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 home owners to utilize the sun to power everyday life: running your a/c, washing clothing, seeing TV, cooking dinner. All while minimizing your carbon footprint, and without burning fossil fuels or putting a pressure on the electrical grid. And while the environmental benefits of solar power are substantial, lots of residents find that the benefit, unique features, and expense savings of owning a solar power system are a lot more attractive.
Leading Advantages of Solar Energy
#1 Significantly minimize and even eliminate your electric expenses
Whether you're a homeowner, organization, or nonprofit, electricity costs can comprise a big portion of your month-to-month expenditures. With a photovoltaic panel system, you'll generate totally free power for your system's whole 25+ year lifecycle. Even if you don't produce 100 percent of the energy you consume, solar will lower your energy expenses and you'll still save a lot of cash.
#2 Earn a great return on your financial investment
Solar panels aren't an expenditure-- they are among the very best ways to invest, with returns equaling those of more conventional investments like stocks and bonds. Thanks to considerable electricity costs savings, the average American homeowner settles their photovoltaic panel system in 7 to eight years and sees an ROI of 20 percent or more.
#3 Protect against rising energy costs
One of the most clear cut benefits of solar panels is the capability to hedge energy rates. In the past ten years, residential electrical energy costs have increased by approximately three percent each year. By buying a solar energy system now, you can fix your electrical power rate and secure against unforeseeable boosts in electrical power expenses. If you're a company or house owner with ever-changing money flow, going solar likewise helps you better forecast and handle your expenses.
#4 Increase your home or business value
Multiple studies have actually discovered that houses equipped with solar energy systems have higher property values and offer more quickly than non-solar homes. Appraisers are progressively taking solar setups into factor to consider as they value homes at the time of a sale, and as property buyers end up being more educated about solar, need for residential or commercial properties geared up with solar panel systems will continue to grow.
#5 Boost U.S. energy self-reliance
The sun is a near-infinite source of energy and a key element of achieving energy self-reliance in the United States. By increasing our capability to produce electrical energy from the sun, we can likewise insulate our country from cost changes in global energy markets.
#6 Develop jobs and assist your local economy
Inning accordance with The Solar Foundation, the solar market included 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 growth is expected to continue. Due to the fact that solar-related jobs tend to be higher paying and can not be contracted out, they are a considerable contributor to the United States economy.
#7 Protect the environment
Solar is a terrific way to reduce your carbon footprint. Buildings are responsible for 38 percent of all carbon emissions in the United States, and going solar can considerably decrease that number. A normal property photovoltaic panel system will eliminate three to 4 lots of carbon emissions each year-- the equivalent of planting over 100 trees each year.
#8 Demonstrate your commitment to sustainability
Sustainability and business social duty are essential parts of a company's culture and worths. They likewise produce bottom line outcomes. Progressively, customers and communities are recognizing and rewarding businesses that decide to run properly. Organisations are discovering that "green" credentials are an effective chauffeur of customer buying choices, producing goodwill and improving company outcomes.
#9 Start Conserving from Day 1
Solar purchase power contracts (PPAs) and solar leasing has actually made it possible for house owners to go solar for little or no money down.
Many homeowners opt to fund their solar panels with one of the "pay-as-you-go" financing alternatives. This suggests that a third-party company-- the solar provider-- owns the solar system and takes care of installation, upkeep, tracking and repair works. You just pay the solar supplier for electricity-- less than you would've paid the energy business.
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 fluctuating and unreliable electrical energy costs. There is clearly an upward pattern.
With solar panels and easy mathematics, we can determine just how much electrical energy will be created, and most importantly, at exactly what price, for a minimum of the next 20 years (repaired energy expenses).

How Many Different Types Of Solar Panels Are There?
The term solar panel is best applied to a flat solar thermal collector, such as a solar hot water or air panel used to heat water, air, or otherwise collect solar thermal energy. But 'solar panel' may also refer to a photovoltaic module which is an assembly of solar cells used to generate electricity. In all cases, the panels are typically flat, and are available in various heights and widths.
An array is an assembly of solar-thermal panels or photovoltaic (PV) modules; the panels can be connected either in parallel or series depending upon the design objective. Solar panels typically find use in residential, commercial, institutional, and light industrial applications.
Solar-thermal panels saw widespread use in Florida and California until the 1920's when tank-type water heaters replaced them. A thriving manufacturing business died seemingly overnight. However, solar-thermal panels are still in production, and are common in portions of the world where energy costs, and solar energy availability, are high.
Recently there has been a surge toward large scale production of PV modules. In parts of the world with significantly high insolation levels, PV output and their economics are enhanced. PV modules are the primary component of most small-scale solar-electric power generating facilities. Larger facilities, such as solar power plants typically contain an array of reflectors (concentrators), a receiver, and a thermodynamic power cycle, and thus use solar-thermal rather than PV.
Harbour Freight Has Solar Panels On Sale. Should I Buy Them?
Well, It Says 45 Watts. Is That Each Panel? And If You Get The Panels Then What?? You Can'T Plug Into A Panel Can You?? I Want To Be Able To Run My Fridge If Power Is Out For Ten Days Again Like It Was In April.
I haven't looked at this in a long time --- but last time I did the storage panels are used to charge large storage batteries --- The kind in a car.
You would than need an inverter to change the 12v DC from the batteries to 110c AC.
Different inverters offer different wattages so you will need to choose carefully.
Since the batteries are on constant charge, during daylight hours, you will need to use a voltage regulator so the batteries are not overcharged.
To find out how many panels and batteries you need and what kind of inverter --- I might want to Google.
Who Invented The First Solar Energy Panel?
Wow, Jonathan.H.Solar, eh? There is no such person.
Edmund Becquerel in 1838 was the first to publish findings of "photovoltaic" properties of certain substances.
In 1873 Willoughby Smith while experimenting with underwater telegraph cables observed the light sensitivity of the element selenium. He later posed the possibility of a selenium solar cell.
In 1883, Charles Fritz produced the first practical solar cell. It had a conversion efficiency of 1-2%.

Solar Panel Webcam?
I'M Trying To Make A Solar Power Convertor For An Existing Webcam I Have. The Webcam Plugs Into A 120 Outlet And Required Max 83 Watts. What Would I Need To Make This Work 24 Hour A Day And 7 Days A Week Without Changing The Batteries Of Adding Aditional Power.
A lot. It depends on where you live and where the camera is located. How many hours of sun will fall on the panel daily?
What will you do on cloudy days? Do you expect the batteries to operate during that period.
Bottom line, how many hours does the camera have to run off the battery alone? From that and the number of hours of sunlight, you can calculate how powerful the solar panel has to be and how large the battery has to be.
For example, if you can only count on 4 hours of sun a day, and the batteries have to carry the load the other 20 hours, then the solar array has to deliver 500 watts. Add 20% for losses and you get 600 watts. The battery has to store this 600 watts. If you use a 12 volt 60 amp-hour sealed battery, one is all you need.
But cloudy days will cause the battery to run completely dry, so for ONE cloudy day, you will have to double those numbers. For 2 cloudy days, you will have to triple them. Now it is getting expensive. The 3 batteries are about $300. The 1800 watts of solar cells are thousands of dollars.
Bottom line, in the real world, you cannot make it run 24/7, since you cannot predict how many cloudy days you will have. The above expensive example only allowed for 2 cloudy days. If you have 5 cloudy days, this could get very expensive, with 6 large batteries, a roof full of solar arrays. And a pile of electronics and inverters to handle the proper charging conditions for the batteries and to generate the 120 volts AC.
A lower power camera will save big dollars. Find one that runs on 10 watts, and suddenly you are looking at a few hundred instead of a large multi thousand dollar installation. And pick a number for how many hours/days of operation you need if bad weather arrives.
Edit: pick a solar array, charger and battery. They will come with instructions and schematics.
Also, when you pick a camera, find or measure its typical current in your application, it should be much lower than the maximum number. Make sure you turn off any feature you don't need, such as LCD display. Typical number will allow you to use a smaller array.
