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

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

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).

Frequently Asked Questions
Solar Power Cheaper Or More Expensive?
Is Solar Power Cheaper Than Regular Electricity Some People Say That If Your Home Is Completely Solar Powered It Is Free But What About The Cost Of The Batteries It Would Take To Store The Energy When They Run Out You Have To By New Batteries I Know Batteries Or Not Cheap
Solar is one of the most expensive. You have it right. The cost of the panels, regular replacement of batteries and the electronics to turn DC into AC all get figured into the cost. Also solar panels have about a 20 year life span before they need to be replaced.
Oil is free to until you and in the cost of drilling, refining and shipping.
If You Have A Coffee Pot That Uses 1000 Watts And You Leave It On For One Hour, It Uses 1 Kwh, Right?
How Many Watts Would A Solar Panel Have To Be Rated For If The Panel 'Ran' At Full For 10 Hours A Day In Order To Power The Coffee Pot That Was Left One For 5 Hours A Day?
You didn't say "rated for 1000 watts", you said "uses 1000 watts". Anyway, ignoring the example you gave, 1000 watts for one hour is
Actually your whole question sounds theoretical, since you specify that the solar panel runs at full capacity for 10 hours and this is impossible.
The biggest problem with your question, theoretical or not, is that you can't run a load at 1000 W off of a source that only supplies 500 W.
You'd have to have a battery to store the 5 hours of solar panel output before the load started running for 5 hours, and then having the panel and battery together supplying the load.
Some1 Super Familiar W/ Batteries, Electricity N Solar Panels Please Help Me With Questions On How To Get Electricity To A Cabin Without....?
I Am Moving On To An Organic Farm And Will Be Living In A Beautiful Log Cabin, Without Electricity. I Would Like To Be Able To Keep My Laptop Charged, Have A Lamp On At Night And Keep A Fan Going On At Night. Does Anyone Actually,Know Of A Creative Way To Get Electricity Out There. I Was Thinking A Solar Panel In The Field To Charge A Marine Battery...? I Dont Know How Big Of A Solar Panel Or Battery I Would Need Though... I Was Thinking Since I Am Not Too Too Far From Their House And Its An Organic Farm A Generator Might Not Be Appropriate And My Cabin Is In The Woods So A Solar Panel Directly Near The Cabin Wouldnt Work Either. I Move April 9Th So I Am Cutting It Short Looking For Ideas, And I Am Looking To Spend No More Than 4Hundred. Help Please!
Taylor, not really a hard project. If it were me, I would use two Trojan T-105 golf cart batteries, you need two because they are 6 volts each, wire them in series for 12 volts. That will give you a 220 amp hour battery. Now go to ebay and look for a panel, no more than 80 watts, but at least 50 watts. Should cost around $90. When the panel comes, see if there are little black diodes across two of the terminal screws in the junction box on the back of the panel. Most have them installed. If so, you only need to connect the positive of the panel to the positive of the battery, and the negative to the negative, and your batteries are charging. You won't need a charge controller if you use the golf cart batteries since the maximum panel amps is less than 2% of the battery capacity, it can't overcharge the batteries. Now go to superbrightleds.com and order a couple small waterproof LED warm white light strips, a 1 foot strip costs around $10. Two of them are great for reading under and they use 1.4 watts each. Get a couple other ones if you like, but use LED's, they are so much more efficient, and since they are 12 volt, you don't need an inverter to run them. Inverters use power just being turned on.
For the laptop, you will need an inverter, I would just look for one around 600 - 800 watts at an auto parts store, or Home Depot, or Harbor Freight, cost around $60. Just use it when you need to charge the laptop, no more than a couple hours a day, and do it when the sun is shining if possible, during the day, instead of running the battery down at night and counting on the panel to recharge in the day, you'll use less power this way. You can also connect a car cigarette lighter outlet to the battery and charge cell phones, ipods, and run MP3 speakers for music off them. Any small electronic device with a car cord will work, even a portable DVD player for the car works fine, we use it on the sailboat this way.
If you want to use a marine battery instead, maybe if you have one already, then get a charge controller, at least a 10 amp model set up for 12 volts. Many work in multiple voltages, 12/24 for example, they are fine. They are even easier to hook up, since they have two screws for the panel, two for the battery, and two for your output, connect the car cigarette lighter outlet there, then you don't have to worry about diodes or over charging. A controller like this might cost you $25 on ebay.
Hi Everybody My Question Is Relating With Solar Panel Plz Some Body Clear Me About Decrease In Amp Of Panel?
Is Current Of Solar Panel Decrease With The Life Cycle Or It Remains Constant.
All semiconductor materials degrade with use, although very slowly, and solar panels are no exception.
Warranties for modern solar panels are written to guarantee 80% of the nameplate power after 25 years. From that, you can get an idea of the degradation.
Cheap amorphous panels may come with only a 90-day warranty, or no warranty at all. That type of panel can go down to 1/3 of the nameplate value in a year.
How To Generate Electricity In Space?
Is There Any Other Way To Generate Electricity In Space Besides Solar Panels?
Thanks In Advance.
A combination of systems, such as a hybrid system would be the most effective.
Of course solar panels are the best way, but due to the inverse square law, the further you are from a star, the less power you can generate. This is good for when you are in close to a star. But the most efficient way would be nuclear fusion. This is the way stars are actually powered, but humans are yet to achieve this. We currently use nuclear fission, which is ok, but we need to improve our techniques.
