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 everyday life: running your a/c, cleaning clothes, enjoying TV, cooking supper. All while reducing your carbon footprint, and without burning nonrenewable fuel sources or putting a stress on the electrical grid. And while the ecological benefits of solar power are significant, numerous home owners discover that the convenience, distinct functions, and cost savings of owning a solar power system are a lot more enticing.
Top Ten Advantages of Solar Energy
#1 Considerably minimize and even eliminate your electrical expenses
Whether you're a property owner, service, or not-for-profit, electricity expenses can comprise a large portion of your month-to-month costs. With a photovoltaic panel system, you'll produce totally free 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 costs and you'll still conserve a lot of cash.
#2 Earn a terrific return on your investment
Photovoltaic panels aren't a cost-- they are among the very best ways to invest, with returns measuring up to those of more standard investments like stocks and bonds. Thanks to significant electricity expense cost savings, the average American homeowner settles their photovoltaic panel system in 7 to 8 years and sees an ROI of 20 percent or more.
#3 Protect versus rising energy costs
One of the most clear cut advantages of photovoltaic panels is the capability to hedge utility prices. In the previous 10 years, residential electricity rates have increased by approximately 3 percent annually. By investing in a solar energy system now, you can repair your electrical energy rate and protect versus unforeseeable boosts in electrical energy costs. If you're an organisation or homeowner with changing capital, going solar also assists you better projection and manage your expenses.
#4 Increase your house value
Multiple studies have found that homes geared up with solar energy systems have higher home worths and offer quicker than non-solar homes. Appraisers are significantly 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 homes equipped 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 a crucial component of achieving energy independence in the United States. By increasing our capacity to generate electrical power from the sun, we can also insulate our country from price changes in global energy markets.
#6 Develop jobs and help your local economy
According to The Solar Structure, the solar market included tasks at a rate almost 12 times faster than the total 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 contracted out, they are a substantial contributor to the U.S. economy.
#7 Secure the environment
Solar is a fantastic method to minimize your carbon footprint. Buildings are accountable for 38 percent of all carbon emissions in the United States, and going solar can considerably decrease that number. A normal domestic solar panel system will get rid of three to four heaps 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 essential elements of an organization's culture and values. They also produce bottom line results. Significantly, customers and neighborhoods are acknowledging and rewarding companies that pick to run responsibly. Organisations are finding that "green" qualifications are a powerful chauffeur of consumer purchasing choices, producing goodwill and improving service results.
#9 Start Conserving from Day 1
Solar purchase power agreements (PPAs) and solar leasing has made it possible for house owners to go solar for little or no money down.
Lots of property owners pick to finance their solar panels with one of the "pay-as-you-go" funding choices. This suggests that a third-party business-- the solar service provider-- owns the solar system and looks after installation, maintenance, tracking and repair works. You simply pay the solar company for electrical energy-- less than you would've paid the energy business.
As of June 2013, 75% of all American houses have access to pay-as-you-go solar.
#10. Solar is a Secure Financial investment
The energy business are well-known for their fluctuating and undependable electrical power costs. There is plainly an upward trend.

Frequently Asked Questions
Are Solar Panels Dangerous?
Ok I Read That Some Material Known As &Quot;Cadmium Telluride&Quot; Is Poisonous When Exposed To Extreme Heat And Surely Solar Panels Are &Quot;Exposed&Quot; To. Also - Said Material Is Used In Many Solar Panels? 10X.
Very clean, very safe! I wouldn't sleep next to one at night or try and lick one but in every day to day life they are absolutely fine and about as much danger as the nearest highway!
Where Can I Get High Efficiency, Small Solar Panels?
I'M Talking Highest Current Possible (I'M Looking For 500 Ma And Up Total) And Voltage Between 4.5 And 9 Volts At A Small Size. Basically The Best Possible. I Am Willing To Pay Whatever Price. I Can Either Connect Small Ones Together Or Use One Big Panel, Either Way Can'T Be Much Bigger Than About 200 Mm X 150 Mm. What I'M Seeing Just Doesn'T Cut It. Http://Www.Futurlec.Com/ Is The Only Site With Decent Ones But It Ships From Overseas And I Need These Asap.
That's 6" x 8", or 1/3 square foot. 10-12 watts per square foot is easily achievable with standard silicon cells, so you should be able to string together something that will satisfy the low end of your power range. Have you tried Electronic Goldmine?
If cost is really no object, you can inquire at SpectraLabs about multilayer cells. I believe they're running about $250-300 a watt, but don't know if you could make arrangements to buy the small quantity you want. You may have to buy a box of 100.
Planning A Motorcycle Road Trip, Is There A Solar Charger I Can Attach To My Backpack To Charge My Devices?
I Will Be Using My Phone As A Gps, I'Ve Got Plenty Of Data So That'S No Issue, But I Was Wondering If You Guys Could Recommend A Solar Panel Product That Has A Usb Output That Would Be Good To Attach To The Back Of My Backpack Or Motorcycle To Charge My Phone As I Drive During The Day. I Don'T Mean Some Expensive Backpack That Has A Solar Panel Built Into It, I Mean Something I Could Attach 4 Corners To The Back Of A Military Style Backpack And That Can Handle Some Wind Preferably. I'Ll Either Have It On The Backpack Or Strapped Down On The Tail End Of The Bike. Thanks A Lot Guys^^
How about adding 12v receptacle to the bike and using standard car charger - - not too difiicult - you can either switch with ignition or run it strraight to the battery. I did the latter and use the port to attach my battery tender as well as power a GPS or monitor battery voltage. Pretty handy really.
If you go the solar panel route make sure it is waterproof-and you are at a stopping point on rainy days before the phone/gps gives out.
Are Solar Panels Worth It?
The Horrible Events In Japan Have Triggered A New Thinking In Me. I Try To Find A Way To Switch Over To Renewable Energies But The Web Tells Me That It'S Expensive As Hell To Get A Solar Panel On The Roof. Are Solar Panels Worth The Cost Or Should I Stay With Nuclear Energies?
Thanks For Answering!
I totally agree with you that the nuclear accident should effect the people's opinion concerning that opportunity to recover energy.
A friend of mine lives in Scottsdale, AZ and he had set up his own solar panel. As far as I know, he didn't pay that much on it. If you ask company's services you probably pay up to 20K bucks but in my opinion those services are scam and you'd better through your money out of the window.
My friend is totally satisfied with his solar panel. He built his solar panels on his own and saved a bunch of money. You don't have to be that good at handicrafts. He watched DIY instructions. All in all he invested just a few hundreds of dollars. My friend gave me the web address he purchased all the information from. Take a look at the credits below. I posted the link there. If you like to, I can give you my friend's phone number, he agreed to share some information with you.
Hope that I could help you =)
How Many Solar Panels To Compete With Thorium Reactor?
People Proclaim That Renewable Energy Is Best, Such As Solar Panels... But How Many Solar Panels Would It Take To Be Comparable To One 1000 Mega Watt Thorium Reactor?
1600Kw per acre at maximum efficiency, some solar farms have been only able to generate at 37% (during sunlight hours) so far, so you do the math.
That is not counting all the cleaning and maintainance they require.
