Solar power systems derive clean, pure energy from the sun. When you install solar panels on your home, you help to combat greenhouse gas emissions and global warming and reduce our collective dependence on fossil fuel.
Traditional electricity is sourced from fossil fuels such as coal 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.
Not only are fossil fuels bad for the environment, they are also a finite resource—their limited availability creates a volatile market in which energy prices can skyrocket in a short period of time.
