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 daily life: running your air conditioning unit, washing clothes, seeing TV, cooking dinner. All while minimizing 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 substantial, many home owners find that the benefit, distinct features, and cost savings of owning a solar power system are even more attractive.
Top Ten Advantages of Solar Energy
#1 Dramatically reduce or perhaps eliminate your electrical costs
Whether you're a property owner, business, or not-for-profit, electrical energy expenses can comprise a large portion of your regular monthly expenditures. With a solar panel system, you'll produce complimentary 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 decrease your energy costs and you'll still save a great deal of cash.
#2 Make an excellent return on your financial investment
Photovoltaic panels aren't an expense-- they're one of the very best methods to invest, with returns equaling those of more standard investments like stocks and bonds. Thanks to significant electricity bill savings, the typical American house owner settles their solar panel system in seven to eight years and sees an ROI of 20 percent or more.
#3 Secure against rising energy expenses
One of the most clear cut advantages of photovoltaic panels is the capability to hedge utility costs. In the past 10 years, residential electrical energy prices have increased by approximately 3 percent every year. By buying a solar energy system now, you can fix your electricity rate and protect against unpredictable increases in electricity expenses. If you're an organisation or homeowner with changing capital, going solar likewise assists you much better projection and handle your costs.
#4 Boost your house worth
Multiple research studies have discovered that houses equipped with solar energy systems have higher property worths and offer more quickly than non-solar homes. Appraisers are progressively taking solar installations into consideration as they value homes at the time of a sale, and as property buyers become more informed about solar, need for residential or commercial properties equipped with photovoltaic panel systems will continue to grow.
#5 Increase U.S. energy independence
The sun is a near-infinite source of energy and an essential part of attaining energy independence in the United States. By increasing our capacity to produce electrical power from the sun, we can also insulate our country from price variations in international energy markets.
#6 Create jobs and assist your regional economy
Inning accordance with The Solar Structure, the solar market added jobs at a rate almost 12 times faster than the overall U.S. economy in 2015, representing 1.2 percent of all jobs in the nation. This development is expected to continue. Due to the fact that solar-related tasks tend to be greater paying and can not be contracted out, they are a substantial contributor to the U.S. economy.
#7 Safeguard the environment
Solar is a terrific way to minimize your carbon footprint. Buildings are accountable for 38 percent of all carbon emissions in the U.S., and going solar can considerably reduce that number. A normal domestic photovoltaic panel system will eliminate three to 4 heaps of carbon emissions each year-- the equivalent of planting over 100 trees each year.
#8 Demonstrate your dedication to sustainability
Sustainability and corporate social duty are essential elements of an organization's culture and worths. They likewise produce bottom line results. Significantly, consumers and neighborhoods are acknowledging and rewarding companies that pick to run properly. Businesses are finding that "green" credentials are a powerful chauffeur of customer purchasing choices, developing goodwill and improving company results.
#9 Start Conserving from Day 1
Solar purchase power contracts (PPAs) and solar leasing has made it possible for homeowners to go solar for little or no loan down.
Numerous house owners select to fund their photovoltaic panels with among the "pay-as-you-go" financing alternatives. This indicates that a third-party business-- the solar supplier-- owns the solar system and looks after setup, upkeep, tracking and repairs. You simply pay the solar company 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 energy companies are infamous for their changing and undependable electricity prices. There is clearly an upward pattern.
With photovoltaic panels and easy mathematics, we can calculate how much electricity will be generated, and most significantly, at exactly what price, for at least the next Twenty Years (fixed energy costs).

Frequently Asked Questions
Buying Solar Panels...?
I Want To Purchase Some Or One Solar Panel For My Home. I Don'T Know Where To Buy Them From. I'Ve Loooked Online And If I Could Buy Them Online That Would Be Best, But If You Knew Of A Website That Has Good Prices Than That Would Be Great!
Are you aware of the complications that go along with installing a solar system? A solar panel might put out about 100 watts at 24 volts DC. What would you use it for. The typical solar system has a lot of panels connected in series. The output is connected to an inverter to make 120-240 volts AC. This is connected to the power grid if it is to be used. Also if it is felt that the system should provide power during an electrical outage, there will be batteries. How big would you wan it to be? Mine has forty panels with two inverters. It supplies all the electricity for the house, with some left over to supplement my gas heat.

Which The Government Is Always Talking About Fair For Everyone...Which I Say To Hell With The Super Rich As The Majority Of Population Is Not Rich And Nor Do Lot Of Them Care To Be Really Rich And So Their Standards Of Living Are In The Dumps Because Of The Illogical Approach To Deal With Out Of Control Capitalism (The Rich Certainly Didnt Lose Any Money During The War And They Even Made More, But The Normal Guy Like Me Loses Greatly As The Standards Of Living Go To Hell, And The Governemnt Even Asks For More For The State Land Tax, Which Is Amazing That I Have To Get Money Somehow To Pay Them, When I Could Perfectly Well Live With No Need For Money And Live Self Sufficient Which The Governemnt Is Scared Of People To Do)

I did not read through your entire rant, but yes- taking anything that is not yours from anyone without their permission is stealing.
There are people out there who have less than you- would that make it acceptable for them to take money/things from you? I assure you, your standard of living is better than some- you obviously have internet access. Some people do not have shelter, clothing, food, etc.
Instead of thinking that wealth should be redistributed, spend the kind of time and energy you wasted on this post making a plan to get you to the quality of life you desire.
A million dollars, by the way, is NOT a lot of money. 15-30,000 would definitely NOT get you a nice plot of land, pond, garden, solar panel, log cabin with basement, water well, chickens and goats, moped, used truck, etc. I personally live on ten acres of land. My husband paid $30,000 for it- 20 years ago. Real estate value has increased since, and our land is worth about ten times that much. It would cost atleast $4000 to dig a pond (renting the equipment, if you had the knowhow to operate it you could save on having an operator, transportation to/from your site for the equipment, fuel and insurance for the equipment, etc.). It costs money to have a garden, as well- money for the tools you need to tend to the garden, money for the seeds, money to preserve the produce... Solar panels are VERY expensive, for the record. A log cabin- atleast $15,000 for the smallest but add more if you want a basement. Well? Those costs about $10,000. Chickens? You are going to spend about $2 each if you get them as chicks, and do not forget the cost for housing them, medicating them, feeding them, etc. The same thing for goats. Moped? Atleast a couple of thousand. Used truck? Atleast a couple of thousand. Then add in the permits you need for all of this, the sales taxes and property taxes, the insurance required for home and vehicles, gas for your vehicles. Need I go on? Your rant is entirely irrational.
Now, lets say a person was given a million dollars at birth. The life expectancy is currently what, 80 years? That is 12,500 a year. The health and life insurance on my family costs twice that much annually! Never mind shelter, food, clothing, utilities, education expenses, medical expenses and any "extras".
If you think your idea is a good one, move to a communist country. I hear it has worked out very well in Cuba (note the sarcasm).
What Is The Best Way To Heat My Pool? Solar Panels?
This is not an easy answer. It depends on a lot of things.
How much sun you get on an average day?
What temperature are you looking to heat the pool to?
What is your average temperature in the summer without a heater?
How far is the pool from the filter system, and how far is your house from the pool & Equiptment.
What size is your pool and what size pump is on it.
Depending on your answers to these questions, your solution may vary.
Solar heaters can be bought very easily and are not terribly expensive,but their can be drawbacks. Installation can be expensive, generally they have limitations to the temps they can heat to, they are limited by the amount of sun you get, and if they are not installed properly they will not heat the pool at all, and could even lower the temp of the pool. The biggest benefit is that once the system has been bought and installed there is no ongoing fuel cost. So eventually they will pay for themselves and then some. One other potential issue is that depending on the size of your pool pump in relation to the size of your pool and the potential location for your solar heater, it may be necessary to purchase a pump of a larger horsepower and water flow. This would add increased cost to the project.
Fossil fuel heaters (Gas or Propane) are more expensive than solar and have ongoing costs for operation, but can provide you with benefits that no other heater can. They can heater to higher temps (Usually limited to the heaters thermostat), and they will heat the pool much faster than any type of heater. (depending on the desired temp and the starting temp, they can heat in as little as an hour to 8 hours if properly sized to your pool) Again the biggest drawback to this is the initial cost (depending on size $900 - $2,500) and the on-going bill for the fuel. Same as the heater in your house
Heat Pumps - These are the most energy efficient heaters available. The drawbacks to these are the initial cost (Much higher than the other types, anywhere from $2,500 - $3,700) and the heating time. These heaters are designed to be a constant heater and build the heat up slowly over the course of a few days to a week depending on the pools current temp and the desired temp. The big benefit to these though is they will cost you way less than any fossil fuel heater you can find and again the energy efficiency usually pays for the heater over time. The only other issue is these heaters generally don't work well when the outside air temps are below 50 degrees. Most times this is not much of an issue as most people are not swimming when it is that cold out.
Regardless of what type of heater you put on the pool, you should also invest in a solar cover or blanket. Anytime the outside air temperature is lower than your pool water temperature, the pool should be covered. Otherwise all the heat that is being put into it will just evaporate out of it. (As you see the steam rise from the pool, you should envision your dollars going with it)
The best thing to do would be to find a good pool dealer in your area and go and talk to them. I would suggest talking to a few different pool professionals to see what they recommend for your area. Just remember that different people will have their own personal preferences, and some people will be motivated by the money they could make by selling you one type over the other. Try to find someone who sells all three types as they will be less likely to try to pressure you into something.
So Now That China Is Aggressively Manufacturing And Subsidizing Solar Panels At Much Lower Prices?
Where Are All The Green Jobs Going To Be
China Is Positioning Itself To Be The Global Leader Of Green Energy Equipment By Printing Money Out Of Thin Air And Using That Money To Subsidize Production Of Solar Panels
If you believe in green jobs, then put your money where your mouth is. Go buy their products or their stock. Nobody is stopping you, and you are free to convince as many people as you can to follow your example.
Liberty is great, it means you can do what you want, and use your money to back what you believe in. However, liberty also means that I have the same right, and I can choose not to support the things you do. Using my tax dollars to subsidize something you believe in is a heinous violation of my rights. China does not care about rights or liberty, Americans do (at least some of us). Nobody is stopping you from reaching in your pocket and subsidizing any industry you want. But reaching into MY pocket just makes you a thief.
