Climate change and solar power

Climate change and solar power

11 March 2022 2 min read
  • 2020 was the hottest year on record, tying with 2016.
  • The average annual Northern Hemisphere snow cover was among the lowest between 1967-2020.
  • Carbon dioxide, methane, and nitrous oxide, the three main elements driving climate change, have reached the highest levels in the atmosphere.

Climate change is real and here to stay unless we make some drastic moves to halt the adverse effects of climate change, such as an increase in the frequency of natural disasters, extinction of animal species and serious effects on people’s lives and health.

Renewable energy i.e. energy from resources that are naturally replenished on a human timescale has to be used. They can be replenished and are not harmful like using fossil fuels to generate energy.

Solar power is the best energy source to combat climate change

Solar energy is the way to go among the various renewable energy sources considering the amount of sunlight Earth receives and the rapidly evolving technology around solar solutions. Humans must utilize solar power optimally as it can help protect our environment in various ways:

Solar energy is good for the environment

Utilizing solar power for our energy needs decreases emissions of CO2 as there will be reduced usage of fossil fuels. It will minimize greenhouse gas emissions and reduce our carbon footprint. In this manner, we can stall climate change, and with widespread use, even revert the harmful effects of climate change in the long run.

Solar energy improves our standard of living

Usage of solar energy means pollution levels are lower and the environment is cleaner. This will positively impact our health as people will have better air to breathe and reduce respiratory and cardiovascular problems.

Solar energy is widely useable

Solar energy solutions are easy to install at both small-scale and large-scale levels. GreenBrilliance has expertise and experience in delivering turnkey solar solutions for homes, offices and government organizations. Once installed, they start giving results in the form of zero emissions, reduced use of water for generation and quickly begin paying back on the investment in the form of reduced energy costs.

Solar energy reduces dependence on conventional electricity grids

With solar energy, grid dependence can be reduced, which will result in lower utility bills, independence from power outage and rising electricity prices. It will also mean you use less non-renewable energy, contributing to a greener planet. Many of our customers who have installed an integrated solar system look forward to many years of zero CO2 emissions and energy bills netting to zero.

Climate change is a complex problem, and we all have to work towards solving it. Switching to solar is an effective way to contribute to combating climate change.
