Environmental Benefits

Power Your Business with Renewable Energy

Solar power systems derive clean, pure energy from the sun. When your business implements solar, you help to combat global warming and reduce our collective dependence on fossil fuel.

Reduce Your Carbon Footprint

Traditional electricity is sourced from fossil fuels such as coal, oil and natural gas. When fossil fuels are burned to create energy, they emit toxic gases that are the primary cause of pollution and global warming. Solar energy is abundant, clean and pure.

Promote Yourself as a Green Business

By installing solar, you are demonstrating your environmental leadership. Customers, employees and investors are more likely to do business with organizations employing environmentally-sustainable practices.

Comply With Greenhouse Gas Emission Targets

Several government and industry agencies have set annual greenhouse emission targets to curb climate change. For example, The Global Warming Solutions Act of 2006 (AB32) establishes a timeline to bring California into compliance with the Kyoto Protocol by reducing the state's greenhouse gas emissions 25% by 2020.

Installing solar in advance of government mandates not only improves our planet but also sets you up for potential financial gain. In Cap and Trade programs, each company is issued an annual limit or "cap" on the amount of pollutants that can be emitted. Companies that install solar can reduce their emissions below the cap and sell or "trade" their credits to other companies that are not in compliance.
