What are the environmental benefits of solar energy?
There are many environmental benefits of solar energy including reduction of greenhouse gas emissions which contribute to climate change and reduces our dependence on fossil fuels. Traditional electricity is sourced from fossil fuels such as coal and natural gas. When fossil fuels are burned to produce electricity, they emit harmful gases which are the primary cause of air pollution and global warming. Fossil fuels are bad for the environment and our budgets as energy prices have the ability to increase dramatically and as a utility customer, we just simply have to pay the bill. As a solar energy generator, you have much more control over your energy costs.
