What are The Best Websites to Find Solar Panels Information and About Solar Energy?
I’ve got a major science assignment – can’t find any info on solar panels information and more information about solar energy.
I need a description of it and how it is useful in society.
Research being done today of solar energy to make it more practical.
AND advantages and disadvantages of solar energy.
Some good websites would be greatly appreciated……. Thanks
can anyone find some URL’s
Here are a few links to help you on your way =)
Advantages and disadvantages of solar panels information and solar energy as well as information about the history and how it works can be found here:
Solar energy practicality:
And of course here at DIY Solar Panels
Where do I Find Solar Panels Information and Building Solar Energy Devices?
I would like Solar Panels Information on building solar Energy devices as in water heaters and more.
Buying the devices is very costly. they can be made for much much less out of spare parts. I also need this for my kids who are looking for school projects.
There are plenty of solar water heaters already on the market. Plus you can buy all the parts to make your own. No need to reinvent the wheel..
What is a Reliable Site Where I can Find Detailed Solar Panels Information on Solar Energy or Science in General?
Hopefully it ends in .gov, .org, .edu, etc) but I need to find a reliable and good source on solar energy for a science fair project.
Energy Science Projects and Activities
Here you’ll find resources for science projects and activities-for science fairs, class or home-to help students in grades K-12 learn about energy, particularly energy efficiency and renewable energy.
What’s a Good Resource for Solar Panels Information About Solar Energy and DIY Solar Projects?
I’m looking to solar power my home and don’t want to spend a lot of money, I want to do everything myself and need a good guide solar panels information and all other relevant info.
Of all the sites that I have come across on the Internet about solar power and it’s home application the most accurate and helpful has been…
It covers all the aspects about solar panels information that any homeowner would need to know and that would take looking in a few other sites just to get all the different information. PLUS it has books you can get that will detail the exact process of putting together a heating or energy system. I am in the process of making a heating system from it now. (takes about a week to do by yourself). Hope that helps!
How Can i get Information on Solar Energy Business?
To reduce the electricity bill. it is becoming very expensive to use electricity.
Before you consider Solar power you should take measure to reduce your usage now.
The cheapest and most effective energy upgrade is conservation
By cutting the fat out of your energy diet you reduce the size of the system often making it cheaper for an install
Look into Solar thermal or hot water systems as well
I Need Solar Panels Information About Solar Energy
I get some solar energy project so can you give me solar panels information or project reports about solar energy.
Solar power is the technology of obtaining usable energy from the light of the Sun. Solar energy has been used in many traditional technologies for centuries and has come into widespread use where other power supplies are absent, such as in remote locations and in space.
Solar energy is currently used in a number of applications:
* Heating (hot water, building heat, cooking)
* Electricity generation (photovoltaics, heat engines)
* Desalination of seawater.
Its application is spreading as the environmental costs and limited supply of other power sources such as fossil fuels are realized.
Energy from the Sun
Solar Radiation reaches the Earth’s upper atmosphere at a rate of 1,366 watts per square meter (W/m2).
 While traveling through the atmosphere, 6% of the incoming solar radiation (isolation) is reflected and 16% is absorbed resulting in a peak irradiance at the equator of 1,020 W/m².
 Average atmospheric conditions (clouds, dust, pollution) reduce insolation by 20% through reflection and 3% through absorption.
 In addition to affecting the quantity of insulation reaching the surface, atmospheric conditions also affect the quality of insulation reaching the surface by diffusing incoming light and altering its spectrum.
The image on the right shows the average global irradiance calculated from satellite data collected from 1991 to 1993. For example, in North America the average insolation lies between 125 and 375 W/m² (3 to 9 kWh/m²/day).
 This is the available power, and not the delivered power. Photovoltaic panels currently convert about 15% of incident sunlight into electricity; therefore, a solar panel in the contiguous United States on average delivers 19 to 56 W/m² or 0.45-1.35 kWh/m²/day.
 The dark disks on the second image on the right are an example of the land areas that, if covered with 8% efficient solar panels, would produce slightly more energy in the form of electricity than the total world primary energy supply in 2003.
 While average insulation and power values offer insight into solar power’s potential on a regional scale, locally relevant conditions need to be assessed to determine the solar potential of a specific site.
A recent concern is global dimming, an effect of pollution that is allowing less sunlight to reach the Earth’s surface. It is intricately linked with pollution particles and global warming, and it is mostly of concern for issues of global climate change, but is also of concern to proponents of solar power because of the existing and potential future decreases in available solar energy. The order of magnitude is about 4% less solar energy available at sea level over the time frame 1961–90, mostly from increased reflection from clouds back into outer space.
 After passing through the Earth’s atmosphere, most of the sun’s energy is in the form of visible and Infrared radiations. Plants use solar energy to create chemical energy through photosynthesis. Humans regularly use this energy burning wood or fossil fuels, or when simply eating the plants.
Hope you found Solar Panels Information on Solar Energy Useful
