About Solar Energy
Solar power is energy from the sun that is transformed into thermal or electrical energy.
Solar power makes it possible for homeowner to use the sun to power daily life: running your air conditioner, washing clothes, seeing TELEVISION, cooking dinner. All while reducing your carbon footprint, and without burning nonrenewable fuel sources or putting a strain on the electrical grid. And while the environmental benefits of solar power are considerable, numerous property owners find that the benefit, distinct functions, and cost savings of owning a solar power system are even more enticing.
Top Ten Benefits of Solar Energy
#1 Dramatically lower or even remove your electrical expenses
Whether you're a homeowner, organization, or nonprofit, electrical energy expenses can comprise a big part of your monthly costs. With a solar panel system, you'll create totally free power for your system's entire 25+ year lifecycle. Even if you do not produce One Hundred Percent of the energy you consume, solar will lower your utility costs and you'll still save a great deal of cash.
#2 Make a fantastic return on your investment
Solar panels aren't an expenditure-- they are among the best methods to invest, with returns rivaling those of more traditional financial investments like stocks and bonds. Thanks to substantial electrical energy expense cost savings, the average American house owner pays off their photovoltaic panel system in 7 to eight years and sees an ROI of 20 percent or more.
#3 Safeguard against rising energy expenses
Among the most clear cut advantages of photovoltaic panels is the ability to hedge utility prices. In the previous ten years, domestic electricity prices have actually increased by an average of three percent every year. By purchasing a solar energy system now, you can fix your electrical power rate and safeguard against unforeseeable increases 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 costs.
#4 Increase your home or business value
Numerous studies have actually discovered that houses geared up with solar energy systems have greater home worths and sell more rapidly than non-solar houses. Appraisers are significantly taking solar installations into factor to consider as they value houses at the time of a sale, and as homebuyers end up being more educated about solar, need for homes equipped with photovoltaic panel systems will continue to grow.
#5 Increase U.S. energy independence
The sun is a near-infinite source of energy and an essential element of accomplishing energy independence in the United States. By increasing our capability to create electrical energy from the sun, we can likewise insulate our country from rate changes in global energy markets.
#6 Develop jobs and help your regional economy
Inning accordance with The Solar Foundation, the solar industry added tasks at a rate almost 12 times faster than the overall U.S. economy in 2015, representing 1.2 percent of all tasks in the nation. This development is anticipated to continue. Because solar-related jobs have the tendency to be greater paying and can not be outsourced, they are a substantial factor to the U.S. economy.
#7 Secure the environment
Solar is a terrific way to lower your carbon footprint. Structures are accountable for 38 percent of all carbon emissions in the United States, and going solar can substantially reduce that number. A typical domestic photovoltaic panel system will remove 3 to 4 loads of carbon emissions each year-- the equivalent of planting over 100 trees each year.
#8 Demonstrate your commitment to sustainability
Sustainability and corporate social obligation are essential components of an organization's culture and values. They also produce bottom line outcomes. Progressively, consumers and communities are recognizing and rewarding companies that opt to operate properly. Services are finding that "green" credentials are an effective chauffeur of customer purchasing decisions, producing goodwill and enhancing business outcomes.
#9 Start Conserving from Day 1
Solar purchase power agreements (PPAs) and solar leasing has actually made it possible for homeowners to go solar for little or no cash down.
Many property owners decide to fund their photovoltaic panels with one of the "pay-as-you-go" financing choices. This indicates that a third-party business-- the solar supplier-- owns the planetary system and takes care of setup, maintenance, tracking and repairs. You merely pay the solar provider for electricity-- less than you would've paid the utility business.
As of June 2013, 75% of all American houses have access to pay-as-you-go solar.
#10. Solar is a Secure Investment
The utility companies are notorious for their varying and unreliable electrical energy costs. There is plainly an upward trend.
With photovoltaic panels and simple mathematics, we can compute just how much electrical power will be produced, and most notably, at what rate, for at least the next Twenty Years (fixed energy expenses).

Frequently Asked Questions
What Is More Environmentally Friendly
A Car That Gets 23 Mpg Or A Hybrid?
What's more environmentally friendly? That's the crux of the whole hybrid versus alternative energy issue. I love it when I hear people bragging about having an electric or a hydrogen powered car and how they are trying to save the planet. They don't think about were the power comes from to create that energy. Coal burning power plants are not the cleanest things out there. The only way to get a true environmentally friendly vehicle is if you use solar, wind, geothermal, or hydro-electric power to recharge the vehicle. And hybrid vehicles that are a combination of small engine and batteries might get great mileage but what do you do with the old batteries (that are toxic) when you have to replace them?
As one person suggested scooters get great mileage. The only problem is they have less emission regulations on the engines then cars do and can possible pollute more then a compact car. So are you really doing more harm then good? Makes you wander what all the hype is about, don't it?
How Much Energy Will Be Released By Two Neutron Stars Colliding?
Say Two Neutron Stars With 1.4 Solar Masses Collide Head-On At 1% The Speed Of Light.
How Much Kinetic Energy Will Be Released?
Also, Will It Cause Any Nuclear Reaction In Addition To The Kinetic Energy?
kinetic energy = ( 1 / 2 x mass ) x velocity^2
mass = 1.4 solar masses = 2.784 x 10^30 Kg
velocity = c * 0.01 = 2 997 924 Km/s = 1.07925264 × 10^10 Km/h
Using equation above you can calculate kinetic energy
Ek = ( (1 / 2) * (2.784 * 10^30) ) * (1.07925264 * 10^10)^2
Ek = 1.6213824752381816832 × 10^50 N
How Do Hydrogen Fuel Cells Compare To Solar Or Wind Energy As An Alternative Energy Source?
Solar and wind energy are alternative sources of energy, whereas hydrogen fuel cells are not exactly a source of energy at all, unless you have pure hydrogen. You see, hydrogen is a fuel, just like gasoline, except with no emissions other than water. The problem is that hydrogen is not abundant on earth, and must be derived from water. It takes just as much energy to do this as the hydrogen produces when used as fuel, so it is not really a source of energy, but rather a mode of transporting energy. Any source of energy, however, may be used to get hydrogen from water, including solar and wind.
How To Charge A Pure Electric Car At Night Using Photovoltaic Panels?
My Photovoltaic Panels (3Kw) Are Off Grid System, With 10 Deep Cycle Batteries Provide Electricity At Night.
I Don'T Use Aircond Nor High Power Electric Cooker. So 10 Deep Cycle Batteries Are Enough To Light Up The Energy Saver Light Bulbs, Some Fans A Tv And A Laptop.
I Tried To Charge The Electric Car At Night, Than Every Light Went Blackout (Except Laptop, Because It Has Its Own Battery Of Course). Disconnect The The Cable From Electric Car, Press The Reset Of The Charge Controller And The Light Came Back.
What Do I Need To Charge The Electric Car At Night? So That I Can Proud To Say That My Electric Car Is Zero Carbon Emission? I Can'T Charge The Electric Car During Day Time Because During Day Time I Have To Drive The Car Around Town.
An electric car is a power hog. It probably uses more than most home central A/Cs.
The electric Nissan Leaf has a 24 kWh lithium ion battery. A 3 kW solar array could produce a little over 20 kWH on a perfectly clear day, if they are pointed due south at an angle equal to your latitude. Because charging a lithium ion battery is only about 80-90% efficient and charging a lead acid battery (which I assume your deep cycle batteries are) is only 50-95% efficient (obviously you need to research lead acid batteries to get the most efficient ones with such a large range of possibly efficiency), it would take about 33-60 kWH of solar power to fully charge it. So you would need more solar panels and I suspect a lot more deep cycle batteries. Of course you probably do not completely drain the battery on your car every day, so 20 kWH is probably enough for daily driving if you only make short trips, but it would leave zero left over for lights and TV and refrigerator.
Why Does John Mccain Imply That Nuke Energy Is Safe Just B/C He Used To Sail Around On Nuclear Reactor Ships?
Have You Taken A Look At The Guy? I Know He's Near 90, But I Think The Radiation Is What Causes That Permanent Crackled Smile And The Need To Call Everyone "My Friends."
Navy ships have used them for nearly 60 years with a great safety record....other countries like France have been using them for decades and use the approach of only building 3-4 designs rather than the US model of letting various construction companies come up with their own varied complex designs which leads to many flaws and inconsistencies.
Molten Salt Reactors are even safer.
Molten Salt Reactors (MSRs) - a type of Nuclear Reactor
The most interesting application of molten salt technology was the development of the Molten Salt (Nuclear) Reactor (MSR). Originally developed to power a deep penetration bomber for targets in the Soviet Union during the early Cold War (1946 - 1962)4, it is a remarkable, yet virtually unknown reactor. Part of the problem was the limited geographical experience of the MSR as both operating MSRs were built only at Oak Ridge National Laboratory (ORNL), near Knoxville, Tennessee, USA.
The first MSR was the 1954, 100-hour operation of the Aircraft Reactor Experiment (ARE) at ORNL5. Its sole purpose was to demonstate the then unheard of notion of operating a reactor at red heat (~750° C; ~1,550° F) with a molten fuel and coolant consisting of melted fluoride salts (sodium fluoride, NaF; zirconium fluoride, ZrF 4; and UF4 [enriched in 235U])6. The second MSR was a civilian power plant prototype, the Molten Salt Reactor Experiment (MSRE)7. Hugely successful, it was ignored by the US Atomic Energy Commission (US AEC), which had decided to favor the Liquid Metal Fast Breeder Reactor (LMFBR). The Director of ORNL, Dr. Alvin Weinberg, pushed for the MSR, but was fired for his efforts 8.
The notable features of this reactor are:
Does not produce weapons grade plutonium
Has inherent non-proliferation features
Thousands of years of energy
Simplified fuel cycle (no fuel elements nor reprocessing required)
Its wastes are simpler and less toxic than current nuclear wastes
Only hundreds of years of storage versus thousands for the current wastes
Can completely destroy military plutonium
Can burn the existing wastes (spent fuel)!
Higher thermal efficiencies (operates at a "Red Heat"; ~700° C [1,260° F])
The reality is that nuclear power can be safe and plentiful while also being a clean form of electrical energy production.
And recent re-evaluations of oil deposits in North Dakota fields shows that they contain billions of barrels of oil...much more than previously thought.
The entire US electrical needs could be handled by a solar farm of a hundred miles square. The US can be entirely energy independant....it's just a matter of political will and getting the voters riled up enough to force politicians to do something rather than cow-towing to the oil and coal industries for re-election campaign funds...
