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 home owners to use the sun to power daily life: running your a/c, washing clothes, viewing TV, cooking supper. All while lowering your carbon footprint, and without burning nonrenewable fuel sources or putting a stress on the electrical grid. And while the environmental benefits of solar power are considerable, numerous homeowners discover that the convenience, special features, and cost savings of owning a solar power system are a lot more enticing.
Top Ten Advantages of Solar Energy
#1 Dramatically decrease or even eliminate your electrical expenses
Whether you're a house owner, business, or nonprofit, electricity expenses can comprise a big part of your monthly expenditures. With a photovoltaic panel system, you'll generate free power for your system's whole 25+ year lifecycle. Even if you don't produce 100 percent of the energy you take in, solar will reduce your energy expenses and you'll still save a lot of money.
#2 Make an excellent return on your investment
Photovoltaic panels aren't an expenditure-- they are among the very best ways to invest, with returns matching those of more conventional financial investments like stocks and bonds. Thanks to significant electrical energy expense cost savings, the typical American property owner pays off their solar panel system in seven to 8 years and sees an ROI of 20 percent or more.
#3 Safeguard against increasing energy costs
One of the most clear cut advantages of photovoltaic panels is the capability to hedge energy prices. In the past ten years, property electricity rates have actually increased by approximately three percent yearly. By purchasing a solar energy system now, you can fix your electrical power rate and secure versus unforeseeable boosts in electricity costs. If you're a service or house owner with ever-changing capital, going solar likewise assists you better forecast and handle your expenses.
#4 Increase your home or business worth
Multiple research studies have actually discovered that homes geared up with solar energy systems have greater home values and offer quicker than non-solar houses. Appraisers are significantly taking solar installations into consideration as they value houses at the time of a sale, and as property buyers become more educated about solar, demand 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 part of achieving energy independence in the United States. By increasing our capacity to create electrical power from the sun, we can likewise insulate our nation from price changes in global energy markets.
#6 Create jobs and assist your regional economy
According to The Solar Structure, the solar market included tasks at a rate almost 12 times faster than the overall U.S. economy in 2015, representing 1.2 percent of all jobs in the nation. This development is anticipated to continue. Due to the fact that solar-related tasks have the tendency to be higher paying and can not be outsourced, they are a significant factor to the U.S. economy.
#7 Safeguard the environment
Solar is a terrific way to reduce your carbon footprint. Structures are responsible for 38 percent of all carbon emissions in the U.S., and going solar can significantly reduce that number. A typical domestic solar panel system will get rid of three to 4 loads of carbon emissions each year-- the equivalent of planting over 100 trees annually.
#8 Show your commitment to sustainability
Sustainability and corporate social obligation are very important components of an organization's culture and worths. They likewise produce bottom line results. Increasingly, customers and neighborhoods are recognizing and rewarding organisations that decide to run responsibly. Businesses are discovering that "green" credentials are a powerful driver of customer buying decisions, producing goodwill and improving organisation results.
#9 Start Conserving from Day 1
Solar purchase power agreements (PPAs) and solar leasing has made it possible for property owners to go solar for little or no loan down.
Numerous house owners opt to finance their solar panels with among the "pay-as-you-go" financing choices. This indicates that a third-party business-- the solar provider-- owns the solar system and takes care of setup, upkeep, tracking and repair works. You just pay the solar company for electrical energy-- 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 business are well-known for their changing and undependable electrical power prices. There is plainly an upward trend.
With solar panels and basic mathematics, we can determine what does it cost? electricity will be generated, and most significantly, at exactly what cost, for a minimum of the next 20 years (repaired energy costs).
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.
- Low, fixed payments each month
- System insurance for 20 years, including maintenance
- Flexible end-of-term options, including system upgrade, lease extension, and free panel removal
Power Purchase Agreement (PPA)
- We own the solar panel system
- $0 down for installation
- Customers only pay for the solar energy that they use
- Customer pays for the system upfront and owns the system
- System monitoring and maintenance for 20 years
- Receive 30% federal tax credit

How To Calculate Electricity Generated By A Solar Panel?
What Information Will I Need Before?
How To Calculate The Energy Output ( In Kwh), Voltage
A panel will produce a voltage and an amperage (current). Both will depend on the panel, the amount of light and the load attached to the panel.
Watts = amps * volts
1W = 1A * 1V
If the panel output 12 volts at 1 amp then it would produce 12V * 1A = 12W
V = i * R
Voltage = amps * resistance
Say there is a load of 12 ohms across the panel electrodes and 12 volts is measured across the load.
then 12V = i * 12 ohms
Therefore the current is 1A 1A*12ohms = 12 volts
Could We Replace Gas Stations With Solar Panels?
Would It Be Possible To Replace Gas Stations With Solar Stations? For Example, Maybe We Could Have The Roof Of The Station Be A Huge Solar Panel And Instead Of The Gas Hole For Your Car, We Could Have A Certain Type Of Outlet. For The Gas Hose, We Could Have A Plug That We Would Plug Into Our Car And It Would &Quot;Charge&Quot; Our Car. Is This Possible?
P.S No Short/Unexplained Answers Please.
Technically yes. The energy from the Sun can separate an oxygen atom from CO2 to produce CO and an oxygen atom from H2O to produce H2, releasing O2. The mixture of CO and H2 is called syngas and will self assemble into linear hydrocarbons in the Fischer Tropsch reaction producing a carbon neutral synthetic gasoline or diesel as the carbon is from atmospheric CO2. Batch mode lab tests have already been successful, an actual reactor is going online soon, the Fischer Tropsch process is already in use to dilute our high sulfur diesel to meet federal ultra low sulfur diesel requirements and syngas can also be obtained from gasification of trash and dried sewage as is done with our current plasma incineration plants. However the panel would have to be very large or you'll be waiting a long time for your fuel.
Gasoline and diesel are just energy stored chemically as are batteries, you don't have to be electric to run off solar power, you don't even have to change a single vehicle.
How To Charge A Battery With A Higher Rated Solar Panel?
I Have A Small 6 Volt Battery And Two Small Solar Panels. Their Series Output (The Panels) Is 12.5 Volts (0.8 Watts) So It Drives A Current Of 64 -74 Ma. I Would Like To Charge The Battery With The Solar Panels, But Have Absolutely No Idea How. I Connected It To The Batteries And The Voltage Dropped To Around 6.55 Volts And Climbed Rapidly (About 0.1 Volts Per Minute). Did It Mean That Current Raised? I Need Your Help, Please. Thanks
Solar cells have a high internal resistance, so that will act as a current limiter when charging.
But you don't mention the size or rating of the battery. 70 mA may be fine, or it may overload the battery.
get the max charge rate of the battery, and then connect them as you had, and measure the current. It should not exceed the max allowed. An easy way to measure the current is to connect a 1 ohm resistor (or perhaps 10 ohms) in series and measure the voltage across it.
The numbers you saw looked about right. The number climbing is because the battery is charging. Or because it is overloaded. Check the battery specs before you try again.
If the current is too high, you will have to add resistance to keep it within spec. Or get a charge controller with the right numbers for the battery and panels.

There are a few ways we get energy from the sun. the most well known is though solar panels that turn the suns raise into energy and store it in battery's. Although there is also Solar Thermal that uses mirrors to heat water that then produces steam and turns turbines and makes power (this is general more practical due to the shortage of silicon to make solar panels.)
