Decreasing Our Carbon Footprint, One Home at a Time

Imagine this: You’re relaxing at home on the weekend, feet up, a bowl of popcorn in hand, all while actively decreasing your carbon footprint.

Sound too good to be true? It’s not! While the resident of a solar power system is kicking back with their feet up, their home is indeed busy harnessing the clean energy of the sun, thereby reducing their carbon footprint.

Pretty cool, huh? That’s not all.

The benefits of installing solar panels on your home include but are not limited to:

Diminished CO2 Emissions

The average American household generates 7.5 tons of carbon dioxide per year through electrical use. By utilizing solar energy, a homeowner is not only reducing the emission of CO2 in mass quantities, but they’re also helping to conserve more than 16,000 gallons of water per year.

Decreased Reliance on Fossil Fuels

As we move further away from fossil fuel usage, the ability to harness energy from the sun is actually allowing us unlimited access to this renewable resource. While fossil fuels are typically found through mining or extracting from the ground, making them difficult to obtain, solar power remains abundant for usage.

Lowered Pollution Levels

Residential solar energy doesn’t formulate any harmful emissions or by-products, therefore its utilization is lowering pollution levels to bring health benefits to you, your family, and your community.

In the end, installing solar panels is both an investment for your wallet and for Mother Earth.
