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 utilize the sun to power everyday life: running your air conditioning unit, cleaning clothing, enjoying 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 considerable, lots of property owners discover that the benefit, unique features, and cost savings of owning a solar power system are even more enticing.
Top 10 Advantages of Solar Energy
#1 Dramatically lower and even remove your electric bills
Whether you're a house owner, company, or nonprofit, electricity costs can comprise a large part of your month-to-month expenses. With a solar panel system, you'll generate totally free power for your system's whole 25+ year lifecycle. Even if you don't produce One Hundred Percent of the energy you consume, solar will minimize your utility bills and you'll still conserve a great deal of money.
#2 Make an excellent return on your financial investment
Photovoltaic panels aren't an expense-- they are among the best methods to invest, with returns measuring up to those of more traditional financial investments like stocks and bonds. Thanks to substantial electrical energy expense cost savings, the average American property owner pays off their photovoltaic panel system in 7 to eight years and sees an ROI of 20 percent or more.
#3 Secure against rising energy expenses
One of the most clear cut benefits of solar panels is the ability to hedge energy prices. In the previous ten years, domestic electrical power costs have increased by an average of 3 percent yearly. By purchasing a solar energy system now, you can repair your electricity rate and protect against unforeseeable increases in electrical energy costs. If you're a service or house owner with rising and falling money circulation, going solar likewise helps you better projection and handle your expenses.
#4 Increase your home or business value
Several research studies have actually discovered that homes equipped with solar energy systems have higher home worths and sell quicker than non-solar houses. Appraisers are significantly taking solar installations into factor to consider as they value houses at the time of a sale, and as property buyers become more informed about solar, demand for residential or commercial properties equipped 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 element of attaining energy independence in the United States. By increasing our capacity to generate electrical energy from the sun, we can also insulate our nation from rate fluctuations in international energy markets.
#6 Develop jobs and assist your local economy
According to The Solar Structure, the solar market added tasks at a rate almost 12 times faster than the general U.S. economy in 2015, representing 1.2 percent of all jobs in the country. This development is anticipated to continue. Due to the fact that solar-related jobs tend to be greater paying and can not be contracted out, they are a significant factor to the U.S. economy.
#7 Protect the environment
Solar is an excellent method to reduce your carbon footprint. Buildings are responsible for 38 percent of all carbon emissions in the U.S., and going solar can significantly reduce that number. A normal property photovoltaic panel system will eliminate three to four lots of carbon emissions each year-- the equivalent of planting over 100 trees each year.
#8 Demonstrate your dedication to sustainability
Sustainability and corporate social obligation are essential components of a company's culture and values. They likewise produce bottom line outcomes. Progressively, consumers and communities are recognizing and rewarding businesses that decide to operate properly. Companies are discovering that "green" qualifications are an effective driver of consumer purchasing choices, producing goodwill and enhancing company outcomes.
#9 Start Conserving from Day 1
Solar purchase power arrangements (PPAs) and solar leasing has made it possible for homeowners to go solar for little or no loan down.
Lots of property owners choose to fund their solar panels with among the "pay-as-you-go" financing alternatives. This indicates that a third-party business-- the solar supplier-- owns the planetary system and looks after installation, upkeep, tracking and repair works. You simply pay the solar company for electrical energy-- less than you would've paid the energy company.
Since June 2013, 75% of all American houses have access to pay-as-you-go solar.
#10. Solar is a Secure Investment
The utility companies are well-known for their changing and undependable electricity prices. There is plainly an upward trend.
With photovoltaic panels and basic math, we can compute what does it cost? electricity will be produced, and most notably, at what rate, for a minimum of the next Twenty Years (repaired energy costs).

Frequently Asked Questions
Do You Know Where I Can Find A Solar Panel With Outlet Or Power Strip?
I Want To Find A Solar Panel That I Can Carry With Me That Has An Outlet Or Power Strip To It, So I Can Plug In My Slow Cooker On Camping Trips For Potlucks &Amp; The Like. It'D Be Awesome If It Also Had A Cord To Power My Phone/Ipod, But I'M Okay With Buy A Separate Solar Charger For That. Any Help Would Be Great. Thanks.
There isn't one.
Solar panels don't deliver 120 volts AC --
they produce something compatible with 12 volt DC systems and batteries.
Also, you'd need a rather large set of panels to operate a slow cooker via an inverter,
which is a power-wasting intermediary to say the least.
A much better option is a "solar oven" or "solar cooker".
Look those up.
The phone is easier to deal with: all it needs is an ordinary (45 watt or so)
solar panel and a car charger connected to a lighter socket,
although I'd probably connect a 7 Ah gel cell across the panel while I was at it.
Charge A Backup Battery With A Portable Solar Panel.?
I Would Like To Know The Most Efficient Way To Charge A Proporta Usb Turbocharger 5000 With A Goal0 Nomad 7 Solar Panel. Would The 12V Or The Usb The Best Charging Solution? Do I Need To Rig Up Some Sort Of Circuitry To Charge It?
Maybe Two Of These Http://Cgi.Ebay.It/700Ma-Solar-Placa-Panel-Modulo-Cargador-5V-Usb-Bateria-/220737049789?Pt=Lh_Defaultdomain_186&Hash=Item3364f414bd In Parallel Would Be A Better Solution?
Thanks In Advance.
Yes it would work by using a voltage regulator to keep the voltage stable.. Without it the panel voltage will not be controlled when the voltage goes up and down during sunny days, and it could damage your battery. 12v panels can range from 15-20v depending on the panel you have. This is what I did to control the voltage output to my phones and DSL box. My phones require 6v, and my DSL box require 12v. The output should match the input voltage to your device. Here's what they look like, and how to hook them up. You may have to double them if your pack draws more power, they put out about an amp of power, and should be mounted on some metal to dissipate the heat. A 10w 50 ohm ceramic resistor will help as well splicing it in from your panel + to your regulator input +.
I Need To Know How Much Does It Cost To Maintain And Buy Solar Panels?
I Know How Much It Cost To Buy But I Need To Know How Much It Cost To Fix A Solar Panel If: The Glass Falls Off, It Gets Hit By A Massive Dust Storm Then It Rains And The Mud Dries, If There Is A Power Surge And It Gets Itself Fried. I Need This For A Report And If I Dont Get This Info Withen Two Days Im Screwed And Im Doing As Much Research As I Can
For a grid-tied (no battery) system, the most common kind of residential system, there is very little to go wrong with the panels themselves. The likely outcome is that the panels will continue to work for 25 years without any additional care. The standard warranty is 25 years, so if one goes bad, the manufacturer will replace it. That doesn't cover accidents like lightning strikes, but the panels are tough against everyday insults like rain, heat, and hail. Also, where I live, there is a requirement that solar electric systems be installed with a 10-year warranty on everything.
The most likely component in the system to fail is the inverter, a repair or replacement cost of perhaps $2000 after 15 years.
Some homeowners wash their panels for optimum performance, but I'm not sure if it makes a whole lot of difference, as nature washes them with dew and rain. I don't know how much it would cost if you had to pay someone to hose off the panels instead of doing it yourself.
How Do I Repair A Soler Panel On My Own?
How Do I Repair One On My Own Getting Someone Else'S Fix Is Not Possible?
Here's what we've learned so far about repairing broken panels:
The are many possible ways to damage a solar panel. The most common seems to be broken glass, from rocks, bullets, a fall (loose bolts on the mount!) or large hail. If you are able to remove all the broken glass, it might be possible to replace it with a new piece -- but the hard part will keeping water from condensing inside and fogging the new glass. It's also possible the panel will still work even with the broken glass in place, though with reduced output from the 'shade' from the broken glass edges. So don't just just throw the broken panel away -- at least check it for output first!
Another common problem is loose solder connections--some connections are intermittent and cut in and out as the panels heat and cool. You may notice cells cutting in and out if you sharply rap the panels with your hand. It may be necessary to cut through the soft silicone in which the cells are embedded to access the backs of the cells for repair. Windy Dankoff's report, reprinted below, shows how to diagnose which cells have bad connections that must be resoldered.
Individual solar cells are somewhat difficult to solder to. Self-adhesive metal stained-glass tape makes for the easiest soldering job--the tape holds itself in place while you solder. Use electronics solder that contains 2% silver. One side of the cell is (+), the other (-). Cells are connected in various combinations of series and parallel, depending on the intended use--our broken panels are made to be connected with 3 or 4 panels in series to charge 12 volt batteries.
I just wanted you to know that I had read your article dealing with solar cell repair using electrically conductive epoxy. You had one contributor who claimed it would not work. I can categorically assure you that it DOES work. I used a silver impregnated epoxy made by Chemtronics. It is called CircuitWorks Conductive Epoxy and I used it to attach the positive wire to the metallic film of my photo panel and it's electrical conductivity is equal to a normal solder joint, but it works where solder would not. It's strong and waterproof.
