Live Solar Electric Generation
Provides environmental benefits.
Renewable energy generators emit no carbon dioxide and, thus, do not contribute to climate change.
Sustains the Local Economy
The dollars spent on renewable energy projects are usually circulated locally, not overseas, creating more community jobs and fostering local economic growth.
Improves Energy Independence
The vast majority of conventional energy reserves are located overseas, while renewable fuel is local and abundant.
Encourages Price Stability
Volatile fossil fuel costs create unpredictable electricity prices. Renewable energy prices are stable and help reduce the volatility of our electricity bills.
While many experts predict fossil fuel production will peak in the near future, renewable sources of energy will never run out.
