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 house owners to utilize the sun to power everyday life: running your a/c, cleaning clothing, seeing TELEVISION, cooking supper. All while lowering your carbon footprint, and without burning nonrenewable fuel sources or putting a stress on the electrical grid. And while the ecological advantages of solar power are substantial, numerous homeowners find that the convenience, distinct features, and expense savings of owning a solar power system are much more attractive.
Leading Advantages of Solar Energy
#1 Significantly minimize or even eliminate your electrical expenses
Whether you're a homeowner, organization, or not-for-profit, electrical power costs can make up a big portion of your month-to-month costs. With a photovoltaic panel system, you'll create complimentary power for your system's entire 25+ year lifecycle. Even if you do not produce 100 percent of the energy you consume, solar will minimize your energy bills and you'll still conserve a lot of cash.
#2 Earn an excellent return on your financial investment
Photovoltaic panels aren't a cost-- they're one of the very best ways to invest, with returns equaling those of more standard investments like stocks and bonds. Thanks to significant electricity bill cost savings, the average American homeowner pays off their photovoltaic panel system in 7 to 8 years and sees an ROI of 20 percent or more.
#3 Safeguard versus increasing energy costs
Among the most clear cut benefits of solar panels is the ability to hedge utility rates. In the past 10 years, property electrical energy rates have actually gone up by an average of 3 percent each year. By purchasing a solar energy system now, you can repair your electrical power rate and secure against unforeseeable boosts in electrical energy costs. If you're an organisation or property owner with ever-changing money flow, going solar likewise helps you much better projection and manage your costs.
#4 Increase your home or business value
Multiple research studies have discovered that homes geared up with solar energy systems have higher property values and offer faster than non-solar homes. Appraisers are increasingly taking solar setups into consideration as they value houses at the time of a sale, and as property buyers become more informed about solar, demand for homes geared up with solar panel systems will continue to grow.
#5 Increase U.S. energy self-reliance
The sun is a near-infinite source of energy and an essential component of attaining energy independence in the United States. By increasing our capability to generate electrical power from the sun, we can likewise insulate our country from cost variations in worldwide energy markets.
#6 Develop jobs and assist your local economy
According to The Solar Foundation, the solar market added jobs 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 development is expected to continue. Because solar-related tasks tend to be greater paying and can not be outsourced, they are a considerable factor to the United States economy.
#7 Protect the environment
Solar is a fantastic way to minimize your carbon footprint. Buildings are accountable for 38 percent of all carbon emissions in the United States, and going solar can significantly decrease that number. A typical property solar panel system will get rid of 3 to 4 lots of carbon emissions each year-- the equivalent of planting over 100 trees every year.
#8 Demonstrate your dedication to sustainability
Sustainability and business social responsibility are important elements of a company's culture and values. They likewise produce bottom line results. Significantly, consumers and communities are acknowledging and rewarding services that select to operate responsibly. Businesses are finding that "green" credentials are an effective chauffeur of consumer acquiring decisions, developing goodwill and enhancing organisation results.
#9 Start Conserving from Day 1
Solar purchase power arrangements (PPAs) and solar leasing has actually made it possible for property owners to go solar for little or no money down.
Many property owners select to finance their photovoltaic panels with one of the "pay-as-you-go" financing alternatives. This means that a third-party company-- the solar supplier-- owns the planetary system and takes care of setup, maintenance, monitoring and repairs. You simply pay the solar service provider 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 Financial investment
The utility business are notorious for their changing and undependable electricity costs. There is clearly an upward pattern.
With solar panels and easy mathematics, we can compute just how much electrical energy will be produced, and most notably, at exactly what rate, for at least the next 20 years (repaired energy expenses).

Frequently Asked Questions
Where Does The Initial Energy Come From In A Refrigerator?
I Am Doing A Project, And I Am Stump On One Of My
Questions And It'S Where Does The Initial Energy Come From In A Refrigerator? I Have No Clue, And I Couldn'T Find It Anywhere Online...So Can Someone Me? Thanks! :D
Initial energy comes from electricity, from the wall. The electricity from the wall powers the equipment inside the refrigerator that cools the airs.
However, you could take this very far down the line....
The energy from the wall comes from the power compnay. THe power company might generate the elctricity from nuclear, coal, solar, wind, natural gas, etc... Then you could determine where each of these sources originate. i.e. If it comes from coal then it's a fossil fuel, so it comes from decayed organic matter from many hundreds of thousands of years ago. But even in that case, their energy probalby originated from the sun. You could trace any energy source back to the big bang, but even then you come to the question, where did the energy from the big bang come from. And then you get into science vs. religion and that whole argument. Anyways, this is probably much deeper than you were looking for and if you use this answer in class your teacher will probably know you copied it from the internet.
How Many Solar Panels Does It Take To Run An A/C Unit? Also, How Many Batteries In An Array?
I Was Wondering How Many 700 W Solar Panels It Would Take To Run A Household A/C Unit. Also Curious How Many Batteries It Would Take To Keep A/C Running In Inhospitable Environments. Would A 3500 W Inverter Be Enough If It Were To Run 220 Ac?
Here we are doing the math of two facts to multiply or divide, to find the third, and you don't give enough to make up the equation!
My 2.5 ton unit needs 220 VAC at 5 KW for the heater coils, and 3.5 KW for the cooling and fans, but, in electricity, we are always having to discriminate between inductive loads (transformers, oven coils, heater coils) and other uses, like lncandescent lighting.
To run my HVAC unit, in my 1,000 square foot home, would demand a10KW unit, and the 5200 watt (5500 watt Surge rated)
would not work. A generator simply stalls out under load, possibly smokes the generator electrics, while a solar unit and batteries can reverse potential under severe load, and explode!
The surge rating for my HVAC unit is 3X higher, (the Switching Load), for either heating or cooling. When figuring out the generator load for an emergency generator, for warranty purposes, they demand we install a generator with a 'surge' power rating triple the start-up load of our equipment, and that is the way to try to load your Solar panel, also!
Now, go to the hardware store, and get a booklet or pamphlet about emergency power generation, and look at the descriptions of the generator start up power capabilities for the 'switching loads'!
How Is Solar Energy Produced?
Explain In A Way That The Dumbest Person Ever Would Understand(Me!)
From the sun.
The extreme tempuratures and pressures at the core of the sun cause hydrogen to fuse into helium. The energy from the core takes about 1 million years to reach the surface, where the heat is radiated out into space. The sun has to covert 4,000 tons of matter into energy every second to maintain it's energy output.
In outer space, at the average distance from the sun to the earth, the solar light energy from the sun is about 2,500 watts per square meter.
Solar panels are only about 4% efficient. We can get only about 100 watts per square meter from solar panels in space, where the sun always shines.
On earth, depending where on earth we are, we get much less energy from solar panels.
If we use the solar heat to generate steam we can get even more efficiency.
How Would Solar Federal Tax Credits Benefit The Owner Of A S Corp?
A Business That Puts In A Solar Energy System Is Entitled To A 30% Federal Investment Tax Credit. I Am Not Sure If Or How This Could Benefit Owners Of An S Corp.
I Am Also Wondering The Same About C Corps And Llc'S?
I Was Told That Solar Tax Credits Would Have No Benefit For S Corps And The Like Because They Typically Do Not Pay Any Corp Income Tax. I Am Not Sure If This Is True.
Thanks For Any Help With This.
This credit would benefit the owners of an S corp on their personal returns as their share of the credit would be passed to them on the Schedule K-1 that they would receive from the S corp.
In the case of a C corp, it would be a credit against their tax liability just like any credit.
As far as an LLC, the question doesn't make sense since the term LLC is an adjective describing the company - it is not a form of business in itself. In other words, and LLC could be a sole propriatorship, a partnership, an S Corp, or even a C Corp.
In a nutshell, this credit, like all credits, would benefit whoever pays the taxes of the business - the C corp itself, or the owner(s) or the sole proprietorship or partnership or S corp.
How Many Years Will It Be Before We Use Solar Energy Instead Of Fossil Fuels ?
People have already been using solar for decades.
Google, for instance, just covered the rooftops of their headquarters with solar panels last year. They figure this will cut the electric bill of those buildings by about 20%.
The big problem with solar is that the equipment is expensive, which makes the return on investment (ROI) quite long. For instance, you can get a similar installation of solar panels on your roof like Google. Even with state and national rebates to help encourage alternative energy, a typical installation will cost you about $10,000-15,000 up front. Granted, your electricity bill should be $0, but this still means most families won't see a profit from their solar system for about 10 to 12 years. The main problem is the solar panels themselves. They just aren't very efficient, so you need a lot of them to produce any decent amount of power.
Scientists are hard at work at creating more efficient and cheaper solar panels.
Meanwhile, other countries are offering very lucrative incentives for people to generate solar power. For instance in Germany, many of the roads that make up the Autobahn are now lined with solar panels. Even farmers are dedicating a field or two to solar energy because they can make more money from that than from a crop of grain.
There's no reason why the US can't do the same thing, other than the fact that our current president is a former oilman. Hm...
