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 utilize the sun to power daily life: running your air conditioner, washing clothing, watching TELEVISION, cooking dinner. All while decreasing your carbon footprint, and without burning fossil fuels or putting a strain on the electrical grid. And while the environmental benefits of solar power are substantial, numerous residents discover that the convenience, distinct features, and expense savings of owning a solar power system are a lot more enticing.
Top 10 Benefits of Solar Energy
#1 Considerably lower and even remove your electric expenses
Whether you're a homeowner, organization, or not-for-profit, electrical energy expenses can make up a large part of your monthly expenditures. With a solar panel system, you'll create free power for your system's entire 25+ year lifecycle. Even if you do not produce One Hundred Percent of the energy you take in, solar will reduce your utility costs and you'll still save a great deal of loan.
#2 Make a terrific return on your financial investment
Photovoltaic panels aren't an expenditure-- they're one of the finest ways to invest, with returns measuring up to those of more standard financial investments like stocks and bonds. Thanks to considerable electricity costs cost savings, the typical American house owner settles their solar panel system in seven to eight years and sees an ROI of 20 percent or more.
#3 Safeguard 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, property electrical power prices have actually gone up by approximately three percent each year. By purchasing a solar energy system now, you can repair your electricity rate and safeguard against unpredictable increases in electricity expenses. If you're a service or homeowner with rising and falling capital, going solar likewise assists you much better projection and handle your expenditures.
#4 Boost your property value
Multiple research studies have actually found that homes geared up with solar energy systems have greater residential or commercial property values and offer more rapidly than non-solar houses. Appraisers are significantly taking solar installations into factor to consider as they value homes at the time of a sale, and as homebuyers become more educated about solar, demand for homes geared up 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 element of achieving energy independence in the United States. By increasing our capability to generate electrical energy from the sun, we can likewise insulate our nation from price changes in international energy markets.
#6 Create jobs and help your regional economy
According to The Solar Foundation, the solar market added tasks at a rate nearly 12 times faster than the overall U.S. economy in 2015, representing 1.2 percent of all jobs in the country. This growth is expected to continue. Since solar-related jobs tend to be greater paying and can not be contracted out, they are a substantial contributor to the United States economy.
#7 Secure the environment
Solar is a great method to lower your carbon footprint. Buildings are responsible for 38 percent of all carbon emissions in the United States, and going solar can considerably reduce that number. A normal domestic photovoltaic panel system will get rid of three to 4 loads of carbon emissions each year-- the equivalent of planting over 100 trees yearly.
#8 Show your commitment to sustainability
Sustainability and business social duty are very important components of an organization's culture and values. They also produce bottom line results. Increasingly, customers and neighborhoods are recognizing and rewarding companies that opt to run responsibly. Organisations are finding that "green" qualifications are an effective motorist of consumer getting choices, creating goodwill and improving organisation outcomes.
#9 Start Saving from Day 1
Solar purchase power agreements (PPAs) and solar leasing has made it possible for property owners to go solar for little or no money down.
Lots of house owners choose to finance their photovoltaic panels with one of the "pay-as-you-go" funding alternatives. This implies that a third-party company-- the solar provider-- owns the solar system and takes care of setup, upkeep, tracking and repairs. You simply pay the solar supplier for electrical power-- less than you would've paid the energy business.
Since 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 fluctuating and undependable electricity costs. There is plainly an upward trend.
With photovoltaic panels and simple mathematics, we can calculate just how much electrical energy will be created, and most importantly, at what cost, for a minimum of 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

Frequently Asked Questions
Solar Parabolic Dish Collector For Heating The Water Almost Every Day. Take A Look?
So, I Know You Can'T Heat Your House To Efficient In Winter With This System, But I'M Pretty Sure You Can Heat Your Water For Bath, Kitchen Or For A Pool. And If You Add This System At A Central Heating System, Or A Heat Generator I'M Pretty Sure You Can Reduce Your Heating Cost. Check Http://Www.Lamp-Bulbs.Com For More Details. What Do You Think? Is It Relevant Or Not?
I know that I built a solar panel system from scratch in North Wales, costing me just £50 in total. Okay, I did use some old plumbing parts such as a water storage tank, kindly donated off a plumber, but for 3/4 of the year, there was ample water for two people to take showers. The great thing was, that although the U.k> sees very little sun, the system worked.
I do think that solar water systems can be adapted to work in conjunction with geothermal water heating, and in doing so, totally eliminate any need for external heat sources for heating water.
On the parabolic dish however, although I have never tried it, I think there are much more efficient ways to heat water, as using a dish, you would only be heating a small amount of water at at time, whereas a tubed panel for instance, heats a greater amount of water than a dish could, and in all likely-hood, to the same or higher temperature too.
If you had the space, and you wanted to use the parabolic method, I would suggest using a parabolic trough instead of a dish, as the amount of water heated could be greatly increased. If you did decide to do this, think about surrounding your pipe which is to contain the water with a vacuum sealed glass tube, as this will increase your heat potential.
You could even make your own troughs, by cutting oil drums in half and lining them with a reflective foil.

Do Solar Panels Shine/Have Luster? Please Help Me. Easy Ten Points!?
Okay So I Want To Know If Solar Panels Shine.
------(My Q'S About Blindness Doesn'T Mean Permanent Omg I Can'T See! Blind But That We Just Can&Quot;T See At The Moment Because Of The Light.)-----------------------------
-Like If/When They Face The Sun Is There A Glare To The People Around?
-If There Is Would The Person Have To Look Directly At It?
-Could It Reflect Off Of Other Objects And Cause Temporary Blindness Or Just Shine Light In Person'S Eyes?
-If There Were Windows And Mirrors Near The Solar Panel Would It Affect A Person'S Sight?
-And If It Did For How Long Would It Hurt Or Take Affect?
-And Is This Physics? Like-Solar Panels And How They Work Is That Physics Or Some Other Category?
Solar panels reflect less sun than a piece of window glass, and people aren't harmed by the sun's reflection off windows.
Also, solar panels tend to be tilted more or less directly toward the sun, so the light that they reflect is back at the sun, not down into the street or yard where people are.
Those huge "power tower" concentrating solar thermal plants have a brilliant light reflected off the boiler. But those are put out in the desert, away from people.
How Much Solar Energy Is Used Worldwide?
I Would Prefer For The Answer To Come From Howstuffworks Or Brainpop. However, If The Answer Can'T Be Found On Those Websites, It Will Be Okay To Use Other Sources.
World Solar Power Topped 100,000 Megawatts in 2012.
That is still less than 1% of all electric power in the world, but look how that graph is trending up. I extrapolated that if it keeps that up we could end up with 100% of electricity being solar in less than 15 years. Of source it won't keep trending up that much, but I can easily see it being 20% of world total in 10 years.
Run A Air Conditioner Off 6V 200 Ahsbatteries?
I Have 5 100 Watt Solar Panels And 6 6V 200 Amp Hr Batteries . I Want To Run A 5 To 8000 Btu Air Conditioner
I presume you have a charge controller. Otherwise, you can't connect the 12v solar panels to charge 6v batteries - overcharging and battery damage will result. But presuming you have addressed that issue, I presume your 8000 BTU AC is a 120vac model. That will require about 7 amps = 840 watts. To get 840 watts out of 6v batteries, you'll have to draw about 140 amps. Since inverters are about 85% efficient, you'll have to plan on 165 amps from the bank of batteries. With 6 batteries, each will provide 28 amps. You might get 6 hrs of AC. A 5000 BTU AC will reduce the power requirements by about 33%.
Most battery solar systems are based upon 12v batteries. You can still go that route by connecting two batteries in series, then connect each of those pairs in parallel with each other. That will reduce the current requirements on the battery bank to about 80 amps. No change in the operational capabilities. You can get by with lighter gauge wire.
Where Can I Find Info On How Much Money The Federal Govt Spent On Using Solar Energy Tech. For Fed. Buildings?
Would Like To Know How Much $ Is Reserved/Set Aside By Fed Govt To Use Solar Energy Tech For Some Federal Buildings - Also How Much Money Is Being Spent By Fed Govt On Using Non-Solar Air Conditioning Technology (Traditional A/C Technology)
That is going to take some digging with google. Using strings like "u.s. government solar energy use" you will turn up links like:
So the information is out there, but it appears there is a not a single compendium site that lists all federal solar energy uses. Therefore, it will be a Project to assemble it.
