Benefits Of Green Solar Energy

Posted by admin on September 5, 2012 in Clean Energy with 8 Comments

To truly understand the benefits of green solar energy, you must first understand how solar energy is harnessed. There are two types of green solar energy-thermal and light. Thermal energy is considered passive solar. This type of green solar energy is harnessed through the design and materials used to construct a building. By integrating south facing windows and materials that retain heat, like brick and stone, you can lower your energy needs and build an energy efficient structure. The thermal energy produced by green solar energy is also used to heat water for solar hot water systems. The rays of the sun also produce light and radiation that can be captured by solar panels to create electricity.

The most popular use of green solar energy is for saving money. Although green solar energy systems can come with a large initial investment, they generally pay for themselves in a few years by providing either supplemental electricity or all of the electricity to your home or business. Building your own solar panels, participating in government refunds and net metering, in which you sell unused electricity back to the power company, can reduce the cost of implementing a green solar energy system. In addition, green solar energy systems require little to no maintenance after installation, as most have no moving parts.

The most important benefit of utilizing green solar energy is completely environmental. With polar ice caps dwindling away and climate changes creating tragic storms world wide, it is increasingly obvious that steps must be taken to decrease Global Warming and our dependence on fossil fuels. Green solar energy provides a Clean Energy alternative as it creates little pollution and does not contribute to global warming.

Solar energy panels have become more affordable in recent years making it a viable alternative energy option for savvy home owners looking for savings on their monthly utility bills and the environmentally conscious who also enjoy the financial advantage, but focus more on the benefits solar energy panels have on global warming and independence from fossil fuels.

If you are a beginner to the solar electric world, then you may be wondering what exactly solar energy panels are? It is really simple and yet fascinatingly complicated. Solar energy panels are also known as photovoltaic panels; photovoltaic meaning electricity from the sun. Solar energy panels work by collecting protons from the sun, which displace neutrons, and create a flow of electrons or electricity. An inverter converts the power generated by the solar energy panels from an AC current to a DC current making it usable in homes as a direct electricity supply.

You can use solar energy panels to heat your pool, workshop tools, greenhouse lights and fans or depending on you personal electric usage, your entire home or business. Most solar energy panels are designed to last 30-40 years and require little to no maintenance. Over the life-span of solar energy panels, the energy savings realized by the owner is enough to justify the initial cost of the system and prices are dropping more and more as a larger number of consumers express interest and make the change to solar energy panels or other renewable resources.

Solar energy panels for small applications can be purchased at your local hardware stores. These small versions are ideal for outdoor lighting, small water pumps and other outdoor tools. If you are purchasing a home size or business size system of solar energy panels it would be best to seek out a local retailer of solar energy panels or a green energy retailer in your area. There is also plenty of information available online about different solar energy panel providers.

    What Are Benefits of Green Solar Energy?
    You must understand the way to harness solar energy in order to rightly understand the benefits of green solar energy. Solar power is divided into two types. It is thermal energy and light energy. Thermal energy is known as passive solar. This type of solar energy is harnessed through the design and materials used to build a construction. With integrating south facing windows and heat-retained materials like brick and stone, you can reduce your energy needs and make an efficiency energy structure. Also, the thermal energy is used to make water heat for solar hot water systems. The rays of the sun also create radiation and light which is captured by solar panels to produce electricity.see more http://www.greenflexter.com

    The benefits are; clean and conservative. The start-up costs are out of reach for most but if one is "handy", much money can be saved by labor costs and even assembly costs. As time goes on the costs will decrease for start-up because the present costs are out of reach for most home owners. New technology like "The Bloom Box" is a good example of developing clean energy and more inventions will come.

    At the present time, solar energy is not economical for a homeowner or business. It is very expensive to install and maintain. The return is a net loss. Maybe in the near future things will be different. Wait awhile to see what becomes available. The only enities that can afford it are governments for experimental and educational purposes.

    Solar power for your home is expensive but it is still worth it if you look at your investment over a long period of time. With the returns you should be able to cover your cost over a 5-10 year period and then after that you will be saving a whole lot.

    It shouldn’t be installed just to save money, you should do it to use a clean green energy source. Saving money is just an extra benefit. http://www.sunpoweradvice.com

    thanks for the article… also, the use of solar in other outdoor activities is worth mentioning… we use it for camping, boating, backpacking, and fishing… the smaller solar panels and battery packs are great for these applications as well…
