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 use the sun to power daily life: running your a/c, washing clothes, watching TV, cooking dinner. All while decreasing your carbon footprint, and without burning fossil fuels or putting a stress on the electrical grid. And while the environmental advantages of solar power are significant, numerous homeowners find that the benefit, distinct functions, and cost savings of owning a solar power system are much more alluring.
Top 10 Advantages of Solar Energy
#1 Considerably lower or even remove your electric bills

With a photovoltaic panel system, you'll create free power for your system's whole 25+ year lifecycle. Even if you don't produce 100 percent of the energy you take in, solar will lower your energy costs and you'll still save a lot of cash.
#2 Make an excellent return on your financial investment
Photovoltaic panels aren't a cost-- they are among the very best ways to invest, with returns rivaling those of more traditional investments like stocks and bonds. Thanks to considerable electrical power expense savings, the average American homeowner 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 rates. In the past ten years, domestic electrical power costs have actually gone up by an average of 3 percent yearly. By investing in a solar energy system now, you can fix your electrical energy rate and protect against unpredictable boosts in electricity expenses. If you're a company or house owner with ever-changing money flow, going solar likewise helps you better projection and handle your expenditures.
#4 Increase your home or business worth
Numerous studies have found that homes equipped with solar energy systems have higher home values and sell more rapidly than non-solar houses. Appraisers are significantly taking solar setups into consideration as they value houses at the time of a sale, and as property buyers end up being more informed about solar, need for homes geared up with photovoltaic 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 element of accomplishing energy independence in the United States. By increasing our capacity to create electrical energy from the sun, we can also insulate our nation from rate fluctuations in international energy markets.
#6 Develop jobs and help your regional economy
Inning accordance with The Solar Foundation, the solar industry included tasks at a rate nearly 12 times faster than the total U.S. economy in 2015, representing 1.2 percent of all jobs in the country. This development is anticipated to continue. Due to the fact that solar-related tasks have the tendency to be greater paying and can not be outsourced, they are a substantial contributor to the U.S. economy.

Numerous homeowners select to fund their solar panels with among the "pay-as-you-go" funding options. This implies that a third-party company-- the solar supplier-- owns the solar system and looks after installation, maintenance, monitoring and repair works. You merely pay the solar supplier for electrical energy-- less than you would've paid the utility company.
As of 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 well-known for their varying and undependable electrical energy costs. There is plainly an upward trend.
With photovoltaic panels and easy mathematics, we can compute what does it cost? electrical energy will be generated, and most importantly, at what price, for at least the next 20 years (fixed energy expenses).
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
How Do I Build A Mini House Model That Runs On Solar Energy?
I Need To Build A Mini House Model That Uses Solar Energy For A School Project...Does Anyone Know Any Good Links Where I Can Find Information On How To Do It?
You are going to have to look at real houses and scale them down. The model is going to have to be big enough to have space for the items to fit and show how they work. That means space for a photocell panel on the roof, windows on a wall for solar heating of a floor of plaster or stone that can pretend to be cement, and space for a battery and a small lightbulb and fan. With proper design you can use incense smoke to show circulation of warm air without the fan. You will need a white heat lamp (not red) to be the sun.
Battery Rating For 20W Solar Pannel?
If We Want To Install 20W Solar Pannel To My Home Then What Should Be The Ah Rating For 12 V Battery?
Without bogging you down in calculations, if you have a lead-acid battery, the largest you should get is about 20 Amp-hour capacity, maybe 40 Amp-hour at the limit. If your battery is too large, it won't charge right.
Also, not to discourage you, but the energy you get from this kind of system is on the order of what would run a low-power laptop for about an hour, or a performance laptop for a fraction of that.

How Much Does It Take An Aluminum Foil To Bake Cookies With Solar Energy?
Im Doing A Science Project And I Need A Little Help :D
Putting the cookies on a sheet of foil "under the sun" won't get them hot enough to bake.
You have to set up mirrors around them to get as much light to land on them as possible.
And to keep the heat from drifting off the cookies you need to put them in an oven - basically a metal box painted black to absorb heat from the light. The solar heat penetrates the metal box and heats the air inside like an oven, so the temperature will go up.
All these reflectors can be made of aluminum foil glued or taped to cardboard and cut to fit each other in a reflector array. If you made the array in a large dish - shaped like a satellite dish, you can get a lot of light but it's hard to make a large array stand up on its own. It's better to try a rectangular array.
I'M Considering Getting The Type Of Solar System On My Roof Which Feeds Excess Energy Back Into The Grid?
No Batteries, Photovoltaic Panels. Need Feedback - Is It Worth It? What Are The Problems, If Any? Thanks
It's a good idea. The main problem is the cost. Figuring the cost and payback is complex and is completely dependent on exactly where you live.
Whether or not it's "worth it" depends on where you live and what you're trying to accomplish.
If you're just trying to save money, two things are the most important. How much sun you get and how much (if anything) your State will pay you for doing this. There's also some tax deductions possible. As I say, it's complex.
If you're concerned about the environment, then you still want to know how much it will cost, but you'll be less concerned about payback from the cost of putting the system in. It may take a long time for it to pay for itself, though.
Your best bet is to talk to a local solar energy company. They'll show you how the cost, the State payment, if any, and the payback will work. No one can do that unless they know where you live, and other information about you specifically.
