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 utilize the sun to power everyday life: running your a/c unit, cleaning clothing, viewing TV, cooking supper. All while decreasing your carbon footprint, and without burning fossil fuels or putting a stress on the electrical grid. And while the ecological benefits of solar power are considerable, lots of property owners find that the benefit, special functions, and cost savings of owning a solar power system are a lot more alluring.
Top 10 Benefits of Solar Energy
#1 Dramatically reduce or perhaps eliminate your electric expenses
Whether you're a house owner, business, or not-for-profit, electricity costs can comprise a big portion of your month-to-month expenditures. With a photovoltaic panel system, you'll create free power for your system's entire 25+ year lifecycle. Even if you don't produce One Hundred Percent of the energy you consume, solar will lower your energy costs and you'll still save a lot of cash.
#2 Make a terrific return on your financial 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 significant electrical power costs savings, the average American homeowner pays off their solar panel system in 7 to 8 years and sees an ROI of 20 percent or more.
#3 Safeguard versus increasing energy expenses
Among the most clear cut advantages of solar panels is the ability to hedge energy costs. In the past 10 years, domestic electrical power rates have actually increased by an average of three percent each year. By investing in a solar energy system now, you can repair your electrical power rate and protect against unpredictable increases in electrical energy expenses. If you're an organisation or house owner with fluctuating money flow, going solar also assists you better forecast and manage your expenses.
#4 Increase your home or business worth
Multiple research studies have found that homes geared up with solar energy systems have greater residential or commercial property values and sell quicker than non-solar homes. Appraisers are progressively taking solar setups into consideration as they value houses at the time of a sale, and as homebuyers end up being more informed about solar, need for homes equipped with solar panel systems will continue to grow.
#5 Increase U.S. energy self-reliance
The sun is a near-infinite source of energy and a key element of accomplishing energy independence in the United States. By increasing our capacity to create electrical power from the sun, we can also insulate our nation from price variations in global energy markets.
#6 Create jobs and assist your local economy
Inning accordance with The Solar Foundation, the solar market added jobs at a rate nearly 12 times faster than the total U.S. economy in 2015, representing 1.2 percent of all tasks in the country. This development is expected to continue. Since solar-related tasks tend to be greater 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 way to lower your carbon footprint. Buildings are accountable for 38 percent of all carbon emissions in the U.S., and going solar can considerably decrease that number. A typical residential solar panel system will get rid of 3 to four lots of carbon emissions each year-- the equivalent of planting over 100 trees annually.
#8 Demonstrate your commitment to sustainability
Sustainability and business social duty are very important elements of a company's culture and worths. They likewise produce bottom line outcomes. Progressively, consumers and neighborhoods are acknowledging and rewarding businesses that opt to operate properly. Companies are finding that "green" credentials are an effective chauffeur of consumer getting choices, producing goodwill and improving organisation results.
#9 Start Saving from Day 1
Solar purchase power arrangements (PPAs) and solar leasing has made it possible for property owners to go solar for little or no cash down.
Many property owners opt to fund their solar panels with one of the "pay-as-you-go" financing options. This implies that a third-party business-- the solar provider-- owns the planetary system and takes care of setup, maintenance, monitoring and repairs. You simply pay the solar service provider for electricity-- less than you would've paid the energy company.
As of June 2013, 75% of all American houses have access to pay-as-you-go solar.
#10. Solar is a Secure Investment
The energy companies are infamous for their changing and undependable electrical energy costs. There is plainly an upward pattern.
With photovoltaic panels and simple mathematics, we can compute just how much electrical power will be generated, and most notably, at exactly what price, for a minimum of the next 20 years (fixed energy expenses).
What are the various payment options?
We have many flexible purchasing agreements for customers who would like to install a new home solar system. There are three different payment options, making them a viable choice for customers of all budgets. The payment options include Lease, PPA, and Purchase.

Frequently Asked Questions
How Does Alternative Energy Benefit The Economy And The Environment?
Please Explain For Both:
Thanks In Advance :)
Alternative energy can be good for the environment and the economy several ways. Common sources of energy, especially in the developing world are based on the burning of fossil fuels. The byproduct of this process is a high output of Carbon into the air. It's been discovered that such emissions are primary causes for acid rain as their are incorporated into the cycle of precipitation and evaporation in neighboring region. This is called a negative externalities as it generates a negative effect on the regions surrounding the source of emissions. This has effects on industries from agriculture and forestry to fishing. This is a basic example, and I'm sure you could find many case-specific examples if you spent the time doing the research.
Alternative sources of energy like geothermal power, wind power, hydro power and solar power open the door to a whole new phase of expansion in the energy sector. Thousands of jobs can be created to thus help the economy. Energy trading between countries is one of the most profitable traded commodities, and generating energy through renewable (free) resources like wind and the sun can only be a positive if they increase the amount of energy available to be consumed and used.
Everything from appliances to cars require energy and as developing nations around the world become more advanced, the need for energy will only increase.
Essays can be written on this with many more examples.
What Has Renewable Energy Done For Us In The Past?
Over usuage of renewable energy resources have resulted in deforestation of our forest lands.
Hydroelectric energy has resulted in endangering the salmon due to dams built on water ways and polluting the rivers due to impounding the water.
Photovoltaic energy from solar cells is not a true "renewable" energy. It cost more in pollution to make the solar cells than the other sources of nonrenewable energy. The same is true of Wind Generators.
How Can I Convert My Homemade Solar Panel (15.3 Dcv And 3 Amp) To Ac?
I Made My Own Solar Panel At Home And Im Trying To Use It To Power An Ac Fan Or Something Small Like That. If You Have Any Tips Or Tricks Or Specific Inverters That Might Help Me Out, Let Me Know. Thank You
How did you measure the 15.3 volts and 3 amps? Do you mean 15.3 volts at 3 amps? Or do you mean 15.3 volts open circuit? If you haven't measured it under load, now is the time to do it.
Assuming you measured it under load, you have about 45 watts of power at the panel.
Motors draw more current at start up than they do while running. So you need 2-3 times the running current at start up.
Do you plan to use a battery? Or directly connect the panel to the inverter? Charging a suitable battery through a charge controller will give you a lot more stable results.
Consider getting a 12 volt fan (sold for truck/RV usage). This would avoid a number of potential headaches with the inverter idea. 15 watts or less is my guess. If the voltage runs too high you can always add a power resistor to drop the voltage.
But if you really want the AC, note the following:
-You lose power in the inverter. Probably quite a bit. An inverter draws power even if it isn't supplying power to anything.
-Any cheap inverter will probably act "squirrely" under under volt & over volt conditions. Hooking a panel directly to an inverter sounds like a recipe for problems.
Which Manufacturing Company(Not Installing Company) Makes The Best Solar Energy Panel?
i know you didn't ask about installing, so i apologize but thought i would point you towards this website that has a wealth of info and helps calculate how many panels, how much space is needed and other details, in case you didn't know of it. it is more centered towards installs though. i'm looking into this as well right now and found this site to be rather useful though.
How Is Convection, Percipitation And Fossil Fuels A Form Of Solar Energy?
fossil fuels were either vegetation or marine microbes. the energy in them, they got it from the sun and thats the energy in fossil fuels.
for precipitation cloud formation is necessary. clouds form because of water evaporating from the earth and evaporation is caused by solar energy. here the solar energy is converted into kinetic energy of water molecules. the KE is converted to potential energy when they form clouds. the pe is converted into the ke of rain or snow or hail during precipitation.
convection means a type of heat transfer. in the case of air, the particles of air obtain heat from the earths surface, heated by the SUN. then they move up(ke). then a low pressure is created which is filled by surrounding air and that is wind.
