Have you ever thought about the impact one person can make when choosing to go solar? It seems like everywhere you look these days, people, companies and governments are investing in our planet’s future. It’s a wise investment, and we’re proud to say that it is one that Crius Solar has been making since day one.
With leaders and activists from nearly 200 countries reaching a landmark agreement – the first of its kind – to lower carbon emissions at the U.N. Climate Control Conference in Paris this month, there has never been a better time to think about the things we, as individuals, can do to help reduce greenhouse gases and increase the use of renewable energy.
Driving a car, using electricity to light and heat your home, and throwing away garbage all lead to greenhouse gas emissions, and you can reduce emissions through simple actions like changing a light bulb, powering down electronics, using less water, and recycling. But one of the most effective ways to reduce our nation’s greenhouse gas emissions is through – you guessed it – solar energy!
According to the Solar Energy Industries Association, levels of carbon dioxide and other greenhouse gases in the atmosphere have increased dramatically in the past few decades, and are contributing to climate change. Going solar is one of the most cost-effective and simple ways that individuals can be part of the change – reducing their carbon footprint and decreasing the amount of greenhouse gases that enter the atmosphere.
Take a look at some of the reasons going solar can help to keep our planet green and sustainable for years to come.
Solar systems reduce the amount of carbon emissions released into the atmosphere. Solar produces less life-cycle greenhouse gas emissions than conventional fossil fuel energy sources. The generation of energy from the solar system results in less carbon emissions and lowers our environmental impact – making solar energy green AND clean!
Solar is a renewable energy source. Unlike traditional depleting sources of power like coal and natural gas, the sun’s power is unlimited and available everywhere in the world. And not to mention, the sun won’t run out of fuel for another 5 to 7 billion years!
Solar energy has a minimal impact to the collective environment. The solar panels that are installed on your home or business are not invasive to the environment. They do not produce noise pollution, let off any form of scent and are made out of commonly available materials!
Expanding solar power is essential to meet climate goals on a national, and global scale. The benefits of a solar energy system are endless – and can really have a positive impact on our environment.
