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 resident to utilize the sun to power everyday life: running your ac system, washing clothes, viewing TV, cooking dinner. All while decreasing 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, many residents find that the convenience, unique functions, and expense savings of owning a solar power system are much more alluring.
Top Ten Benefits of Solar Energy
#1 Dramatically decrease or perhaps remove your electrical expenses
Whether you're a homeowner, company, or not-for-profit, electricity expenses can comprise a large part of your regular monthly expenses. With a photovoltaic panel system, you'll produce free power for your system's entire 25+ year lifecycle. Even if you don't produce 100 percent of the energy you consume, solar will reduce your utility costs and you'll still conserve a lot of money.
#2 Make a terrific return on your investment
Solar panels aren't an expense-- they are among the very best ways to invest, with returns matching those of more traditional investments like stocks and bonds. Thanks to considerable electrical power bill cost savings, the typical American homeowner settles their solar panel system in 7 to 8 years and sees an ROI of 20 percent or more.
#3 Protect against rising energy expenses
One of the most clear cut advantages of solar panels is the ability to hedge energy costs. In the past 10 years, residential electrical power costs have increased by an average of three percent annually. By buying a solar energy system now, you can repair your electricity rate and safeguard versus unforeseeable increases in electrical power expenses. If you're a business or homeowner with fluctuating capital, going solar also assists you better projection and handle your expenses.

Appraisers are progressively taking solar installations into factor to consider as they value homes at the time of a sale, and as homebuyers end up being more educated about solar, demand for homes equipped 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 crucial part of achieving energy independence in the United States. By increasing our capacity to generate electricity from the sun, we can likewise insulate our country from rate changes in global energy markets.
#6 Develop jobs and help your local economy
According to The Solar Foundation, the solar market added jobs at a rate nearly 12 times faster than the general U.S. economy in 2015, representing 1.2 percent of all tasks in the nation.

#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 money down.
Numerous house owners choose to fund their solar panels with one of the "pay-as-you-go" funding alternatives. This suggests that a third-party business-- the solar company-- owns the planetary system and looks after setup, maintenance, monitoring and repairs. You just 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 energy companies are notorious for their fluctuating and unreliable electrical power costs. There is clearly an upward pattern.
With photovoltaic panels and basic math, we can calculate how much electricity will be created, and most significantly, at what cost, for at least the next Twenty Years (fixed energy expenses).

How Is Solar Energy Created And Sent To Earth?
I Need Answers Asap Please!!!
Solar energy are results of fast nuclear reactions on the sun emiting great amount of heat and light energy. Heat energy radiates.
How Does Solar Energy Make Food?
solar energy doesnt make food
plants (phototroph) use the energy from sunlight to convert carbon dioxide and water into organic material to be utilized in cellular functions such as biosynthesis and respiration which then being consumed by animals. so animals are always consumers and plants are producers of energy
How To Find The Solar Energy?
I Need Help With My Chemistry...The Question Is The Average Solar Energy Received By A Horizontal Surface In The Summer In Springfield Is 3.5 X 10^ J/M^2 Hour. If A Home Has A Solar Panel With Dimensions 10.0 M By 25.0M How Many Joules Of Energy Will This Panel Absorb Over 8 Points....Please Help And Explain The Answer Or How U Did It
You have J/(m^2 hr). To get to J (ie energy) you want to multiply by something with units m^2 and hr (area and time)
If we assume the panel is rectangular you have data to work out its area and you're given time.
3.5*10^a * 10*25 * 8
a being the unknown exponent which you didn't put in the question
What Are Some Current Places Where Solar Energy Thermal (Heat) Is Being Used?
Google Is Being A Crappy Helper.
Solar thermal can be used to generate electricity in large power plants, or can be used to capture heat for water and space heating. Here's a good site on solar thermal electricity, http://www.ecoworld.com/energy-fuels/sol... I'm using solar thermal in New England to heat my domestic water for showers and washing, as well as to heat my house. Here's a description of it, http://www.altestore.com/gallery/Amy-Bea... It can be used to heat the water for radiant floors, or heat the air in forced hot air systems.
Solar thermal is used all around the world. China is the largest user of solar water heating, with Japan, Germany, Israel all closer behind. It is now required by law in Hawaii for new construction to install slar water heating, since it saves so much power instead of using electricity to heat water.
