It’s likely no surprise that people in our industry truly believe that using solar power is important. It’s important for many reasons, not the least of which is the long-term savings you’ll experience as you become less dependent on the existing energy grid. But here are three reasons other than financial that we believe make solar power an absolute must in your Boise area home or business.
SOLAR MEANS LESS OVERALL DEMAND ON “THE GRID”
Not only does your home or business use less electricity (sometimes none) thanks to solar technology, our country becomes less dependent on other fuel sources by harnessing the power of the sun. Simply put, by adding solar energy solutions, you help America regain its energy independence. The sun is a virtually unlimited resource for clean, renewable power. We make a statement when adding solar to our homes or businesses. We will not be dependent on anyone for power.
SOLAR REDUCES YOUR CARBON FOOTPRINT
Regardless of which side of the argument you fall, climate change is a hot topic in our society. Using the clean and renewable solar power that’s available to us, we can do our part to help reduce our overall carbon footprint. According to EnergySage.com, “a typical residential solar panel system will eliminate three to four tons of carbon emissions each year—the equivalent of planting over 100 trees annually.”
CONSTANTLY IMPROVING TECHNOLOGY
The solar energy field is the future. Technology companies, inventors, investors, etc., all know this fact. Therefore, the solar energy field is one that is growing quickly. It is quickly becoming more efficient and effective to have solar photovoltaic panels for electricity production or evacuated solar tubes for solar thermal water. As our population grows and the stress on the existing power grid increases, solar technology will look to help ease some of those growing pains. It’s important to be there early and take advantage of the booming growth.
There are many, many reasons to claim your energy independence today by using solar power. These are just a few. Ask yourself how you would benefit the most personally from making the change to solar.
