Solar Energy is a clean, affordable, and sustainable way to generate electricity. Along with substantial financial benefits, solar power has significant environmental benefits as well.
- REDUCES AIR POLLUTION
Harmful carbon dioxide and methane emissions from fossil fuels, our traditional energy source, are leading contributors to global warming and decreased air quality. Generating electricity with solar panels, however, produces no greenhouse gasses whatsoever and thus reduces air pollution.
- REDUCES WATER WASTAGE
Solar energy doesn’t pollute local water resources, because solar photovoltaic cells don’t need water to generate power. Fossil fuels, on the other hand, use water for almost every aspect of their electricity generation.
- REDUCES OUR RELIANCE ON FOSSIL FUELS
Solar energy production does not require fossil fuels and is therefore less dependent on this limited and expensive natural resource. As opposed to fossil fuels, which draw on finite resources that may eventually become too expensive to retrieve, renewable energy sources are generally unlimited in availability.
- HELPS FIGHT CLIMATE CHANGE
Solar energy reduces the climate change risks associated with power generation using fossil fuels. Burning fossil fuels to produce energy has led to the serious threat of global warming and irreversible climate change. solar power is now competitive with other sources of energy without emitting the dangerous greenhouse gases that cause climate change.
- HELPS REDUCE OUR HOUSEHOLD’S CARBON FOOTPRINT
A residential solar panel system has the capability of providing for the electricity needs of an entire home with about 80% lower carbon emissions than fossil fuels. Installing a residential solar panel system will lower your home’s utility bill while significantly reducing its annual carbon footprint at the same time.
- HELPS REDUCE RESPIRATORY AND CARDIO HEALTH ISSUES
One of the biggest advantages of solar power is that it positively impacts human health. Studies show that these dangerous pollutants can cause several severe respiratory problems, including asthma, bronchitis, pulmonary inflammation and chronic respiratory disease, as well as cardio health issues, such as heart attack and stroke. Solar power results in fewer health problems, and lost workdays related to health issues. Reducing air pollutants can prevent unnecessary healthcare costs and save more than 25,000 lives.
