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 property owner to utilize the sun to power everyday life: running your ac system, washing clothing, enjoying TV, cooking supper. All while lowering your carbon footprint, and without burning fossil fuels or putting a pressure on the electrical grid. And while the environmental advantages of solar power are substantial, many homeowners discover that the convenience, special features, and cost savings of owning a solar power system are much more attractive.
Top Ten Advantages of Solar Energy
#1 Considerably minimize and even remove your electrical expenses
Whether you're a house owner, service, or not-for-profit, electrical energy expenses can comprise a big portion of your month-to-month expenditures. With a photovoltaic panel system, you'll generate free power for your system's whole 25+ year lifecycle. Even if you don't produce One Hundred Percent of the energy you consume, solar will minimize your utility expenses and you'll still save a great deal of cash.
#2 Earn a great return on your investment
Solar panels aren't an expense-- they're one of the best methods to invest, with returns equaling those of more standard financial investments like stocks and bonds. Thanks to significant electrical energy expense savings, the average American homeowner settles their photovoltaic panel system in 7 to 8 years and sees an ROI of 20 percent or more.
#3 Safeguard against increasing energy costs
Among the most clear cut advantages of photovoltaic panels is the capability to hedge utility rates. In the past 10 years, domestic electricity prices have increased by approximately 3 percent annually. By purchasing a solar energy system now, you can fix your electrical power rate and protect against unpredictable increases in electrical power costs. If you're a service or homeowner with changing money flow, going solar likewise assists you better projection and handle your costs.
#4 Boost your home or business worth
Numerous studies have found that homes equipped with solar energy systems have greater residential or commercial property worths and offer quicker than non-solar homes. Appraisers are progressively taking solar setups into consideration as they value houses at the time of a sale, and as homebuyers become more educated about solar, demand for properties geared up with solar panel systems will continue to grow.
#5 Boost U.S. energy self-reliance
The sun is a near-infinite source of energy and a key part of achieving energy self-reliance in the United States. By increasing our capability to produce electrical power from the sun, we can likewise insulate our country from price variations in international energy markets.
#6 Develop jobs and help your local economy
According to 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 development is expected to continue. Since solar-related jobs tend to be higher paying and can not be outsourced, they are a considerable factor to the United States economy.
#7 Secure the environment
Solar is an excellent method to decrease your carbon footprint. Buildings are responsible for 38 percent of all carbon emissions in the United States, and going solar can significantly decrease that number. A normal residential photovoltaic panel system will get rid of three to four lots of carbon emissions each year-- the equivalent of planting over 100 trees yearly.
#8 Show your dedication to sustainability
Sustainability and business social obligation are essential elements of a company's culture and worths. They also produce bottom line results. Significantly, consumers and communities are acknowledging and rewarding businesses that decide to operate properly. Services are discovering that "green" qualifications are a powerful chauffeur of consumer acquiring decisions, producing goodwill and enhancing organisation outcomes.
#9 Start Conserving from Day 1
Solar purchase power arrangements (PPAs) and solar leasing has actually made it possible for house owners to go solar for little or no loan down.
Numerous house owners decide to finance their solar panels with among the "pay-as-you-go" funding alternatives. This means that a third-party company-- the solar company-- owns the solar system and looks after setup, maintenance, monitoring and repair works. You merely pay the solar provider for electricity-- 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 Investment
The energy business are well-known for their changing and undependable electrical power rates. There is clearly an upward trend.
With photovoltaic panels and basic math, we can calculate how much electrical power will be generated, and most significantly, at exactly what cost, for at least the next 20 years (repaired energy expenses).

Frequently Asked Questions
How Is Solar Energy Harnessed (Collected) ?
You can read about solar energy and how it is created and used here:
Which Energy Sources Will Still Be Available When You Are 70?
Solar, geo-thermal, wind, hydro, various fossil fuels, nuclear (fission and hopefully fusion by then), bio-waste fuels.
How Many Solar Panels Do I Need To Run A Pump?
I Plan To Buy Solar Panels Of The Following Configuration:
Sun Force 39110 / 123 Watt - 7 Amps
To Run Through An Inverter, To Produce The 110V I Need To Run The Pump During The Day.
The Pump Is 110V / 7.5 Amps / 0.5 Hp
My Question Is, How Many Solar Panels Would I Need To Run The Pump?
Are you sure you want those panels? It would probably be more cost-effective to get higher-wattage panels. From those specs, it sounds like you need about 800 watts of panels. That's 4 200-watt panels.
I would skip the inverter, and look for a pump that runs off DC. In fact, many AC motors will run off DC, although that's a trial-and-error sort of thing that no one will guarantee. Typically you would lower the voltage input to do so, so a 110-volt AC induction motor would run off maybe 70-80 volts DC, to avoid burning out the motor. But if you get a pump rated for DC, then you'll certainly have something that works right.
What Is A Distributed Resource?
What Is A Distributed Resource (In Terms Of The Environment) Vs A Point Source? I Know Biomass Is A Distributed Resource But What Is The Definition Of &Quot;Distributed Resource&Quot;?
Distributed resource would be an energy source that can be harnessed (effectively) in almost all corners of the world, and doesn't need special conditions to be cost-effective (for instance solar energy is only costs effective in areas with plenty of sun, wind energy in areas with plenty of wind, etc, while biomass, in its many forms, can be successfully harnessed in almost all parts of the world.
What Do You Think Of The Northern Cape?
What'S Your View Of The Northern Cape, With Regards To It'S People It'S Culture, And It'S Three Big Towns\Cities Kimberley,Kuruman And Upington Which Have More That Half The Northern Cape 'S Population And What Do You Think Is The Province'S Future And It'S Future Role In South Africa
I live in the Northern Cape, though not in any of the "big 3" cities.
Its anything but hot & dusty now - in fact it has been raining at least twice a week for months!
It will always have a low population.
Agriculture is the driver of the economy while mining is slowly becoming less significant as the mines close down when they are "mined out". I think it could become a major contributor to renewable energy in future - wind farms and solar energy - perhaps nuclear along the coast.
Karoo villages are becoming quite popular as "getaway" destinations for city folks from particularly the Western Cape - old cottages sell for high prices to these "city refugees".
