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 use the sun to power everyday life: running your air conditioner, washing clothes, viewing TELEVISION, cooking dinner. All while lowering 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 substantial, numerous home owners discover that the convenience, unique functions, and expense savings of owning a solar power system are a lot more alluring.
Top Ten Advantages of Solar Energy

Even if you don't produce One Hundred Percent of the energy you take in, solar will lower your utility bills and you'll still conserve a lot of cash.
#2 Make an excellent return on your financial investment
Solar panels aren't a cost-- they're one of the very best ways to invest, with returns matching those of more standard financial investments like stocks and bonds. Thanks to substantial electricity bill savings, the typical American house owner settles their photovoltaic panel system in 7 to eight years and sees an ROI of 20 percent or more.
#3 Safeguard against increasing energy expenses
One of the most clear cut benefits of photovoltaic panels is the ability to hedge energy prices. In the previous 10 years, property electrical energy costs have actually gone up by approximately 3 percent every year. By purchasing a solar energy system now, you can repair your electrical energy rate and secure versus unpredictable increases in electrical power expenses. If you're a business or house owner with rising and falling cash flow, going solar likewise assists you much better projection and manage your expenditures.
#4 Increase your home or business value
Multiple studies have actually discovered that houses geared up with solar energy systems have higher property worths and offer more quickly than non-solar houses. Appraisers are progressively taking solar installations into consideration as they value homes at the time of a sale, and as homebuyers become more educated about solar, demand for residential or commercial properties geared up with solar panel systems will continue to grow.
#5 Increase U.S. energy independence
The sun is a near-infinite source of energy and a crucial component of accomplishing energy independence in the United States. By increasing our capability to produce electrical power from the sun, we can likewise insulate our nation from cost changes in international energy markets.
#6 Create jobs and help your local economy
According to The Solar Foundation, the solar market added jobs at a rate nearly 12 times faster than the general U.S. economy in 2015, representing 1.2 percent of all jobs in the nation. This growth is anticipated to continue. Due to the fact that solar-related tasks tend to be greater paying and can not be contracted out, they are a significant contributor to the U.S. economy.
#7 Secure the environment
Solar is an excellent method to lower your carbon footprint. Buildings are accountable for 38 percent of all carbon emissions in the United States, and going solar can substantially reduce that number. A normal property solar panel system will get rid of three to 4 heaps of carbon emissions each year-- the equivalent of planting over 100 trees yearly.
#8 Demonstrate your commitment to sustainability
Sustainability and corporate social duty are essential elements of an organization's culture and values. They likewise produce bottom line outcomes. Significantly, customers and communities are recognizing and rewarding businesses that opt to operate properly. Services are finding that "green" qualifications are a powerful motorist of consumer purchasing choices, producing goodwill and enhancing service results.
#9 Start Conserving from Day 1
Solar purchase power arrangements (PPAs) and solar leasing has actually made it possible for homeowners to go solar for little or no cash down.
Numerous homeowners decide to fund their photovoltaic panels with among the "pay-as-you-go" financing options. This means that a third-party business-- the solar supplier-- owns the solar system and looks after installation, upkeep, tracking and repairs. You simply pay the solar supplier for electrical power-- less than you would've paid the utility business.
Since June 2013, 75% of all American homes have access to pay-as-you-go solar.
#10. Solar is a Secure Investment
The utility business are well-known for their varying and unreliable electrical power rates. There is plainly an upward trend.
With photovoltaic panels and easy mathematics, we can compute how much electricity will be produced, and most importantly, at what cost, for at least the next 20 years (repaired energy costs).
What are the various payment options?
We have many flexible purchasing agreements for customers who would like to install a new home solar system. There are three different payment options, making them a viable choice for customers of all budgets. The payment options include Lease, PPA, and Purchase.
- Low, fixed payments each month

Frequently Asked Questions
When Solar Panels Is Generating Energy, Where The Excess Energy Go When The Input Power More Than Need? And?
Depends on what type of solar power system you are using. If you are using a grid tied system, then any extra electricity you do not use will be sent back to the grid, and the local electrical company will purchase it from you.
But, if you are using a off grid system, then you will need deep cell battery storage for any extra power you create. Plus, you will need the battery system to use at night when the solar panels are not able to collect power.
The Laws Of Physics State That Energy Cannot Be Converted Or Destroyed. So Where Does Wind Come From?
This Is Confusing Me, If It Cannot Be Created Or Destroyed, Then How/Where Does Wind Come From? Also Is There Infinite Wind?
NO! The law states that energy cannot be CREATED nor DESTROYED but can be converted. This is the LAW OF CONSERVATION OF ENERGY.
Then, where does wind come from?
First, all of energy in our planet earth came from the sun, the solar energy. This solar energy heated the earth making different temperatures in different parts of the earth. Some parts has cold and some has warm. Air travel from warm area to cold area. The motion or movement of air is the wind.
Also, there is this CORIOLIS EFFECT, which is caused by the rotation of the earth and the inertia of the mass experiencing the effect. This effect also create wind.
Hope that answers your curiosity.
Which Is Better Hydro Power Energy ,Or Solar Power Energy?
I'M Doing A Science Fair Project And I Need Some Help. Which Is Better Hydro Powerr Or Solar Power. Where I Live, There Are Streams Running In The Backyard Off Everyones House. So Hydro Power Is More Usful Here. What Do Y'All Think?
hydropower is proven and reliable technology and currently the most dominant source of renewable energy in United States while solar power is the fastest growing industry in the country ans also the most abundant renewable energy source.
any way here's more info:
Should Solar Energy Use Be Increased?
Yes, California is trying to do just that. A few years ago we passed a law that requires energy companies and other manufacturing to begin reporting their emissions no later than this year and then begin working on reducing their emissions. The Goal is for CA as a state to reduce emissions to 1990 levels by I think 2012.
A couple of ways we are working to achive this goal is not allowing utility companies to buy "dirty energy" from nearby states, the entire energy portfolio is considered when calculating emissions, no matter where the energy was produced. That has forced the energy companies to turn to clean renewable energy.
We have a great renewable energy rebate system in CA, it varies depending on how an individual utility choses to use it. I am in the process of installing PV solar panels and I was able to get a $10K rebate from my local utility, I will also get a $2K federal tax credit, this has cut my out of pocket expense by half. My system should be paid for in less than 6 years, less in energy prices go up faster than expected.
The CA program is helping set the stage for other states, we have increased demand for panels which has increased production, which in turn lowers prices. This program has had a great economic impact for the state.
My solar panels help relieve the grid by supplying my home with electricity during peak demand. We currently suffer from rolling brown outs when we have heat waves, this could be a thing of the past. It is also cheaper to instal PV panels on homes and business than to build more electrcity plants.
Do The Solar Panels Store Energy?
Jay is telling you the correct answer about the PE cells. In addition, unless you have a "off grid " system most PE systems installed today don't use batteries to store energy rather they use an inverter to change the DC power to AC and synchronizes it with the utility power entering your home or business where it is consumed. Then when you generate more power than you use it is back fed into the power grid and you receive credits from the power company for that energy.
On the surface solar energy seems very simple but in reality it is very complex.
