knows How Or Knows A Site That Explains This, It Would Be Greatly Appreciated, Thanks.
Just what do you think you are going to accomplish by doing this? The battery in a vehicle doesn't need a solar panel to keep it charged.... and simply hooking a solar panel up to your single battery will not let you power things if you think you are going to start living in your van.
Just what is the purpose of all of this?
