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 a/c, washing clothing, seeing TELEVISION, cooking supper. All while reducing 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, lots of residents find that the benefit, unique functions, and expense savings of owning a solar power system are much more enticing.
Top 10 Benefits of Solar Energy
#1 Significantly decrease or perhaps eliminate your electrical costs
Whether you're a property owner, business, or nonprofit, electricity costs can comprise a large part of your month-to-month costs. With a solar panel system, you'll produce free power for your system's entire 25+ year lifecycle. Even if you do not produce 100 percent of the energy you take in, solar will minimize your energy bills and you'll still save a great deal of cash.
#2 Earn a terrific return on your investment
Photovoltaic panels aren't a cost-- they are among the finest methods to invest, with returns rivaling those of more traditional investments like stocks and bonds. Thanks to significant electrical energy expense cost savings, the average American property owner pays off their solar panel system in 7 to 8 years and sees an ROI of 20 percent or more.
#3 Protect against rising energy expenses
One of the most clear cut benefits of solar panels is the ability to hedge energy costs. In the past 10 years, residential electrical power prices have increased by approximately three percent every year. By investing in a solar energy system now, you can fix your electrical power rate and safeguard against unforeseeable boosts in electricity expenses. If you're a service or homeowner with rising and falling cash flow, going solar likewise helps you much better projection and manage your expenditures.
#4 Increase your home worth
Multiple research studies have actually found that homes geared up with solar energy systems have greater property worths and offer more rapidly than non-solar houses. Appraisers are significantly taking solar setups into factor to consider as they value homes at the time of a sale, and as homebuyers become more informed about solar, demand for properties equipped 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 a crucial part of accomplishing energy self-reliance in the United States. By increasing our capacity to generate electrical energy from the sun, we can likewise insulate our country from cost fluctuations in global energy markets.
#6 Create jobs and assist your regional economy
Inning accordance with The Solar Foundation, the solar market added tasks at a rate almost 12 times faster than the general U.S. economy in 2015, representing 1.2 percent of all jobs in the country. This growth is anticipated to continue. Because solar-related jobs have the tendency to be greater paying and can not be contracted out, they are a substantial factor to the United States economy.
#7 Secure the environment
Solar is an excellent method 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 common domestic solar panel system will remove 3 to 4 lots of carbon emissions each year-- the equivalent of planting over 100 trees each year.
#8 Show your commitment to sustainability
Sustainability and business social obligation are necessary parts of a company's culture and worths. They likewise produce bottom line outcomes. Progressively, consumers and neighborhoods are acknowledging and rewarding businesses that opt to operate responsibly. Companies are finding that "green" credentials are a powerful driver of consumer getting decisions, producing goodwill and enhancing service outcomes.
#9 Start Saving from Day 1
Solar purchase power arrangements (PPAs) and solar leasing has made it possible for house owners to go solar for little or no money down.
Many homeowners opt to finance their photovoltaic panels with one of the "pay-as-you-go" financing choices. This indicates that a third-party company-- the solar service provider-- owns the planetary system and looks after installation, upkeep, tracking and repairs. You simply pay the solar provider for electricity-- less than you would've paid the energy business.
As of June 2013, 75% of all American homes have access to pay-as-you-go solar.
#10. Solar is a Secure Investment
The utility business are infamous for their fluctuating and undependable electrical power rates. There is clearly an upward trend.
With photovoltaic panels and basic math, we can compute what does it cost? electricity will be generated, and most notably, at exactly what cost, for at least the next 20 years (repaired energy expenses).

Frequently Asked Questions
How Can We Take This Global Warming Advocate Seriously?
Al Gore Has Added A 100 Foot Houseboat To His Personal Collection Of Stuff. He Gave It A Green Name, But Do We Really Believe That It's Carbon Neutral? Shouldn't He Be Setting An Example Of Austerity If He Wants Everyone Else To Cut Back On Their Energy Consumption?
The truth is no one takes him serious, including himself.
It's funny, but even when he added the solar panels the amount of energy he uses each month went up instead of down.
Now he uses about 30 times the average. What a hog.
I'm just glad he's not too concerned about global warming. It's good when the guy who makes the most from the hoax doesn't believe in it either.
We can all be relieved that it is now a certified scam.
Are There Solar Panels On The Market Over 22 Percent Efficentcy?
Are There Any Solar Panels I Can Buy Online With Efficiency Over 22 Percent?
No, that is the maximum reached in commercial panels (and that is even very high, most are 16 - 18 %), silicone based solar panels have a maximum of 30 % (that has to do with the crystalline structure) and they are slowly getting there.
There are panels used by NASA with other materials on satellites and space probes but they are extremely expensive.
They work on other concepts: organic materials, sandwich panels but it seems they are years into the future.
I Want To Run 350 Watts 20 Hours A Day And Use Easy To Use Solar Panels That Come With A Box That You Can Just Directly Plug Any 3 Prong Cable Into. How Much Might That Cost And What Do I Need? Really Id Like To Do 500Watts 20 Hours A Day But For Right Now Maybe 350 Or Even 300 Would Be More Cost Effective.
The plug in solar is a gray area and only one leg of the 240 VAC output of the grid tied inverter is plugged into the wall outlet. You basically only get half the power you paid for.
The energy in 350 watts for 20 hours a day is 7,000 watt hours. You have about six hours a day insolation in the southern US states so it would take 1,166 watts to generate that energy per day. A household wall outlet can handle 1,800 watts at best but as the very questionable plug in products only use one leg of their inverters, you'll probably haave to buy twice that capacity.
Would Solar Panels On The Roof Be Damaged?
What About Snow?
Solar panels are pretty durable pieces. Most panels I've worked with come with a 25 year manufacturers warranty so you shouldn't be worried as much about damage than keeping them clean. After it snows you should any frost coating off the panels as it may interfere with the efficiency of the panels. Only extreme weather conditions would damage the panels. Since they're purpose is to be outdoors, they're built to last.
Can I Couple My Electric Air Conditioner With Solar Panel Without Using A Inverter?
Energy from a solar panel is direct current (DC), typically 12 to 48 volts. Conversely, most air conditioning equipment uses alternating current (AC). I suppose you could find air conditioning equipment that runs on DC. Hunt around! They are made specifically for trucks and other vehicles. You'll need to analyze whether you want to buy all new air-conditioning equipment, or just go ahead and get an inverter.
