What Are All The Benefits of Using Solar Energy?
Switching to solar will reduce your carbon footprint. Studies have shown that solar homes generate 80% fewer carbon emissions than homes that use fossil fuels. A U.S. Energy Information Administration study found that homes in CT that use solar reduce their emissions to equal 150 new trees planted/ per year.
There is no cost to produce solar energy.
Solar allows you to generate clean energy that you can store, sell and use to power your home.
Battery storage systems allow you to use electricity even when the power is out.
Reduce water usage. Fossil fuel production requires water for cooling. 38% percent of the United States freshwater goes to cooling during power generation. Solar production does not require any water to cool.
