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 daily life: running your ac system, washing clothes, viewing TELEVISION, cooking dinner. All while decreasing your carbon footprint, and without burning fossil fuels or putting a stress on the electrical grid. And while the ecological advantages of solar power are substantial, numerous residents discover that the convenience, special features, and cost savings of owning a solar power system are a lot more enticing.
Top Ten Advantages of Solar Energy
#1 Dramatically minimize or perhaps eliminate your electrical costs
Whether you're a homeowner, company, or not-for-profit, electricity expenses can make up a large part of your month-to-month expenses. With a solar panel system, you'll generate totally 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 decrease your utility expenses and you'll still save a great deal of cash.
#2 Earn a terrific return on your investment
Photovoltaic panels aren't a cost-- they're one of the very best methods to invest, with returns matching those of more traditional financial investments like stocks and bonds. Thanks to significant electricity costs savings, the typical American homeowner settles their photovoltaic panel system in seven to 8 years and sees an ROI of 20 percent or more.
#3 Safeguard against rising energy expenses
One of the most clear cut advantages of solar panels is the ability to hedge energy prices. In the previous ten years, property electrical energy rates have increased by an average of three percent every year. By buying a solar energy system now, you can fix your electrical power rate and secure against unpredictable boosts in electrical power costs. If you're an organisation or homeowner with ever-changing capital, going solar also assists you better forecast and manage your costs.
#4 Boost your home or business worth
Multiple studies have actually found that homes geared up with solar energy systems have higher residential or commercial property values and sell faster than non-solar houses. Appraisers are progressively taking solar installations 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 geared up with photovoltaic panel systems will continue to grow.
#5 Boost U.S. energy self-reliance
The sun is a near-infinite source of energy and a key part of achieving energy independence in the United States. By increasing our capacity to produce electrical power from the sun, we can likewise insulate our nation from price variations in global energy markets.
#6 Develop jobs and help your regional 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 jobs in the nation. This development is expected to continue. Since solar-related tasks tend to be higher paying and can not be contracted out, they are a considerable factor to the United States economy.
#7 Safeguard the environment
Solar is a fantastic method to decrease your carbon footprint. Structures are accountable for 38 percent of all carbon emissions in the U.S., and going solar can considerably decrease that number. A typical property photovoltaic panel system will eliminate 3 to four lots of carbon emissions each year-- the equivalent of planting over 100 trees yearly.

Increasingly, customers and communities are acknowledging and rewarding businesses that select to operate responsibly. Companies are discovering that "green" credentials are an effective driver of customer getting choices, developing goodwill and enhancing company outcomes.
#9 Start Saving from Day 1
Solar purchase power agreements (PPAs) and solar leasing has made it possible for house owners to go solar for little or no loan down.
Numerous property owners opt to finance their solar panels with among the "pay-as-you-go" funding alternatives. This implies that a third-party business-- the solar company-- owns the solar system and takes care of installation, upkeep, tracking and repair works. You just pay the solar service 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 Financial investment
The utility companies are notorious for their fluctuating and undependable electricity rates. There is plainly an upward trend.
With photovoltaic panels and basic math, we can determine how much electrical power will be created, and most importantly, at what price, for at least the next 20 years (fixed energy expenses).

Frequently Asked Questions
Can You Depend On Solar Energy?
Say I Was Living In The Remote Wilderness And Was Growing Vegetables And Using Solar Energy To Power The Lamps During The Winter. Could I Depend On Solar Panels Alone To Work 12-14 Hrs A Day Without Any Hiccups What So Ever For 2-3 Months At A Time?
There's no place on earth that gets 12-14 hours of sun in the winter. The best you could do is about 12 hours, at the equator.
But with enough land and enough solar panels, anything is possible. You could have enough batteries to last through a few days of clouds and rain, or more likely, would learn to live without electricity during dark periods.
Is There A Way To Charge Deep Cycle Batteries With Free Energy Besides Solar?
I Want To Set Up Some Rechargeable Batteries To Allow For Lighting And A Small Refrigerator. I Don'T Want To Use Solar To Charge Them. Is There Another Easy Way To Keep Them Charged With Free Energy?
There is no such thing as free energy. Even human powered devices to produce electricity require calories, and that cost money for the foods. It costs more for the food for human energy to generate the electricity than to plug into the grid.
Some people get mad at me but if you do the math, you will find it costs more to human power than plug into the grid.
Hope this helps
Would It Be A Good Alternative To Generate Solar Energy In Los Angeles? Why Or Why Not?
Depends on what your interpretation of generating solar energy in Los Angeles is. Are we talking rooftop solar on houses and buildings or some kind of large scale solar facility? Encouraging rooftop solar is a good idea. Trying to put a large scale facility isn't, cost of real estate being first and foremost among the reasons why.
What Specific Topic Should I Narrow In On For My Solar Energy Analytical Report For College?
I Chose To Do A Analytical Report On Solar Energy In America For Producing Electricity.(Or Maybe A Certain State Or 2) . At First I Was Going To Compare Solar Energy To Other Sources, Then I Figured That Goes Too Deep And Actually Discredits Solar Energy Almost Since It Acquires Less Than 1 Percent Of Production Of Electricity. My Report Is A 2800 Word Report. I Was Then Thinking About Comparing Solar Technologies From Say 10 Years Ago To Now... Yet When I Do Research It Gets Way To Technically Over My Head To Understand. Please Help Me, Im So Confused And This Is Due In 5 Days. I Keep Changing Topics And Just Need To Narrow In On One Topic And Dedicate To It. Also Sources Have Been Hard To Come By That Are Recent And Not Contradictory To Other Sites. Any Topics And Credible Sites You Can Give Me I Would Be So Appreciative. Thank You So Much.
Comparing solar to other energy sources does not denigrate it because of the % it contributes to the grid. You are confused by contribution vs source. Compare the inputs and outputs of other energy sources to solar. For example coal requires expensive and dangerous mining, shipping (input), burning (extreme pollution - output). So do that for coal, oil etc and you will find that solar is one of the ways to go. Good luck - do the work.
How Can We Store Solar Energy?
If you are willing to wait millions of years you can store it in coal and oil, or if you can't wait that long you could take advantage of it being stored naturally in the wind and the waves.
If you want to store energy from a solar water heater the best means currently available is a large hot water tank, or for a solar cell an electric battery.
