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 homeowner to use the sun to power everyday life: running your a/c unit, cleaning clothes, watching TV, 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 advantages of solar power are substantial, numerous homeowners find that the benefit, distinct functions, and cost savings of owning a solar power system are even more alluring.
Top Ten Benefits of Solar Energy

Whether you're a property owner, business, or nonprofit, electricity costs can comprise a large portion of your month-to-month expenses. With a solar panel system, you'll generate free power for your system's whole 25+ year lifecycle. Even if you don't produce One Hundred Percent of the energy you take in, solar will minimize your utility bills and you'll still conserve a great deal of money.
#2 Make a fantastic return on your financial investment
Solar panels aren't a cost-- they are among the very best ways to invest, with returns rivaling those of more conventional investments like stocks and bonds. Thanks to significant electricity costs savings, the typical American house owner settles their solar panel system in seven to 8 years and sees an ROI of 20 percent or more.
#3 Secure against increasing energy costs
Among the most clear cut advantages of solar panels is the capability to hedge utility prices. In the past ten years, domestic electrical power costs have gone up by approximately 3 percent annually. By buying a solar energy system now, you can fix your electrical power rate and safeguard against unforeseeable increases in electrical power expenses. If you're a company or property owner with fluctuating capital, going solar likewise helps you much better forecast and manage your expenditures.
#4 Boost your house worth
Multiple research studies have actually found that houses geared up with solar energy systems have greater property worths and offer quicker than non-solar houses. Appraisers are significantly taking solar setups into consideration as they value houses at the time of a sale, and as property buyers end up being more educated about solar, demand for properties geared up with photovoltaic 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 component 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 price changes in international energy markets.
#6 Create jobs and help your local economy
According to The Solar Foundation, the solar industry added tasks at a rate nearly 12 times faster than the total U.S. economy in 2015, representing 1.2 percent of all jobs in the country. This growth is expected to continue. Due to the fact that solar-related tasks tend to be greater paying and can not be outsourced, they are a substantial factor to the U.S. economy.
#7 Safeguard the environment
Solar is a terrific way to reduce your carbon footprint. Structures are accountable for 38 percent of all carbon emissions in the United States, and going solar can significantly decrease that number. A normal residential solar panel system will get rid of three to 4 loads of carbon emissions each year-- the equivalent of planting over 100 trees annually.

Significantly, customers and neighborhoods are recognizing and rewarding businesses that opt to run responsibly. Services are discovering that "green" credentials are an effective motorist of consumer purchasing choices, producing goodwill and enhancing organisation outcomes.
#9 Start Conserving from Day 1
Solar purchase power agreements (PPAs) and solar leasing has actually made it possible for property owners to go solar for little or no cash down.
Numerous homeowners choose to fund their photovoltaic panels with among the "pay-as-you-go" funding choices. This means that a third-party business-- the solar supplier-- owns the solar system and looks after installation, upkeep, tracking and repairs. You simply pay the solar provider for electricity-- 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 Investment
The energy companies are notorious for their fluctuating and undependable electricity prices. There is clearly an upward trend.
With solar panels and simple mathematics, we can calculate what does it cost? electricity will be generated, and most significantly, at what rate, for a minimum of the next 20 years (repaired energy expenses).

Frequently Asked Questions
Cell Analogy To A Things In Your House?
Cell Analogy To Things In Your House/?
Okay So I Have A Project To Do For Biology And I Have To Do An Analogy Of Things In A House To An Plant Cells.I Need Analogies For These Words
Endoplasmic Reticulum(Smooth And Rough)
I Really Need Help So Please Help Me! Thanks!
OK, the cell membrane controls what goes in and out so possibly the best analogy would be your front door or even the letterbox (possibly the hardest one to find a single analogy for as it is so complex).
The cell wall is closely associated with the membrane and provides physical support for the cell so the walls of your house may be a good starting point. The cell wall can't control what goes in and out though.
Nucleus is a control centre coordinating the production of proteins It contains DNA that is like an instruction manual so in terms of your house it would be like some kind of instruction manual on "how to build a house"!
Ribosomes build protein using the instructions from DNA so they would be like the builders reading the instructions on how the house works and building it. They also build proteins to export so they could also be like a person making something to take away from the house like a home business.
Rough ER packages up proteins so it would be a bagging machine!
Smooth ER makes things needed by the cell... can't think of anything for that one...
Vacuole is a storage area and helps provide support, so a cellar or store room.
Chloroplast makes food using energy from the sun to form glucose from CO2 and water so a solar panel?? But that wouldn't make food
Mitochondria use food and oxygen to release energy in respiration. If it is purely to do with releasing energy then maybe a battery or plug socket.
Cytoplasm would just have to be the area inside the house where everything happens.
The golgi apparatus is to do with activating proteins and enzymes and releasing them from the cell. I really can't think of an analogy.
Maybe I am thinking too deeply about this. When I saw your question I thought it was a great idea that I could use for my classes but I think a house is probably not the best analogy and it becomes unnecessarily complicated and confusing so I don't think I will.
Anyway, I hope your project goes well and that I haven't confused you even further!
Im Looking At Getting Solar Panels.
I Want To Get Solar Panels But Not Spend 20,000!! I Found Out That You Can Get A Panel To Run Only Your Ac Unit, I Also Found Something That Will Run My Pool Pump! Anyone Own Either Of These? How Did You Do? Where Did You Go? How Much Was It, And Was It Hard To Install?
Most major cities have construction signs and other public things powered by solar panels. We have parking meter stands, USGS meters, street lights, etc. when these lose efficiency, they need to be replaced. They still work at about 60 percent efficiency. Learn who services these items and ask how to get them at a reduced rate or even for free. Be personable and nice and go to the source physically, not via e-mail.
You can get a solar panel to run just about anything
What Are The Social Issues Concerning Solar Energy?
The cost is really the only drawback. But if you look at some of the benefits of solar energy, in thee near future, they should outweigh the costs.
Solar power is stored and can be used 24 hours a day. As a matter of fact there are many people that are doing that, today.
The amazing thing is that they are so easy to build now, and require such little maintenance that more and more people, everyday are taking the solar route. Most panels have can provide energy for almost 40 years. Now, that's some serious renewable energy we are talking about.
Another great advantage is that the government is also giving tax rebates to those who are using solar power in their homes. So, not only are you saving money every month from your electric company, but come tax season, you also get a nice little break when you are filling out your taxes.
The really amazing thing is that now you don't have to buy your expensive solar panels from the store. You can just build one nowadays. Even if you are not handy, this is something that anybody can, and should do.
Where Are All The Places That Solar Energy Go?
I'M Doing Some Science Homework, And I Have The Book, But It Doesnt Seem To Be Helping Me All That Much.. Thank You For The Help.
About 15 percent of the sun's energy that hits the earth is reflected back into space. Another 30 percent is used to evaporate water, which, lifted into the atmosphere, produces rainfall. Solar energy also is absorbed by plants, the land, and the oceans. The rest could be used to supply our energy needs.
What Funding/Grants Are Available For Energy Efficient Businesses?
I Would Like To Start A Privately Owned &Quot;Green&Quot; Business That Utilizes Energy Efficient Appliances And Solar Panel Energy. I Am Also A Woman Teaming Up With An Individual Of Minority Decent. I Know There Are Funding Possibilities For Such Things, But I Don'T Know Where To Start. Please Advise!
The grants given for businesses are for those who seek to research and discover renewable energy sources -- not for simply using environmentally friendly appliances and solar panel energy
It is hard to find grants to start a business. Unlike the myths that some perpetuate, federal government and even private foundations hardly give grant money for starting a for-profit business.
One possible exception is for companies developing or exporting agricultural goods, including food and forest product. Another exception could be the Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) or Small Business Technology Transfer (STTR) programs http://www.sba.gov/aboutsba/sbaprograms/... , which fund the research and development of technological innovation that meets specific government needs.
Your best bet actually will be from the states if they offer grant programs for women (or any other special interest groups -- minorities, women, disabled, veterans, etc). Or check with non profit organizations, particularly women organizations if they offer grants. Examples include
Iowa Women's Foundation http://www.iawf.org/
New Mexico Women's Foundation http://www.nmwf.org/guidelines.html
Even SBA does NOT give out grants. From the SBA website http://www.sba.gov/mostrequesteditems/CON_FAQ2.html
"The U.S. Small Business Administration does not offer grants to start or expand small businesses, although it does offer a wide variety of loan programs. (See http://www.sba.gov/financing for more information) While SBA does offer some grant programs, these are generally designed to expand and enhance organizations that provide small business management, technical, or financial assistance. These grants generally support non-profit organizations, intermediary lending institutions, and state and local governments."
Nonetheless, you can go to the Catalog of Federal Domestic Assistance (CFDA) http://www.cfda.gov and Grants.gov http://www.grants.gov - these are two sites created by the federal government to provide transparency and information on grants. Browse through the listings and see if you can find any grant that would support a for-profit venture.
Here is a listing of federal grants for small businesses. See if there is any available for individuals for starting a business -- THERE'S NONE.
Most of the federal grants are given to specific target groups with specific requirements (e.g. minority business owners involved in transportation related contracts emanating from DOT - Grant#20.905 Disadvantaged Business Enterprises Short Term Lending Program
Grants are also often given to non profit groups or organizations involved in training or other similar activities (grant 59.043 Women's Business Ownership Assistance that are given to those who will create women's business center that will train women entrepreneurs
