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 use the sun to power everyday life: running your air conditioning unit, washing clothing, seeing TV, cooking dinner. All while reducing your carbon footprint, and without burning nonrenewable fuel sources or putting a strain on the electrical grid. And while the ecological benefits of solar power are considerable, many home owners find that the convenience, special features, and expense savings of owning a solar power system are a lot more enticing.
Top Ten Benefits of Solar Energy

Even if you do not produce 100 percent of the energy you take in, solar will decrease your energy costs and you'll still save a great deal of cash.
#2 Make a terrific return on your financial investment
Photovoltaic panels aren't an expense-- they're one of the finest ways to invest, with returns rivaling those of more conventional investments like stocks and bonds. Thanks to significant electrical power bill cost savings, the typical American house owner pays off their solar panel system in seven to eight years and sees an ROI of 20 percent or more.
#3 Safeguard versus rising energy costs
One of the most clear cut advantages of photovoltaic panels is the ability to hedge utility prices. In the past 10 years, property electrical power costs have actually increased by approximately 3 percent every year. By investing in a solar energy system now, you can repair your electrical energy rate and protect against unpredictable boosts in electrical power expenses. If you're a company or property owner with changing money flow, going solar likewise assists you better projection and manage your costs.

Appraisers are increasingly taking solar setups into factor to consider as they value homes at the time of a sale, and as property buyers end up being more educated about solar, need for properties equipped with solar panel systems will continue to grow.
#5 Boost U.S. energy self-reliance
The sun is a near-infinite source of energy and an essential component of attaining energy independence in the United States. By increasing our capacity to generate electrical power from the sun, we can also insulate our country from rate variations in worldwide energy markets.
#6 Develop jobs and help your regional economy
According to The Solar Foundation, the solar market included jobs at a rate almost 12 times faster than the total U.S. economy in 2015, representing 1.2 percent of all jobs in the nation. This development is anticipated to continue. Because solar-related jobs have the tendency to be higher paying and can not be outsourced, they are a significant factor to the United States economy.

Lots of property owners opt to fund their photovoltaic panels with among the "pay-as-you-go" funding choices. This indicates that a third-party business-- the solar supplier-- owns the planetary system and looks after setup, maintenance, tracking and repair works. You simply pay the solar supplier for electricity-- less than you would've paid the energy business.
As of June 2013, 75% of all American homes have access to pay-as-you-go solar.
#10. Solar is a Secure Investment
The utility business are infamous for their changing and unreliable electricity costs. There is clearly an upward pattern.

Frequently Asked Questions
How Much Does It Cost To Install Solar Panels At Home?
My Family Is Really &Quot;Green&Quot; When It Comes To Our Lifestyle. I Just Need To Know How Much It Would Cost For Solar Panels To Provide Our Electricity. How Many Would One House Need? Do They Charge By The Panel?
It is not that simple. You need panels, batteries to store the energy, an inverter. Your usage can be figured out by a professional who will ask you questions about your lifestyle to figure out your average usage, determining your panel/battery needs. You cannot run any high usage items such as electric dryers or electric stoves, or electric furnace (depending on where you live). There are a lot of variables. You will be looking at around $20-30000 per average 4 person household.
Where To Buy Solar Panels?
I'M Hypothetically Speaking But How Would I Go About Converting My House Into One That Runs On Solar Panels?
Does Anybody Have Any Links To Information On Photovoltaic Panels Or Links To Companies That Actually Sell Them, Not Just Talk About Them And Give U A &Quot;Quote&Quot;? Thanks
First you have to figure out how much electricity is needed to run your house. Check your electric bills for the last year, figure out an average KWH/ day and the maximum KWH/day used in the year.
Your normal solar system can only generate usable electricity for less than 8 hours a day in the summer and 5 hours a day in the winter. Varies some as you move farther north and how many cloudy days you have. Example Tucson AZ is considered an ideal climate for solar power and has 7.42 sun hours per day maximum and 6.01 sun hours per day minimum (winter) with an average of 6.57 sun hours per day This means an average of 6.5 hours per day of usable solar electricity. Do a search on " Insolation chart " to find your area.
Anyway a half decent price for a 1.9 KW system which produces approximately 12KWH per day is around $13,000 un-installed. Add the cost of the installation and the fact that 12 KWH per day is not enough to reduce your bill to zero and a typical whole house system will cost around $80,000 without installation and without battery backups for nighttime electricity.

What Is The Best Solar Panel To Buy?
I am assuming you are talking about photovoltaic panels, not solar thermal?
If you do plan on buying one, and not building one yourself, then there are only a few things you need to consider to compare panels. Most solar panels are very very similar. They almost all offer the same guarantee (25 years material & workmanship, declining power guarantee). There are only one or two or three things that differentiate one from the other.
First, look at the cost per watt of rated power. Now, you are never going to get the rated power out of your panel - just like you won't get your rated MPG on your car - but it will let you know which panels give you most bang for the buck.
Second, if you are hoping to get a rebate or incentive on your panels, make sure that they are on the qualified list of panels that are eligible for a rebate.
Third, check out the "power tolerance" and look for one that is as low as possible. 10% is high. 5% is okay. 2% is great. This tells you how much more or less than the rating your panel can provide. If you buy a 100 watt panel with a 10% tolerance, then your panel is considered acceptable by the manufacturer if it puts out anything over 90 watts.
Finally, the best panel to buy may be the one you can get your hands on. Right now, there is a tremendous panel shortage. My suppliers are telling me that if I want a large quantity of matched panels I will need to wait until at least this fall. They just can't make them fast enough right now.
What Can I Do For The Environment With A Flat 25M Square Roof?
I Can Get Up There By Ladder, But Don'T Like Doing So Too Much. Any Suggestions?
Garden although that would need you to go up a lot.
Solar panels, they may be expensive but.. they are worth it
Collect rain water, this would be good for the garden, you could make a watering system.
What Is A Good Website To Purchase Solar Panels And The Equipment To Connect It To A Home.?
Solar Panel Systems Are Something I Would Like To Install And Would Like To Know Where To Buy Quality Systems Online Or Anywhere Near Kansas.
Go to SOLAR PANELS on the Internet. You will find all sorts of suppliers. If you plan to get a rebate from any government agency, probably they will have a list of approved equipments.
Forget batteries if you will be on the grid, unless you really must have power during utility outages. Buy as big a system as you can afford. At least have as many panels as the inverter can utilize
