Solar energy can help you combat climate change. Every year we take steps to better and improve our livelihoods and taking the steps to better our environment should be no different. Many climate change experts have been warning people about the threats to the environment for several years. It is only in recent years we have seen some of the consequences of our actions such as increased storms and wildfires that were prominent throughout 2021 and are expected to continue over the coming years. However, Irish citizens are trying to combat such environmental changes with the inclusion of solar energy both in their homes and businesses.
Read on to learn more about what solar energy is and how it can help you combat climate change.
What is solar energy?
Solar energy is energy that is generated by the sun, which is then converted into usable electricity for human use. Solar PV panels harnesses the energy generated by the sun with the help of PV panels that capture the energy and convert into free solar electricity for your use. Experts agree that solar energy is the most renewable source of energy as the sun will never lose its supply. Solar energy can be used for a number of purposes such as generating electricity, heating your water, and charging your vehicle.
How Solar Panel Systems Fight Climate Change?
While many home and business owners install solar PV panels to help reduce their electricity bills, however, the system will also help reduce their carbon footprints, sometimes without even realising. Solar systems help combat climate change as they do not emit greenhouse gas emissions in comparison to your conventional fossil fuel systems.
As mentioned above fossil fuels such as coal, oil or gas, are extremely harmful to our environment resulting in a major concern. When you burn fossil fuels carbon dioxide is released into our environment which ends up getting trapped in the atmosphere.
The transition to solar panels will reduce the toxic waste being expelled into the environment through landfills.
