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 clothes, enjoying TV, cooking dinner. All while lowering 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, numerous homeowners find that the benefit, distinct functions, and cost savings of owning a solar power system are much more attractive.
Top Ten Benefits of Solar Energy
#1 Considerably minimize and even eliminate your electrical bills
Whether you're a house owner, company, or not-for-profit, electricity expenses can comprise a large portion of your regular monthly expenditures. With a photovoltaic panel system, you'll produce free power for your system's whole 25+ year lifecycle. Even if you do not produce 100 percent of the energy you consume, solar will decrease your energy bills and you'll still conserve a great deal of cash.
#2 Make a fantastic return on your investment
Photovoltaic panels aren't a cost-- they are among the very best methods to invest, with returns rivaling those of more standard investments like stocks and bonds. Thanks to significant electricity expense cost savings, the typical American property owner settles their photovoltaic panel system in seven to 8 years and sees an ROI of 20 percent or more.
#3 Secure versus increasing energy costs
Among the most clear cut advantages of photovoltaic panels is the capability to hedge energy prices. In the previous 10 years, property electrical energy costs have actually increased by an average of three percent annually. By purchasing a solar energy system now, you can fix your electrical power rate and secure versus unpredictable increases in electrical power costs. If you're an organisation or house owner with changing capital, going solar also assists you much better projection and manage your costs.
#4 Increase your home or business worth
Several studies have actually found that homes geared up with solar energy systems have greater residential or commercial property worths and offer faster than non-solar homes. Appraisers are significantly taking solar setups into factor to consider as they value houses at the time of a sale, and as homebuyers end up being more educated about solar, need for homes geared up with solar panel systems will continue to grow.
#5 Increase U.S. energy self-reliance
The sun is a near-infinite source of energy and an essential element of achieving energy independence in the United States. By increasing our capacity to generate electrical energy from the sun, we can likewise insulate our nation from price variations in global energy markets.
#6 Create jobs and help your local economy
According to The Solar Structure, the solar market included tasks at a rate nearly 12 times faster than the general U.S. economy in 2015, representing 1.2 percent of all tasks in the country. This development is anticipated to continue. Due to the fact that solar-related jobs have the tendency to be higher paying and can not be contracted out, they are a significant factor to the U.S. economy.
#7 Secure the environment
Solar is a great method to minimize your carbon footprint. Structures are accountable for 38 percent of all carbon emissions in the United States, and going solar can significantly decrease that number. A normal property solar panel system will eliminate three to 4 tons of carbon emissions each year-- the equivalent of planting over 100 trees annually.
#8 Show your dedication to sustainability
Sustainability and business social obligation are essential components of a company's culture and values. They also produce bottom line results. Significantly, consumers and communities are recognizing and rewarding services that opt to operate responsibly. Businesses are finding that "green" credentials are an effective chauffeur of consumer getting decisions, producing goodwill and improving company results.
#9 Start Saving from Day 1
Solar purchase power arrangements (PPAs) and solar leasing has actually 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" funding alternatives. This suggests that a third-party company-- the solar supplier-- owns the solar system and takes care of setup, upkeep, tracking and repair works. You just pay the solar supplier for electrical energy-- 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 Investment
The energy business are notorious for their varying and undependable electrical power rates. There is clearly an upward trend.
With photovoltaic panels and easy mathematics, we can calculate how much electrical energy will be created, and most notably, at exactly what rate, for at least the next 20 years (repaired energy expenses).

Frequently Asked Questions
Solar Set Up Help ~~?
I Found This Solar Panel And I Am Planning To Set Up A System Using It.
Lets Say That I Don'T Want To Use Batteries, But The Grid Instead For Backups And I Wanna Convert The Power Produced From The Solar Panels Into 120V Ac. What Kind Of Inverters Should I Get And How Many Would I Need If My System Would Roughly Be Made Up Of 10 Pieces Of Solar Panels? How I Do Choose Which Inverter To Buy? Should I Buy Based On The Voltage Rating? Should I Check The Maximum Voltage Output Of My Solar Panel?
It is crucial to set up an inverter to your solar panels right to enjoy maximum output from your solar panels. The inverter always have to be fitted closest to the panel to prevent DC energy leak. Different inverters can perform in different way in different part of the country. That depends on how many sun day and what is your maximum temperature in that area.
To find the right inverter or your Solar Panels you need to run set of test and do some have mathematics. Only then based on output of your result you will now which panels is best for your system. To find some examples of Solar Panels and view best inverters go to:
top 10 solar panels / best inverters
Number of panels will also affect the choice for the inverter. The angle of your roof and direction with which you facing the sun its also crucial.
Why Are Solar Panels So Expensive?
With No Moving Parts, No Fuel Piping And So On...
People, People. People. Come on put on your thinking cap for a second. Do you really think that you are going to get 30 to 40 years of electric to power your whole home and cost you an up front cost of $500?
Where do you get the idea that solar electric panels are expensive? They are free in the end with a large profit if you take the time to do the math and do it right.
Most people don't add in the 6.5% infation rate on fuel that keeps adding up over the years. If you spend 1 dollar this year next year it will cost you 6.5% more for the same amount of electric. So you will pay 6.5 cents more next for every dollar. After thirty years (normal solar electric system life is 30 to 40 years) you are paying over six dollars for every dollar. If you were to pay $1,000 per year you it would be over $6,000 dollars. I did thirty years of math below to show as an example. You as well have to pay sales tax on every dollar you pay on your electric bill. You do not pay taxes on the electric production that you make yourself. Being you pay anywhere from 6 cents per dollar to 15 cents per dollar taxes you will double the savings shown in the list below. After so many years the system is paied off and electric is free. Same if you sell your home. You get your money back for the install and years of free electric. There are other factors as well so you can't just total up the cost of a solar electric system and divide it by 10 years and say that is expensive.
$1,000.00 year one
$6,210.67 Year 30
<--- edit to reply to second statement --->
The only way I know of is to invest the money in the stock market. Most savings accounts only pay 3% intrest. While stocks float and if you don't know what you are doing you will never make as much money as you could save on your electric bill. Then the fact that you have to pay the electric bill out of the money. In the end you rented electric and can never get your money back. You can always sell the solar electric system and get your money back plus a profit. Not many people live in the same house even 20 years so it will sell.
Toss the coin. It is what ever is best for you.
How Do Solar Panels Convert Sunlight Into Electricity?
Sunlight is basically made up of photons that travel at very high speeds. They exist in different wavelengths and manifest themselves as different colors in the spectrum.
When the p-n junctions are exposed to sunlight, they convert photons into electrical energy. Each photon holds a certain amount of energy. As each photon strikes the surface of the solar cells, they knock electrons out of their orbit. For this to happen, photons lose their energy so electrons can have sufficient energy to get out of its orbit.
Electrons are now free to move away from confined areas. Electric fields in the solar cells pull these free electrons in a particular direction. This produces electricity.
The process of converting solar energy (sunlight) to electrical energy is known as the Photovoltaic Effect.
Having more solar cells in a solar panel produces more electricity. If you want higher electric current, you must connect solar cells together in parallel. Similarly, if you need a higher voltage, you can connect them in series.
What Size Of Solar Panel Do I Need To Power A 20-Foot Launch?
I Want To Power An Electric 20-Foot Launch By Solar Panel Only, No Battery Banks.
How Much Solar Panel Wattage Do I Need To Make About 8 Knots?
The general rule is that, if you are going to power directly from a solar panel, the output of the panel should be 10 times the draw of the appliance. A motor that will drive a boat of that size will draw over 125 amps at 12v. So you will need 1250 amps of output .... a solar panel that is about 49" X 44" will output 9 amps of usable power at 12v. So, You will need at least 140 panels ... they cost around $700 each in quantity. Each panel is about 14 sq ft ... so you will need about 1960 sq ft of panels at a cost of nearly $10000. A 20 ft boat with a beam of 8 ft might have a 160 sq ft of canopy available ... Sooooo You will have quite an overhang on your solar array ..
Why Is It Important That Fossil Fuels Not Run Out?
Oil, Natural Gas, And Coal.
Why Is It Important That They Not Run Out?
Why Is It Better To Use The Sun/Solar Panels For Energy Instead?
If they run out, it will take millions of years to get more.
And I know you're saying, "So? When we run out we can start using other energy sources!" Well, it's not that easy. When we run out, people will start scrambling and running to go get solar panels for their houses. There will be greater demand then there is supply, and some people won't even get some solar panels. If people start using and buying them now, there won't be such a scramble to get them if the future and it could save many people a lot of trouble.
