Comparing the True Cost of Utility Company Electricity with that of Solar Energy
Conventional fuel sourcesoil, gas, coal, nuclearhave created a huge number of environmental problems. We pay with tax dollars, with higher prices for consumer goods, and with lower quality of life for acid rain, smog, water pollution, overflowing waste disposal dumps, the steady loss of natural resources, global warming and destruction of natural habitats.
Solar technology is allowing us to avoid many of these potential disasters. The silicon from one ton of sand has the potential to produce as much electricity as 500,000 tons of coal. One medium sized solar system will save the earth from 6,000 lbs. of carbon dioxide pollution.
