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 daily life: running your air conditioning unit, washing clothing, watching TV, cooking dinner. All while decreasing your carbon footprint, and without burning nonrenewable fuel sources or putting a strain on the electrical grid. And while the ecological benefits of solar power are considerable, numerous property owners find that the benefit, distinct functions, and expense savings of owning a solar power system are a lot more alluring.
Top 10 Advantages of Solar Energy
#1 Drastically minimize and even eliminate your electrical bills
Whether you're a homeowner, company, or not-for-profit, electrical energy costs can make up a large part of your monthly costs. With a photovoltaic panel system, you'll generate totally 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 reduce your energy expenses and you'll still conserve a lot of loan.
#2 Make a great return on your financial investment
Solar panels aren't a cost-- they're one of the very best ways to invest, with returns rivaling those of more traditional investments like stocks and bonds. Thanks to considerable electrical power expense savings, the average American house owner pays off their solar panel system in seven to 8 years and sees an ROI of 20 percent or more.
#3 Safeguard against increasing energy expenses
Among the most clear cut advantages of solar panels is the capability to hedge utility costs. In the previous 10 years, property electrical power prices have gone up by an average of 3 percent every year. By purchasing a solar energy system now, you can repair your electrical energy rate and secure against unforeseeable boosts in electrical energy expenses. If you're an organisation or homeowner with changing money flow, going solar also helps you better forecast and manage your costs.
#4 Increase your home or business value
Numerous studies have actually found that houses equipped with solar energy systems have higher home worths and sell faster than non-solar houses. Appraisers are significantly taking solar setups into factor to consider as they value houses at the time of a sale, and as homebuyers become more informed about solar, demand for residential or commercial properties equipped with photovoltaic 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 self-reliance in the United States. By increasing our capability to create electricity from the sun, we can also insulate our nation from rate changes in worldwide energy markets.
#6 Create jobs and assist your local economy
Inning accordance with The Solar Foundation, the solar market included tasks at a rate almost 12 times faster than the total U.S. economy in 2015, representing 1.2 percent of all tasks in the nation. This growth is anticipated to continue. Because solar-related jobs have the tendency to be higher paying and can not be outsourced, they are a considerable factor to the United States economy.
#7 Protect the environment
Solar is a great way to decrease your carbon footprint. Buildings are responsible for 38 percent of all carbon emissions in the U.S., and going solar can substantially reduce that number. A common property solar panel system will get rid of 3 to four 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 responsibility are very important components of a company's culture and worths. They also produce bottom line results. Increasingly, customers and communities are acknowledging and rewarding services that decide to operate properly. Organisations are discovering that "green" credentials are an effective motorist of consumer purchasing choices, creating goodwill and improving business outcomes.
#9 Start Conserving from Day 1
Solar purchase power arrangements (PPAs) and solar leasing has made it possible for property owners to go solar for little or no money down.
Lots of property owners pick to finance their solar panels with one of the "pay-as-you-go" financing alternatives. This means that a third-party business-- the solar service provider-- owns the planetary system and looks after setup, maintenance, tracking and repair works. 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 houses have access to pay-as-you-go solar.
#10. Solar is a Secure Financial investment
The utility business are infamous for their changing and unreliable electricity prices. There is plainly an upward pattern.
With solar panels and simple mathematics, we can calculate how much electrical power will be produced, and most significantly, at exactly what rate, for a minimum of the next Twenty Years (repaired energy costs).

Frequently Asked Questions
Solar Power Cheaper Or More Expensive?
Is Solar Power Cheaper Than Regular Electricity Some People Say That If Your Home Is Completely Solar Powered It Is Free But What About The Cost Of The Batteries It Would Take To Store The Energy When They Run Out You Have To By New Batteries I Know Batteries Or Not Cheap
Solar is one of the most expensive. You have it right. The cost of the panels, regular replacement of batteries and the electronics to turn DC into AC all get figured into the cost. Also solar panels have about a 20 year life span before they need to be replaced.
Oil is free to until you and in the cost of drilling, refining and shipping.
If You Have A Coffee Pot That Uses 1000 Watts And You Leave It On For One Hour, It Uses 1 Kwh, Right?
How Many Watts Would A Solar Panel Have To Be Rated For If The Panel 'Ran' At Full For 10 Hours A Day In Order To Power The Coffee Pot That Was Left One For 5 Hours A Day?
You didn't say "rated for 1000 watts", you said "uses 1000 watts". Anyway, ignoring the example you gave, 1000 watts for one hour is
Actually your whole question sounds theoretical, since you specify that the solar panel runs at full capacity for 10 hours and this is impossible.
The biggest problem with your question, theoretical or not, is that you can't run a load at 1000 W off of a source that only supplies 500 W.
You'd have to have a battery to store the 5 hours of solar panel output before the load started running for 5 hours, and then having the panel and battery together supplying the load.
Some1 Super Familiar W/ Batteries, Electricity N Solar Panels Please Help Me With Questions On How To Get Electricity To A Cabin Without....?
I Am Moving On To An Organic Farm And Will Be Living In A Beautiful Log Cabin, Without Electricity. I Would Like To Be Able To Keep My Laptop Charged, Have A Lamp On At Night And Keep A Fan Going On At Night. Does Anyone Actually,Know Of A Creative Way To Get Electricity Out There. I Was Thinking A Solar Panel In The Field To Charge A Marine Battery...? I Dont Know How Big Of A Solar Panel Or Battery I Would Need Though... I Was Thinking Since I Am Not Too Too Far From Their House And Its An Organic Farm A Generator Might Not Be Appropriate And My Cabin Is In The Woods So A Solar Panel Directly Near The Cabin Wouldnt Work Either. I Move April 9Th So I Am Cutting It Short Looking For Ideas, And I Am Looking To Spend No More Than 4Hundred. Help Please!
Taylor, not really a hard project. If it were me, I would use two Trojan T-105 golf cart batteries, you need two because they are 6 volts each, wire them in series for 12 volts. That will give you a 220 amp hour battery. Now go to ebay and look for a panel, no more than 80 watts, but at least 50 watts. Should cost around $90. When the panel comes, see if there are little black diodes across two of the terminal screws in the junction box on the back of the panel. Most have them installed. If so, you only need to connect the positive of the panel to the positive of the battery, and the negative to the negative, and your batteries are charging. You won't need a charge controller if you use the golf cart batteries since the maximum panel amps is less than 2% of the battery capacity, it can't overcharge the batteries. Now go to superbrightleds.com and order a couple small waterproof LED warm white light strips, a 1 foot strip costs around $10. Two of them are great for reading under and they use 1.4 watts each. Get a couple other ones if you like, but use LED's, they are so much more efficient, and since they are 12 volt, you don't need an inverter to run them. Inverters use power just being turned on.
For the laptop, you will need an inverter, I would just look for one around 600 - 800 watts at an auto parts store, or Home Depot, or Harbor Freight, cost around $60. Just use it when you need to charge the laptop, no more than a couple hours a day, and do it when the sun is shining if possible, during the day, instead of running the battery down at night and counting on the panel to recharge in the day, you'll use less power this way. You can also connect a car cigarette lighter outlet to the battery and charge cell phones, ipods, and run MP3 speakers for music off them. Any small electronic device with a car cord will work, even a portable DVD player for the car works fine, we use it on the sailboat this way.
If you want to use a marine battery instead, maybe if you have one already, then get a charge controller, at least a 10 amp model set up for 12 volts. Many work in multiple voltages, 12/24 for example, they are fine. They are even easier to hook up, since they have two screws for the panel, two for the battery, and two for your output, connect the car cigarette lighter outlet there, then you don't have to worry about diodes or over charging. A controller like this might cost you $25 on ebay.
Hi Everybody My Question Is Relating With Solar Panel Plz Some Body Clear Me About Decrease In Amp Of Panel?
Is Current Of Solar Panel Decrease With The Life Cycle Or It Remains Constant.
All semiconductor materials degrade with use, although very slowly, and solar panels are no exception.
Warranties for modern solar panels are written to guarantee 80% of the nameplate power after 25 years. From that, you can get an idea of the degradation.
Cheap amorphous panels may come with only a 90-day warranty, or no warranty at all. That type of panel can go down to 1/3 of the nameplate value in a year.
How To Generate Electricity In Space?
Is There Any Other Way To Generate Electricity In Space Besides Solar Panels?
Thanks In Advance.
A combination of systems, such as a hybrid system would be the most effective.
Of course solar panels are the best way, but due to the inverse square law, the further you are from a star, the less power you can generate. This is good for when you are in close to a star. But the most efficient way would be nuclear fusion. This is the way stars are actually powered, but humans are yet to achieve this. We currently use nuclear fission, which is ok, but we need to improve our techniques.
