Our activities have affected our environment adversely. The greenhouse gases produced is depleting the ozone layer and causing global warming. We all are well aware of this issue and we know that we can save the environment by going green.
What exactly is Carbon Footprint?
Carbon footprint refers to the total amount of greenhouse gases produced. It is usually expressed in equivalent tons of carbon dioxide (CO2). Vehicles, factories, land clearance, construction of roads and buildings etc, emit the greenhouse gases.
Did you know the carbon footprint of US households is about five times greater than the global average? This is around 10 tons CO2 annual mission per household.
The most important action to reduce the carbon footprint is to make radical changes like switching to solar energy systems.
The Solar Energy System
Solar power is the energy of the sun. The energy of the sun is converted into electricity through the solar cells. Hundreds of solar cells are bound together to form the solar panels. These solar panels are installed on the rooftops to attract enough sunlight.
One of the good things about switching to solar power is that the energy generated is free. This source of energy is renewable and is harmless to the environment. Once the solar energy system is installed it needs little to no maintenance.
The solar energy system relies on the energy of the sun and proves to be a convenient solution to reduce your carbon footprint. You should also keep in mind that apart from installing solar energy systems, there are many other ways through which you can reduce the carbon footprints. So, its time that you go green and save the environment for a better tomorrow.
