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 house owners to use the sun to power daily life: running your a/c unit, washing clothing, enjoying TELEVISION, cooking dinner. All while decreasing your carbon footprint, and without burning fossil fuels or putting a stress on the electrical grid. And while the environmental advantages of solar power are significant, lots of residents find that the convenience, unique features, and cost savings of owning a solar power system are much more enticing.
Top Ten Benefits of Solar Energy
#1 Significantly minimize and even remove your electric bills
Whether you're a homeowner, business, or nonprofit, electrical power costs can make up a big portion of your monthly expenses. With a photovoltaic panel system, you'll produce complimentary power for your system's entire 25+ year lifecycle. Even if you don't produce 100 percent of the energy you consume, solar will reduce your utility expenses and you'll still conserve a great deal of money.
#2 Make a fantastic return on your investment
Solar panels aren't an expense-- they are among the finest ways to invest, with returns matching those of more traditional financial investments like stocks and bonds. Thanks to significant electricity bill cost savings, the typical American house owner pays off their solar panel system in seven to eight years and sees an ROI of 20 percent or more.
#3 Safeguard against rising energy expenses
One of the most clear cut benefits of photovoltaic panels is the capability to hedge utility costs. In the past 10 years, residential electrical energy rates have increased by approximately three percent yearly. By purchasing a solar energy system now, you can fix your electrical energy rate and protect against unforeseeable boosts in electrical energy costs. If you're a business or homeowner with changing money circulation, going solar likewise helps you much better forecast and handle your expenses.
#4 Boost your residential or commercial property value
Multiple studies have actually discovered that homes equipped with solar energy systems have higher property worths and sell more rapidly than non-solar houses. Appraisers are significantly taking solar setups into consideration as they value houses at the time of a sale, and as homebuyers end up being more educated about solar, need for residential or commercial properties geared up with photovoltaic panel systems will continue to grow.
#5 Boost U.S. energy self-reliance
The sun is a near-infinite source of energy and an essential component of accomplishing energy self-reliance in the United States. By increasing our capacity to produce electricity from the sun, we can also insulate our country from rate changes in worldwide energy markets.
#6 Create jobs and help your local economy
According to The Solar Foundation, the solar industry added tasks at a rate almost 12 times faster than the general U.S. economy in 2015, representing 1.2 percent of all jobs in the country. This growth is expected to continue. Due to the fact that solar-related tasks have the tendency to be higher paying and can not be contracted out, they are a substantial contributor to the United States economy.
#7 Safeguard the environment
Solar is a great 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 normal property photovoltaic panel system will eliminate 3 to four lots of carbon emissions each year-- the equivalent of planting over 100 trees annually.
#8 Demonstrate your dedication to sustainability
Sustainability and corporate social obligation are very important components of a company's culture and worths. They likewise produce bottom line results. Progressively, customers and neighborhoods are acknowledging and rewarding businesses that opt to run responsibly. Businesses are finding that "green" qualifications are a powerful driver of consumer getting decisions, developing goodwill and improving service outcomes.
#9 Start Saving from Day 1
Solar purchase power arrangements (PPAs) and solar leasing has made it possible for house owners to go solar for little or no loan down.
Lots of property owners pick to finance their solar panels with one of the "pay-as-you-go" funding alternatives. This means that a third-party company-- the solar service provider-- owns the solar system and looks after setup, maintenance, monitoring and repair works. You just pay the solar service provider for electricity-- less than you would've paid the utility 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 business are notorious for their varying and undependable electrical energy costs. There is clearly an upward pattern.
With photovoltaic panels and easy mathematics, we can determine just how much electrical power will be produced, and most notably, at exactly what price, for at least the next 20 years (repaired energy costs).

Frequently Asked Questions
What Are Solar Panels?
And Would The Work For Mobile Homes
It's a device that somehow collects energy from the sun, probably through the form of heat, and converts it to electricity to be used.
I'm not sure if you'd be able to use them for mobile homes. I mean, maybe, but they're only like 5% efficient, so to really get good energy, you'd need a ton, and with a mobile home, you probably don't have the room for a ton of panels..
How Large Of A Solar Panel Is Needed To Power A Typical Home Central Air Unit?
I Would Like To Offset My Air Conditioning Bills By Purchasing A Solar Panel Setup. I Guess The Questions That Need Answered Are These:
How Much Power Does A Central Air Unit Use? 220 Volts / 8 Amps Sound About Right?
How Large Of A Solar Array Will I Need To Power This Non-Stop During Peak Daylight/Sunlight Hours?
If your state offers "New Metering" look into installing a grid-tie system. You won't need to rely on batteries storing the energy your panels produce and if you produce more energy than you consume one month the utility company will actually credit your account for that surplus. I would recommend Global Solar Center as a good starting point (http://www.globalsolarcenter.com/). They will provide you with a free solar quote and inform you of all the incentives you'll be eligible for, your estimated annual savings, payback period etc... They'll provide you with all the info you'll need to make a smart decision. Whether or not the system powers your entire central units consumption, at the end of the day you will be saving on your monthly utility bill. Your location will be a major factor as far as feasibility goes but you should definitely start by visiting that site.
How Much Solar Panel Would Be Needed To Power A Large House?
Can Anyone Estimate How Much Solar Panel Would Be Needed For A Fairly Large House And Maybe The Price As Well
There are a lot of factors to consider, like how much sun your area gets, how much energy your home consumes, etc.
I did a rough calculation yesterday that for my home, I would need to cover about one-fifth of my roof area with solar panels to provide most of my home energy needs. I have a 1,200 square foot home which consumes about 3,000 kWh per year of energy, and I live in a pretty sunny area (north-central California).
How Expensive Are Solar Panels?
Impact Of Solar Panels On Resale Value In Pennsylvania.?
We Live In Pa And Are Considering A Couple Of Solar Options -- Either A 3-Panel Hot Water System, Or A Full Solar System. How Would These Impact Our Home'S Resale Value? It'S A 4,000 Sq Ft Home In A 7-Year Old Development.
I'd recommend talking to a real estate agent. It could raise or lower your home's value. It could raise it from an energy saving standpoint. But it could also lower it from an eyesore standpoint. The one housing complex I was in wouldn't even allow solar panels on the houses from an eyesore standpoint. So first I would start off by checking with the housing development, they may have rules that you can't even put them on your house. Then I'd check with a real estate agent. If both say ok, then I'd put them where they are as non-visible as possible. You don't want them on the road side of the house. The road view is the selling view of the house and it is the first thing that people see when they drive up to your house when it is up for sale. First impressions are BIG. In a store, it is the for 0.5 seconds that sell a person on a product. If that carries over on houses, it means that can eliminate your house before they even enter the door.
