Are Solar Panels Good for the Environment?

This question might sound like an oxymoron, but it’s one we get frequently. As the solar industry continues to grow, some people have raised concerns about how it will impact the environment. Big picture: Yes, solar panels are great for the environment. They provide a highly efficient, sustainable form of energy (and save users money!). You just have to choose a quality manufacturer and installer that follow industry standards for sustainability.

What are the environmental benefits of going solar?

If you don’t have a way to store your solar energy, it has to be used the moment it’s generated. This isn’t a pro

Unlike coal and natural gas, the electricity produced by solar panels is clean, renewable, and pollution-free. Harnessing the power of the sun is also safer and cheaper than mining or drilling into the Earth. Studies have found that solar systems generate almost 20 times less carbon than fossil fuels. This makes a significant contribution to combating climate change.

Another important benefit of solar is how it impacts local air quality in communities on the Central Coast and beyond. According to the National Renewable Energy Laboratory, widespread solar adoption can significantly reduce harmful emissions that cause health problems, like chronic bronchitis and other respiratory and cardiovascular diseases.

How to choose the right solar panels for your property

As we mentioned above, you have to choose the right manufacturer and installer to make sure you get the most efficient and eco-friendly solar system. Not all solar panels are created equal. At A.M.
