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 use the sun to power daily life: running your a/c, washing clothing, viewing TV, cooking supper. All while decreasing your carbon footprint, and without burning fossil fuels or putting a strain on the electrical grid. And while the environmental benefits of solar power are substantial, many property owners discover that the benefit, unique functions, and expense savings of owning a solar power system are a lot more attractive.
Leading Benefits of Solar Energy
#1 Significantly lower or even remove your electrical costs
Whether you're a homeowner, organization, or not-for-profit, electrical energy expenses can comprise a big portion of your regular monthly expenses. With a solar panel system, you'll create totally free power for your system's entire 25+ year lifecycle. Even if you don't produce 100 percent of the energy you consume, solar will lower your utility bills and you'll still conserve a lot of money.
#2 Earn an excellent return on your financial investment
Solar panels aren't an expenditure-- they are among the very best ways to invest, with returns rivaling those of more traditional financial investments like stocks and bonds. Thanks to significant electrical energy bill cost savings, the average American property owner settles their solar panel system in 7 to 8 years and sees an ROI of 20 percent or more.
#3 Safeguard versus increasing energy expenses
One of the most clear cut benefits of solar panels is the capability to hedge utility rates. In the past 10 years, residential electricity rates have actually gone up by approximately three percent each year. By investing in a solar energy system now, you can fix your electricity rate and secure versus unpredictable increases in electrical energy expenses. If you're a business or homeowner with ever-changing capital, going solar likewise helps you better projection and handle your expenditures.
#4 Increase your house value
Several research studies have actually discovered that homes geared up with solar energy systems have higher residential or commercial property values and offer faster than non-solar homes. Appraisers are significantly taking solar installations into consideration as they value homes at the time of a sale, and as homebuyers end up being more informed about solar, demand for properties equipped 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 an essential element of accomplishing energy self-reliance in the United States. By increasing our capacity to generate electrical energy from the sun, we can likewise insulate our nation from rate changes in global energy markets.
#6 Develop jobs and assist your regional economy
Inning accordance with The Solar Structure, the solar industry added 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 country. This growth is anticipated to continue. Due to the fact that solar-related jobs have the tendency to be higher paying and can not be outsourced, they are a considerable contributor to the United States economy.

Lots of property owners decide to finance their solar panels with among the "pay-as-you-go" funding choices. This means that a third-party business-- the solar supplier-- owns the planetary system and looks after installation, upkeep, monitoring and repair works. You merely pay the solar supplier for electricity-- less than you would've paid the energy 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 utility companies are well-known for their changing and undependable electrical power costs. There is plainly an upward trend.
With solar panels and easy math, we can compute just how much electrical energy will be generated, and most importantly, at what rate, for a minimum of the next 20 years (repaired energy costs).

Frequently Asked Questions
Where Can I Buy New Sheet Like Solar Panel?
I Am Going To Be Buying House Within 3 Years And When I Do I Am Planning To Setup Solar Panels. Right Now Solar Panels Are Bulky Expensive And Not Even Efficient. But When I Watch Discover Or Science Channel They Show Me That There Are Very Cheap And Efficient Solar Panel That Is Like A Sheet Developed And Now Manufacturing. I Looked Up But I Could Not Find Find Where They Sell Them. Do Anyone Know They Sell The New Solar Panel? If Not When Do You Think It Will Be Sold To Consumers?
The sheet like solar panel you are describing is called Thin Film Photo Voltaics or TFPV for short. The Brunton Solaroll is a portable version of it. I believe a company called INNOVALIGHT is developing/manufacturing it. Unfortunately they do not seem to be selling it as of yet.
What Color Spectrum Does Solar Panels Except.?
Solar panels *accept* all incoming energy from the sunlight. They can only make use of specific wavelengths for electrical generation while the rest is either re-emitted or absorbed as heat energy.
Since most of the energy from the sun lies in the infrared, visible, and ultraviolet area of the Electromagnetic spectrum, photovoltaic cells (normal solar panels) are designed to convert these wavelengths over to electricity as efficiently as possible. (Commonly just absorb visible and ultraviolet light, as infrared is more difficult to absorb.)
Some wavelengths the solar panel cannot convert to electricity. These are either reflected like a mirror or absorbed as heat. An example: your arm in the sun. It appears tan because it reflects only certain orange/red pigments from the white sunlight, and warms up because it absorbs the blue and green colors. A white flower reflects ultraviolet light and visible light to attract more insects and stay cooler. A good solar panel appears "black" because it absorbs all of these different colors.
What Size Of Solar Panels Do I Need To Charge 3 12V Batteries?
I Need This For My Semi Truck
you need 3 panels, with 3 diodes that will limit the voltage to 12 volts most of the solar panels give 10 to 17 volts, if the day is very sunny a small panel will take 10 hours or more to charge
a big panel will take less time,
same with battery's if big , it will take longer you have to multiply the current amps per hour by the sunlight hours, that is the total current you will get
lets say you get 5 amps and 10 hours of light that is 50 amps most batteries take 55 amps,
if the battery is death i am sure they are not all the way down
3.5 amps panle
best panel more current
Harbor Freight Solar Panels ?
Any Opinion On Harbor Freight Solar Panels ?
Yes -- don't buy them.
They are low quality solar panels, and the e-z kit they sell produces barely enough power for a lightbulb.
The kit they commonly sell is a good child's science fair experiment/project, but do not expect to get your money's worth in solar power.
If you are attempting to self-teach yourself on solar panels, this might be a good starting point, if not also a little expensive.
But again, do not purchase Harbor Freight solar panels, or their e-z kit.
If you are serious about getting into solar panels, there are distributors who will gladly talk to you about what kind of solar panels you will need for a regular house (hint: it is actually a pretty big set of solar panels for even a low power usage home).
How Much Would It Cost To Place Solar Panels On 1,800 Square Feet Of Roof Space?
I Live In Southern California. About 1100 Square Feet Of My Home'S Roof Space Faces Toward South. Another 700 Square Feet Are From A Covered Porch Facing The Same Direction. Where Can I Get A Good Estimate Of The Cost Of Installing And Maintaining A Solar Panel System On My Roof? I Also Want To Know If There Are Any Government Rebates/Incentives Offered.
Once your indoor lighting has been installed you will be able to use the lighting both night and day. During the day you may not need it except on cloudy days. During the night you should have enough energy from the solar power to last you through the night. It is becoming the latest in lighting barns on farms as well because there is no wiring needed to get lighting out to the barn. just the cheapest solar panels and thats all.
