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 a/c unit, washing clothing, enjoying TELEVISION, cooking supper. All while lowering 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 substantial, numerous homeowners find that the benefit, unique features, and expense savings of owning a solar power system are even more attractive.

Solar panels aren't an expense-- they are among the best ways to invest, with returns rivaling those of more standard financial investments like stocks and bonds. Thanks to considerable electrical energy bill savings, the average American house owner settles their photovoltaic panel system in 7 to eight years and sees an ROI of 20 percent or more.
#3 Safeguard versus increasing energy costs
One of the most clear cut benefits of photovoltaic panels is the ability to hedge energy costs. In the previous 10 years, residential electrical power rates have actually increased by an average of three percent yearly. By purchasing a solar energy system now, you can fix your electricity rate and safeguard versus unforeseeable increases in electrical energy costs. If you're a service or homeowner with ever-changing capital, going solar also helps you better forecast and manage your expenditures.

Numerous research studies have actually discovered that homes geared up with solar energy systems have greater residential or commercial property values and offer quicker than non-solar homes. Appraisers are increasingly taking solar installations into consideration as they value homes at the time of a sale, and as homebuyers become more informed about solar, need for residential or commercial properties equipped with solar panel systems will continue to grow.
#5 Increase U.S. energy self-reliance
The sun is a near-infinite source of energy and a key part of achieving energy independence in the United States. By increasing our capability to produce electrical power from the sun, we can likewise insulate our nation from cost variations in worldwide energy markets.
#6 Develop jobs and assist your regional economy
According to The Solar Foundation, the solar market 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 nation. This development is anticipated to continue. Because solar-related tasks tend to be higher paying and can not be outsourced, they are a substantial contributor to the U.S. economy.

Solar is a fantastic way to reduce your carbon footprint. Buildings are responsible for 38 percent of all carbon emissions in the U.S., and going solar can considerably decrease that number.

#9 Start Conserving from Day 1
Solar purchase power arrangements (PPAs) and solar leasing has actually made it possible for house owners to go solar for little or no cash down.
Lots of homeowners choose to finance their photovoltaic panels with one of the "pay-as-you-go" funding alternatives. This means that a third-party business-- the solar supplier-- owns the planetary system and takes care of setup, maintenance, monitoring and repairs. You just pay the solar supplier for electrical energy-- less than you would've paid the utility business.
As of June 2013, 75% of all American homes have access to pay-as-you-go solar.

Frequently Asked Questions
What Happens When You Shine Different Calor Lights On A Solor Panels?
Like If You Put A Piece Of Blue Glass On A Solar Panel How Much Energy Would That Create.
If you put a piece of blue glass (glass that has a white light shone through it that turns the light blue) would only allow the energy contained in the blue light through to the solar panel. This would decrease a large amount of energy from the solar panel unless it was specifically designed to absorb that color of light.
A majority of the light from the sun is near infrared and visible light. Thus solar panels tend to absorb all visible incoming light and use that for power, rather than a specific small band of light (say, the color blue)
What Are Alternatives To The Usage Of Coal? *Radioactivity Paper.?
I Am Currently Writing A Paper (A Persuasive Writing) On Radio Activity.
In It, I Am Stating That We Should Let Off Of The Usage Of Coal So That We Aren'T Making A Lot Of Nuclear Power To Prevent Radio Activity/Radiation.
Which Causes Skin Cancer And Even Death.
I Need Help In Knowing The Alternatives That We Could Possibly Use.
My Boyfriend Suggested That Each Household Use Solar Panels,And/Or Windmills.
All Help Is Appreciated.
hydroelectric, green landfill gas like methanol, biofuel from burning wood chips, combined cycle technology - steam and gas turbines
Aren'T Solar Panels & Wind Mills A Joke?
Think About It. If Solar And Wind Would Work Everywhere In The Usa The Private Sector Would Fund It As It Would Be A Money Maker. Hmmm No Private Sector Wants To Go Near Solar And Wind And That Is Why Our Government Has To Fund It With Our Tax Dollars.
Also, In The Usa Like Seattle Which Gets A Tremendous Amount Of Rain Which Means No Sun And No Wind, How Will It Work There?
What About In Other States Where Hurricanes & Tornadoes Are Normal, Hail Is Normal, Snow Is Normal Etc......
How Much Is Your Home Owners Insurance Going To Be To Insure Wind Mills/Solar Panels Once Mother Nature Destroys Them?
Where Are All The Cables/Wires Going To Be Stored For Wind Mills Not To Mention All The Containers ?
Shouldn'T We Look Into This Further Before Ruining Our Country With It And Start Using Our Own Natural Resources And Nuclear Which Is Clean?
Solar and wind technology isn't advanced enough for this. Maybe in a few decades...
What Does The Green Party Stand For ? No Haters Please....?
I Am 17 And I Am Starting To Get A Little More Interested In Politics.
I Am Interested In Conserving Energy And Using Re Usable Energy Such As Solar And Wind Power. I Am Into Bio Degradable Products And What Not Too And Helping The Environment
I'M Not Too Sure About The Green Party - Would Anyone Mind Explaining It A Little More To Me Please?
Do Not Bother Commenting If You Are Just Going To Slate It - I Couldn'T Care Less If You Don'T Agree With What They Do I Just Want To Know What They Stand For So I Can Make My Own Mind Up About It!
They don't want people to use the earth's natural resources. They'd be good if our technology and cultures was like, 1000 years more advanced, but... In todays world no. Vote somethin else. Preferably Independent.
I Need To Find Out More Information Concerning Solar Energy For Single Home Use. If You Have Solar Panels Or Have Had In The Past Please Informme If They Are Worth The Cost To Lower My Ultilty Bill?
I Live In The State Of Texas And My Current Rage Is 11. Per Kwh.
Thank You For Your Time And Help
It cost .7 per kWh here. I added up the cost of my system and I insalled it will take me almost 40 years to get my money back. I should be dead by then. Maybe I will sell the house and make it back becaue it does increase the value of a home.
I just went in to a 2 page posting on how to wild guess what it would cost in one of the last three postings.
Check back through my post. There is no need to repeat the same information.
