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 resident to use the sun to power everyday life: running your air conditioning unit, washing clothing, viewing TV, cooking supper. All while decreasing your carbon footprint, and without burning nonrenewable fuel sources or putting a stress on the electrical grid. And while the environmental advantages of solar power are significant, numerous property owners find that the convenience, distinct functions, and expense savings of owning a solar power system are a lot more alluring.
Top 10 Benefits of Solar Energy

#2 Earn a fantastic return on your investment
Solar panels aren't a cost-- they're one of the very best methods to invest, with returns rivaling those of more standard investments like stocks and bonds. Thanks to considerable electricity bill cost savings, the average American house owner pays off their solar panel system in 7 to eight years and sees an ROI of 20 percent or more.
#3 Safeguard against increasing energy expenses
One of the most clear cut benefits of photovoltaic panels is the capability to hedge energy costs. In the previous 10 years, domestic electrical power rates have actually increased by approximately three percent every year. By purchasing a solar energy system now, you can repair your electricity rate and safeguard against unpredictable increases in electricity expenses. If you're a service or homeowner with ever-changing cash flow, going solar likewise assists you better projection and handle your expenditures.

Several 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 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, need for residential or commercial properties equipped with solar panel systems will continue to grow.
#5 Boost 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 generate electricity from the sun, we can likewise insulate our country from rate changes in worldwide energy markets.
#6 Create jobs and assist your local economy
According to The Solar Structure, the solar market included tasks at a rate almost 12 times faster than the overall 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 tasks have the tendency to be higher paying and can not be outsourced, they are a considerable contributor to the U.S. economy.

Increasingly, consumers and neighborhoods are acknowledging and rewarding companies that decide to operate responsibly. Businesses are discovering that "green" credentials are a powerful driver of customer buying decisions, creating goodwill and improving business outcomes.
#9 Start Saving from Day 1
Solar purchase power agreements (PPAs) and solar leasing has actually made it possible for homeowners to go solar for little or no money down.
Numerous house owners opt to finance their photovoltaic panels with among the "pay-as-you-go" financing choices. This implies that a third-party business-- the solar company-- owns the planetary system and looks after installation, upkeep, tracking and repair works. You simply pay the solar service provider for electrical power-- less than you would've paid the utility business.
As of 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 infamous for their varying and undependable electrical energy prices. There is plainly an upward trend.
With photovoltaic panels and simple mathematics, we can determine just how much electrical power will be created, and most importantly, at what price, for a minimum of the next 20 years (repaired energy costs).

Frequently Asked Questions
Solar Panels (Sun Enerjy)?
I Have A Question About Solar Panels. What Are The Benefits Of This System If I Installed In My Home. For Example I Know It Produces Electricity But Does It Do Anything Else? How Many Panel Would You Guys Think I Would Need For 2000 Sq Ft. Do You Know If It Produces Hot Water?
Thanks For Your Help
First, solar panels come in two basic types - photovoltaics, which produce electricity (the black cells you normally think of), and solar thermal, which heats water (or some other fluid). It's one or the other, you could install both if you want that. Solar thermal is cost effective today, depending on how you currently heat your water. (The hot water could also be used to create electricity, like in a steam turbine, generally done in larger power plants).
Photovoltaics are more expensive, but coming down in price every day. To know how many panels you need, you first have to determine how many kWH your house uses, and do you want to be completely off the grid (which would also require large batteries), or just reduce your electric bill.
How Much Does It Cost To Put Solar Panels On A House? ?
I Want To Be More Green And If I Get The Panels Will I Still Have A Regular Electric Bill?
Yes, and no.
My cottage is primarily solar powered. However, we're only there on weekends, and we're only powering a small fridge (the biggest power draw, by far), televisions, stereos, lights, a water pump, and that kind of thing. For the more powerful items (vacuum cleaner, air conditioner, power tools, washer and dryer) we use a gasoline generator. Our water heater and stove are propane.
We have an array of seven solar panels, and two battery banks.
Obviously, we don't have utility bills for our cottage.
We will soon replace the solar panels with more efficient ones. Currently, there are 85W panels on sale for $500 CAD. We will buy as many of those as we can afford. We recently had to replace one battery bank.
At home, we currently have a geothermal heating/cooling system. That cuts our energy use for heating and cooling quite a bit. That's reflected on our utility bill. (Because we're not in the city, we have our own well, plus a septic tank. So, our only utility bill is for electric.)
My husband and I have discussed it many times and, based on our experience with our cottage, we don't think we'll try to do a "whole home" solar system.
Typical estimates for panels, batteries, inverters, etc., to run a typical city home are in the $17,000 range. But with our cottage experience, we know that the real monkey wrench with solar power is STORING that power. And we've had more battery problems than we anticipated. Once the batteries are no longer holding charge well, they have to be replaced...and they're expensive....and heavy...and have to be disposed of as hazardous waste. Our cheapest batteries are probably $200 each. We also use more expensive / bigger 6V batteries. We may even, one day, switch to the huge, very expensive 2Vs.
In any event, I find that the best way (for us) to incorporate solar power into our urban home will likely be panels which will provide power when the sun is shining, but still be on the grid for night time, bad weather, and times of excess power use. That will eliminate the expense and problems of batteries and power storage (and limiting power use, so as not to run down the batteries).
In some places, the excess power you create with solar panels can be put back into the grid, and the local power utility company will pay you for it.
So, for me, based on my experience, that's what I think I'd do, when it comes time to outfit our home with solar panels. Using only solar power for the bulk of our living at the cottage is great, but we do have to be mindful of how much we're using. Once the stored power drops below a certain point, the inverters won't work, and you have to either go without power, or turn on the gas generator. I wouldn't want that hassle at home.
Why Should I Use Solar Panels?
Why Is It Nessicary, With Today's Economy In The Postion It's Currently In, To Use Renewable Energy Sources; Like Solar Panels?
Using solar panels and a converter system will reduce your electric bill, more panels +more reduction down to 0.00, even more and the power company has to pay you for your excess at premium prices. It's the law.It's not necessary but but useful.
Is Investing In Silver A Good Choice?
I Have A Settlement Coming To Me Soon And Am Considering Buying Silver, I Think Over The Next Ten To Twenty Years The Price Should Go Up Substantially Am I Wrong?
Silver is the greatest investment ever in my opinion.
The ongoing collapse of the USA dollar and economy is the reason why. You can not print phantom money out of thin air and expect to have a recovery. The real unemployment rate is 17.2% now and this will keep going higher as we move into the next stage of the economic collapse which is that of the commercial real estate sector.
Short term food and water should be better than silver, but I see silver great in the next couple years when bread is $99 a loaf and silver is well over a few hundred per oz. This will help keep the purchasing power as our fiat dollars which will have no value soon as the currencies destruct.
Gold i am unsure of for the reasons that "Why is it so good? Why is it money?" I can not answer those questions, but with silver the uses are high and the probability odds that solar panels will take off with newer cleaner energy are massive. This is why I love Silver.
The smartest thing is to get out of fiat dollars before it is too late. It is very clear to see that those whom are still brainwashed by the media and the powers that be in control have no clue to what is going on the economy and they will be rushing to real money and assets when TSHTF.
Its About Solar Panels?
We Are Thinking About Useing Solar Panels For Our House.Does Anyone Know About Solar Panels? If So Could You Please Tell Me Some Information On Them,And The Cost For A Home,To Install Them.
If solar power is not practical, why do four of my friends and I have it?
Actually Don M is mostly right. The factors to consider when contemplating a solar installation are numerous. For example my system will not pay for itself in utility savings in my lifetime, but I plan to sell the house soon. What I am saving on electricity costs, and the increased amount I can ask a buyer, I will come out well ahead.
