Solar energy has been gaining popularity in recent years as an environmentally friendly and sustainable source of energy. Unlike traditional sources of energy like coal, oil, and natural gas, solar energy produces no greenhouse gas emissions during operation.
What does this have to do with you? The average American produces a 16 ton carbon footprint every year – which means each person emits close to 16 tons of greenhouse gasses into the atmosphere, both directly and indirectly, through using fossil fuels.
By switching to solar energy, you cut that impact dramatically.
Traditional sources of energy such as coal, oil, and natural gas have been the primary sources of energy for decades. However, the use of these sources of energy has had a significant impact on the environment. The burning of fossil fuels produces large amounts of greenhouse gas emissions, which are the primary cause of climate change.
Not to mention, extraction, transportation, and processing of fossil fuels can cause significant environmental damage, including air and water pollution and habitat destruction.
Solar energy, on the other hand, is a clean and renewable source of energy. The generation of solar energy does not produce any greenhouse gas emissions, making it an environmentally friendly alternative to traditional sources of energy. Solar energy systems do not require any fuel, which means they do not need to be transported, reducing the carbon footprint of the energy production process.
In addition to being a clean source of energy, solar energy systems can also reduce the amount of energy that needs to be produced by traditional sources of energy. This means that solar energy can help to reduce the demand for fossil fuels, which can reduce the environmental impact of traditional sources of energy.
But what does this have to do with you?
Your carbon footprint is the total amount of greenhouse gas emissions that are produced as a result of your activities, including the energy that you use. By switching to solar energy, you can significantly reduce your carbon footprint.
When you generate your own solar energy, you are not relying on traditional sources of energy, which means you are not contributing to the greenhouse gas emissions produced by the generation of energy from those sources.
But making a good choice for the environment doesn’t have to mean you’re making a bad choice for your wallet. In fact, solar energy can also help you to save money on your energy bills.
When you generate your own energy, you are not relying on energy from the grid, which means you do not have to pay for that energy. This can lead to significant savings on your energy bills over time.
