07 Mar How Solar Energy is Saving the Planet
Most Americans rely on fossil fuels—namely, coal, oil, and natural gas—for energy and power. This form of power has worked in the past, but with increasing pressure on Earth’s finite resources and the fading ozone layer, it may be time to start looking into alternative power sources. This is where the sun comes in; the sun provides us with an unlimited and renewable source of energy, allowing you to create your own energy and not rely on the utility companies and their fossil fuels.
What’s At Stake
When you burn fossil fuels, they release harmful gasses that are not only dangerous for humans, but for the environment as well. These gasses pollute the air we breathe and contribute to global warming by wearing down the ozone layer—the layer that protects us from the sun’s harmful UV rays and keeps our climate moderate and livable.
Don’t Drink The Water
The burning of fossil fuels not only pollutes the air we breathe, but the water we drink as well. Power plants that utilize fossil fuels require a lot of water to provide the needed cooling requirements. Solar, on the other hand, requires no water and does not put even more strain on the local water needs.
Baby Ain’t Ever Gonna Come Back
Since fossil fuels are a nonrenewable resource, once they’re gone, they’re gone forever. As these resources dwindle, prices will go up and power will become scarcer for everyone. By creating and relying on your own source of renewable energy, you can reduce your carbon footprint—the average solar system that we install reduces approximately 21,500 pounds of carbon dioxide emissions each year—and save money. That’s the equivalent to 10,500 pounds of coal that you’re not burning when you invest in solar panels for your home.
