Uses Less Water
In Australia, water is one of our most precious natural resources. We live on the driest continent on the planet and, as a result, we’re at risk of running out of fresh water in the future. Every year, traditional electricity production uses thousands of litres of water for cooling generators, processing and refining fuel and transporting fuel through pipes. On the other hand, electricity generated through solar panels uses no water whatsoever, which reduces the strain on this precious resource.
Reduces Air Pollution
Traditional electricity generation from fossil fuels results in harmful greenhouse gases being released into the environment, consequently lowering the quality of air we breathe. Breathing poor quality air over long periods of time can have devastating consequences for our health. Unlike traditional sources of electricity, solar energy is green, clean and renewable. When using electricity sourced from solar energy, no greenhouse gases or other pollutants are released into the air.
Reduces Your Home’s Reliance on Fossil Fuels
In Australia, solar energy supplies are huge! The sunshine used for solar energy production is free and there is a lot of it. On the other hand, the supply of fossil fuels is running out. By reducing your reliance on these limited resources and leveraging from the abundant, free source of energy, such as sunlight, you can lower your energy prices, reduce greenhouse gas emissions and contribute to a stronger, more sustainable energy future.
