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 use the sun to power everyday life: running your air conditioner, washing clothes, viewing TELEVISION, cooking dinner. All while reducing 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 significant, lots of homeowners discover that the benefit, special functions, and cost savings of owning a solar power system are even more attractive.
Top 10 Advantages of Solar Energy
#1 Dramatically decrease or even remove your electric costs
Whether you're a property owner, organization, or not-for-profit, electricity costs can make up a big portion of your regular monthly expenses. With a photovoltaic panel system, you'll produce complimentary power for your system's entire 25+ year lifecycle. Even if you do not produce 100 percent of the energy you take in, solar will lower your utility costs and you'll still save a great deal of loan.
#2 Make a great return on your investment
Solar panels aren't an expenditure-- they are among the very best ways to invest, with returns equaling those of more standard investments like stocks and bonds. Thanks to substantial electricity costs cost savings, the typical American house owner settles their photovoltaic panel system in seven to eight years and sees an ROI of 20 percent or more.
#3 Protect against increasing energy costs
One of the most clear cut benefits of photovoltaic panels is the ability to hedge energy prices. In the past ten years, property electricity costs have increased by an average of three percent annually. By investing in a solar energy system now, you can repair your electrical power rate and secure versus unpredictable increases in electrical energy expenses. If you're a company or property owner with fluctuating money flow, going solar likewise helps you better forecast and manage your expenses.
#4 Boost your home or business value
Multiple studies have actually discovered that houses geared up with solar energy systems have higher property values and offer more rapidly than non-solar homes. Appraisers are progressively 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 properties 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 a crucial part of accomplishing energy self-reliance in the United States. By increasing our capability to create electricity from the sun, we can also insulate our nation from price variations in worldwide energy markets.
#6 Create jobs and assist your local economy
Inning accordance with The Solar Structure, the solar industry included jobs at a rate almost 12 times faster than the overall U.S. economy in 2015, representing 1.2 percent of all tasks in the nation. This development is expected to continue. Due to the fact that solar-related tasks tend to be higher paying and can not be contracted out, they are a considerable factor to the U.S. economy.
#7 Secure the environment
Solar is a great way to decrease your carbon footprint. Buildings are responsible 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 tons of carbon emissions each year-- the equivalent of planting over 100 trees annually.
#8 Demonstrate your dedication to sustainability
Sustainability and business social duty are crucial elements of an organization's culture and worths. They likewise produce bottom line outcomes. Increasingly, customers and neighborhoods are recognizing and rewarding services that decide to run responsibly. Organisations are finding that "green" qualifications are a powerful motorist of consumer buying choices, creating goodwill and enhancing service outcomes.
#9 Start Saving from Day 1
Solar purchase power contracts (PPAs) and solar leasing has actually made it possible for homeowners to go solar for little or no loan down.
Many property owners decide to fund their photovoltaic panels with among the "pay-as-you-go" funding options. This suggests that a third-party company-- the solar service provider-- owns the planetary system and looks after setup, upkeep, tracking and repairs. You merely pay the solar service provider for electricity-- less than you would've paid the utility business.
As of June 2013, 75% of all American homes have access to pay-as-you-go solar.
#10. Solar is a Secure Investment
The utility business are infamous for their changing and unreliable electricity costs. There is clearly an upward pattern.
With solar panels and simple math, we can compute what does it cost? electrical energy will be generated, and most importantly, at exactly what cost, for at least the next 20 years (fixed energy expenses).
What are the various payment options?
We have many flexible purchasing agreements for customers who would like to install a new home solar system. There are three different payment options, making them a viable choice for customers of all budgets. The payment options include Lease, PPA, and Purchase.
- Low, fixed payments each month
- System insurance for 20 years, including maintenance
- Flexible end-of-term options, including system upgrade, lease extension, and free panel removal
Power Purchase Agreement (PPA)
- We own the solar panel system
- $0 down for installation
- Customers only pay for the solar energy that they use
- Customer pays for the system upfront and owns the system

What Materials Do I Need To Build Solar Panels?
I don't remember exactly how this person did it, but I was watching Extreme Makeover: Home Edition one day, and this boy that lived in a Native American reservation actually made solar panels out of soda cans so he could help his family lower the heating bills.. I KNOW it sounds crazy, but it worked for them! I think he said he was going to try to make a patent for it, but I'm sure you can find how to make one on http://www.eHow.com/, and here's a site I found that might help you as well: http://results.letsimproveyourhome.com/index.php?c=2633&ss=building+solar+panels&trk=solar+panels||c
Hope this helps!!! :)
I Want To Conserve Energy, Is There Anyone Out There Who Knows How To Make Solar Panel The Simple Way?
What Are The Key Materials Needed To Create A Solar Panel And The Simple Steps To Assemble It. What Would Be The Desirable Size Of The Panel Enough To Run A Desk Fan Motor?
If you want to feel better about yourself, you can definitely do this kind of project. Keep in mind however that your payback will take a very long time. Solar panels are rather expensive. Let’s assume for a moment that you are running 50 W fan. This means that you need a solar panel with the area of about 700 Square inches. It will set you back about $300 or more. This panel will have to be exposed to full sun light. Solar panel however produces only DC current. You will need one of two things; fan with special motor or DC to AC inverter. Add another $50. 00. If you run the some fan on the grid power you will use 1KWH of energy in 20 hours. Average cost of 1KWH in USA is about 10 -12 cents. You will have to run your fan for over 3000 Hrs. in order to brake even. Keep in mind that you also need wires, some kind of mounting bracket etc. to make you project work.
How Much Solar Power Do I Require?
I Am Thinking About Buying A Solar Panel To Light Up A 1000W Bulb. Now I Find It Hard To Choose Which Solar Panel Should I Go For. I Have Seen Solar Panels Which Are Capable Of Producing 1Kw Energy. Now I Need To Know Whether This 1Kw Solar Panel Can Be Used To Light Up A 1Kw Bulb.
To light up a 1 kw continuously will require a lot of power. That is 1000 watts an hour for 24 hours , which equals 24 kWh's a day of power.
Most solar cells in full sun are about 15% efficient. Of course you have cloudy days and dark periods and short days in winter.
The sun at best puts out about 1000 watts/ m^2, so if you get 15% of this, you get about 150 watts per square meter.
1000 watt light bulb/ 150 watts = about 7 square meters of 15% efficient panels to run thru the day.
To run thru the night and cloudy periods, count on at least 300-400% storage capacity in batteries and charge inverters to give power back.
So about 21-25 square meters of panels would probably be good. Go to a solar manufacturer website to get specifics. With light trackers and concentrators you can do much better.
It is probably better to get DC powered lights rather than AC lights, so you can use the power directly without an AC inverter and the losses it comes with and costs.
When dealing with solar, you go with solar heat for heating water and space, that is the cheapest use of solar. Then you go with DC lighting and battery storage. Only use an inverter for appliances that require AC specifically, like TV's and computers
What Battery Has The Longest Output For Solar Aplications?
I Know That Semi And Forklift Batteries Work Great With Solar Panels, But When Using A 12V. System, Which Of The Hundreds Will Last The Longest Per Charge And Which Has The Best Life Expectancy?
If you are looking for longevity go with a 24 volt forklift battery and cut the bar so you have 2 12 volt batteries and wire them in parallel.
The differences are in the construction of the lead plates, with the fork lift battereis made the most durable. Deep cycle batteries are designed for a life of about 400 charge/discharge cycles to 80 percent capacity. AGM's if you get them new, have a bit longer cycling life, but do not do well with desulphating techniques.
As lead acid batteries go, the capacity is determined by surface area available.
If you are looking for longevity and affordability, go for golf cart batteries as they made a little more durable than Deep cycles.
To learn more about the lead acid battery, there is a book published on it. Worth having for reference even if you only need to read it once.
