Solar Systems Benefit the Environment

Generating electricity from solar energy reduces your consumption of fossil fuels, which decreases pollution and greenhouse gas emission. By switching to solar power, you will combat global warming and reduce our nation’s dependence on foreign energy sources. Even a small solar electric system has a significant environmental impact. For example, a 2.5kW solar system reduces CO2 emissions by an amount similar to that which would occur by planting 1 acre of trees, or the amount of CO2 emitted by a passenger car driving 7,800 miles per year.

Solar energy is not only good for your bank account-it's good for the environment, too. The utility companies get most of their power from the burning of fossil fuels, which pollute the air and are responsible for the lion's share of greenhouse-gas emissions.

Solar energy, on the other hand, is clean and non-polluting, and-unlike the burning of coal, oil, or gas–has no negative byproducts

Over the next 15 years a solar system for a typical 3 bedroom home will offset

82,000 lbs of CO2 - Carbon Dioxide is a leading cause of global climate change.

60 lbs of NOx - Nitric Oxide is a leading cause of smog.

15 lbs of particulates - Particulates are the leading cause of asthma.

15 lbs of SO2 - Sulfur dioxide is a leading cause of acid rain.
