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 house owners to utilize the sun to power daily life: running your a/c unit, washing clothing, seeing TELEVISION, cooking supper. All while decreasing your carbon footprint, and without burning nonrenewable fuel sources or putting a pressure on the electrical grid. And while the environmental advantages of solar power are substantial, numerous property owners discover that the benefit, distinct functions, and cost savings of owning a solar power system are a lot more alluring.
Top Ten Advantages of Solar Energy
#1 Dramatically lower or perhaps remove your electric expenses
Whether you're a property owner, organization, or not-for-profit, electrical power costs can comprise a large part of your regular monthly costs. With a solar panel system, you'll produce totally 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 utility costs and you'll still save a great deal of money.
#2 Earn a great return on your financial investment
Solar panels aren't an expenditure-- they are among the very best methods to invest, with returns matching those of more traditional investments like stocks and bonds. Thanks to considerable electricity expense cost savings, the typical American homeowner pays off their photovoltaic panel system in 7 to eight years and sees an ROI of 20 percent or more.
#3 Safeguard against rising energy costs
Among the most clear cut advantages of photovoltaic panels is the capability to hedge utility prices. In the past 10 years, domestic electrical power prices have actually increased by approximately three percent each year. By buying a solar energy system now, you can fix your electricity rate and protect versus unforeseeable increases in electricity costs. If you're a service or house owner with changing money circulation, going solar likewise helps you much better forecast and manage your expenditures.
#4 Increase your home worth
Several research studies have actually discovered that houses geared up with solar energy systems have greater residential or commercial property values and offer faster than non-solar homes. Appraisers are significantly taking solar installations into consideration as they value houses at the time of a sale, and as property buyers end up being more informed about solar, demand for residential or commercial properties geared up with photovoltaic panel systems will continue to grow.
#5 Increase U.S. energy independence
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 capacity to produce electrical power from the sun, we can also insulate our country from cost changes in global energy markets.
#6 Create jobs and help your local economy
According to The Solar Structure, 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 nation. This growth is expected to continue. Because solar-related jobs tend to be higher paying and can not be outsourced, they are a significant contributor to the United States economy.
#7 Secure the environment
Solar is a fantastic way to decrease your carbon footprint. Structures are accountable for 38 percent of all carbon emissions in the U.S., and going solar can substantially decrease that number. A typical domestic solar panel system will get rid of 3 to four heaps of carbon emissions each year-- the equivalent of planting over 100 trees each year.
#8 Demonstrate your dedication to sustainability
Sustainability and business social obligation are essential elements of an organization's culture and values. They likewise produce bottom line outcomes. Increasingly, consumers and neighborhoods are acknowledging and rewarding services that decide to operate properly. Services are discovering that "green" qualifications are a powerful driver of customer buying choices, creating goodwill and enhancing organisation outcomes.
#9 Start Conserving 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.
Many property owners choose to finance their photovoltaic panels with one of the "pay-as-you-go" funding choices. This suggests that a third-party company-- the solar provider-- owns the planetary system and takes care of setup, upkeep, monitoring and repair works. You merely pay the solar supplier 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 Financial investment
The energy business are infamous for their fluctuating and undependable electrical power costs. There is clearly an upward pattern.
With solar panels and simple mathematics, we can compute just how much electrical energy will be generated, and most importantly, at what cost, for a minimum of the next Twenty Years (repaired energy costs).

Frequently Asked Questions
Joule Thief Vs Solar Panel?
Ok, So I'Ve Been Having Much Success With The Joule Thief Circuit And A Led, But I Tried Hooking It Up To A Small Solar Panel That Can Put Out 2.5V On It'S Own, And Can Light Up A White Led Dimly By It Self To The Joule Thief And It Will Not Work ....My Question Is Why? I Already Trouble Shooted It, The Circuit Is Not The Problem, Is It The Amount Of Amps The Small Solar Panel Is Capable Of? Not Enough?
Solar panels convert light energy to electrical energy with an efficiency of around 15%.
A "SMALL" solar panel will only produce a small amount of power (watts)
your joule thief circuit wont help because as you draw more current from the solar panel the voltage will drop; and your joule thief circuit just reduces the efficiency of the whole system
Try adding another solar cell in series to get more voltage and more power.
Why Not Make Solar Panels Mandatory?
The Way I See It If Every New House Over 1000Sq.Ft. Puts A Solar Panel On There Roof Coal Factories Wouldn'T Have To Put Out As Much Electricity. Then Make All New Commercial Buildings Over A Certain Sq.Ft. Be Required To Put Solar Panels On. The Bigger The Building, More Solar Panels. The Government Should Make This Technology Cheaper And Easier To Buy. New Buildings And Houses Can Add It On There Mortgage. Etc. Just A Thought. Please Send Replies I Am Thinking About Calling My Representative.
The Average System Is 15-30 Thousand Dollars But That For A System To Power Your House All Day And Night. Of Course You Don'T Create Power At Night But You Electric Company Buys What You Don'T Use. I'M Asking To Put A 5Kwh Or Smaller On All New Houses Put The Cost In You Mortgage Should Only Add 1-5 Thousand Dollars.
The price is to high! the systems fail. the though is good. mandatory? we need an energy policy that promotes clean energy/wind, solar PV, solar thermal, solar hot water, solar A/C and chillers, nukes, and taxes to the real price of oil, coal, beef....
Solar Paneling - How Good Is It? Worth The Set Up Costs?
Any Information On Solar Paneling Now, How Is It Better, How Long Will A Panel Last, Can I Run An Entire Home On It If I Have The Right Amount Of Sunlight? Any Info From People With First Hand Experience Would Be Appreciated.
It depends a lot on where you live for two reasons - how much sun you get, and the financials - price of electricity and possible incentives.
I'd suggest solar hot water first - cheaper to put in, quicker payback.
We put up solar electric in 2006. It's not a big moneymaker in our location, and also, I unfortunately oversized our system. Still, it's comparable to the electric company, maybe a slight savings over time. Pretty much no maintenance, no problems.
What you can do is get a local solar installer to quote you on a system, then compare that to your possible electric bills over the life of the system. It will likely last 20-25 years - that's the standard warranty on panels.
Solar Panels Question: What Module (Approximate Kw?) Can Be Installed On A 900 Sq. Feet Flat Roof Near Toronto?
Hi, Feedback From Anyone With Knowledge On The Topic Would Be Appreciated! Thanks.
Toronto is about latitude 45 degrees. A flat roof does not sound like a good place to put solar panels at high latitude. Even if we ignore the issue of snow collecting on the panels, if you lay them flat on the roof, you'll throw away some 30 percent of the energy right off the bat. And if you arrange the panels in tilted rows, then the front row will block the one behind it in the winter. All that said, if the roof is a square, 30 feet on a side, it seems you could fit a single tilted row of panels on it without drawbacks. I'm guessing that would be 2.5 kW or so. That also assumes there are no obstructions like other buildings, wires, or drain vents.
Try contacting a local solar installer for an opinion.
12 Volt Solar Panel + Dc To Ac Inverter?
Can You Use A 12 Volt Solar Panel With A Cigarette Lighter Connector Straight To A Dc To Ac Inverter? To Charge Things Like A Laptop (Or Hold A Charge, May Not Be Powerful Enough To Charge It)
Maybe Have A Battery Between? Would That Help? Like A Motorcycle Battery? Im Going On A Trip And Need A Cheap Way To Keep Things Charged.
You need a battery to hold and equalize the charge.
You will need an 80W+ panel to have a net gain.
I recommend an AGM 8GU1 type battery for that sort of duty, and a 150W inverter.
