Fossil fuels are finite and causes harm to the environment, where solar power can help alleviate our global pollution concerns. The EPA (Environmental Protection Agency) reports the average American exhausts 16,000lbs of carbon dioxide every year through energy use – the equivalent of destroying 24 trees for each home.
We need to get serious about limiting our carbon footprint. Something as simple as turning down the heating by 2 degrees can reduce CO2 emissions by 406 lbs, or $31 of fuel energy. Even spending one less minute showering can lower carbon emissions by 23 lbs of gas. It is clear installing home solar systems make a difference to our planet and not just the wallet.
