Solar panels have been around since at least the 1970s. The efficiency of solar hasn’t changed much, yet we’ve seen a re-emergence of solar panels on residential homes. That’s mostly partly because the price of solar panels and solar install costs has dramatically gone down. The question then becomes whether it makes economic sense for you to transition to a solar install. First, you should understand how the costs play out. When transitioning to solar, you’ll see a higher upfront cost, with savings over time. So, don’t expect your overall solar install time savings to produce results immediately, but instead, to gradually pay itself off over time.

With this criteria for system size, your total kWh consumption over the last 12 months is collected from your utility company. That number is then used to size the system with the aim of producing all the electricity your home will consume. Using the most recent 12 months is the most accurate approach because it includes all 4 seasons and the coinciding fluctuations in consumption.

he economics of solar panels and creating a solar home may seem like a big mystery to most people, but it’s not that complicated. The first thing you need to know is the solar yield of your solar home: how much electricity your solar panels are expected to generate. Let’s say you live in San Francisco, CA and you establish a 10 kilowatt per hour solar system. On average you will generate around 1600 kilowatts of electricity per month.

Climate change is something we often think about but don’t actually put a lot of effort into reversing. It is easy to live your everyday life and not worry about the polar ice caps melting, the climate change temperature rising on a yearly basis, or the burning wildfires in regions such as California and Australia. California fires and Australian fires are on the news yearly. Overwhelmed fire departments use every resource available to save towns, wildlife, and combat blazing infernos.

Our personal life choices in using energy to heat and cool our homes and businesses make a difference in what we term as "climate change." According to the U.S. Energy Information Administration and the Department of Energy, they determine that our energy consumption by fossil fuel produces pounds and pounds of C02. For example, something as simple as watching TV for more than 10 hours uses 31-gigawatt hours of energy every day.

The march is on to curb the effects of climate change. Organizations and governments have noticed the massive shifts in our environment and our natural areas. As a result, they have begun to turn to other resources to prevent transformations in weather, economy, and population.

Research from the association of Solar Energy Industries indicates that solar energy supply is surplus among all clean energies worldwide. Researchers also agree that if institutions decide to tap the minimum attainable solar power reaching the earth, it would sufficiently suffice the whole world. With this information, why not then install numerous solar panels to ensure a constant supply of electricity? Probably not a great idea, here is why.

Fossil fuels and natural gases are one of the world's guilty pleasures. We get 80 plus percent of America’s energy from these sources. They are the driving force behind our everyday life. Cars being powered, homes, and business all depend on fossil fuels. So, we depend on fossil fuels. Only thing is, they have proven to be hazardous to our environment and in turn our health. Newer means are always being explored by scientists to find a better source other than fossil fuels. After all, this source may one day run out due to our over usage and solar panels have been catching everybody's attention. With more environmental advantages than not, solar paneling may seem like the better choice. Nevertheless, it does not come without flaws.

Among the sources of energy we see today, solar energy is the most efficient in terms of its longevity and environmental impact. However, this doesn't mean we should discount the importance of scientific analysis of the situation. Through analytical data and professional guidance, one will attain more control of their solar panel system and achieve the best environmental results. Solar Energy is a renewable energy source derived from the sun, which constitutes an abundant source for future generations. Through the harnessing of this energy source, one will utilize the most efficient form of energy for maximum power.
