Environmental Benefits of Solar in Central Ohio

Another happy central Ohio family reduces their carbon footprint by installing solar panels

Renewable Energy is Great for the Planet

Converting to solar energy is the biggest personal change you can make to fight global warming. Utility companies in Ohio supply over 90% of electricity by burning fossil fuels—the leading cause of climate change. Generating electric power causes over a third of all greenhouse gas emissions in the United States (source: Environmental Protection Agency). Reducing the electricity we draw from the grid by using solar means reducing carbon emissions. That means cleaner air, water and soil for your family, community, and for generations to come.

A Measurable Difference

Solar panels have a life of 30-40 years (many from the 1960’s and 70’s are still in operation), so once you install your solar panels, the environmental benefits last for decades.

If you install a 7.5 kW solar power system in Ohio, it is the environmental equivalent of not driving 608,085 miles in an average car or taking two cars off the road for 25 years, or planting 3.2 acres of trees. This size of system will offset 373,000 lbs of CO2 emissions over 25 years.
