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 use the sun to power daily life: running your air conditioning unit, washing clothes, watching TELEVISION, cooking supper. All while reducing your carbon footprint, and without burning fossil fuels or putting a strain on the electrical grid. And while the ecological benefits of solar power are significant, numerous home owners find that the benefit, unique functions, and cost savings of owning a solar power system are much more enticing.
Top Ten Advantages of Solar Energy
#1 Considerably decrease or even eliminate your electric costs
Whether you're a homeowner, business, or nonprofit, electricity expenses can comprise a big part of your month-to-month costs. With a solar panel system, you'll create totally free power for your system's whole 25+ year lifecycle. Even if you do not produce One Hundred Percent of the energy you consume, solar will lower your energy expenses and you'll still conserve a great deal of loan.
#2 Make an excellent return on your financial investment
Solar panels aren't an expense-- they're one of the very best methods to invest, with returns measuring up to those of more standard investments like stocks and bonds. Thanks to considerable electrical energy costs 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 Safeguard against rising energy expenses
One of the most clear cut advantages of photovoltaic panels is the ability to hedge utility costs. In the past 10 years, domestic electricity prices have increased by an average of 3 percent yearly. By buying a solar energy system now, you can fix your electrical power rate and secure against unpredictable boosts in electrical energy costs. If you're a business or homeowner with changing capital, going solar likewise assists you much better forecast and manage your expenditures.
#4 Boost your home or business value
Numerous studies have discovered that homes geared up with solar energy systems have greater home values and offer quicker than non-solar homes.

#9 Start Saving 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 loan down.
Many homeowners select to finance their photovoltaic panels with among the "pay-as-you-go" funding options. This means that a third-party company-- the solar service provider-- owns the solar system and takes care of installation, upkeep, monitoring and repairs. You simply pay the solar company for electricity-- less than you would've paid the utility 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 companies are notorious for their fluctuating and undependable electrical power prices. There is plainly an upward trend.
With photovoltaic panels and easy mathematics, we can compute how much electrical power will be created, and most notably, at exactly what price, for at least the next 20 years (repaired energy expenses).

Solar Panels Are Expensive Should I Get Them?
Getting solar panels may be an investment, but it will save you many times more what you paid for it. You could also get a lease which costs you nothing up front. There are many online tools which can tell you how much you would need to spend and how much you would save.
Can I Run A Desktop Computer With A Solar Panel?
I Am Moving To Hawaii And The House We Are Living In Has Independent Electricity. (Solar Panels And Gas Powered Generators.)
The system in the Hawaiian house has solar panels that charge a battery bank. If the sun doesn't shine enough, the generator will kick on and provide the extra power needed. An inverter converts the DC voltage stored in the batteries to AC power that you plug into a wall outlet to use. Depending on the inverter, it should be exactly the same as the AC you buy from the electric company now, so anything that you currently plug in to use will work.
The exception is if they are using an inexpensive modified sine wave inverter, that doesn't generate as clean power as a pure sine wave inverter. Some delicate electronics may have trouble running on it. You may want to ask the house owners which type of inverter it is. If they don't know, ask them the model and you can easily look it up.
Can I Power Converter On Solar Pannels Without Battery?
I Have An 200 Watts Dc To Ac Inverter I Have No Battery For It But I Have 2 Solar Pannels Of Each 6 Volts I Will On Them At Sunlight And At Evening I Will Off It Will It Work For Converter To Use It Without Any Problems
Its a likely improbability that this will work as solar panels are rarely direct use in domestic installations as they are generally low current output. Also the inverter would only work in daylight hours. You need a battery or batteries for this application and you will need to calculate the Ampere hour rating required for this load. If you intend running the inverter for long periods its unlikely the solar panels will be able to keep up sufficient charge. The Ampere output of the solar panels is a bit of information you need.
Whats A Good Store To Buy A Solar Panel To Charge 6 Car Batteries.?
I Also Dont Know What Size I Need To Charge Them.
You can find a wide selection of solar panels for sale here.
The size of the solar panel will be determined by a few factors. The key factors will be the capacity of the battery bank (in Amp Hours), how quickly you want the solar panels to recharge your batteries, and also what your solar resources are. There are a lot of informative articles on these subjects here.
You can still use batteries to store your energy produced by the solar panels, just make sure to use "deep cycle" batteries and not car batteries. Deep cycle batteries are designed for a continuous slow discharge and recharge over the course of a day (perfect for solar applications). Car batteries are designed to provide a very quick discharge of a lot of captive energy (in order to start the car's engine) and are also designed to be quickly recharged by the car's alternator.
