Clean Energy = Clean Environment!
The Midwest is dotted with dirty coal power plants and dangerous nuclear reactors causing hazardous air and water pollution, resources critical to our healthy survival. Every installed PV system reduces the need for such power sources by utilizing the most abundant form of energy in our galaxy – the sun!
Solar dramatically reduces greenhouse gases such as carbon dioxide, nitrogen oxides, and sulfur dioxide. For example:
- A 2-panel solar hot water prevents 1.6 tons of CO2 emissions every year!
- A 5-panel solar heat & hot water system prevents 3 tons of CO2 annually.
- A 3 kW PV array can displace 7,000 lbs CO2 per year, the equivalent of planting 1.25 acres of trees annually.
Solar provides practical solutions to environmental issues that threaten our planet.
Simple and Reliable: Solar thermal and solar electric energy is fully automatic and requires little to no maintenance. With no moving parts, both systems are durable with a panel life expectancy of over 25 years.
Distributed Generation is efficient by design! Transmitting power hundreds of miles is costly and inefficient. Why not generate power on-site where it is needed?!
