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 home owners to utilize the sun to power daily life: running your air conditioning system, cleaning clothing, watching TELEVISION, cooking dinner. All while decreasing your carbon footprint, and without burning nonrenewable fuel sources or putting a stress on the electrical grid. And while the environmental benefits of solar power are substantial, lots of residents find that the benefit, distinct features, and expense savings of owning a solar power system are even more enticing.
Top 10 Benefits of Solar Energy
#1 Significantly reduce and even eliminate your electrical costs
Whether you're a homeowner, organization, or nonprofit, electrical energy costs can make up a large part of your regular monthly expenses. With a photovoltaic panel system, you'll create complimentary power for your system's whole 25+ year lifecycle. Even if you don't produce One Hundred Percent of the energy you take in, solar will minimize your energy bills and you'll still conserve a great deal of cash.
#2 Earn a fantastic return on your investment
Solar panels aren't an expenditure-- they're one of the finest methods to invest, with returns matching those of more conventional investments like stocks and bonds. Thanks to significant electricity expense 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 Secure versus increasing energy costs
Among the most clear cut advantages of solar panels is the capability to hedge utility prices. In the previous 10 years, residential electrical energy costs have gone up by approximately 3 percent annually. By investing in a solar energy system now, you can repair your electrical energy rate and safeguard versus unforeseeable boosts in electricity costs. If you're an organisation or house owner with fluctuating money circulation, going solar likewise helps you much better forecast and handle your expenses.
#4 Boost your house worth
Numerous research studies have discovered that homes equipped with solar energy systems have higher property values and sell faster 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 become more informed about solar, need for homes geared up with solar panel systems will continue to grow.
#5 Boost U.S. energy self-reliance
The sun is a near-infinite source of energy and a key element of accomplishing energy self-reliance in the United States. By increasing our capacity to generate electricity from the sun, we can likewise insulate our nation from price fluctuations in global energy markets.
#6 Develop jobs and assist your local economy
Inning accordance with The Solar Structure, the solar industry added tasks at a rate almost 12 times faster than the general U.S. economy in 2015, representing 1.2 percent of all jobs in the nation. This growth is expected to continue. Because solar-related jobs have the tendency to be higher paying and can not be outsourced, they are a substantial contributor to the United States economy.
#7 Protect the environment
Solar is an excellent method to lower 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 domestic solar panel system will remove three to four tons of carbon emissions each year-- the equivalent of planting over 100 trees annually.
#8 Demonstrate your commitment to sustainability
Sustainability and business social responsibility are necessary components of an organization's culture and values. They also produce bottom line results. Increasingly, customers and neighborhoods are recognizing and rewarding businesses that opt to run responsibly. Businesses are discovering that "green" credentials are a powerful chauffeur of consumer getting decisions, producing goodwill and enhancing company results.
#9 Start Saving from Day 1
Solar purchase power arrangements (PPAs) and solar leasing has made it possible for homeowners to go solar for little or no cash down.
Numerous house owners select to finance their photovoltaic panels with among the "pay-as-you-go" financing alternatives. This suggests that a third-party business-- the solar provider-- owns the solar system and looks after setup, upkeep, tracking and repair works. You just pay the solar provider for electrical power-- 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 Financial investment
The energy business are notorious for their changing and undependable electrical energy costs. There is clearly an upward trend.
With solar panels and easy mathematics, we can calculate what does it cost? electrical power will be produced, and most significantly, at what price, for a minimum of the next 20 years (repaired energy costs).

There's a number of complicated ways to answer this question, but it's good to keep things as simple as possible.
The most straightforward way to know that EVs are cleaner is to look at the energy used to refine gasoline.
Since it takes more energy to refine gasoline than electric cars use, gasoline must be dirtier - since the gas car burns petroleum in addition to using this refining energy.
A large portion of the refining energy comes from electricity. The rest comes from fossil fuels. There's a statement from the US Energy Information Administration on this page stating that 6 kilowatt-hours of electricity goes into every gallon of gas:
Six KWH is enough electricity to power an electric car 20 to 30 miles. Again, the gas car uses this refining energy (with its pollution), and then burns gasoline, with additional pollution, on top of that. The EV only uses the electricity.
You are correct to point out that electricity loses about 7% efficiency when it moves over power lines to charge electric cars. However, the equivalent step for gasoline - TRUCKING gasoline to thousands of service stations - is far less efficient than that.

How To Design A Model That Will Use Wind , Water , Or Solar Power To Supply Energy?
I Have This Project In Science And I Need To Make A Model That Will Use Renewable Energy , It's Easy To Make , And It Actually Works.The Model Has To Median Not Too Big And Not Too Small.It's Also Going To Need A Really Good Explanation Because I'm Going To Have To Demonstrate It In Front Of My Class And It's A Big Part Of My Grade. Thanks For The Help!
Take a by cycle wheel without tyre. Fix six numbers plastic funnel on its outer that are used in petrol bungs. If you keep it on your house top horizontally it will rotate by wind.You can just fix a toy D.C motors usually available in any battery operated toys.Connect it suitable to rotate the shaft of that tiny motor. You can connect a L.E.D bulb.That will glow.Instead of cycle wheel you can connect it in plastic fan and show it under tap water .That will also rotate and produce energy to light up a L.E.D.
Could A Solar Powered Uv Generator Completely Reverse Agw?
A Follow-Up To My Last Question About Microwave Generators.
If We Had A Solar Powered Device Capable Of Producing Radiation Only In The Uvb Band, And It Were Directed Straight Up, Would This Cause The Stratosphere To Heat Due To The Higher Concentration Of Ozone There?
And If So, Then Since The Device Is Solar Powered And Is Essentially 'Stealing' Energy From The Sun That Would Have Otherwise Gone Into Warming The Surface, It Will Have The Effect Of Redistributing Solar Energy From The Surface To The Stratosphere.
So If Enough Of These Devices Are Built On A Large Enough Scale, Would That &Quot;Rebalance&Quot; The Energy Imbalance Caused By Global Warming (Where The Upper Atmosphere Is Cooling And Lower Atmosphere Is Warming) And Eventually Bring Both Tropospheric And Stratospheric Temperatures Back To Preindustrial Levels, Even Without Worrying About Co2?
Don'T Worry About Practicality, I Am Just Wondering If The Physics Add Up Or If There'S Some Key Piece I'M Missing.
since the oceans are absorbing 95% of the energy, i don't think so.
clearly if you could cover 1/2 the oceans with mirrors, you'd be able to reverse global warming.
but you'd create an environmental disaster in the process.
we've already reduced fish stocks to critical levels in much of the ocean.
depriving the remaining ocean of sunlight would reduce algae and all of the fish that depend on it.
so the 2 problems are,
1. scale, it really is not scalable to the size needed, and
2. location, it doesn't lend itself to being deployed where the problem is most serious.
What Would Make A Solar System Add Energy To An Electric Bill Instead Of Replace It?
We Installed A Pv Solar System For A Customer, But His Meter Is Speeding Up Instead Of Running Backwards Like All The Other Systems. What Could Cause This?
Hey Jared, frustrating problem you have there isn't it? Let's narrow the field a bit. I assume you have an array of some size connected to a grid tie inverter. There are two possibilities here. One, your system is actually pulling power in from the grid when it should be going out. Two, the meter installed on the house is a newer type, which in some cases looks like the old electric-mechanical ones we grew up with, but differs in how the logic inside works. Here is a simple test you can do. Go to the house at a time when you have good midday sun. Have the homeowner turn off all nonessential loads. This will put your system in a state where it should be producing enough power to feed the home and the grid simultaneously. Now examine the meter and see which direction and how fast it is spinning. It should be spinning in a direction that indicates power feeding out to the grid. You won't know which way is which yet, but you will in a minute. Next, have someone turn off the inverter, so that you know no power is feeding back onto the grid, and examine the meter while this is done. If the meter spins faster, but in the same direction, all is well, it means the home was using more power than the array was providing, but deactivating it increased the amount of grid power the house needed to keep running. In this case I would suspect the home has some unknown load someplace, such as an attic fan running continuously, or a well pump with a bad check valve, and so forth. If the meter slows down when you turn off the solar, than it means one of two things. First, that your solar system is actually drawing a load someplace. Without seeing the system you installed I couldn't begin to guess where the problem might be. I would suspect the inverter or AC wiring from the inverter to the house. Second, that the meter on the house is a new type that only runs in one direction, and it sees the extra power from the grid as more load power.
The third thing that could happen is the meter reverses direction when the solar is turned off. This indicates that the system is working well also, but the homeowner simply is using additional power someplace after hours.
As a side note, after doing this test by turning the inverter on and off, try also turning off the AC feed from the house to the inverter while it is running and see if the results are the same. If you get a different result, it might indicate that the solar array is in fine shape, but the AC wiring to the inverter or the inverter itself are suspect.
I'm wondering, you said, "We" installed this array, are you a solar installer for a living? If so you might put in a call to the inverter manufacturers tech support and throw this at them, if problems like this have occured before with their product, they usually know about it.
Good luck Jared, and take care, Rudydoo
