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 everyday life: running your a/c unit, washing clothing, viewing TELEVISION, cooking supper. All while decreasing your carbon footprint, and without burning nonrenewable fuel sources or putting a pressure on the electrical grid. And while the ecological advantages of solar power are considerable, lots of home owners find 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 Drastically lower and even remove your electric expenses
Whether you're a property owner, service, or not-for-profit, electrical power expenses can comprise a large portion of your regular monthly expenditures. With a photovoltaic panel system, you'll create complimentary power for your system's entire 25+ year lifecycle. Even if you do not produce One Hundred Percent of the energy you consume, solar will reduce your utility expenses and you'll still save a lot of loan.
#2 Earn a great return on your financial investment
Solar panels aren't an expense-- they are among the very best ways to invest, with returns equaling those of more standard financial investments like stocks and bonds. Thanks to substantial electrical power costs cost savings, the typical American house owner settles their solar panel system in 7 to eight years and sees an ROI of 20 percent or more.
#3 Secure versus rising energy costs
Among the most clear cut advantages of photovoltaic panels is the ability to hedge utility costs. In the past ten years, residential electricity prices have actually increased by approximately three percent each year. By buying a solar energy system now, you can repair your electrical power rate and secure against unpredictable increases in electricity costs. If you're a service or homeowner with fluctuating capital, going solar also helps you better forecast and handle your expenses.
#4 Boost your residential or commercial property worth
Multiple research studies have found that houses geared up with solar energy systems have greater home worths and offer faster than non-solar homes. Appraisers are progressively taking solar installations into factor to consider as they value homes at the time of a sale, and as property buyers become more educated about solar, need for residential or commercial properties 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 an essential element of achieving energy independence in the United States. By increasing our capability to produce electricity from the sun, we can likewise insulate our nation from rate changes in international energy markets.
#6 Create jobs and assist 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 tasks in the country. This growth is anticipated to continue. Due to the fact that solar-related tasks tend to be greater paying and can not be contracted out, they are a significant contributor to the United States economy.
#7 Secure the environment
Solar is an excellent way to lower your carbon footprint. Buildings are accountable for 38 percent of all carbon emissions in the United States, and going solar can significantly decrease that number. A typical residential solar panel system will remove three to four loads of carbon emissions each year-- the equivalent of planting over 100 trees each year.
#8 Show your commitment to sustainability
Sustainability and business social obligation are very important components of an organization's culture and values. They also produce bottom line results. Increasingly, customers and communities are recognizing and rewarding companies that opt to operate properly. Services are discovering that "green" qualifications are an effective chauffeur of customer buying decisions, developing goodwill and enhancing business results.
#9 Start Saving from Day 1
Solar purchase power contracts (PPAs) and solar leasing has actually made it possible for homeowners to go solar for little or no loan down.
Many homeowners decide to fund their photovoltaic panels with one of the "pay-as-you-go" funding alternatives. This implies that a third-party company-- the solar supplier-- owns the solar system and takes care of setup, maintenance, tracking and repairs. You merely pay the solar provider for electrical energy-- 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 Financial investment
The utility companies are infamous for their fluctuating and undependable electrical power costs. There is plainly an upward trend.
With photovoltaic panels and simple math, we can calculate what does it cost? electrical power will be created, and most importantly, at what cost, for at least the next 20 years (fixed energy expenses).

Frequently Asked Questions
What Are Some Ideas To Re-Invent An (Everyday) Product To Make It More Eco Friendly?
Ex. Like A Solar Powered Ipod...Or They Might Have Tht
Well, there are some things that we ARE reinventing.
Computers already use MUCH MUCH less power than they did 15 or 20 years ago, and you get much more bang for the buck.
You will see products like the I-Pod Nano and shuffle become more popular than other items, wearable technology. Eventually this technology will power off of our movement and our own electrical output (humans create a small electrical charge ourselves), machines could be made to run on that.
Before that however you will see clothing with integrated solar fibers or some such, where your coat generates 2 or 3 volts when there is light out.
Most products will become MUCH less bulky in packaging and start using simple wax-paper or something similar, both sustainable AND lower energy (but not necessarily cheaper - at least initially), since boxes, plastics and other things might not be involved.
Cars - the biggest thing in cars is likely to be increasingly efficient BATTERIES, 150 year old technology - to the rescue.
After the calamity of Detriot is finished you will see either old companies adapt or new companies rise up and start making good cars again, Eventually we will have hyper-efficient cars, something like the Prius that can run on a battery for a 40 or 50 mile range and then use either solar/or some such to recharge.
But OIL and gasoline are going to be in increasingly short supply, and we need - as a nation, to deal effectively with that challenge.
Green Energy - Expert Opinion Questions?
I Am Working On A High School Research Project, And I Need A Few Questions Answered By Someone Knowledgeable In The Field Of Green Energy. It Is The &Quot;Ask The Expert&Quot; Portion Of The Project. If Your Profession Has To Do With This, I Would Be Extremely Appreciative If You Could Answer Any Ten Of The Below Questions With Your Personal Opinions (And Also Include Your Name And Occupation Please, So That I Can Correctly Cite You As My Source).
My Paper Is On The &Quot;Micromanagement Of Green Energy&Quot;, Encase You Were Wondering. It'S Condensed Thesis Is Essentially: “Though Large-Scale Efforts By Big Corporations And Organizations Will Help Along The Way, The True Success Of The Global Movement Toward A Greener World Lies With Individual Efforts, Such As Recycling And Energy Conservation.”
You Do Not Have To Agree With That Opinion. I Would Love To Hear Your True Thoughts. And You Don'T Need To Be An Expert In Green Energy, Per Se. Any Occupation Which Can Be Related (Without Too Much Convolution) To The Topic Is Just Fine.
But Anyways; Again, Any Ten Of The Below Questions Answered, And You Will Be My Hero Forever:
1. Who Do You Believe Is Currently Making The Biggest Impact In Moving Society In A Greener Direction (Corporations, Government, Environmental Groups, Individuals, Etc.)?
2. What Kind Impact Do You Believe The Above Entity Is Making, In Regards To A Greener Society?
3. What Do You Believe Was, Is, Or Will Be The Most Important Technological Innovation Or Advancement In The Field Of Green Energy?
4. How Do You Think This New Technology Will Change Society As A Whole, Or The Daily Lives Of Individuals?
5. As Nonrenewable Resources Come Close To Exhaustion, What Renewable Resource, In Your Opinion, Will Prove To Be The Most Applicable For Powering Society?
6. Why Do You Believe This Resource Rises Above The Other Potential Renewable Energy Sources?
7. How Much Of A Role Do You Believe Individual Efforts, Such As Recycling Or Water Conservation, Will Play In Furthering The Green Movement?
8. What Measures, If Any, Do You Think Large-Scale Corporations, Or Other Environmentally Minded Organizations, Can Take (Or Are Taking) To Make A Significant Impact On The Environmental Scene?
9. What Country, Or Countries, Do You Believe Are The Most Environmentally Conscious?
10. What Practices Occur In That Location Should Be Imitated In Other Areas Order To Lessen The Environmental Footprint Of Those Areas?
11. What Do You Believe Is Entailed In The “Micromanagement Of Green Energy?”
12. Despite Many Advances In Solar Efficiency, The Technology Is Still Not Very Widely Used In America. What Do You Think It Will Take For Technologies Such As This To “Catch On” In The General Public?
The first one is government. Why? because its a money loosing to switch. Also you can add for every green job added two jobs are lost. Look at spain. So far there is no technology that can get off of gas and or coal. So no it has not helped one bit yet other than loose jobs and burn our food that we eat with ethanol. And so yes about changing our lives because going green has cap and trade and that can potentially lead to high gas prices which would lead to hyperinflation. Which could lead to genocide. For number 5 and 6 no one had any idea because it doesnt exist or we would all be using it. Its great to recycle anything that we can however cap and trade will destroy america. China is the biggest pollunent and most of the world has zero green rules. For number 12 is simple and its called supply and deman. Its too expensive for solar or everyone would be using it if it was cheaper than coal.
What Green Sea Dweller Lives Of Its Own Produced Solar Energy And Recycles The Poison From Its Prey?
Could it be a nudibranch (sea slug)? I think some kinds eat sea anemones, and save the stinging cells for their own use. But the part about green confuses me. That makes it sound like a plant.
What Is The Latest Development In Solar Energy?
Solar energy can potentially play a very important role in providing most of the heating, cooling and electricity needs of the world. With the emergence of solar photocatalytic detoxification technology, solar energy also has the potential to solve our environmental problems. However, we do not see widespread commercial use of solar energy. Some of the emerging developments in solar may change that situation. This paper describes some of the new and emerging developments, with special emphasis on:
(1) nanoscale antennas for direct conversion of sunlight to electricity with potential conversion efficiencies approaching 80–90%;
(2) new thermodynamic cycles for solar thermal power, that have the potential to reduce capital costs by 50%; and
(3) solar photocatalytic oxidation for cleanup of industrial wastewater, drinking water, soil and air. The paper describes the fundamentals of each of these developments, their potential, present status and future opportunities for research.
(1) Nanoscale antenna solar energy conversion: The current photovoltaic technologies rely on the quantum nature of light and semiconductors which are fundamentally limited by the band-gap energies. A revolutionary new approach suggested by Professor Robert Bailey in 1972 revolves around the wave nature of light. Professor Bailey suggested that broadband rectifying antennas could be used for solar to d.c. conversion. These rectennas would not have the fundamental limitation of semiconductor band-gap limiting their conversion efficiencies. Rectennas for solar conversion would have dimensions of the order of the wavelengths of solar radiation which falls mostly in the sub-micron range. The challenges in actually achieving the objectives are many. This paper describes the challenges and approaches to their solution.
(2) New thermodynamic cycles for solar thermal power: It is recognized that the capital costs of solar thermal power will have to be reduced by about 50% in the near future in order to make it competitive with fossil fuels (especially natural gas) based power systems. Potential exists for meeting this goal by reducing the costs and improving the thermodynamic performance of power cycles by hybridization and combined cycle approaches and by employing new and innovative ideas in thermal power cycles. This paper describes the new thermodynamic approaches with an emphasis on an innovative new thermodynamic cycle using ammonia and water mixtures as the working fluids.
(3) Solar photocatalytic detoxification and disinfection of water and air: Although the potential of solar radiation for disinfection and environmental mitigation has been known for years, only recently has this technology been scientifically recognized and researched. Solar photocatalytic oxidation has been demonstrated to effectively treat groundwater, drinking water, and industrial wastewater. In some applications such as decoloration and reduction of COD it may be the only effective method of treatment. Treatment of indoor air by the photocatalytic method has been demonstrated as the most effective technology for that application. This paper describes the recent developments and identify challenges and future research opportunities.
