The Eco Conscious Consumer
are committed to doing your part to help keep the planet healthy. This is why you do the little things like
bringing your own reusable bags to the grocery store, buying locally produced
food, and replacing your light bulbs with CFLs. It is also why you are considering taking some of the bigger steps like
upgrading your home to solar and making plans for your next vehicle to be
electric. When you think about your
legacy, it is important that you set an example for the next generation on how
to live a sustainable life.
You like knowing that within the first 3 years of your solar system’s 20+ year life, it will have already generated more energy than it took to manufacture the system. Further, by generating your home electricity where you use it, you are alleviating the strain on the electricity grid and minimizing the need for miles and miles of power lines to bring your electricity from far off coal or nuclear plants.
There are several important considerations when evaluating solar for your home. The most important ones for you, the Green Buyer, are:
1) The Green Benefits: Learn about the true environmentally-friendly
attributes of solar.
2) Choosing an Installer: Make sure the installer you choose cares as much for the environment as you.
3) The Equipment: Understand the equipment that will be installed at your home and where it comes from.
