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, washing clothes, watching TV, cooking supper. All while lowering 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, numerous home owners find that the convenience, distinct features, and cost savings of owning a solar power system are even more alluring.
Leading Benefits of Solar Energy

Thanks to significant electrical power 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 Secure versus increasing energy costs
One of the most clear cut advantages of solar panels is the capability to hedge energy rates. In the past 10 years, property electrical energy costs have gone up by an average of 3 percent every year. By purchasing a solar energy system now, you can repair your electrical power rate and safeguard versus unpredictable increases in electrical power costs.

Solar purchase power contracts (PPAs) and solar leasing has made it possible for house owners to go solar for little or no loan down.
Numerous property owners opt to fund their photovoltaic panels with one of the "pay-as-you-go" funding choices. This implies that a third-party business-- the solar company-- owns the solar system and takes care of installation, upkeep, tracking and repairs. You merely pay the solar company for electrical energy-- less than you would've paid the energy business.
As of June 2013, 75% of all American homes have access to pay-as-you-go solar.
#10. Solar is a Secure Investment
The energy business are infamous for their varying and unreliable electricity costs. There is plainly an upward trend.

Frequently Asked Questions
Will A Solar Panel Ever Pay For It Self In Electrical Savings, At Market Prices? ?
I Bought A Solar Panel, It Cost About 400 Dollars , When The Sun Is Shining It Makes About, 50 Watts , Then I Have To Buy The Inverter And The Batteries , At Market Prices, Will It Ever Pay For Itself? They Say It Will Last About 10 Years. And How About A Windmill ?
You need in average 30 years to recover the investment of a solar energy system, this makes it economical unfeasible in most cases.The solar system will not probably last that either.
The only case where solar energy is economical feasible is where you do not have access to the grid, e.g. remote location.
In some countries where government wants to promote a green politics, the hardware is provided a low cost (green benefit), this makes it economical feasible for the final user.
Another way to make it economical feasible is to start from scratch thinking solar e.g. before building your house. If you buy and build everything; appliances, walls, heat systems and so on, thinking in how to do the best use of solar energy, thus you can get a nearly economical feasible system.
Can I Connect My Pool Pump To A Solar Panel?
What Size Would The Panel Be/ I Live In The Caribbean So Plenty Of Sun!
I Only Have One Heater
I don't need to tell you that electricity is extremely expensive in the Caribbean, and the sun is plentiful, so solar may be a cost effective solution for you. I have several customers in the islands who have solar pool pumping and solar pool heating.
You have a couple of options. If you already have a pump, you could find out how many watt hours (wh) it uses a day. To do that, figure out how many watts the pump uses, and how many hours a day it is on. Watts times hours equals watt hours, and that is how the electric companies charge us, how many wh, or kwh (thousand watt hours) a month. (1 horsepower is equal to about 750W, running for 6 hours would be 3900 wh, or 3.9kwh). Once you know how much power your pump uses, you can install enough solar panels and an inverter to generate that amount of power, thus offsetting what it uses.
Another option is to replace your existing pump with a more efficient solar powered pool pump. It would only run when the sun is shining, but that's pretty much when your existing pump runs too. Depending on the size of your pool, the whole package with pump and solar panels is about $5000. Do the math to see how much you are paying for electricity now, and see if it is worth it. http://www.altestore.com/store/Solar-Poo...
Your question also said you are using a heater. You can reduce or eliminate that need with solar pool heating. The pump pumps the water from the pool through the collectors, generally installed on your roof, and then back into the pool. The sun heats the water as it is traveling along your roof, just like leaving a hose out in the sun. You size the system based on the square feet of pool area. http://www.altestore.com/store/Solar-Poo...
Why Are Things Like Solar Panels And Geothermal Energy Sources So Expensive?
And Is There Anything That Can Be Done To Bring The Cost Down?
Solar will be cheaper when new technology replaces older, more expensive ones. Within 5 years, there will be no comparison, and fossil fuel will be costlier than solar.
How Many 80W Can Charge 4And2 Batteries?
How Many 80W Solar Panel Can Charge 2 And 4 Batteries In 8 Hours
It depends on the size of the batteries. 80 watts is a lot of power for a solar cell. First, make sure it's in fact an 80 watt panel. At 12 volts, 80 watts means over 6 amps or 6000 mA. This will charge about 6 AA cells in 1 hour if connected to the correct charging circuit or 48 AA cells in 8 hours. If you're talking about a car batteries, you would charge 1 car battery to a usable point in 8 hours.
Why Do People Say Solar Panels Are Too Expensive When In Ca They Lease/Install At Current Electric Bill Rate?
If Your Electric Bill Is $200. You Can Lease A Solar Pv System In Ca, And Pay $200. For 20 Years. No Raising Of Rates!!! No C02 Or Pollution To Offset. The Panels Are Warranted For 25 Years. Yet, So Many Here Buy Into The Ignorant Idea, Solar Is Not Viable, It'S Too Far Off, Why Is That? Glen Beck Said So? Check Rates In Your Area. 21 States Have Incentives. If Oil And Defense Get Corporate Welfare Solar Incentives Are Fair. The Main Components Are Silicon (Same As Computer Chips), Metal And Glass. It'S A No Brainer. The Ones Trying You To Convince You It'S Not Realistic Are Petroleum Companies, Ever Wonder Why?
Database Of State Incentives For Renewable Energy
That is all relatively new many people are not aware of the incentives.
