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 daily life: running your air conditioning system, cleaning clothing, watching TV, cooking supper. All while decreasing your carbon footprint, and without burning nonrenewable fuel sources or putting a pressure on the electrical grid. And while the ecological advantages of solar power are considerable, many homeowners discover that the benefit, special functions, and cost savings of owning a solar power system are much more alluring.
Top Ten Benefits of Solar Energy
#1 Considerably lower and even eliminate your electrical bills
Whether you're a house owner, company, or nonprofit, electrical power costs can comprise a big part of your month-to-month expenses. With a photovoltaic panel system, you'll generate 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 lower your energy expenses and you'll still save a lot of cash.
#2 Earn an excellent return on your financial investment
Solar panels aren't a cost-- they are among the very best methods to invest, with returns rivaling those of more traditional financial investments like stocks and bonds. Thanks to significant electrical energy bill cost savings, the typical American house owner pays off 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 advantages of photovoltaic panels is the capability to hedge energy prices. In the previous 10 years, domestic electrical power costs have gone up by approximately three percent each year. By investing in a solar energy system now, you can fix your electrical power rate and safeguard against unpredictable increases in electrical power expenses. If you're an organisation or homeowner with ever-changing capital, going solar likewise assists you much better projection and handle your expenditures.
#4 Boost your home value
Numerous research studies have actually discovered that homes equipped with solar energy systems have greater residential or commercial property values and offer more rapidly than non-solar houses. Appraisers are progressively taking solar setups into consideration as they value homes at the time of a sale, and as property buyers end up being more educated about solar, need for homes geared up with solar panel systems will continue to grow.
#5 Increase U.S. energy independence
The sun is a near-infinite source of energy and a key component of attaining energy self-reliance in the United States. By increasing our capability to produce electricity from the sun, we can likewise insulate our country from cost fluctuations in worldwide energy markets.
#6 Create jobs and help your regional economy
According to The Solar Structure, the solar industry 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 development is anticipated to continue. Since solar-related jobs have the tendency to be greater paying and can not be outsourced, they are a considerable factor to the United States economy.
#7 Safeguard the environment
Solar is a fantastic method to decrease your carbon footprint. Structures are accountable for 38 percent of all carbon emissions in the U.S., and going solar can significantly reduce that number. A typical domestic photovoltaic panel system will remove 3 to four lots of carbon emissions each year-- the equivalent of planting over 100 trees every year.
#8 Show your dedication to sustainability
Sustainability and corporate social responsibility are essential components of a company's culture and values. They likewise produce bottom line results. Increasingly, consumers and neighborhoods are acknowledging and rewarding services that decide to run properly. Organisations are finding that "green" credentials are a powerful driver of customer getting choices, developing 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 house owners to go solar for little or no loan down.
Lots of homeowners decide to fund their photovoltaic panels with one of the "pay-as-you-go" funding choices. This suggests that a third-party company-- the solar service provider-- owns the planetary system and takes care of installation, upkeep, monitoring and repairs. You simply pay the solar company for electrical power-- less than you would've paid the utility company.
Since June 2013, 75% of all American houses have access to pay-as-you-go solar.
#10. Solar is a Secure Financial investment
The utility companies are notorious for their varying and unreliable electrical energy costs. There is plainly an upward pattern.
With photovoltaic panels and basic mathematics, we can calculate what does it cost? electrical power will be generated, and most notably, at exactly what rate, for at least the next 20 years (repaired energy expenses).

Frequently Asked Questions
What Is The Average Amount Of Equity That My Home Can Potentially Gain If I Install Solar Panels On It.?
I'M Thinking About Installing Solar Panels On My Home But I'M Curious To Know What Would Be A Ball Park Amount Of Equity My Home Could Gain.
I am in Ontario, and I asked a real estate agent about that as I was seriously looking into adding this to my new home. Right now in my area, solar panels will not increase the value of the home. People are just not ready to pay extra for a house for this yet here, so if you are doing solar for resale, you will be loosing a good $20,000. Look into wind turbines...much more efficient, but a bet more expensive here.
How Could You Decide Whether A House Has Active Solar Heating Or A Passive Solar Heating When Looking At The?
Outside Of A House? Please Explain
Hey Michael, once you understand the difference in the two, you'll be able to tell easily, I'll explain. Passive solar is not a type of device, or a system of any kind, it is a design feature in the house itself. This is where windows, skylights or light tubes are located on the home in such a way that allows natural sunlight to penetrate deep into the home for lighting and heating. There are no wires, plumbing, or other mechanical features to passive solar, just the location of the windows and other openings in the house, and how shading is managed with trees or overhangs. Active solar is easy to see because of the, "Activity," that is involved in it. You might see panels, absorbers, boxes or other devices located on the roof or in the yard that face the sun. These will have wiring or plumbing connecting them to the home and an, "activity," such as pumping or active circuits will make them work. This is where the name active solar comes from. What you can't always tell from seeing these things on the outside of a home is what type of solar power is being harnessed. A solar water heater might look just like a photovoltaic panel, but one produces hot water, the other electricity. We have both at our home, they look very much alike. We also have passive solar heat, which is nothing more than south facing windows that reach down 4 feet below our 2 foot overhangs. This allows full sun onto the living room floor in the winter,but none in the summer due to the suns angle changing with the seasons. To the untrained eye however, it just appears to be a window. Hope this makes sense. Take care, Rudydoo

Rather than a simple economic issue, this is a matter of national defense. Just as industry found it unprofitable to build the Interstate Highway System, government must again finance new infrastructure.
For security, we need a smart grid and a nationwide power and communication network buried completely underground. For energy independence that will get us out of the Mid-East, we need homes with near-perfect insulation, solar panels, and geothermal wells. To battery-power our entire automobile fleet, we need dozens of safe, thorium-based nuclear power plants. And to eliminate the long-haul truck and air traffic that uses a major portion of our energy and our highway and airport maintenance expense, we need a network of efficient maglev freight and passenger trains zipping through low-pressure tubes faster than a jet plane.
Who says we can’t finance infrastructure? Bond holders are paying us to keep their money safe at a negative real (inflation-adjusted) interest rate. And we can buy bonds ourselves, as we did during WW II. And money can be generated on computer keyboards, as the Fed is doing for banks.
How much can we afford to spend annually on infrastructure? According to the Congressional Budget Office, $1T of annual government spending on infrastructure hires about 20 million unemployed and induces about $1.5T of consumer spending and $0.15T of consumer savings. If industry likes that growth enough to annually borrow and invest $0.5T, the total annual spending would increase to $3T. And the GDP growth rate would reach 20% and ensure low interest rates.
So what would be the annual deficit? Zero! In fact, we could actually reduce the debt by spending $1T annually on infrastructure. First, we would employ twenty million jobless workers, each of whom would stop drawing the equivalent of $25,000 in annual relief benefits of all kinds. Also, the improved infrastructure would produce at least an annual 1% productivity increase. With tax revenue at federal and state levels increasing with GDP, the federal budget gets a boost:
Reduced unemployment benefits = $25K benefits x 20 million people = $0.50T
Productivity improvement = 1% x $15T+ economy = $0.15T
Federal tax revenue increase = $3T increased spending x 20% = $0.60T
Reduced federal aid to states = $3T increased spending x 5% = $0.15T
Total annual budget gain = $1.40T
Less cost of stimulus - $1.00T
Net debt reduction = $0.40T = $400B
A small government cannot build the world’s greatest infrastructure.
Without the world’s greatest infrastructure, we will not have the world’s greatest industrial base.
Without the world’s greatest industrial base, we will not have the world’s greatest defense.
Without the world’s greatest defense, our nation will be in jeopardy.
A small government is the road to serfdom.
A small government would betray those who died for our freedom.
The traitors demanding a small government deserve scorn, if not execution.
How Much Watt I Need In A Solar Panel To Charge A Car Battery?
Im Trying To Save Money, So Io Have A 8000W Inverter 16000W Max, And I Wnat To Connect A Car Battery, But I Need A Solar Panel To Charger It, But I Dont Know How Much Watts I Need To Buy The Solar Panel, To Charge The Battery, Theres A Lot Of Solar Panel On Ebay, Where Is Im Trying To Buy, So Help Me Out,
So This Proyect Its For Get Free Energy And Dont Pay Enargy Bill
A single battery won't last you very long. You'll want a bank of many batteries connected in parallel. Also, you'll want to use deep-cycle batteries that can be drawn down and recharged. Car batteries are not designed for this type of use and will not last long.
You will want to calculate your average energy consumption. You can use your utility bill to see how many KWh of electricity you use and make sure you have some reserve. You will likely need a fairly substantial array of solar panels if you want to run the house independently of the power grid. For example, our small house uses about 200 kWh of electricity per month. That's an average draw of 280 watts. If we assume the solar panels produce about 80% of their rated output for about 6 hours per day, (accounting for times the sun is not directly aimed at the panels) that would require about 1500 watts of solar panels just to maintain the average draw. There's also some loss in the inverter.
Your plan is a noble one but you are looking at some substantial expense and effort.
How Would You Make A Solar Heater For A Garage Using Reclaimed Materials?
My Mom'S Garage Has A Back Room - And Once Upon A Time It Had A Furnace In There So It'S Insulated. She Decided To Turn It Into An Office. Anyhow, In Order To Use It A Few More Months Of The Year, It Could Use Some Heat, Or Rather Additional Heat (An Electric Oil Heater Is Being Used Now). So If I Can Find A Simple Enough Schematic, I Thought I Might Make Something For Christmas: If I Spent My Money She Would Have A Fit.
I've seen designs which use a 4 X 8 or smaller panel of 1/2" Exterior plywood with 2 X 4 or 2 X 6 inch sides (painted or exterior grade wood)....make a box out of it and snake a tube of 4 or 5 inch diameter aluminum flexible ductwork back and forth through the box and cover the box with old storm windows or full-length storm door glass, picture window glass, plexiglass, etc... Paint the interior of the box and ductwork with black or brown paint to absorb more heat. Cut an opening at the top and bottom of the box for the ductwork to draw in air from the garage and exhaust hot air back in. Mount the box on the south side of the garage to capture sunlight. Caulk any seams where the ductwork goes from the box through the garage walls and seal the glass to the box to prevent any hot air from escaping. Use a small duct fan or similar to draw the hot air from the top outlet or exhaust of the box into the garage. Convection alone will draw in cooler air at the bottom and force it out the top or exhaust but not very forcefully...yet if the unit fan is turned off, it will still produce some heat.On sunny days, this design can have temp rises of 30-40 degrees...some large designs up to 60 degrees temp rise ...a bigger box design than a smaller one will put out more heat.
Some designs use old soda cans with the ends cut open rather than flex ductwork and others use foil backed insulation boards inside the box to reflect heat.
