“Solar doesn’t only mean good things for our planet; it’s great for the community as well. Those who invest in solar energy will benefit from long-term energy savings, contribute to local job growth, and decrease harmful pollution into our community’s immediate atmosphere by offsetting carbon emissions.
By switching to this source of energy, you’ll invest not only into your future but into a bright and sustainable future for generations to come.”
Jonathan Norris, Green Umbrella Energy Action Team
“In essence, solar energy has been powering our lives for the last 200 years. The fossil fuels we have relied upon were the result of a natural process powered by the sun–organic material that has spent millions of years decomposing. Unfortunately, the burning of this material is causing increasing harm to our way of life.
The good news is that we have a much more efficient and sustainable way of harnessing the sun’s energy to power the things we do everyday, through solar photovoltaics. Even more encouraging, investment in a solar PV system is already more cost-effective than the cost of dirty fuel that comes from local utilities. Those of us with available roof space have the opportunity to save money and do our part to help protect our greatest resource for future generations.”
