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 everyday life: running your air conditioner, washing clothes, viewing TELEVISION, cooking dinner. All while minimizing your carbon footprint, and without burning fossil fuels or putting a stress on the electrical grid. And while the environmental benefits of solar power are considerable, many home owners discover that the benefit, special features, and expense savings of owning a solar power system are a lot more enticing.
Top 10 Benefits of Solar Energy
#1 Dramatically reduce and even remove your electric expenses
Whether you're a property owner, business, or nonprofit, electrical power expenses can comprise a large part of your regular monthly costs. With a solar panel system, you'll produce 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 expenses and you'll still conserve a lot of money.
#2 Earn a great return on your financial investment
Solar panels aren't an expenditure-- they are among the very best methods to invest, with returns matching those of more traditional financial investments like stocks and bonds. Thanks to considerable electrical power expense savings, the typical American homeowner pays off their photovoltaic panel system in 7 to eight years and sees an ROI of 20 percent or more.
#3 Protect against increasing energy expenses
Among the most clear cut benefits of photovoltaic panels is the ability to hedge energy rates. In the previous 10 years, property electricity prices have increased by an average of three percent annually. By investing in a solar energy system now, you can fix your electrical power rate and protect against unforeseeable increases in electrical power costs. If you're a company or house owner with fluctuating capital, going solar also assists you better projection and manage your expenditures.
#4 Boost your residential or commercial property value
Numerous research studies have 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 increasingly taking solar setups into factor to consider as they value houses at the time of a sale, and as property buyers become more informed about solar, need for homes 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 a crucial element of attaining energy independence in the United States. By increasing our capacity to generate electrical energy from the sun, we can likewise insulate our country from rate fluctuations in international energy markets.
#6 Develop jobs and assist your regional economy
Inning accordance with The Solar Foundation, the solar industry included 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 expected to continue. Due to the fact that solar-related jobs have the tendency to be greater paying and can not be contracted out, they are a substantial contributor to the United States economy.
#7 Safeguard the environment
Solar is a fantastic way to reduce your carbon footprint. Buildings are responsible for 38 percent of all carbon emissions in the United States, and going solar can substantially reduce that number. A common residential solar panel system will eliminate 3 to 4 tons of carbon emissions each year-- the equivalent of planting over 100 trees every year.
#8 Demonstrate your commitment to sustainability
Sustainability and business social duty are very important components of an organization's culture and values. They likewise produce bottom line outcomes. Significantly, customers and communities are acknowledging and rewarding businesses that opt to run properly. Organisations are finding that "green" qualifications are a powerful chauffeur of customer acquiring choices, creating goodwill and improving organisation outcomes.
#9 Start Conserving from Day 1
Solar purchase power contracts (PPAs) and solar leasing has made it possible for house owners to go solar for little or no loan down.
Lots of property owners select to finance their photovoltaic panels with one of the "pay-as-you-go" funding options. This means that a third-party business-- the solar company-- owns the solar system and takes care of installation, maintenance, tracking and repair works. You merely pay the solar company for electricity-- less than you would've paid the energy business.
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 companies are notorious for their changing and undependable electrical power rates. There is clearly an upward pattern.
With photovoltaic panels and simple math, we can calculate how much electrical energy will be produced, and most importantly, at what price, for at least the next 20 years (repaired energy costs).

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.
