Going solar helps the environment. According to the Solar Energy Industries Association (SEIA), the solar industry has reduced carbon emissions by so much that it's the equivalent of planting about 956 million trees.
Here at Carolina Energy Conservation, we are focused on benefiting both our customers and the planet as a whole. Upgrading to a residential solar power system will not only help you live with better energy efficiency and lower utility bills, it will also make a significant difference in protecting the environment from pollution and global warming.

A safe alternative. "PV electricity contributes 96 percent to 98 percent less greenhouse gases than electricity generated from 100 percent coal and 92 percent to 96 percent less greenhouse gases than the European electricity mix." - Carol Olson, researcher at the Energy Research Center of the Netherlands
You may be thinking that making your home more energy-efficient might not have that big of an impact in the big picture - after all, you're just improving one home out of millions in the U.S. alone. Think again!
According to the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), an average household emits around 20 metric tons of carbon pollution every year, and the U.S. Green Building Council reports that buildings are responsible for about 39 percent of all carbon emissions in the country. The installation of a solar power system for a typical two-person household can reduce that home's carbon emissions by three to four tons per year. That's a significant amount and is a vital step toward reducing humanity's impact on climate change.
Solar power systems are affordable and beneficial for your home's function, helping you save on your energy costs, all while providing valuable protection for the environment. By switching to solar energy for your home, you can enjoy the improved energy efficiency while knowing that you're doing your part to decrease the effects of pollution and global warming.
