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 air conditioner, washing clothing, watching TELEVISION, cooking supper. All while minimizing your carbon footprint, and without burning fossil fuels or putting a strain on the electrical grid. And while the ecological advantages of solar power are significant, lots of residents discover that the benefit, special functions, and expense savings of owning a solar power system are even more attractive.
Leading Advantages of Solar Energy
#1 Drastically minimize or even eliminate your electrical expenses
Whether you're a house owner, business, or not-for-profit, electricity costs can make up a large part of your regular monthly costs. With a solar panel system, you'll create free power for your system's entire 25+ year lifecycle. Even if you do not produce One Hundred Percent of the energy you consume, solar will lower your utility costs and you'll still save a great deal of cash.

Photovoltaic panels aren't a cost-- they're one of the best methods to invest, with returns measuring up to those of more conventional investments like stocks and bonds. Thanks to considerable electrical power bill savings, the average American property owner pays off their solar panel system in seven to 8 years and sees an ROI of 20 percent or more.
#3 Protect against increasing energy costs
One of the most clear cut benefits of photovoltaic panels is the capability to hedge utility rates. In the past ten years, domestic electrical energy costs have increased by an average of 3 percent yearly. By buying a solar energy system now, you can repair your electrical energy rate and secure versus unpredictable boosts in electrical power costs. If you're a business or homeowner with rising and falling money circulation, going solar also assists you much better projection and manage your costs.
#4 Boost your home or business value
Multiple research studies have found that homes equipped with solar energy systems have higher residential or commercial property worths and sell more rapidly than non-solar houses. Appraisers are progressively taking solar setups into factor to consider as they value houses at the time of a sale, and as property buyers become more educated about solar, need for properties equipped with photovoltaic 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 part of attaining energy self-reliance in the United States. By increasing our capacity to generate electricity from the sun, we can likewise insulate our country from rate variations in international energy markets.
#6 Create jobs and assist your local economy
According to The Solar Foundation, the solar industry added tasks at a rate almost 12 times faster than the total U.S. economy in 2015, representing 1.2 percent of all tasks in the country. This growth is expected to continue. Due to the fact that solar-related tasks have the tendency to be higher paying and can not be outsourced, they are a considerable factor to the U.S. economy.

Solar is a terrific way to minimize your carbon footprint. Buildings are accountable for 38 percent of all carbon emissions in the United States, and going solar can substantially decrease that number.

Solar purchase power contracts (PPAs) and solar leasing has actually made it possible for property owners to go solar for little or no money down.
Numerous homeowners decide to finance their photovoltaic panels with one of the "pay-as-you-go" funding options. This suggests that a third-party business-- the solar service provider-- owns the solar system and takes care of installation, maintenance, monitoring and repairs. You merely pay the solar service provider for electrical energy-- less than you would've paid the utility business.
Since June 2013, 75% of all American houses 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 unreliable electricity costs. There is plainly an upward trend.

Frequently Asked Questions
Solar Panels Save Money Right?
So Why Dont' More Pople Use Them? If They Save You Money In The Long Run, Its Like An Investment, Why Wouldn'T You Spend A Little Now To Save In The Future? Or Is There Some Kind Of Catch With Using These Things That I'M Missing?
"The dollar-per-watt ratio is the best way to compare the prices of solar cells. How does this ratio work? If we assume that a solar array costs $500 and generates 100 Watts, the dollar-per-watt ratio is $5.00 per watt. The current best deals on solar cells is around $4.30 per watt.", here's more info if interested
With My Solar Panels During Winter?
How Do I Keep Ice From Building Up On The Surface, And Snow From Accumulating On Them?
Do not put salt on your solar panels. I would not worry with the clear ice because the panels will heat up and melt it same with snow as long as some part of the panel can get sun light. Mine have been covered many times with snow and I just lightly sweep them off just enough to get some of the black cells to show and in a couple of hours they will be clear on their own.
The colder the solar panels are the better they work. And if you live in a snowy area you might want to do a ground mount so you can go sweep without getting on a roof.
Can A Solar Panel Run Without An Inverter? If So, How Effecient Will It Be And For How Long It Might Run?
Public Electric Is Almost Nonexistent In My Country And With Plenty Of Subshine; Sometimes 10 Hours Or More Per Day, I Am Becoming Freak-Up About Solar Panel. Most People Here Use Generators That Are Very Unstable Subsequently Leading To Destruction Of Property.
Yes. The inverter is used convert DC to AC power. You can connect the solar panel to batteries to store power, but to use the power it will be DC only. So it can power on equipment that uses DC. If you want to power things that normally use AC, then you will need to convert to AC, which requires an inverter.
Storing Solar Energy?
If I Install A 250Wp Solar Panel On My House And I Get 10 Hours Of Peak Sunshine (In Theory), How Would I Store This 2.5Kwh? What Type Of Battery Could I Buy So That I Could Run Lights, Fridge, Tv From The Battery. What Sort Of Amps Or Specs Should I Consider?
I Know I Need An Inverter For Ac/Dc And Other Stuff, But I Just Need To Know About The Battery.
I know you said "in theory," but most of the question is on practical matters, so I'll answer that way.
A 250 watt peak panel is more likely to deliver about 220 watts, given the way the rating system works for panels. Also, peak sunshine is not the number of hours that the sun is out. Even in the summer in California where I live, when the days are 16 hours long, we only get 6 hours peak sun.
Also count on losing 25% of the energy, just in the inefficiencies of charging and discharging a battery.
Lead-acid batteries are the typical choice for cost reasons. This type of battery will be damaged if allowed to discharge too far, so you probably would not connect a fridge to such a small system, only things that are non-critical, and you could turn off at any time. Either that, or you would have a much larger system.
