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 use the sun to power everyday life: running your a/c, washing clothes, viewing TELEVISION, cooking supper. All while decreasing your carbon footprint, and without burning fossil fuels or putting a stress on the electrical grid. And while the environmental advantages of solar power are substantial, numerous residents find that the convenience, distinct features, and cost savings of owning a solar power system are even more enticing.
Top Ten Benefits of Solar Energy

Solar purchase power agreements (PPAs) and solar leasing has made it possible for house owners to go solar for little or no cash down.
Numerous house owners choose to fund their photovoltaic panels with one of the "pay-as-you-go" financing choices. This means that a third-party business-- the solar provider-- owns the planetary system and takes care of installation, maintenance, monitoring 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 houses have access to pay-as-you-go solar.
#10. Solar is a Secure Financial investment
The utility companies are well-known for their varying and undependable electrical energy prices. There is plainly an upward trend.

Frequently Asked Questions
Solar Panels To Power My Entire House?
I'M Wondering What Kind Of System I Would Need To Power My Entire House, Indefinitely, Im Quite Wealthy So Price Is No Matter. I Use A Fair Amount Of Power, Tv'S Computers Etc. I The Main Power Waster Is Simply Lights And My Home Entertainment System. (56&Quot; Lcd Tv, Large Surround Sound Speakers,Bluray Player Xbox Etc). I Live In A Pretty Sunny Area Of Australia.
But Yeah Im Wondering What Id In Terms Of A Solar System To Power My Entire House, Night And Day. Any Help Appreciated
Many people think of solar as free, it's not. You have to understand the time value of money to realize there is a distinct cost and an investment in solar should be made with a proper Internal Rate of Return and or Net Present Value calculation. With an understanding of economic risk, you will see that it maximizes your risks by placing the majority of the investment up front. As of 2007, the effective price of solar photovoltaic power was 38 cents per kwh while the cost to utilities of coal power was 0.6 cents per kwh ( consumers typically pay 12 cents per kwh ). You won't remain wealthy for long given the lack of understanding of economics you've exhibited here. Thank you for donating your wealth to the economy through consumerism while pursuing future poverty for yourself.
What Do I Need To Use A 12V Solar Panel To Charge A 6V Lead Acid Battery As I Cant Find A 12V To 6V Regulator?
The Battery Is 9Ah And The Solar Panel Is 20W
despite the statements to the contrary, using a solar panel to charge a battery is not rocket science. first lets look at you panel. panels normally have a spec for open circuit voltage (probably 20 volts for yours) operating power (14.4 volts at 1.4 amps is usual for 20 watt panel) and short circuit current (probably 2 amps in your case).
if this panel is connected to a 12 volt battery, it will develop 20 watts of charge current in full sun. if this panel is connected to a 6 volt battery, it will work closer to the short circuit current or about 1.8 amps. doing the math this is a 7.2v x 1,8= 13 watt charger for 6 volt batteries. while it is less efficient than when working at 12 volts, it will still work pretty good and no regulator is needed if you remember to disconnect the panel after 5 hours of full sun. if you want to "walk away" and have it run automatically, then you will need to find a 6 volt charge controller.
What If All Of The Electricity And Gases Stop? And Everyone Hunts For Food And Builds Houses With Their Hands? And It'S Like We Live In A Medevil Age? Then We Wouldn'T Be Using Gases And **** Tht Poloutes.
Oh, wow, Al Gore and several other thousand democrats would cheer for this question right about now. "Global warming is ruining us, coastlines will be flooded and we will all die! Let's start driving hybrids and using solar panels and we will all be safe!"
Global warming is one of the dumbest, stupidest, and ridiculous theories out there. Oh no, the temperature is raising. I'm sure our climate has never gone through changes in temperature before, this must be the first time..........NOT!
It's stupid to assume that just because the temperatures have gone up a bit that the Earth is going into a "global warming." Our climate has gone through changes before, it's stupid and ignorant to assume that it is the issue now. And the do you know how much the temperature has raised (According to the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change)? .6 degrees Celsius OVER THE LAST CENTURY. That is so significant, isn't it? I don't think so either.
And this slight SLIGHT raise in temp isn't our fault at all. Half of the global warming of the last century has happened between 1900 and 1945. If it was our fault, it would have happened more recently, seeing as we have been burning more fuel more recently.
So don't buy into the crap about how global warming will wreck us, it's all a bunch of stupid political garbage.
Why Don'T More Businesses And Non-Profit Organizations Use Solar Panels?
I Was Watching Extreme Makeover Home Edition And They Installed Solar Panels In One Home And Said It Would Reduce Their Energy Bill To Only 7$ A Month.
I Know There Must Be Some Businesses Using Them, But None That I Know Of In My Area (Eastern Nc). So Why Don'T More Use Them? They Would Get A Huge Tax Deduction As Well As Save On Electricity Bills. Is It Just Not Profitable Enough? I Mean Does It Just Cost To Much To Buy And Install To Really Think About The Long Term Benefits Or What?
It doesn't have to be solar power but wind power could be used as well. I've seen where by using these alternative sources of energy,you're adding to the grid instead of taking from it. And the utility company will be sending YOU a check every month instead of you paying them. Some solay panels start at about $9500.00 and come with interest free financing.
Check and see if they have free literature on homes and businesses getting tax credits for using alternative energy. It may seem like a lot but I still remember me and my dad going to buy a satellite dish when they first came out. We paid almost $1500.00 with interest,and financing,and insurance.
Now you can get a satellite dish for less than $50.00. It just takes time for the idea to catch on before the price comes down.
How Can I Set Up A Solar Panel Just To Power A Couple Of Light Globes In My Home?
Does Anyone Know Of A Good Website That Can Show Me How To Rig Up A Solar Panel, Battery And Inverter To Power A Few Energy Saver Light Globes (Say 10-15 Watt Each), In My House? Thanks
Depending on your knowledge you may buy a kit and observe the parameters.
You will need about 25 square inch per watt
You may need a battery to store the energy
You will have to calculate the size based on your requirements target.
You have to engineer the whole thing; it is fun and very educative.
Autoparts and camping stores have small affordable panels.
Electronic stores have the rest.
Or you can buy a small solar lantern take it appart and reverse engineere-it!
Hope this properly answers your question
