Use less water

Australia, is one of the driest continents on the planet. Water is a precious natural resource where thousands and thousands of tonnes are used in ‘traditional electricity production. From cooling, processing, refining and transporting fuel through pipes. Solar requires no water usage, reducing the strain on a natural resource. Natural rain water is enough to keep solar panels clean.

Reduces air pollution

Air pollution has been linked to many illnesses and health conditions. The air we breathe directly affects our health and wellbeing. Traditional electricity generates harmful carbon dioxide and methane gases that lower the quality of the air we breath. Solar generated energy doesn’t produce harmful emissions, meaning the more households and businesses using solar energy equates to a less toxic emissions in the air we breathe.

Slow climate change

Human activities, burning fossil fuels (like coal) to produce electricity have meant a forced increased in natural greenhouse effects speeding the natural progression of the earth’s temperature. This is directly caused by the emissions produced by burning fossil fuels and is a core issue around Global Warming. Solar energy doesn’t produce greenhouse gases offsetting natural greenhouse effects.

Reduces household carbon footprint

As a sustainable renewable energy source, you can personally contribute to a greener world by reducing your carbon footprint; with no water required to produce and the emission of greenhouse gasses into the atmosphere.

Reducing reliance on fossil fuels

As a resource, fossil fuels are finite, pretty clear here that solar isn’t! We have an abundant resource of energy that when harnessed globally for one hour could power the world for 1 whole year! As a finite resource, the demand in pricing based on supply is a constant element of financial uncertainty on the global economic landscape. Solar energy provides a solution to many obstacles we face on a daily basis being sustainability, cost effectiveness and a cleaner prospect of the future.
