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 house owners to utilize the sun to power everyday life: running your ac system, washing clothes, seeing TV, cooking dinner. All while reducing your carbon footprint, and without burning fossil fuels or putting a strain on the electrical grid. And while the ecological benefits of solar power are considerable, lots of homeowners discover that the convenience, distinct functions, and expense savings of owning a solar power system are even more alluring.
Top Ten Advantages of Solar Energy
#1 Significantly lower or perhaps remove your electrical costs
Whether you're a house owner, business, or nonprofit, 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 don't produce One Hundred Percent of the energy you consume, solar will decrease your utility expenses and you'll still conserve a great deal of loan.
#2 Earn a great return on your investment
Photovoltaic panels aren't an expense-- they're one of the very best methods to invest, with returns rivaling those of more standard investments like stocks and bonds. Thanks to significant electricity expense cost savings, the average American homeowner pays off their photovoltaic panel system in seven to 8 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 ability to hedge energy costs. In the past ten years, residential electricity costs have actually gone up by an average of three percent yearly. By purchasing a solar energy system now, you can fix your electricity rate and safeguard versus unforeseeable boosts in electricity expenses. If you're a service or property owner with rising and falling capital, going solar also helps you much better forecast and handle your expenditures.
#4 Boost your house worth
Multiple research studies have actually discovered that houses equipped with solar energy systems have greater home worths and sell quicker than non-solar houses. Appraisers are progressively taking solar setups 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 photovoltaic panel systems will continue to grow.
#5 Boost 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 capability to create electrical energy from the sun, we can also insulate our nation from cost fluctuations in international energy markets.
#6 Develop jobs and help your local economy
Inning accordance with The Solar Structure, the solar industry included jobs at a rate almost 12 times faster than the overall U.S. economy in 2015, representing 1.2 percent of all jobs in the country. This development is anticipated to continue. Since solar-related jobs tend 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 way to lower your carbon footprint. Buildings are responsible for 38 percent of all carbon emissions in the U.S., and going solar can substantially reduce that number. A typical property solar panel system will get rid of 3 to four tons of carbon emissions each year-- the equivalent of planting over 100 trees each year.
#8 Demonstrate your dedication to sustainability
Sustainability and corporate social responsibility are very important components of an organization's culture and values. They likewise produce bottom line results. Increasingly, customers and communities are acknowledging and rewarding organisations that decide to operate properly. Businesses are finding that "green" credentials are a powerful driver of consumer acquiring decisions, developing goodwill and enhancing service outcomes.
#9 Start Conserving from Day 1
Solar purchase power arrangements (PPAs) and solar leasing has actually made it possible for homeowners to go solar for little or no cash down.
Lots of homeowners select to fund their photovoltaic panels with one of the "pay-as-you-go" financing alternatives. This suggests that a third-party business-- the solar supplier-- owns the planetary system and takes care of setup, upkeep, tracking and repairs. You merely pay the solar supplier for electrical energy-- less than you would've paid the utility company.
As of June 2013, 75% of all American houses have access to pay-as-you-go solar.
#10. Solar is a Secure Financial investment
The utility business are infamous for their varying and unreliable electrical energy prices. There is clearly an upward pattern.
With solar panels and simple math, we can determine how much electricity will be created, and most significantly, at exactly what cost, 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%.
Look at the third link for a pretty decent history of solar energy.
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.
