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 system, washing clothes, seeing 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, many property owners find that the benefit, unique functions, and cost savings of owning a solar power system are much more enticing.
Top Ten Benefits of Solar Energy
#1 Dramatically reduce or perhaps eliminate your electric bills
Whether you're a house owner, service, or not-for-profit, electrical power costs can comprise a large part of your month-to-month expenses. With a photovoltaic panel system, you'll produce totally free power for your system's entire 25+ year lifecycle. Even if you do not produce One Hundred Percent of the energy you take in, solar will reduce your utility costs and you'll still conserve a great deal of cash.
#2 Earn a great return on your financial investment
Photovoltaic panels aren't an expenditure-- they are among the very best methods to invest, with returns rivaling those of more conventional investments like stocks and bonds. Thanks to substantial electrical power bill cost savings, the typical American house owner pays off their solar panel system in seven to 8 years and sees an ROI of 20 percent or more.
#3 Secure versus increasing energy costs
One of the most clear cut benefits of photovoltaic panels is the capability to hedge utility prices. In the previous 10 years, property electrical energy costs have actually gone up by an average of three percent yearly. By investing in a solar energy system now, you can repair your electricity rate and protect against unpredictable boosts in electrical power costs. If you're a company or homeowner with changing capital, going solar likewise assists you much better forecast and manage your costs.
#4 Boost your home value
Multiple studies have found that homes geared up with solar energy systems have greater property values and offer faster than non-solar homes. Appraisers are progressively taking solar setups into factor to consider as they value homes at the time of a sale, and as property buyers become more educated about solar, demand for residential or commercial 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 key component of attaining energy independence in the United States. By increasing our capability to produce electricity from the sun, we can also insulate our country from cost variations in international energy markets.
#6 Develop jobs and help your regional economy
Inning accordance with The Solar Foundation, the solar industry added tasks at a rate almost 12 times faster than the overall U.S. economy in 2015, representing 1.2 percent of all jobs in the country. This growth is anticipated to continue. Since solar-related jobs have the tendency to be greater paying and can not be outsourced, they are a considerable contributor to the United States economy.
#7 Secure the environment
Solar is a terrific way to minimize your carbon footprint. Structures are accountable for 38 percent of all carbon emissions in the United States, and going solar can considerably reduce that number. A typical property solar panel system will remove 3 to four heaps of carbon emissions each year-- the equivalent of planting over 100 trees every year.
#8 Show your commitment to sustainability
Sustainability and business social obligation are necessary elements of a company's culture and values. They also produce bottom line outcomes. Progressively, consumers and neighborhoods are acknowledging and rewarding organisations that decide to run properly. Services are discovering that "green" qualifications are a powerful chauffeur of customer buying choices, creating goodwill and improving organisation results.
#9 Start Saving from Day 1
Solar purchase power agreements (PPAs) and solar leasing has made it possible for homeowners to go solar for little or no loan down.
Lots of homeowners decide to finance their solar panels with among the "pay-as-you-go" funding options. This implies that a third-party company-- the solar service provider-- owns the solar system and takes care of installation, maintenance, monitoring and repairs. You merely pay the solar provider for electrical power-- 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 business are infamous for their varying and unreliable electricity costs. There is plainly an upward trend.
With photovoltaic panels and easy math, we can calculate how much electrical power will be generated, and most notably, at exactly what rate, for at least the next 20 years (repaired energy costs).

Frequently Asked Questions
What Is The Best Way To Purchase Used Solar Panels By Container Load?
I Have A Friend From Bulgaria ( Europe ) Who Would Like To Buy A 20 Ft Container Of Used Solar Panls
I've got 10 used collectors on my roof. They are occasionally available from company's selling solar equipment or scrap yards.
Many collectors became available when the tax rebates from the Carter era ended and the systems required more upkeep and expense than the owners were willing to provide. Mine came from a school.
Most recently I came across a large group of used panel at this web site. Note that this was some time ago and I have no idea if they still have them or they were salvaged as scrap copper.
Other things to think about are that used collectors may be damaged. They may leak or may have been neglected and had their antifreeze become very acidic which can corrode the units (just things to think about).
How Does Solar Energy Work?
How Does The Solar Panels Energy Transmit To A House... Ect
solar pannels have solar cell which are semiconductors, when light fall on it acts as a tranducer converting light to electricity.
a groups of such cell connected together is called solar pannel.
this is similar to a battery.
How To Increase Current To Charge Battery Faster? 80 Watt Solar Panel?
I Have 80 Watt Solar Panel, Solar Control And Two Batteries. A Marine Deep Cycle Battery And Car Battery. Am Test How Long Does It Take To Charge The Batteries Completely. Im On Day Two And Still Nothing. Is There A Way I Can Charge The Batteries Fast? Do I Need To Increase The Current? The Solar Panels Are Connected In Series.
12-volt panels actually put out 14 to 17 volts which is necessary to charge a 12-volt battery. If you are using 12-volt panels and 12-volt batteries, the panels should NOT be in series unless the batteries are also in series and the charge controller is rated at 24 volts. Two non-similar batteries in series may not work well together.
Power (watts) = amps X volts, so an 80 watt 12-volt panel puts out 80/12=6.67 amps which should charge a battery overnight.
Why Is Efficiency Less Important For A Wind Turbine?
Hey Z, I would have to agree with Chris, less important than what? Wind turbines have a maximum theoretical efficiency of 59.6%. This was discovered by Albert Betz, it's called the Betz Limit. Most modern turbines operate at about 35% efficient, so about 1/3 of the energy of the moving column of air flowing through the turbines swept area is converted to usable torque, or electricity. Let's compare it to other modern technologies: Gasoline car engines, 25%. Incandescent light bulbs, 4%. Compact Flourescent lights (CF), 23%. Diesel engines, 34%. Solar panels, 12%. The thing is, with a turbine, if you want to build one that produces a maximum rated power of 1000 watts, like ours, you just work out the engineering so it produces that power in a good wind. With a car, or light bulb, we have to add more energy to overcome the losses. The only thing that is wasted in a turbine is airspace.
We don't really have any way to increase turbines past about 45% right now, there are a few experimental ones that get up there, but they don't work well in high winds or turbulent winds, so most manufacturers use three bladed models, which are a little less efficient, and then just make the blades longer to make up for the loss in efficiency. In the end it makes what power is expected of it. Solar panels are similar in this way. We could make a solar panel that is twice as efficient as the ones we have now, and they could make the same power in half the roof space, but they would cost more per unit power, there are some out there now in the low 20's. In the end you would have an array that makes the same power, but costs twice as much, so nobody buys those panels, they use the existing technology, same as we do here. It doesn't really matter much, our array runs our entire home, and it uses less than 1/5 th of the available roof space on our garage, a more expensive, more efficient array would cost more and use less roof space, which would accomplish nothing more than reducing our cash position. Efficiency is important if you're feeding a device something in exchange for getting something else in return, like a car, or an investment. But the wind and the sun are free, and there is plenty of square footage, and airspace to produce all of our grid power from it if we wanted, so no, it isn't very crucial. Take care Z, Rudydoo
Why Should We Use Solar Energy?
Why Should We Use Solar Energy
Because solar energy is renewable. Gas and oil burn up quickly, and we have to find more stores in the earth. They will eventually run out. But the sun will still be in the sky for billions of years. Solar panels capture the sun's light and passively make electricity. There are no moving parts. Solar panels last for over 40 years and supply a home with all the electricity it needs.
Plus, current state and federal incentives make solar energy very affordable. After the initial investment, you could be powering your home for free with sunlight!
