Absolutely! Solar power reduces CO2 emissions by providing a clean and renewable source of energy. The panels that are installed on your home collect energy from the sun and convert it into usable electricity. This process does not rely on fossil fuels or other products and none of the energy is wasted because it can be stored on the grid for future use.
Moreover, solar energy reduces water pollution because PV panels do not need water to operate as other manufacturing processes do. Sunlight is converted into electricity without the need for local water supplies and solar energy doesn’t pollute our waterways like fossil fuels do.
By switching to solar powered energy, you can drastically reduce your household’s carbon footprint, which is the total greenhouse gas emissions caused by your home. Additional ways to support this lifestyle include driving less, eating more local and organic food, planting a garden, line drying clothes, and unplugging your devices at night.
