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 use the sun to power everyday life: running your ac system, cleaning clothes, viewing TV, cooking dinner. All while minimizing your carbon footprint, and without burning nonrenewable fuel sources or putting a pressure on the electrical grid. And while the environmental benefits of solar power are considerable, many property owners discover that the benefit, special features, and expense savings of owning a solar power system are even more alluring.
Top 10 Advantages of Solar Energy
#1 Dramatically minimize or perhaps eliminate your electric expenses
Whether you're a homeowner, service, or not-for-profit, electrical power costs can comprise a large portion of your month-to-month costs. With a photovoltaic panel system, you'll generate totally free power for your system's entire 25+ year lifecycle. Even if you do not produce One Hundred Percent of the energy you take in, solar will lower your utility costs and you'll still conserve a great deal of loan.
#2 Earn a terrific return on your financial investment
Solar panels aren't an expense-- they're one of the best ways to invest, with returns matching those of more standard financial investments like stocks and bonds. Thanks to significant electricity expense savings, the typical American property owner settles their photovoltaic panel system in 7 to 8 years and sees an ROI of 20 percent or more.
#3 Secure versus rising energy costs
One of the most clear cut benefits of photovoltaic panels is the capability to hedge energy costs. In the past 10 years, domestic electrical energy rates have increased by approximately 3 percent each year. By purchasing a solar energy system now, you can fix your electrical power rate and protect against unpredictable increases in electrical power costs. If you're a company or house owner with rising and falling money flow, going solar likewise helps you better forecast and manage your expenditures.
#4 Boost your home worth
Multiple studies have discovered that homes geared up with solar energy systems have greater property worths and sell faster than non-solar houses. Appraisers are significantly taking solar setups into consideration as they value houses at the time of a sale, and as property buyers end up being more informed about solar, demand 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 a crucial element of achieving energy independence in the United States. By increasing our capacity to create electrical energy from the sun, we can also insulate our nation from rate variations in international energy markets.
#6 Create jobs and help your regional economy
According to The Solar Foundation, the solar market added tasks at a rate nearly 12 times faster than the overall U.S. economy in 2015, representing 1.2 percent of all tasks in the country. This growth is anticipated to continue. Because solar-related tasks have the tendency 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 a great method to reduce your carbon footprint. Structures are accountable for 38 percent of all carbon emissions in the U.S., and going solar can considerably reduce that number. A normal residential solar panel system will remove three to four tons of carbon emissions each year-- the equivalent of planting over 100 trees every year.
#8 Demonstrate your dedication to sustainability
Sustainability and corporate social obligation are necessary components of a company's culture and worths. They likewise produce bottom line outcomes. Significantly, consumers and neighborhoods are acknowledging and rewarding companies that opt to operate properly. Services are finding that "green" qualifications are a powerful chauffeur of consumer getting choices, creating goodwill and improving company results.
#9 Start Saving from Day 1
Solar purchase power agreements (PPAs) and solar leasing has made it possible for homeowners to go solar for little or no money down.
Lots of homeowners choose to fund their photovoltaic panels with one of the "pay-as-you-go" funding choices. This implies that a third-party business-- the solar service provider-- owns the solar system and looks after installation, upkeep, tracking and repairs. You simply pay the solar service provider for electrical power-- less than you would've paid the energy company.
Since June 2013, 75% of all American homes have access to pay-as-you-go solar.
#10. Solar is a Secure Financial investment
The energy business are infamous for their varying and undependable electrical energy rates. There is clearly an upward pattern.
With solar panels and simple math, we can determine just how much electrical power will be created, and most significantly, at exactly what rate, for at least the next 20 years (repaired energy costs).

Frequently Asked Questions
What Are The Uses Of Solar Energy?
Hey Tiffany, the simple answer is that solar energy is used in two ways. First, we can heat things with it. Typically it's used to heat water for the home or business, or heat air, or some other medium, like glycol, that is used to heat something else up. In the desert, they are building solar farms that heat oil to 600 degrees, which is used to boil water and run steam turbines, ultimately generating electricity. The largest of these farms is being built in the Sahara Desert to produce electricity for Europe. The second way to harness solar energy is to make electricity directly with a, "Photovoltiac," panel. These panels use particles from the sun, called photons, to excite two different alloys of silicone and release electrons that can be used to charge batteries or run electrical devices directly. These were invented in the 60's for use in space, but are becoming common in remote homes, on boats, RV's and even in some cities now. These type solar panels are expensive, but can last 30 to 50 years without any maintenance.
We actually live in a home that is solar powered, has been for 10 years now. It still is not very common for people to generate their own solar power, but it will be one day. Did you know that in the United States, over 100,000 homes and businesses are using some level of solar energy right now, that's good news. If you really want to learn more, I would suggest going to the source, Solar Energy International. They are a non profit group that tracks the use of solar energy, tests new products, and teaches courses in the application of solar energy. There are some other excellent places to get information on solar power as well, I will give you a short list below, you can google any of them and check out their websites. Good luck Tiffany, and take care, Rudydoo
If I Want To Power A 500 Watt Air Conditioner, What Watt Solar Panel System Will I Need?
Depends on how long you run the A/C. Let's use 500W of panels as an example. Consider the fact that the panels are generating power at 500W rate for about 6 sun hours a day in the summer (depending on where you are). When you figure in losses, if you run it for 4 hours, 500W of panels may do it. 500W x 4 hours = 2000 watt hours (or 2kwh) needed, 500W panels x 6 sun hours -35% losses = 1950wh generated.
You can calculate how much you would need in panels and batteries on an off grid calculator like this, http://www.altestore.com/store/calculato... If you are planning on staying connected to the grid, but want to offset the amount of power the AC uses, you can go to a grid tied calculator like this, http://www.altestore.com/store/calculato...
Which Is Better Nuclear Of Solar Energy?
Plz, Give Your Opinion And A Reason Why?
Nuclear is a more thorough form of energy because its output is very dense. I support nuclear power as long as it's maintained properly and the plants adhere to all the regulations. Solar is much cleaner however. The problem with solar is that it's expensive, and the output you get is only 5%. It can't provide base-load generation. Maybe if it had 50% output, that would be one thing. I hope sometime in my lifespan solar will be that effective.
Where Can I Go (College), Or What Should I Major In To Study Solar Energy?
I Really Want To Study Solar Energy. What Would Be The Best Major, Or Where Is The Best University For Me To Do This. Thank You!

What Size/Strength Solar Panel Would I Require To Run An Ordinary Laptop?
I Have A Standard Laptop, I Think It Requires 110V To Run. If I'M Looking To Run The Computer For Around 5 Or 6 Hours A Day, What Size Or Strength (Ball Park Figure, As I'M Aware There Are Many Different Factors Relating To Power Consumption) Of Solar Panel I Would Need To Do This? If More Details Are Needed, Let Me Know. Thanks.
The 110 volts is normally converted down to 16 or 20 volts DC. If you have a 20 volt, 90 watt notebook that's about 4.5A of current needed to drive the components. Solar cells already output DC.
Most notebooks transform the 110V down to the 16V or 20V through the power pack attached to the AC cord. So the power port on the notebook is a DC input.
You would need to generate 540 watt-hours per day to sustain the notebook. You would need a sets of solar panels placed in parallel and then in series with other sets of solar panels.
If a set of four cells generates .45W x 1Hour = .45Watt-Hours then you need (540/.45) = 1200 4 set panels.
But this depends on the output of the solar panel.
You need to first create the voltage configuration to get 25volts. The two create the needed current you would place multiple voltage sets in parallel. This would run into a variable voltage controller and a current bypass circuit.
All of which needs to be on a fuse. You also need a heat sink on the voltage controller.
