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 house owners to use the sun to power everyday life: running your a/c unit, cleaning clothes, viewing TV, cooking supper. All while reducing your carbon footprint, and without burning nonrenewable fuel sources or putting a pressure on the electrical grid. And while the ecological benefits of solar power are considerable, many residents find that the benefit, special features, and cost savings of owning a solar power system are much more enticing.
Top Ten Benefits of Solar Energy

#2 Make a great return on your financial investment
Solar panels aren't a cost-- they're one of the best ways to invest, with returns matching those of more standard investments like stocks and bonds. Thanks to considerable electricity expense cost savings, the average American house owner settles their photovoltaic panel system in 7 to eight years and sees an ROI of 20 percent or more.
#3 Secure against rising energy costs
Among the most clear cut advantages of solar panels is the ability to hedge energy rates. In the past ten years, residential electricity rates have gone up by an average of 3 percent each year. By investing in a solar energy system now, you can repair your electrical energy rate and safeguard versus unforeseeable boosts in electrical power expenses. If you're an organisation or house owner with ever-changing cash flow, going solar likewise assists you better projection and manage your costs.

Numerous studies have actually discovered that homes equipped with solar energy systems have higher property worths and sell faster than non-solar houses. Appraisers are significantly taking solar installations into consideration as they value houses at the time of a sale, and as homebuyers end up being more educated about solar, need for properties equipped with photovoltaic panel systems will continue to grow.
#5 Increase U.S. energy self-reliance
The sun is a near-infinite source of energy and a key component of achieving energy self-reliance in the United States. By increasing our capacity to generate electrical power from the sun, we can also insulate our country from rate variations in international energy markets.
#6 Create jobs and help your local economy
Inning accordance with The Solar Structure, the solar industry 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 nation. This development is expected to continue. Since solar-related tasks have the tendency to be greater paying and can not be contracted out, they are a considerable contributor to the United States economy.

Increasingly, customers and neighborhoods are recognizing and rewarding services that opt to operate properly. Businesses are finding that "green" qualifications are an effective motorist of customer purchasing decisions, developing goodwill and improving business results.
#9 Start Saving from Day 1
Solar purchase power agreements (PPAs) and solar leasing has actually made it possible for property owners to go solar for little or no money down.
Many property owners opt to fund their photovoltaic panels with one of the "pay-as-you-go" funding alternatives. This implies that a third-party business-- the solar supplier-- owns the solar system and takes care of installation, upkeep, tracking and repairs. You simply pay the solar provider for electrical power-- less than you would've paid the utility company.
Since June 2013, 75% of all American homes have access to pay-as-you-go solar.
#10. Solar is a Secure Investment
The energy business are infamous for their varying and undependable electrical energy costs. There is clearly an upward trend.
With solar panels and basic mathematics, we can compute what does it cost? electrical energy will be generated, and most importantly, at exactly what cost, for a minimum of the next 20 years (fixed energy costs).
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.

Frequently Asked Questions
Where I Can Find This Solar Panel?
Where I Can Find Solar Panel The Has 4.8 Volts? Like Those Solar Walkway Light Or Something That Has 4.8 Volts Solar Panel.
Do You Think I Can Get It From Home Depot?
How much current are you looking for? If its under 500mA, then they are fairly cheap. Over an amp and the price climbs.
Here's a few ideas -
All in one simple changer -
If you know something about electronics (series-parallel electrical circuits) and know how to solder. You can build your own -
For a recharger system, its usually best to have charge controller. This device regulates the current and voltage to whatever you are using as a load.
The other thing to do is to search for "DIY solar chargers" for more information.
How Do You Make Your Own Solar Panels?
I Have Heard You Can Make Your Own Solar Panels.... But How?
Where Do You Start? Is It Cheap, Or Should I Just Buy Them Already Made?
if you're hoping to put 'em on your house and use 'em to supplement power from the grid, then you'll want to buy them.
the panels have to be made with exotic chemicals, in a "clean" environment, with dangerous chemicals.
anyone who tells you that you can make 'em yourself will be asking for money for the plans.
in truth, you could get an old panel, and, if it was the right voltage, you could use it to charge your rechargeable batteries.
typically, that's not the hoped for application.
and, to get enough power for you house, you're not going to be able to "do it yourself."
whenever you buy anything, make sure you know what it can do.
ie, read the fine print.
if it's a few hundred (or thousand) dollars, it's not going to be useful to augment your home power.
in addition to the strength, there's also the equipment that's needed to sync it up with the power from the utility, and that's neither cheap, nor a do-it-yourself project.
i've seen lots of "panels" but when you read the specs, they're pretty useless.
not good for battery charging, not for hooking up to your house.
in other words, interesting projects with no practical use.
What Stockes Will Be Profitable Because Of Summer? In 2011.?
What Do You Think About Dow, Starting To Make Solar Panels In The Usa?
Retailers do well in good weather (clothing, holiday gear).
Dow Chemicals is a massive and diverse company. I imagine the solar panel division is a very small part of the overall business. And one summer doesn't make a swallow!
What Are Solar Panels Made Of?
Solar panels are instruments made from "Silicon Cells" having the characteristic to convert solar energy into electricity.
Sunlight is composed of miniscule particles called photons. When the sun’s photons are consumed by the silicon atoms of the "Silicon Cells", the atomic creation of the solar panel is organized in such a way that electricity is generated.
When these solar cells are accumulated together with wiring, they become one concrete panel.
Where Are The Best Places To Put Solar Panels?
By Best I Mean Safest Places. If I Were To Install Them On My Roof Am I Risking Due To Damage From Weathering? Such As Rain Or Snow. I Don'T Get Very High Winds Around Here, Nor Any Natural Disasters Such As Hurricanes Or Tornadoes. Does Anyone Have Solar Panels That Have Been Durable For A Long Time? Is It Worth The Investment?
Photovoltaic panels are designed to be put on a roof, exposed (obviously) to sun, but also rain, snow, and wind. Generally, there is even a rating for something like 1" hail. A good mounting system will be stronger than the underlying roof, so will withstand most anything short of a direct hit by a tornado or hurricane.
There are a few panels from the 70's (that's the 1970's) still in operation, I believe. They look horrible, but are still producing a little electricity. Since then, housings have improved, and panels generally have a 25-year warranty today (some cheap ones are 20-year warranty).
