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 house owners to use the sun to power everyday life: running your a/c unit, washing clothes, viewing TV, cooking supper. All while reducing your carbon footprint, and without burning fossil fuels or putting a strain on the electrical grid. And while the environmental benefits of solar power are significant, many residents find that the convenience, unique functions, and expense savings of owning a solar power system are a lot more enticing.
Top 10 Benefits of Solar Energy
#1 Dramatically minimize or even remove your electrical expenses
Whether you're a homeowner, business, or not-for-profit, electrical energy costs can make up a big portion of your regular monthly expenses. With a solar panel system, you'll create 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 reduce your utility expenses and you'll still save a great deal of loan.
#2 Make a fantastic return on your investment
Photovoltaic panels aren't a cost-- they are among the best ways to invest, with returns rivaling those of more traditional financial investments like stocks and bonds. Thanks to considerable electricity bill savings, the average American property owner settles their solar panel system in seven to eight years and sees an ROI of 20 percent or more.
#3 Protect against increasing energy costs
Among the most clear cut advantages of photovoltaic panels is the ability to hedge utility costs. In the previous 10 years, residential electricity prices have actually gone up by an average of 3 percent yearly. By purchasing a solar energy system now, you can repair your electrical energy rate and protect versus unpredictable boosts in electricity costs. If you're an organisation or house owner with rising and falling capital, going solar likewise assists you better forecast and manage your expenses.
#4 Boost your home or business value
Numerous research studies have found that homes geared up with solar energy systems have greater residential or commercial property worths and sell faster than non-solar homes. Appraisers are increasingly taking solar setups into factor to consider as they value houses at the time of a sale, and as homebuyers become more educated about solar, need for homes equipped with photovoltaic panel systems will continue to grow.
#5 Increase U.S. energy independence
The sun is a near-infinite source of energy and an essential part of accomplishing energy independence in the United States. By increasing our capacity to produce electrical energy from the sun, we can also insulate our country from rate variations in worldwide energy markets.
#6 Develop jobs and assist your local economy
Inning accordance with The Solar Structure, the solar industry added jobs at a rate nearly 12 times faster than the overall U.S. economy in 2015, representing 1.2 percent of all jobs in the nation. This growth is anticipated to continue. Because solar-related jobs tend to be higher paying and can not be contracted out, they are a substantial factor to the United States economy.
#7 Protect the environment
Solar is an excellent 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 typical residential solar panel system will eliminate three to 4 loads of carbon emissions each year-- the equivalent of planting over 100 trees annually.
#8 Show your dedication to sustainability
Sustainability and business social responsibility are important parts of a company's culture and worths. They likewise produce bottom line outcomes. Increasingly, customers and communities are recognizing and rewarding services that opt to operate responsibly. Organisations are finding that "green" credentials are a powerful driver of customer acquiring decisions, developing goodwill and enhancing service results.
#9 Start Conserving from Day 1
Solar purchase power agreements (PPAs) and solar leasing has actually made it possible for homeowners to go solar for little or no loan down.
Many house owners opt to fund their solar panels with one of the "pay-as-you-go" financing alternatives. This indicates that a third-party company-- the solar company-- owns the planetary system and takes care of setup, maintenance, monitoring and repair works. You simply pay the solar supplier for electricity-- less than you would've paid the utility 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 companies are infamous for their varying and unreliable electrical energy costs. There is plainly an upward trend.
With solar panels and simple math, we can compute what does it cost? electricity will be produced, and most notably, at exactly what price, for at least the next 20 years (repaired energy costs).

Frequently Asked Questions
What Are Their Function?
In Aspace Station, What Is The Thermal Control Module And Solar Panels Used For?
What Is Their Purpose And How Do They Function?
Solar panels furnish electricity. Thermal control, controls the temperature, so people and equipment don't get too cold or too hat.
Where Do You Get Little Solar Panels?
I Am Working On A Project Which Requires Small Solar Panels. I Am Looking For Ones About 3X4. Is There Any Way I Could Get These? And Where?
Thin-film solar panels are a great way to go if you're looking for small solar panels.
Thin-film have the advantage of being lighter while a traditional crystalline panel is more efficient so it can produce more power with the same area.
With the increasing efficiency of thin-film solar panels, however, they are quickly becoming an excellent option for portable power solutions.
If you want crystalline panels instead of thin-film, the DURAlite line is a good example of a portable solar panel that uses regular polycrystalline solar cells. DURAlite panels come in 5, 10, or 20 Watts and they have a 10' cable with a 12-volt car-style socket plug.
How Many Solar Panels Are In A Certain Market? Where Can I Find This?
I Need To Know How Many Residential Homes Have Solar Panels In Fresno, Ca. Where Can I Find This Information?
Prior to 2007, the California Energy Comission administered the rebates, and you could actually download information from them on the individual rebate applications. It would theoretically be possible to mine the information out of that by zip code, but perhaps they already have the information sorted.
Now the rebates go through http://www.gosolarcalifornia.ca.gov/ , I think, and maybe they have information for you.
Another way would be to contact the top 3-5 solar installers in the area, and ask how many they've put in.
Finally, if you have no other choice, you could always to go Google Maps, satellite view, and take a sampling of how many houses have panels within (say) a square mile, then scale up for an approximation.
What Are The Calculations I Have To Make To Buy The Right Motor And Solar Panel For A Small Boat?
The Boat (8 Feet X 4 Feet X 1 Feet Approximately) Will Move Around 50-100Lb, Speed = 6 Miles/Hr (One, Two Or Three Propelled Motors Of 12 V, But How Many Watts?, How Many Ma?, What About Torque? I Mean The Load That The Motors Will Have To Move?, I Want That The Batterias Get Their Charge From A Solar Panel, That Will Have To Provide Me How Many Volts?, How Many Watts?, How Many Ma?, Is This Project Possible?, Or Would I Too Much Solar Cells?, Please Help With The Calculations? Thanks
Normally a boat like that would be fitted with up to a 4hp outboard.
1hp = 750w (approx.), so you're looking for up to 3kw of power.
3kw from a 12v battery will draw a maximum of 250A.
After that you need to decide how many hours a day you need to use the boat for in order to decide your battery capacity; they'll need to be deep-cycle batteries which you can discharge heavily and the battery supplier can tell you the charging rates suited to your chosen batteries which in turn determines the size and type of solar panels which you use. In any case, your project is only likely to be fully solar-powered if you live in a sunny climate and have a large solar canopy on your boat. Or you could be inventive and tow the solar panels behind on a pontoon to minimise drag and keep the boat from being top-heavy. If the pontoon also carried some or all of the batteries then your most expensive parts will be on a separate module which can be safely stored away from the boat and you'll also be able to experiment with different battery packs and solar panel combos. It also allows you to have one power pontoon on charge (possibly even a mains top-up) whilst the other is in use.
When you calculate the daily running time you'll need to guesstimate the percentage of the time you'll be running at full-throttle. If it's close to 100% then it's a good idea to add 50% to your running time: this not only gives you a safety margin but it also prolongs battery life and compensates for the fall-off in charge capacity which the batteries will suffer over time. If you're only at full throttle 25% of the time and around 50% for the rest then you don't really need to add a margin.
Diy Solar Panels? From Scratch?
I Have Seen A Lot Of Diy Information On Making Your Own Solar Panels. I Have Even Purchased A Couple Of Them. However, They Have Not Been Very Helpful In The Fact That They Either Call For Buying Tons Of Broken Peices And Putting Them Together, Or Buying Each Cell And Building The Frame, And Wiring It Together. I Have A 14'X60' Mobile Home With The Flat Roof On It. It Is In Full Sunlight 3/4 Of Every Day. I Am Looking For An Inexpensive Way To Build My Own Solar Panel Using The Entire Roof. I Am Not Looking For The Most Efficient, Because I Have Plenty Of Size To Work With. I Do Not Have A Lot Of Electrical Needs. I Am On Some Medical Machines Though, If It Werent For Them I Would Probably Just Let The Electric Go And Buy A Propane Fridge And Stove And Call It Good. I Do Not Want To Spend A Bunch Of Money On Books Either So Please No Advertisements On Where To Buy Books On This Subject. I Have Very Little Resources In The Way Of Money Or Else I Would Just Pay The Electric Bill, My Electric Company Is 1/4 Renewable Energy Anyway. So If Anyone Knows Of A Way To Build This, Or Knows Where I Can Get A Book Or Website For Free. Please Let Me Know. Thank You,
Instead of trying to make your own solar panels from old parts that may or may not work I would suggest you look for applications where solar panels are presently used on a temporary basis and then not recycled. Consider some place where a battery needs to be kept charged while being shipped and then not afterwords.
Alternatively you should be looking for overstocked or out of date units. None of this may be easy to find. You will be paying in effort what you don't pay out of your pocket.
If you can't come up with any possibilities then send me an email.
