The positive impact of switching to Solar on the environment
Solar power generation requires less Water Usage. Solar panels do not require water to function, while conventional electricity sources use tens of thousands of litres of water every year. Additionally, fossil fuels generate harmful gasses like methane and carbon dioxide which reduce the air quality. Air pollution can hinder our health and well-being by causing anxiety, headaches, pneumonia, heart attacks, asthma, bronchitis, and allergies. Solar energy dramatically reduces carbon emissions in the air we breathe, which consequently improves your overall health.
Solar power has also proven to be a positive impact on the environment as studies have shown that transitioning to solar power from traditional energy sources has slowed down climate change.
The burning of fossil fuels increases the presence of greenhouse gases like carbon dioxide and methane into the atmosphere that contributes to enhanced greenhouse effect which is warming our planet faster than before. The consequent increase in global temperature results in the melting of glaciers, rising sea levels, which in turn causes a number of calamities like cyclones, frequent floods, extreme heat and drought. On the other hand, generating electricity from solar panels does not produce any greenhouse gases and therefore helps to slow down climate change.
We have always largely depended on coal, oil and natural gas for our energy needs. Fossil fuels are finite in nature and are non-renewable. Fossil fuel as an energy source cannot keep up with the increasing demand of energy and is a major contributor for air pollution. Solar energy, on the other hand, is abundant and can be endlessly harnessed to meet global energy consumption, reduce energy costs and ensure a stable energy future.
