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 resident to utilize the sun to power daily life: running your air conditioner, washing clothing, watching TELEVISION, cooking supper. All while minimizing your carbon footprint, and without burning nonrenewable fuel sources or putting a pressure on the electrical grid. And while the ecological benefits of solar power are considerable, lots of residents find that the benefit, unique features, and expense savings of owning a solar power system are much more alluring.
Top 10 Advantages of Solar Energy
#1 Dramatically lower or perhaps remove your electrical bills
Whether you're a house owner, service, or nonprofit, electrical energy expenses can comprise a large portion of your regular monthly expenses. With a photovoltaic panel system, you'll create totally free power for your system's whole 25+ year lifecycle. Even if you do not produce One Hundred Percent of the energy you consume, solar will decrease your utility costs and you'll still conserve a lot of cash.
#2 Make a fantastic return on your investment
Solar panels aren't an expense-- they're one of the very best methods to invest, with returns matching those of more conventional financial investments like stocks and bonds. Thanks to significant electricity costs cost savings, the typical American homeowner settles their photovoltaic panel system in 7 to eight years and sees an ROI of 20 percent or more.
#3 Safeguard against rising energy expenses
Among the most clear cut benefits of solar panels is the ability to hedge utility costs. In the past 10 years, property electricity prices have actually gone up by approximately three percent each year. By purchasing a solar energy system now, you can repair your electricity rate and protect versus unpredictable boosts in electrical power expenses. If you're a service or house owner with fluctuating money flow, going solar likewise assists you better projection and manage your expenses.
#4 Boost your house value
Multiple research studies have found that houses equipped with solar energy systems have greater property values and sell more quickly than non-solar homes. Appraisers are significantly taking solar setups into consideration as they value homes at the time of a sale, and as property buyers become more educated about solar, demand for homes geared up with photovoltaic panel systems will continue to grow.
#5 Boost U.S. energy self-reliance
The sun is a near-infinite source of energy and a crucial element of achieving energy self-reliance in the United States. By increasing our capability to produce electricity from the sun, we can also insulate our nation from cost fluctuations in worldwide energy markets.
#6 Develop jobs and help your local economy
Inning accordance with The Solar Structure, the solar industry added tasks at a rate almost 12 times faster than the overall U.S. economy in 2015, representing 1.2 percent of all jobs in the nation. This development is expected to continue. Since solar-related tasks have the tendency to be greater paying and can not be outsourced, they are a considerable factor to the U.S. economy.
#7 Secure the environment
Solar is an excellent method to lower your carbon footprint. Buildings are accountable for 38 percent of all carbon emissions in the United States, and going solar can considerably decrease that number. A common 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 Show your commitment to sustainability
Sustainability and corporate social obligation are important elements of a company's culture and values. They also produce bottom line outcomes. Increasingly, customers and neighborhoods are recognizing and rewarding services that pick to run responsibly. Services are finding that "green" qualifications are a powerful chauffeur of customer getting choices, creating goodwill and enhancing company results.
#9 Start Conserving 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 cash down.
Many homeowners decide to fund their photovoltaic panels with among the "pay-as-you-go" financing options. This suggests that a third-party company-- the solar service provider-- owns the solar system and takes care of installation, upkeep, tracking and repair works. You merely pay the solar provider for electrical energy-- less than you would've paid the utility business.
Since June 2013, 75% of all American houses have access to pay-as-you-go solar.
#10. Solar is a Secure Financial investment
The energy business are notorious for their changing and unreliable electrical power costs. There is clearly an upward trend.
With photovoltaic panels and easy math, we can compute what does it cost? electrical power will be produced, and most notably, at what price, for a minimum of the next 20 years (fixed energy expenses).

Frequently Asked Questions
What Does Solar Energy Mean?
I Am Doing A Big Project And I Need To Know What Is Solar Energy
Solar energy is light that has been given off by the Sun and is harnessed by humans for multiple uses such as electricity, technology and things of that nature. solar energy is a renewable resource, which means we don't have to worry about running out of it, like fossil fuels(coal, oil, and natural gas). The most common way to obtain solar energy is through solar panels. Solar energy, along with many other renewable resources, are going through extensive research and development. Solar energy is also one of the fastest growing ways we obtain our energy needs.
What Are Some Facts About Solar Energy?
I Am Doing A Science Project And Need Some Help On Solar Energy. Thanks! : )
1. most of the energy given off by the sun is in the form of visible light, that's why our eyes have evolved to see in that range.
2. the amount of energy that hits the earth at the top of the atmosphere is 1.3 to 1.4 kilo watts per square meter
3. enough energy hits the earth from the sun to power every car, truck, train, boat, house, factory and all the equipment in the world many times over.
4. most commercially available solar panels convert 10 to 15% of the sunlight into electricity, but panels exist that convert up to 30%
5. simple devices exist which convert solar energy into heat at close to 100% efficiency (like black pavement). That heat can power a generator at up to 40% efficiency.
6. the wind is powered by the sun, so wind turbines are also solar energy collectors.
7. ocean waves are powered by the wind, so ocean wave powered generators are also solar energy collectors.
8. Most houses will end up with a surplus of electricity if they have 700 watts worth of solar panels, that can easily fit on almost any roof.
9. if a car uses 20 gallons of gas in a week, it would need about 3.5 kw worth of solar panels to feed it's needs, that can also fit on most roofs.
10. the suns rays can be focused with a lens or a curved mirror to produce extremely concentrated beam of light that can produce extremely high temperatures.
What Can Be Done To Manage Energy Use In A Sustainable Way?
Can Anyone Tell Me What Can Be Done To Manage Energy Use In A Sustainable Way? And As An Active Citizen What Can I Do?
We have enough Uranium for millions of years if we use breeder reactors (a proven technology) so we aren't going to be running out any time soon. They are also environmentally friendly with the only waste being some spent fuel that will become less dangerous as time goes on (less dangerous than the ore it came from in about 100 years, we can easily keep it safe for that long).
In a few decades we'll probably have fusion power which should last us a very very long time and the space infrastructure to collect solar power in a place that isn't dark half the time.
How Is Energy In A Solar Or Nuclear Powerplant Made?
I Need To Find Out The Type Of Powerplant And How The Electricity Or The Energy Is Made So Please Help Me!! I Need The Info By This Friday!!
Nuclear power can come from the fission of uranium, plutonium or thorium or the fusion of hydrogen into helium. Today it is almost all uranium. The basic energy fact is that the fission of an atom of uranium produces 10 million times the energy produced by the combustion of an atom of carbon from coal.
Natural uranium is almost entirely a mixture of two isotopes, U-235 and U-238. U-235 can fission in a reactor, and U-238 can't to a significant extent. Natural uranium is 99.3 percent U-238 and 0.7 percent U-235.
Most nuclear power plants today use enriched uranium in which the concentration of U-235 is increased from 0.7 percent U-235 to (nowadays) about 4 to 5 percent U-235. This is done in an expensive separation plant of which there are several kinds. The U-238 "tails" are left over for eventual use in "breeder reactors". The Canadian CANDU reactors don't require enriched fuel, but since they use expensive heavy water instead of ordinary water, their energy cost is about the same.
In 1993 there were 109 licensed power reactors in the U.S. and about 400 in the world. They generate about 20 percent of the U.S. electricity. (There are also a large number of naval power reactors.) The expansion of nuclear power depends substantially on politics, and this politics has come out differently in different countries. Very likely, after some time, the countries whose policies turn out badly will copy the countries whose policies turn out well.
For how long will nuclear power be available? Present reactors that use only the U-235 in natural uranium are very likely good for some hundreds of years. Bernard Cohen has shown that with breeder reactors, we can have plenty of energy for some billions of year.
Cohen's argument is based on using uranium from sea water. Other people have pointed out that there is more energy in the uranium impurity in coal than could come from burning the coal. There is also plenty of uranium in granite. None of these sources is likely to be used in the next thousand years, because there is plenty of much more cheaply extracted uranium in conventional uranium ores.
A power reactor contains a core with a large number of fuel rods. Each rod is full of pellets of uranium oxide. An atom of U-235 fissions when it absorbs a neutron. The fission produces two fission fragments and other particles that fly off at high velocity. When they stop the kinetic energy is converted to heat - 10 million times as much heat as is produced by burning an atom of the carbon in coal. See the supplement for some interesting nuclear details.
Besides the fission fragments several neutrons are produced. Most of these neutrons are absorbed by something other than U-235, but in the steady-state operation of the reactor exactly one is absorbed by another U-235 atom causing another fission. The steam withdrawn and run through the turbines controls the power level of the reactor. Control rods that absorb neutrons can also be moved in and out to control the nuclear reaction. The power level that can be used is limited to avoid letting the fuel rods get too hot.
The heat from the fuel rods is absorbed by water which is used to generate steam to drive the turbines that generate the electricity.
A large plant generates about a million kilowatts of electricity - some more, some less.
After about two years, enough of the U-235 has been converted to fission products and the fission products have built up enough so that the fuel rods must be removed and replaced by new ones.
What to do with the spent fuel rods is what causes most of the fuss concerning nuclear power.

Hi. If you have the panels, the cost is essentially just the maintenance. The power is free.
Installing panels in the optimum position for sunlight duration and seasonal needs. (A/C vs heat.)
Some of the newer ones are flexible and can conform to about any shape. But south facing window films (in the northern hemisphere) may be the best use.
