Solar power systems derive clean, pure energy from the sun. Installing a solar system 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, which is not a long-term prospect. Not anymore. Solar power is renewable at absolutely no cost to supply energy infinitely.
Sunlight received by earth in one hour is enough to meet the annual energy needs of all people worldwide according to National Renewable Energy Laboratory. In 2015 solar energy was the fastest growing energy sector with a 33% rise according to Bloomberg.
Solar is a safe alternative which can replace current fossil fuels like coal and gas for generation of electricity that produce air, water, and land pollution. World Wide Fund For Nature, also known as the World Wildlife Fund (WWF), notes that electricity generation from fossil fuels causes pollution of air leading to acid rain, damaged forest areas, and affected agricultural production leading to loss of billions of dollars worldwide. Fracking for example uses thousands of liters of water mixed with chemicals for extraction contaminating the water used, along with nearby water bodies, and also causes earthquakes. Nuclear power pollutes water and land and has caused environmental catastrophes. Use of solar energy will eliminate these unsafe, unclean consequences from using conventional fossil fuels.
Pristine forests are destroyed for mining raw materials like fossil or nuclear fuels. Trees constantly remove and use carbon dioxide from the air to make their food, and this carbon is then stored in them. When forests are cut for mining raw materials for conventional energy, this major carbon sink disappears and also increases climate change. “Nine out of ten animals on land” live in forests, according to WWF, and a loss of habitats diminishes their populations. Switching to solar power is important to keep these habitats intact for the animals who live there as well as continue to keep the air clean.
Well we all know about this. It’s a FACT. And it’s here. We all need to do our part. For the well being of our children, and their children, and their children…….
Stephen Hawking made a statement saying “if we don’t halt global warming, and we’re at the point of it being irreversible, we’ll eventually be living on a planet that’s 250 degrees Celsius. Unable to sustain life.
