Improve Your Home & the Planet
While Earth Day is April 21, April is known as Earth Month, with a month-long emphasis on improving the planet. So, what can you do this year to help the earth? If you haven't already, you should consider installing a solar energy system on your property.
Now more than ever, it is important that we talk about how we can reduce carbon emissions by adopting solar energy to power our homes. Solar-generated electricity lowers carbon emissions, positively affecting climate change. Plus, when combined with a battery backup, a solar energy system provides the best protection from blackouts caused by extreme weather conditions.
US Carbon Reduction Goals
First and foremost, solar-generated energy will help meet the nation's carbon reduction goals of achieving a 50-52% reduction from 2005 levels by 2030. Announced by President Biden during the Leaders Summit on Climate, Americans are being called upon to strive for net-zero emissions economy-wide by 2050. While these big goals can seem overwhelming, there is a lot individual homeowners can do to help further the cause.
Roof-top or ground-mounted solar panels and backup battery storage systems will provide the necessary energy service to keep your home running, including any life-saving medical devices. Your solar panel and battery combination system will also keep essential appliances running when bad weather knocks out the power grid, such as your HVAC system and refrigerator, ensuring you stay comfortable and your food stays fresh.
Other benefits to going solar in your home include:
- Achieve energy independence from utility providers
- Combat rising energy costs
- Supply your household with on-demand energy
- Reduce harmful emissions that come from burning fossil fuels
- Improve the value of your home
- Save money on your monthly utility bills
Why Solar Energy Is Growing in Popularity
There is a reason that solar energy systems are now mainstream, especially in California. Think about it; you must know a family member, friend, and/or coworker who has been raving about their new solar system. Solar energy systems help homeowners save money with cleaner, safer energy, and California has plentiful sunshine year-round, making it the ideal place for solar.
Furthermore, with the challenges utility companies face in providing clean, safe, and affordable energy, it is time to consider turning to an alternative and clean energy source. Fossil fuels are the old way of providing energy; why rely on antiquated systems when other viable options exist? Powering your home with the sun is a great solution to the reliance on the utility company.
