Environmental Benefits of Renewable Solar Energy

Growing Concerns Regarding Climate Change Call For Alternative Energy Solutions

Reduce Your Carbon Footprint

Environmental Impact

It’s not just the smokestacks from factories and exhaust fumes from cars. The energy produced for our own homes also contributes to greenhouse gas emissions just the same. Switching to alternative solar energy sources for our day-to-day lives not only helps reduce our carbon footprint but also helps us preserve our non-renewable and limited resources like coal, natural gas, etc.

Clean & Renewable Solar Energy

Greenhouse gases are created when fossil fuels are burned to make electricity. Solar power, however, is a clean and pure way to produce electricity. In fact, you’re not really creating energy as much as you are harnessing one form of energy and utilizing it for another. This recycled energy is both renewable and sustainable. Also, it saves on energy costs.

Affordable Solar Energy

Even with the prices of fossil fuels dropping over the years, it can no longer compete with the affordability of renewable energy. The price of solar has decreased by nearly 60% since 2010. According to Consumer Reports, “in 2015 America averaged one new residential solar installation about every 100 seconds.” America passed the 1 million installation mark in May 2016 and passed the 2 million solar installation mark in the summer of 2018.

Make Impact On Environment

It takes burning one pound of coal to create one kWh of electricity. The average American household uses approximately 11,000 kWh of electricity per year. This would require the burning of five-and-a-half tons of coal. The burning of coal and other fossil fuels produces carbon dioxide, carbon monoxide, sulfur dioxide, along with other noxious gases. In contrast, solar releases no emissions into the atmosphere. Purchasing a solar energy system may be the most important contribution you can make to limit your carbon footprint and save the environment.
