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 ac system, cleaning clothes, viewing TV, cooking dinner. All while minimizing 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, lots of residents discover that the benefit, special features, and cost savings of owning a solar power system are a lot more alluring.
Top 10 Advantages of Solar Energy

Thanks to substantial electrical power bill cost savings, the typical American homeowner pays off their photovoltaic panel system in seven to eight years and sees an ROI of 20 percent or more.
#3 Secure versus increasing energy expenses
One of the most clear cut advantages of solar panels is the capability to hedge energy rates. In the past 10 years, domestic electricity costs have gone up by approximately three percent each year. By investing in a solar energy system now, you can repair your electrical energy rate and secure against unpredictable boosts in electrical power costs. If you're an organisation or house owner with rising and falling capital, going solar also assists you better projection and manage your expenses.

#9 Start Saving 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.
Lots of property owners opt to fund their photovoltaic panels with one of the "pay-as-you-go" funding options. This implies that a third-party business-- the solar provider-- owns the planetary system and takes care of installation, upkeep, tracking and repairs. You simply pay the solar service provider for electrical power-- less than you would've paid the energy 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 companies are notorious for their changing and undependable electrical power rates. There is clearly an upward trend.
With photovoltaic panels and easy mathematics, we can calculate how much electricity will be generated, and most notably, at what cost, for at least the next 20 years (repaired energy costs).

Frequently Asked Questions
What Are Problems Of Fossil Fuels And The Advantages Of Solar Energy.?
What Are The Pros And Cons Of Solar Energy With Respect To Cost, Impact On The Environment, Availability Etc.
There are several problems with fossil fuels. They are a limited commodity, they cause pollution when burned, and they are destructive to drill for or mine.
Solar energy is a growing technology right now. People who have solar panels on their houses often generate more electricity than they can even use, and in some places they can sell it back to the power companies and make a profit while not paying for electricity.
At present, solar panels are expensive to buy, but this will change as more people buy them, just like any other technology.
For the environment, I would guess that solar energy is almost completely harmless. I don't know what kind of chemicals that are required for making solar panels, but once they are produced, solar energy uses a virtually unlimited energy source that is clean to harvest and gives off no emissions.
Can I Hard Wire Various Inverters And Solar Panels To A Deep Cycle Marine Battery?
Using A 12V Marine Battery, 550Cca, 140 Reserve Capacity. I Want To Use A Cheap Solar Panel, But Can I Hard Wire The Two? If So, How Many Watts Must The Solar Panel Put Out To Be Efficient?
What you need is the amp-hour rating of the battery. The rest are meaningless. I know battery manufacturers try to hide the meaningful numbers, but they are needed.
If I assume a 100 amp-hour capacity for the battery, which is a large one, that equates to about 1kW-hour storage.
You cannot hard wire them, unless the solar panel is so small that it will just trickle charge the battery. In that case, you need at least a rectifier, 1N4001, between the panels and the battery to prevent the battery from discharging through the panel when there is no sun. You would need a panel that can supply at least 16 volts in that case.
For a larger panel you need a charge controller in the middle to prevent overcharging the battery. This is for panels in the range of 30 watts on up.
What do you mean by "efficient" ?
Bought A House With A Galvanised Iron Roof, Will It Be Very Noisy? I'M Putting 3 K/W Of Solar Panels On.?
I'M Assuming It Will It Be Horribly Noisy When It Rains. Hopefully The Solar Panels I'M Installing Will Lessen The Noise? Any Thoughts Or Advice Would Be Appreciated.
that's so funny... many people actually prefer them because they find the sound of the rain falling on them SOOTHING. it's a little like living near the ocean and complaining about the noisy surf.
How Can I Tell If My Solar Light Is Working?
If I Put A 'Charged' Battery In It, It Will Light-Up After Dark. But, I Don't Think The 'Solar Panel' Is Charging The Battery! Is There A Way I Can Check It, Without Getting Too Complicated?
You know how to use a volt meter on a battery? Try it on the terminals of the solar panel in direct sunlight.
And make sure the voltage from the solar panel is greater than the battery.
How Easy Would It Be To Build A Small Solar Collector That Would Help Heat My House?
I Have Heard That These Can Be Built Fairly Easy And Could Have A Blower Added On Them To Help Heat A House. Does Anyone Know Where Plans Could Be Bought At Or Where I Could Find More Information About Something Like This?
here are some of the links for building a solar panel. A friend of mine and I built one to heat his pool on top of his garage and it works wonderfully.
