Frequently Asked Questions
What is solar energy?
Solar power is energy from the sun that is converted into thermal or electrical energy. Solar energy is the cleanest and most plentiful renewable energy source available.
What are the financial benefits of solar energy?
When you install a solar energy system on your property, you save money on your electricity bills and protect yourself against rising electricity rates in the future.
What are the environmental benefits of solar energy?
Solar power has many environmental and health benefits. Going solar reduces greenhouse gas emissions, which contribute to climate change, and also results in fewer air pollutants.
What is wind energy?
Wind energy refers to the process by which wind turbines convert the movement of wind into electricity. Winds are caused by the uneven heating of the atmosphere by the sun, the irregularities of the earth’s surface, and rotation of the earth. Wind turbines convert the kinetic energy of the moving wind into electricity.
What are the environmental benefits of wind energy?
Wind turbines do not release emissions that can pollute the air or water, and they do not require water for cooling. Wind turbines may also reduce the amount of electricity generation from fossil fuels, which results in lower total air pollution and carbon dioxide emissions.
