Green Benefits

Solar energy has many attractive benefits but one that has many interested is the environmental green benefits. Solar energy is clean, non-polluting, renewable and very dependable. Producing electricity from solar energy causes significant reduction in consumption of fossil fuels, which results in decreasing pollution and greenhouse gas emissions. Greenhouse gases are known as gases that trap heat in the atmosphere. They are gases that are occurring both naturally and by human activity. One of the main greenhouse gases causing an alarming amount of danger to global warming is Carbon Dioxide (CO2). “Carbon dioxide enters the atmosphere through the burning of fossil fuels (oil, natural gas, and coal). Carbon dioxide is also removed from the atmosphere (or “sequestered”) when it is absorbed by plants as part of the biological carbon cycle”.
Solar energy produces energy that contains ZERO carbon dioxide emissions, which results in cleaner energy, helps the fight in global warming and reduces our dependency on foreign fossil fuels. Each and every solar home electric system makes a strong positive impact on our environment.

For example, over a 25 year period a typical 5 kW solar electric system offsets:
300,000 lbs of CO2
33,125 gallons of gasoline
62 acres of trees
Equivalent to not driving 360,000 miles
