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 property owner to use the sun to power everyday life: running your air conditioning unit, washing clothing, viewing TV, cooking supper. All while minimizing your carbon footprint, and without burning fossil fuels or putting a strain on the electrical grid.

Even if you do not produce One Hundred Percent of the energy you take in, solar will reduce your utility expenses and you'll still conserve a great deal of money.
#2 Make a great return on your financial investment
Photovoltaic panels aren't an expenditure-- they are among the best methods to invest, with returns matching those of more traditional investments like stocks and bonds. Thanks to considerable electrical power bill cost savings, the average American property owner pays off their photovoltaic panel system in seven to eight years and sees an ROI of 20 percent or more.
#3 Secure versus rising energy costs
Among the most clear cut benefits of solar panels is the ability to hedge energy prices. In the previous 10 years, domestic electricity costs have increased by an average of three percent yearly. By purchasing a solar energy system now, you can repair your electrical power rate and safeguard against unforeseeable boosts in electrical power expenses. If you're a business or property owner with changing capital, going solar also assists you much better forecast and handle your costs.
#4 Boost your home or business value
Numerous studies have discovered that houses equipped with solar energy systems have higher residential or commercial property values and offer quicker 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 homebuyers end up being more educated about solar, need for properties 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 component of accomplishing energy independence in the United States. By increasing our capability to generate electrical energy from the sun, we can likewise insulate our nation from rate fluctuations in global energy markets.
#6 Create jobs and assist your local economy

Frequently Asked Questions
Why Choose A Solar Powered Water Feature?
I'M Looking To See The Advantages Of A Solar Powered Water Feature Compared To A Normal Mains Powered One.
What Are The Differences And Are There Any Real Benefits?
Instead of an electricity supply, solar powered water features use photo-voltaic panels to generate low-voltage electricity from the sun’s rays. The power generated should be enough to power a pump for a waterfall or a self-contained feature.
Solar-powered water features allow you to place a water feature anywhere in your garden or yard or even on your balcony, as long as the solar panels can be positioned to catch the sunlight.
The solar panel can either be incorporated into the water feature itself or have a separate, remote panel which is connected by a wire and can be fastened to a wall or fence to allow for best positioning in the sunlight.
A solar-powered fountain in a bird bath is a great way to attract birds to your garden and gives them clean drinking water and a place to splash about though you will need to add fresh water regularly.
A useful safety feature to look out for is cut-off switch that will turn the pump off if all the water in the reservoir evaporates or escapes due to a leak.
Solar-powered water features are generally quick and easy to install and provide an environmentally friendly way improve your outdoor living space.
How Solar Panel Works ?
How Does Solar Panel Make Electricity ?
when sunlight hits a solar panel the photons from the light hit a layer in panel that converts it into electrons through conduction, thus making electricity
Which Is The Best Stock In The Solar Industries ?
For Investments In Solar Stocks Which Are The Best In The World ?
Hands Down the best solar company is the world is First Solar (FSLR), they have projects all over the world in many different counties including a new large Solar Panel Project in China. Also, another company that is a good solar company is Suntech Power (STP). Hope that helps.
New Building Codes To Promote Solar Panel Installation On Private Homes?
Yes? Might be a good idea. But at some point the local power company is going to be in trouble because they're expected to supply power when your solar panel isn't working - and then BUY excess power from the solar collector.
And at some point, the power company will go out of business...... So this issue will have be addressed.
Also........... you know that any day, any year, now there's going to be a breakthrough in solar collectors. So if you put a boatload of money into solar collectors and then three weeks later they invent one which gathers 5 times more power, you're going to cuss yourself for having jumped the gun. This is why a lot of people hold off getting these things. There's a LOT of inventions yet to come in this field. Right now solar collectors aren't that efficient.
Why Solar Panel Are So Expensive?, Low Demand?
In 1960 The Production Cost Of Ic (Integrated Circuits) Was $1000/Ic, Now The Cost Are Cents Or Less Because The High Demand And The Improvement Of The Production Process. At That Time The Only Demand For Ics Was Military And Space Programs.
Are There People Interested In Not Promoting The Demand And/Or Production Improvement Of Solar Panels (Oil, Car Companies) Or It Is Only A Technological Issue?
In 1960, $1000 may not even have bought 1 watt of solar cells, but today, 1 watt (a fraction of a cell) costs about $4. So prices have come down.
The difference between solar panels and IC's are that solar panels have a lot of raw material, and IC's have very little. The material cost (not counting processing) of an IC may be just a few cents, but a solar panel has a significant amount of silicon, not to mention an aluminum frame, and hermetically sealed low-iron glass. So a solar panel can never be 25 cents, any more than a double-pane glass window can be 25 cents.
That said, I think panel prices will drop some 20-25 percent in 2009.
