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 daily life: running your a/c unit, washing clothing, seeing TELEVISION, 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 ecological benefits of solar power are substantial, numerous residents discover that the benefit, unique functions, and cost savings of owning a solar power system are much more alluring.
Leading Advantages of Solar Energy
#1 Considerably decrease or even remove your electrical costs
Whether you're a homeowner, service, or not-for-profit, electrical power expenses can comprise a large portion of your month-to-month expenditures. With a solar panel system, you'll generate 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 lower your utility expenses and you'll still save a lot of loan.
#2 Make a terrific return on your investment
Solar panels aren't an expense-- they're one of the very best methods to invest, with returns equaling those of more traditional investments like stocks and bonds. Thanks to significant electrical energy expense savings, the typical American homeowner pays off their solar panel system in 7 to eight years and sees an ROI of 20 percent or more.
#3 Safeguard versus rising energy expenses
Among the most clear cut advantages of photovoltaic panels is the capability to hedge energy rates. In the previous 10 years, residential electrical power prices have actually gone up by approximately three percent every year. By buying a solar energy system now, you can fix your electricity rate and protect against unforeseeable boosts in electrical energy expenses. If you're a company or house owner with ever-changing capital, going solar likewise helps you much better forecast and handle your costs.
#4 Increase your house value
Numerous research studies have found that homes geared up with solar energy systems have greater residential or commercial property worths and offer faster than non-solar houses. Appraisers are significantly taking solar installations into consideration as they value houses at the time of a sale, and as homebuyers end up being more informed about solar, demand for homes 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 an essential part of attaining energy independence in the United States. By increasing our capacity to create electrical energy from the sun, we can likewise insulate our country from rate fluctuations in international energy markets.
#6 Develop jobs and assist your local economy
Inning accordance with The Solar Structure, the solar industry added jobs at a rate nearly 12 times faster than the overall U.S. economy in 2015, representing 1.2 percent of all jobs in the nation. This development is anticipated to continue. Because solar-related tasks tend to be greater paying and can not be contracted out, they are a substantial factor to the United States economy.
#7 Protect the environment
Solar is an excellent way to decrease your carbon footprint. Buildings are accountable for 38 percent of all carbon emissions in the U.S., and going solar can substantially reduce that number. A typical residential photovoltaic panel system will remove 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 important elements of an organization's culture and worths. They likewise produce bottom line outcomes. Increasingly, consumers and communities are recognizing and rewarding services that decide to run responsibly. Businesses are discovering that "green" credentials are a powerful motorist of customer buying choices, producing goodwill and enhancing business outcomes.
#9 Start Saving from Day 1
Solar purchase power contracts (PPAs) and solar leasing has made it possible for property owners to go solar for little or no money down.
Numerous property owners opt to finance their solar panels with among the "pay-as-you-go" financing options. This means that a third-party business-- the solar service provider-- owns the planetary system and takes care of installation, upkeep, monitoring and repair works. You simply pay the solar service provider for electricity-- less than you would've paid the energy company.
Since June 2013, 75% of all American homes have access to pay-as-you-go solar.
#10. Solar is a Secure Investment
The utility companies are infamous for their changing and unreliable electrical power prices. There is clearly an upward trend.
With solar panels and basic math, we can calculate what does it cost? electrical energy will be generated, and most importantly, at exactly what rate, for a minimum of the next 20 years (repaired energy expenses).

Frequently Asked Questions
How Big Of A Solar Panel Do You Need To Power A House?
It would depend on a) how much electricty you need for your house b) how much sun shine you get where you live.
The easy answer is "a lot".
Before looking into this you should first concern yourself with reducing your current electricty usage.
The average size of a solar system needed for a house would be approx 2,000 watts. This would however get you power for about 25 lightbulbs.
Also - this would be about 25 feet long by 10-12 feet high, so the initial cost would be somewhat large (though they do last a long time).
Its also worth considering mixing it with wind power if you have a suitable location in your garden.
What Are The Benefits Of Solar Panel Heating?
What Are The Benefits Of Solar Panel Heating?
What Does It Cost For Solar Panels?
Any Other Important Facts About It?
Solar Air Heaters are a great way to supplement the heat in your house. They don't make electricity, they make heat. The box outside the house heats up, and a fan blows the hot air into the house powered by a small solar electric panel. The result, 100% free heat! This morning it was 50 degrees F outside, my kitchen was 70 degrees with my heat turned off. For free. On 20 degree days, it blows 100 degree air into the house. Depending on the size, the heater costs about $1200 - 1600. http://www.altestore.com/store/Solar-Air...
Solar water heating is another great way to make heat from the sun. The sun heats up the water flowing through the solar collectors outside, and transfers the heat into your water heater. Solar water heaters can heat up to 75% of your hot water needs. Additionally, with a larger system, you can use that hot water to heat your radiant floors or panels, or integrate with a forced hot air system to heat your home.
Trying to make electricity to make heat is a very expensive way to go about it. The sun is VERY efficient at making heat, not so efficient at making electricity.
You can also find instructions to make your own solar heaters at http://www.builditsolar.com/Projects/Spa...
I Want To Build A House That Is Energy Efficient And Wanted To Know How I Might Build One That Stands On Its Own.
i would research what they call "solar passive" homes. this is merely the building design taking advantage of your latitude and using the sun and surface area of the home to dramatically reduce your heating and cooling costs. you can also use high-grade insulation, solar panels and/or hydroelectricity, etc. to supplement your electricity needs (and lowering your bills). you can look into straw-bale homes (not as eccentric as the name implies) or "monolithic domes" (these are expensive but will last hundreds of years - they are fire proof, will not be destroyed in a hurricane or tornado, and can even be struck by lightning).
How Long Will It Take A 12V 150Ma Solar Panel To Fully Charge A Car Battery?
Hey Powergland, Flash is quite right. That panel will never actually recharge your car battery. A lead acid battery loses about 3% of its charge per week even if it is not used, and more if it stays connected to the car, so the clock and alarm can function. A 150ma of charge, even for 8 hours a day will barely keep up with the normal losses. Turns out that's exactly what those little dashboard top panels are for. If you park your car at the airport for example and go away on a 10 day trip, it is assumed your battery is near full when you plug in the panel, it really just keeps it up until you return, it isn't going to recharge a dead battery even in full sun in the desert.
You could put a larger panel in it's place, or connect several if you like. One is enough to keep the battery up, the next could be a recharger, but will still take several weeks. A third will cut that time down to several days, and so on. There is a good book at the library called, The Complete Battery Book by Richard Perez, you could just read the chapters on lead acid batteries and become fairly knowledgable on the subject in half an hour or so. Good luck, and take care , Rudydoo
So Nuclear Power Isn'T Containable And Safe , Electrical Grids Are Iffy, What'S Next Solar Power?
Is The Sun The God Of The Elite And Is That What They Want? Wind Turbines Aren'T Very Efficient Either.
Yes, nuclear power has never been safe there's always an element of disaster lurking in the shadows. Unfortunately, it is quite efficient until something goes awry. Could the same thing happen here in the USA? Sure! The question is when and how bad it will be.
Wind turbines are useless unless you live off some ocean.
Solar panels are quite efficient as long as some strong sunlight is readily available.
Solar fusion is our next best bet, because it generates that high-pressure steam needed to spin those large megawatt turbine generators.
We already have in the scorching hot deserts of our Southwest all the tools needed too generate the power for our entire nation's needs. "YES WE DO"
The reason were not doing it right now this year is because that evil monster called greed often has its way of winning new greedy converts, that glorify the nuclear power industry with billions each and every year. Now as a bit of a scientist who has experimented from time to time over the years with no federal funding with the concept of hot fusion several other similar technologies.
All we need to do is build some gigantic to scale facilities that utilize huge underground fuel-cell storage systems capable of operating the entire nationwide power grid for weeks when bad weather arises. The trick is not just using the sun incredible heat energy to generate this high-pressure steam. No, it's the storage of that reserve power which will make this power generating proposal work for the benefit of all God's children.
That's why our generous creator supplied us with radiation free solar
