Investing in Solar is Investing in the Environment
Reducing the Impact of Passenger Cars
Did you know that investing in solar panels for your home provides a similar impact to removing 2 passenger cars from the road on a yearly basis? When you think about the average amount a vehicle travels in a given year, that’s a pretty remarkable feat! At the end of the day, being able to have that kind of impact just by installing solar panels is incredible.
Thousands of Trees
We know that making the decision to invest in solar is a big one, but you’ll be surprised to know that the average solar project is equal to planting and growing nearly 7,000 tree seedlings for an entire decade. That’s unbelievable, and when you do the math, that equals approximately 215 acres of land — just by adding solar panels to your home.
How Else Does Solar Impact Our Environment?
Simply put, having solar panels on your home means you don’t have to rely on using other resources that are harmful to the environment. That means an annual impact of around 600 fewer barrels of oil used during a year. The concept of oil barrels can be difficult to grasp, but that saving that much oil equates to around 26,000 fewer driving miles.
Is Solar Right For You?
When you go green with solar, it saves you green as well. There are a number of solar savings programs that people should know about, because in addition to making an impact on the environment, it makes an impact on the amount of money left in your pocket — and who couldn’t use some extra money?
