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 air conditioning unit, washing clothes, enjoying TELEVISION, cooking dinner. All while decreasing your carbon footprint, and without burning nonrenewable fuel sources or putting a pressure on the electrical grid. And while the environmental advantages of solar power are considerable, lots of residents discover that the benefit, unique functions, and expense savings of owning a solar power system are much more enticing.
Top Ten Benefits of Solar Energy
#1 Significantly reduce or perhaps remove your electric costs
Whether you're a homeowner, business, or not-for-profit, electrical power costs can make up a big portion of your regular monthly expenses. With a photovoltaic panel system, you'll generate free power for your system's whole 25+ year lifecycle. Even if you don't produce One Hundred Percent of the energy you consume, solar will reduce your utility expenses and you'll still save a great deal of cash.
#2 Earn a great return on your financial investment
Photovoltaic panels aren't an expense-- they're one of the finest methods to invest, with returns measuring up to those of more traditional investments like stocks and bonds. Thanks to considerable electricity expense cost savings, the average American homeowner settles their solar panel system in 7 to 8 years and sees an ROI of 20 percent or more.
#3 Secure versus rising energy expenses
One of the most clear cut benefits of photovoltaic panels is the capability to hedge energy rates. In the previous 10 years, property electrical energy prices have increased by approximately 3 percent every year. By investing in a solar energy system now, you can repair your electricity rate and secure versus unforeseeable increases in electrical energy expenses. If you're a service or house owner with ever-changing cash flow, going solar likewise helps you much better forecast and handle your expenses.
#4 Increase your home worth
Multiple studies have found that houses geared up with solar energy systems have higher property worths and offer quicker than non-solar homes. Appraisers are progressively taking solar installations into consideration as they value houses at the time of a sale, and as homebuyers become more informed about solar, need for residential or commercial properties equipped with solar panel systems will continue to grow.
#5 Boost U.S. energy independence
The sun is a near-infinite source of energy and a crucial part of accomplishing energy independence in the United States. By increasing our capacity to produce electrical energy from the sun, we can likewise insulate our country from cost fluctuations in global energy markets.
#6 Create jobs and assist your regional economy
According to The Solar Structure, the solar market added jobs at a rate almost 12 times faster than the general U.S. economy in 2015, representing 1.2 percent of all tasks in the nation. This development is expected to continue. Since solar-related tasks have the tendency to be higher paying and can not be outsourced, they are a considerable factor to the United States economy.
#7 Protect the environment
Solar is a fantastic way to lower your carbon footprint. Buildings are accountable for 38 percent of all carbon emissions in the United States, and going solar can substantially reduce that number. A normal domestic solar panel system will remove 3 to four loads of carbon emissions each year-- the equivalent of planting over 100 trees each year.
#8 Show your dedication to sustainability
Sustainability and corporate social obligation are essential components of a company's culture and values. They also produce bottom line results. Significantly, customers and neighborhoods are recognizing and rewarding businesses that decide to run properly. Organisations are discovering that "green" credentials are a powerful motorist of customer buying choices, creating goodwill and enhancing business outcomes.
#9 Start Saving from Day 1
Solar purchase power contracts (PPAs) and solar leasing has actually made it possible for property owners to go solar for little or no loan down.
Lots of property owners select to fund their photovoltaic panels with one of the "pay-as-you-go" funding choices. This means that a third-party company-- the solar provider-- owns the planetary system and takes care of installation, upkeep, monitoring and repair works. You just pay the solar provider for electricity-- less than you would've paid the energy company.
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 well-known for their fluctuating and unreliable electrical power costs. There is plainly an upward pattern.
With photovoltaic panels and basic mathematics, we can compute what does it cost? electrical power will be created, and most notably, at exactly what cost, for a minimum of the next Twenty Years (fixed energy costs).

Frequently Asked Questions
What'S Up With My Solar Panel?
I Have (2) 22010 Sunlinq Solar Panels And I Decided To Try One Out Today. Each Is Rated At 12W 12V 800Ma. My Batteries In My Xbox Controller Ran Out So I Figured I Would Charge Them With My Solar Panel. I Had Good Sun This Morning. When I Hooked Everything Together The 'Ready' Light Was Lit For About 10 Seconds, Then The 'Charge' Lights In Both Bays Of My Charger Began Blinking. I Switched The Batteries To The Other Bay, But Got The Same Result So I Took Them Inside And Plugged The Same Charger And Batteries Into The Wall Outlet And They Started Charging And Finally Finished. I Tested My Solar Panel In Good Morning Sun And Got 15+ Volts. Does That Sound Probable? I Bought Some Expensive Rechargeable Batteries And Would Like Them Not To Be Destroyed. I Read The Instructions That Came With The Charger And It Says It Has A Bad Cell Detection Feature And Will Flash The 'Charge' Lights When A Bad Battery Is Detected. But They Work Fine When Plugged Into The Wall Outlet. I Am A Novice In The Area So Any Help Is Appreciated.
How were you connecting your batteries to the solar panels? If you were connecting them directly to the 12V output from the panels you were probably overloading the panels and causing the voltage to drop. You could probably charge 10 NiMH or NiCd batteries in series. The voltage of the batteries would add up to 12 volts and be fairly compatible with your solar cells. If you connected them in parallel so the voltage of the batteries were still 1.2 volts and could easily take far more than the 800 mA your solar panels put out. This would cause the voltage from the solar panels to drop and the panels would assume a bad battery and blink the warning.
How Effective Are Solar Panels Now In N E With Our 40&Quot;+ Snowfall This Month?
How Does The Snow Cover Get Removed From The Panels?
Just as there are three types of solar panels there are three answers + to your question. For solar photovoltaic panels that are used to make electricity the fine print that comes with the panels says that you have to remove the snow from the panels in order for them to work. There are actually rakes made for this purpose. http://www.roofrake.com/Productpages/sno... As an aside the efficiency of the panels will also be maintained if the panels are cleaned of dust and debris. The maintenance of removing snow and dust is one argument for having the panels on a rack on the ground.
Solar Thermal panels are intended to capture the sun's heat. Two types that make hot water are flat panels and vacuum tube collectors. The vacuum tube collectors work better in colder and cloudy areas but their efficiency prevents heat loss that might melt snow. Most of a light snow will fall between them but you are back to maintenance with a heavier snow. Flat panels are less efficient and will melt a light snow off of the panels for a heavier snow you will need the roof rake.
The last type of solar panel are solar air panels. These are most often mounted on the side of a house rather than the roof as they are intended to provide hot air to the living spaces. They are essentially like little greenhouses. Unless the snow is building up against the side of the house these should be free from a snow problem.
How Do Solar Panel Led Grow Lights Work?
I'M Just Curious Because Would You Be Able To Put Them On A Timer Like 18/6 On Or 12/12 Because A Lot Of Plants Are Photo-Period
To replace a $150 400 watt metal halide lamp with solar powered LED's would break down as follows.
60 watts of LED $150
60 watts of solar panel with inverter $250.
2) deep cycle 12V batteries $200.
$600 vs $150
When You Power A House With Solar Panels.....?
The Batteries That The Solar Panels Charge For Nighttime, How Long Do They Last? Like Total Lifetime
Unless you live in a remote location there is no need to have a storage system. I have a system that is tied to the grid, I generate about 75% of my own energy. During the day when I'm generating more than I need I sell it back to my utility, basically my meter runs backwards, then at night I use what I need. This type of system is much less expensive than an off grid system. With my state rebate and fed. tax credit, I will break even no later than my 6th year.
Advantages And Disadvantages Of Using Solar Panels?
Solar energy is a renewable energy resource and there are no fuel costs. No harmful polluting gases are produced.
Solar cells are expensive and inefficient, so the cost of their electricity is high.
Solar panels may only produce very hot water in very sunny climates, and in cooler areas may need to be supplemented with a conventional boiler.
Although warm water can be produced even on cloudy days, neither solar cells nor solar panels work at night.
