You’ve heard of carbon emissions and know they affect the Earth's ecosystem. Everything from endangered polar bears and global warming to the extreme changes in weather patterns, like the increased frequency and velocity of hurricanes, are a caused by our pollution. But there’s even more to it.
Carbon emissions happen when carbon dioxide is released into the atmosphere. Unfortunately, right now, carbon emissions result from a majority of the things we do every minute of every day.
In 2016, 35% of U.S. carbon emissions were from electricity generation.
These toxic emissions blanket the atmosphere, trapping heat in like a greenhouse. It prevents the earth from keeping a healthy homeostasis.
Fortunately, there’s a clean, renewable and affordable alternative to fossil-fueled energy. Solar energy possesses infinite potential to reduce carbon emissions. And we're here to enlighten you on just how accessible this positive energy is for your home.
In 30 years, just ONE home solar power system counteracts the carbon emissions of 166,000 lbs of coal.
Now think about this... how much more carbon emissions could reduce or potentially eliminate if an entire neighborhood went solar? Or if an entire community or town went solar?
What about an entire state, like Florida? What about an entire country, like the United States of America?
Here's what it would look like if 100% of our country transitioned to renewable energy in the next 30 years...
Contrary to common beliefs, renewable energy is achievable the future. Right now Florida homeowners have unbelievable federal tax incentives and programs to encourage and accelerate the transition to solar energy.
Additionally, Florida homeowners that capitalize on these amazing opportunities are solving a bigger issue our residents face annually while helping to improve the value of their home. How you ask?
1. We live in the sunshine state. As long as there is sun, the system is generating power because solar energy systems are designed to operate continuously.
2. Premium systems are designed to withstand up to 170 mph winds. The panels technically make roofs more secure. Also, the top solar panel brand on the market, SunPower, has cells made to keep generating power even if they are compromised. Should the panel be impacted by a tree branch or something else random, the solar panel will producing energy.
3. As long as you have a backup battery system, like Tesla Powerwall, your home's electricity will operate independently without interruption on a daily basis. Regardless of any storm or power outage.
If you haven't guessed by now where this is going, solar system designs help Florida residents take long-term preventative measures to ensure their electricity is never compromised during a hurricane.
Instead of installing or maintaining a generator as an electricity insurance policy, you can now take advantage of solar savings and solve all your problems with one system.
Pretty cool, right?
