Green Initiative

Learn about the many ways solar energy can help the environment.

The Future is Green

Renewable energy has been proven to reduce carbon emissions from harmful fossil fuels. Switching to solar helps in many ways: from producing cleaner air to saving time, money and the environment.

Our mission is to bridge the gap between renewable energy & helping
to save the world by protecting the environment and wildlife habitat
from pollution and greenhouse gas emissions.

Help the Environment

Fossil fuels create a lot of pollutants. If you’ve ever been to California, New York, China, or anyplace whose geography consists of mountains and valleys, you’ve seen what dirty air looks like.
Smog, dirty air, is bad for the environment, it’s bad for our health, and it’s bad for aesthetics. When pollutants get trapped in the air, everything just looks worse.

Solar panels help get rid of air pollution. Your solar panels create clean energy that won’t contribute to air pollution.

Reduces Greenhouse Gas and CO2 Emissions

The average Texas home consumes over 14,000 kilowatt hours of electricity annually. Even a modestly-sized solar energy system can easily reduce that number by 80% while many can even approach 100%. Even at these levels, the environmental impact of solar is substantial. Over twenty years, producing just 80% of the average home’s annual energy requirements, a solar energy system will offset the equivalent CO2 emissions from over 150,000 pounds of coal burned, or the greenhouse gas emissions from 45 tons of landfill waste! *

Reduces Water Pollution​

This one is a little less obvious, but certainly one of the biggest environmental advantages of solar. While all manufacturing processes require some water, including those used to make solar panels, the total amount of water needed to generate solar electricity is dramatically less than more traditional electricity sources. Older technologies such as nuclear, natural gas, and coal-fired facilities, all require massive amounts of water for cooling purposes. With solar energy, there’s almost no risk to local water resources, nor does their operation strain local supplies by competing with agriculture, drinking systems, and other vital water needs.​

Government Tax Incentives

The Federal Tax Credit is given to those who install solar systems on residential homes and commercial buildings in hopes to encourage green energy that is beneficial to the economy while helping the environment. When you purchase a solar power system, you can claim a 26% tax credit.
