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 use the sun to power everyday life: running your air conditioner, washing clothing, watching TV, cooking dinner. All while minimizing your carbon footprint, and without burning nonrenewable fuel sources or putting a stress on the electrical grid. And while the environmental advantages of solar power are significant, lots of residents discover that the convenience, unique functions, and expense savings of owning a solar power system are much more enticing.
Top 10 Benefits of Solar Energy

Increasingly, customers and neighborhoods are recognizing and rewarding businesses that choose to operate responsibly. Businesses are finding that "green" qualifications are an effective driver of consumer acquiring choices, developing goodwill and enhancing company results.
#9 Start Saving from Day 1
Solar purchase power arrangements (PPAs) and solar leasing has actually made it possible for property owners to go solar for little or no cash down.
Many house owners opt to fund their solar panels with one of the "pay-as-you-go" funding alternatives. This indicates that a third-party business-- the solar supplier-- owns the solar system and looks after setup, maintenance, tracking and repair works. You merely 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 homes have access to pay-as-you-go solar.
#10. Solar is a Secure Financial investment
The energy business are well-known for their changing and unreliable electrical power costs. There is plainly an upward pattern.
With solar panels and simple math, we can calculate what does it cost? electricity will be produced, and most notably, at exactly what price, for a minimum of the next Twenty Years (fixed energy expenses).

Frequently Asked Questions
How Is Solar Energy Harvested,Stored,Distributed And Priced?
Please Try To Answer At Lesat One Above
Solar energy is harvested in two ways:
1. The sun's heat is harvested. This is usually done by heating a liquid. For home owners, the sun's heat can be used to heat your hot water by circulating it through a solar panel on your roof.
2. The sun's energy is harvested and turned into electricity. This works equally well in hot climates as cold - you just need sunlight. Traditionally, silicon panels are used. There is a molecular reaction when photons (think of these as parcels of sun energy) strike the panels. This sets of a flow of electrons = electricity.
Solar energy can be stored:
a) Storing the heat ie. hot water, by keeping it in an insulated container
b) When storing electricity, you can store this in batteries.
a) For hot water, by connecting this to your house plumbing
b) For electricity, by connecting to your home's electricity system. You can also connect your solar electricity to the grid - this is known as net metering.
With net metering, you can sell solar energy back to the grid. (this is when you can watch your electricity meter run backwards.)
this depends on
a) The price of the solar panel system
b) Your power bills - ie. how much power you can save if you used solar energy instead
c) How much sun is available where you live.
Hope this answers your question :)
What Does This Question Mean?
What Is The Sustainability Of Solar Energy?
Whats It Asking
Or If You Could Just Answer It For Me You Would Be Doing Me A Huge Favor
Solar energy is energy from the sun. Sustainability refers to the ability to keep on keeping on.
The question asks to what extent can we depend on solar energy for the long haul.
I'm sure you can figure out the answer.
Why Is Solar Power Renewable?
Can You Please Explain...B/C I Kind Of Get It But Im Not Too Sure.
The sun provides free and renewable energy, and attempts to make use of it go back well into the 19th century. However, its utilization poses two problems. Solar energy is very diffuse and has to be concentrated if it is to be used as an alternative to fossil fuels. It is also difficult to store, and it must therefore be supplemented by another energy source, such as electricity, to provide energy for heating water, when the sun is not shining. While one does not have to pay for the energy one absorbs sitting in the sun, solar energy in a form suitable for heating requires equipment that has to be paid for. The cost for every known application of solar energy is consequently above that needed to produce the same energy traditionally from fossil fuels.
Reasons Why Nuclear Energy Is The Best?
Well, i dont really think it is, but some reasons are:
It generates more energy than other sources, even if it is more dangerous.
It is an easy source of energy to use, because you dont have to really on region or weather (like wind, hydrolic, and solar energy do with wind and cloudy days and the neeed to be near running water)
It utilizes chemicals and creates more jobs than those needed for other energy sources.
Why Solar Energy Is Not Being Used?
I Wonder Why Are We Not Taking Advantage Of Solar Energy ? Our Carss,Electrical Appliances Can Be Built To Consume Solar Energy Which Is Very Economical, Less Pollutant, Save And Environment Friendly.
The reason why it isn't being used more is because solar power is expensive. It also has only about 10-percent output whereas coal and gasoline have more than 30. Fossil fuels are cheap commodities with dense output. Further, the oil companies are doing what they can to stamp out alternative energy because they're afraid they'll lose profit.
