2. SOLAR HELPS THE ENVIRONMENT
Solar power systems create clean, renewable energy from the sun’s rays, helping to reduce greenhouse gas emissions and dependence on fossil fuels.
REDUCE YOUR CARBON FOOTPRINT
Harmful emissions from fossil fuels — including sources of traditional electricity — is the No. 1 contributor to global warming and poor air quality. Solar panels produce energy that is 100% free of greenhouse gas emissions, and the positive impact from even just one home is incredible. For example, having solar panels installed on your house for just five years usually offsets 25,498 pounds of coal burned or 2,689 gallons of gasoline consumed.
LOWER DEPENDENCE ON FOSSIL FUELS
Fossil fuels such as natural gas and coal account for 71% of energy consumption. In addition to contributing to poor air and water quality and global warming, these fuels are non-renewable — when they are gone, they are gone. This means that prices for fossil fuels depend on supply and demand as well as global political and economic forces. Solar, on the other hand is completely renewable energy. And, as solar technology has advanced, this powerful energy source has become exponentially effective and affordable. Solar truly is the energy of today and of the future.
