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.

In the past 10 years, domestic electrical energy costs have increased by an average of 3 percent yearly.

#5 Boost U.S. energy self-reliance

This indicates that a third-party company-- the solar supplier-- owns the planetary system and takes care of installation, maintenance, monitoring and repairs. You just pay the solar company for electrical energy-- less than you would've paid the energy 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 energy business are well-known for their varying and unreliable electrical power costs. There is clearly an upward trend.
With photovoltaic panels and simple mathematics, we can calculate what does it cost? electrical energy will be created, and most significantly, at what rate, for a minimum of the next 20 years (repaired energy costs).

Frequently Asked Questions
Would You Pay For Electricity If You Had Solar Panels?
You Had Enough Solar Panels To Power Your Home.
You Payed The Expenses Of The Solar Panels.
Would The Electrical Company Still Ask For Money Each Month?
Yes. At night or in cloudy conditions a computer will sense drop in available electric current and the Electrical company supply makes up for the shortfall.
The solar panels are coming down in price and eventually they will pay for themselves. Maintenance is low too. Also you have the good feeling and ability to crow about being a non-polluter.
The Electrical company will only ask money for what you use when it is cloudy or at night. Some use battery storage to get around or reduce this. If you have a surplus of electricity during a very sunny day for example, the electrical company will even buy the electricity back from you if you have this set up to do so.
I Want To Buy Solar Panels?
I Am Intrested In Buying Solar Panels To Save A Buck And Even Maek Some Money Off Of It But I Was Wondering What Kind? How Much? How Many? Are They Easy To Install? Whats The Best Brand? I Want Alot Of Information On This If Anyone Can Give Me Some Help On It In A User Friendly Way It Would Be Appreciated!
If buying solar panels could save a bunch of money we would all be doing it. Unfortunately it will take many years for you to save enough in electricity costs to pay for the panels.
This may change in the future, but right now it is more cost effective to get you electricity from your local power company.
How Do Solar Panels Make Electricity?
I Want To Put Solar Power On Our Home And I Want To Know How Solar Panels Make Electricity?
Its a bit complicated but essentially the sunlight makes electrons jump around and create energy which is stored and converted for use. (thats not entirely accurate, but all you really need to know).
As far as what you need to know for use, the panels use the sun to create energy. This energy is carried through your wiring to a converter or battery back up system in your home. I highly recommend that you search for a local professional to set this service up for you. Otherwise it can get complicated, costly and you may violate some laws... costing you even more in fines and redoing the system.
I'M In College But I Want To Save Energy, Is There A Small Inexpensive Solar Panel System To Invest In?
I Want To Be Able To Install A Small Solar Panel System For My House In College (Which I Will Have For 2 More Years But Want To Take The Panels With Me) But A Serious Solar Panel System Could Cost Upwards Of $20Thousand And I Obviously Can'T Afford That!! Any Ideas Or Suggestions?
Sadly, even an expensive solar panel system does not produce very much electricity.
One of my colleagues installed a $30,000 system on his house several years ago. The system only produces a little over 4,000 kilowatt hours annually. Which is not very much electricity for the amount of money that he spent.
Just to pay the interest on the mortgage that he took out on his house to pay for the system is almost 60 cents per kilowatt hour, and that does not even include depreciation or maintenance on the system. That is a very expensive way to produce electricity.
If you want a solar system that is more cost effective and costs less money. I recommend that you try a solar hot water system instead. It costs much less than a solar photovoltaic system and will reduce you gas bill substantially because you will not have to use much gas to heat hot water except in the winter when the sun is not shining.
