It’s no secret that solar panels offer a greener, more sustainable solution to generating power and electricity. With climate change becoming an increasingly relevant topic, many businesses are converting to solar energy to do their bit for the environment. Let’s take a look at just a few ways solar panels can help the environment.
Solar Panels Provide Renewable Energy
One of the biggest appeals of solar panels is their ability to provide a renewable source of energy. The world’s supply of fossil fuels is finite, with many predicting that gas and oil will be completely depleted in just over 50 years if we continue to burn them at such a high rate. Indeed, it’s thought that 4billion tonnes of crude oil are consumed each year.
Solar panels harness the power of the sun to provide energy, and will do until the sun burns itself out. It’s likely that humanity as we know it will be long gone before then, so there’s nothing to worry about there! Installing solar panels on your property ensures that you are helping to solve the climate crisis and means you are not contributing to the depletion of natural resources.
Solar Panels Are Emission Free
Not only are fossil fuels running out, but they also cause enormous harm to the environment. We’ve all heard of the greenhouse effect and holes in the ozone layer, but these issues are no longer an apocalyptic fantasy. The polar ice caps are melting at a record rate, and the world is subjected to increasingly extreme weather such as flooding and hurricanes.
The increase in emissions since the industrial revolution correlates with the increased temperature of the Earth. Furthermore, byproducts that result in the burning of fossil fuels are a danger to public health in many areas of the world.
Solar panels do not release any dangerous pollutants whatsoever, which does a world of good to both the natural and social environment.
Solar Panels Reduce Water Pollution
Many byproducts of fossil fuel consumption are dumped into the oceans which leads to catastrophic effects to these ecosystems. Water pollution leads to extinction of marine life, unclean water supplies, disruptions to the food chain (both ours and the animals’) and much, much more.
With solar panels you can rest easy with a clear conscience, knowing that you’re not adding to the desecration of our seas.
