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 utilize the sun to power daily life: running your a/c, cleaning clothes, watching TELEVISION, cooking dinner. All while minimizing your carbon footprint, and without burning nonrenewable fuel sources or putting a stress on the electrical grid. And while the environmental benefits of solar power are substantial, lots of residents find that the benefit, unique functions, and expense savings of owning a solar power system are much more alluring.
Top Ten Advantages of Solar Energy
#1 Drastically lower and even eliminate your electrical expenses
Whether you're a house owner, organization, or nonprofit, electrical power expenses can make up a big part of your month-to-month expenses. With a solar panel system, you'll generate complimentary 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 reduce your energy bills and you'll still conserve a lot of cash.
#2 Earn a fantastic return on your financial investment
Solar panels aren't an expenditure-- they're one of the finest ways to invest, with returns equaling those of more traditional financial investments like stocks and bonds. Thanks to considerable electricity expense cost savings, the average American property owner settles their solar panel system in 7 to eight years and sees an ROI of 20 percent or more.
#3 Secure against rising energy costs
One of the most clear cut advantages of photovoltaic panels is the capability to hedge utility rates. In the past 10 years, property electricity rates have actually gone up by an average of three percent annually. By buying a solar energy system now, you can fix your electrical power rate and protect against unforeseeable increases in electricity expenses. If you're an organisation or house owner with fluctuating cash circulation, going solar likewise helps you better projection and handle your expenditures.
#4 Boost your home value
Numerous studies have discovered that houses equipped with solar energy systems have higher residential or commercial property values and sell more quickly than non-solar homes. Appraisers are significantly taking solar setups into consideration as they value houses at the time of a sale, and as homebuyers become more educated about solar, demand for homes geared up with solar panel systems will continue to grow.
#5 Increase U.S. energy independence
The sun is a near-infinite source of energy and an essential component of accomplishing energy independence in the United States. By increasing our capability to create electrical power from the sun, we can also insulate our nation from rate changes in global energy markets.
#6 Create jobs and help your local economy
According to The Solar Structure, the solar market added tasks at a rate almost 12 times faster than the total U.S. economy in 2015, representing 1.2 percent of all jobs in the country. This development is anticipated to continue. Because solar-related tasks have the tendency to be greater paying and can not be contracted out, they are a substantial factor to the U.S. economy.
#7 Safeguard the environment
Solar is a fantastic method to minimize your carbon footprint. Structures are responsible for 38 percent of all carbon emissions in the U.S., and going solar can significantly reduce that number. A typical residential photovoltaic panel system will get rid of three to four lots of carbon emissions each year-- the equivalent of planting over 100 trees each year.

Sustainability and corporate social responsibility are essential parts of an organization's culture and values. They also produce bottom line outcomes. Progressively, customers and neighborhoods are acknowledging and rewarding businesses that opt to run responsibly. Businesses are discovering that "green" credentials are an effective driver of consumer purchasing decisions, producing goodwill and improving service outcomes.
#9 Start Saving from Day 1
Solar purchase power contracts (PPAs) and solar leasing has actually made it possible for house owners to go solar for little or no loan down.
Numerous property owners decide to fund their solar panels with one of the "pay-as-you-go" funding options. This implies that a third-party company-- the solar provider-- owns the planetary system and takes care of setup, upkeep, monitoring and repair works. You merely pay the solar provider for electrical energy-- less than you would've paid the utility company.
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 infamous for their changing and unreliable electrical energy rates. There is plainly an upward trend.
With solar panels and easy math, we can calculate just how much electricity will be created, and most notably, at what rate, for at least the next Twenty Years (fixed energy expenses).

Frequently Asked Questions
How Is Solar Energy Harnessed (Collected) ?
You can read about solar energy and how it is created and used here:
Which Energy Sources Will Still Be Available When You Are 70?
Solar, geo-thermal, wind, hydro, various fossil fuels, nuclear (fission and hopefully fusion by then), bio-waste fuels.
How Many Solar Panels Do I Need To Run A Pump?
I Plan To Buy Solar Panels Of The Following Configuration:
Sun Force 39110 / 123 Watt - 7 Amps
To Run Through An Inverter, To Produce The 110V I Need To Run The Pump During The Day.
The Pump Is 110V / 7.5 Amps / 0.5 Hp
My Question Is, How Many Solar Panels Would I Need To Run The Pump?
Are you sure you want those panels? It would probably be more cost-effective to get higher-wattage panels. From those specs, it sounds like you need about 800 watts of panels. That's 4 200-watt panels.
I would skip the inverter, and look for a pump that runs off DC. In fact, many AC motors will run off DC, although that's a trial-and-error sort of thing that no one will guarantee. Typically you would lower the voltage input to do so, so a 110-volt AC induction motor would run off maybe 70-80 volts DC, to avoid burning out the motor. But if you get a pump rated for DC, then you'll certainly have something that works right.
What Is A Distributed Resource?
What Is A Distributed Resource (In Terms Of The Environment) Vs A Point Source? I Know Biomass Is A Distributed Resource But What Is The Definition Of &Quot;Distributed Resource&Quot;?
Distributed resource would be an energy source that can be harnessed (effectively) in almost all corners of the world, and doesn't need special conditions to be cost-effective (for instance solar energy is only costs effective in areas with plenty of sun, wind energy in areas with plenty of wind, etc, while biomass, in its many forms, can be successfully harnessed in almost all parts of the world.
What Do You Think Of The Northern Cape?
What'S Your View Of The Northern Cape, With Regards To It'S People It'S Culture, And It'S Three Big Towns\Cities Kimberley,Kuruman And Upington Which Have More That Half The Northern Cape 'S Population And What Do You Think Is The Province'S Future And It'S Future Role In South Africa
I live in the Northern Cape, though not in any of the "big 3" cities.
Its anything but hot & dusty now - in fact it has been raining at least twice a week for months!
It will always have a low population.
Agriculture is the driver of the economy while mining is slowly becoming less significant as the mines close down when they are "mined out". I think it could become a major contributor to renewable energy in future - wind farms and solar energy - perhaps nuclear along the coast.
Karoo villages are becoming quite popular as "getaway" destinations for city folks from particularly the Western Cape - old cottages sell for high prices to these "city refugees".
