Positive effects of Solar Energy
Solar energy has grown by 170 percent over the last year.
Total solutions offer a no-cost installation, where we front all of the money for the panels and installation. This is a good option for homeowners who do not want to make the initial investment or would prefer a no-money-down option.
No matter where you live, you most likely have some amazing tax credits for solar. Take advantage of them while you still can.
Helping the environment will help us all and preserve beautiful planet.
Here at Total solutions, we believe the environment is rapidly changing and want to help everyone do their very best to extend the life of our planet. We also believe in the future of our children and creating change now, will make for a healthier, cleaner environment for them.
Solar Energy’s Positive Impact on the Environment
Solar power systems derive clean, pure energy from the sun. Installing solar panels on your home helps combat greenhouse gas emissions and reduces our collective dependence on fossil fuel. Traditional electricity is sourced from fossil fuels such as coal and natural gas. When fossil fuels are burned to produce electricity, they emit harmful gases that are the primary cause of air pollution and global climate change. Not only are fossil fuels terrible for the environment, but they are also a limited resource. Because of this, the price is constantly fluctuating and can increase in a short period of time as we have seen over and over.
Renewable energy also improves public health. Coal and natural gas plants produce air and water pollution that is harmful to human health. But replacing fossil fuels with renewable energy sources, such as solar power, can reduce illness and early deaths as well as overall health care costs.
Although fossil fuel production requires significant water resources and causes water pollution, solar energy requires little to no water to operate. So, not only does solar power not pollute water resources, it also doesn’t put a strain on the world’s water supply.
Solar power also works during a drought or heat wave. Coal, natural gas and nuclear power use large amounts of water for cooling. During heat waves or severe droughts, as we’ve experienced in recent years, electricity generation is at risk. The good news is that solar power systems do not require water to generate electricity. In addition, solar power creates jobs in clean energy such as our great team at Total solutions. The U.S. has been leading the world in clean energy. Hopefully this trend will continue. As innovative and forward-thinking companies continue to embrace the changing landscape of energy production and move to renewable resources, we can improve and fight against government budget cuts to EPA and DOE.
