Everyone wants a cleaner and better future but what are the steps we, collectively and individually, can take to get there? The first and major step would be switching to solar energy. It may come as a surprise but a solar system has more benefits than just being a renewable source of energy for us. In this article we will highlight how going solar has the capability of making a greener grid.
To begin let’s understand what “The Grid” is. The grid in its most simplest of terms is what connects us to electricity. If you take a look outside it’s those tall poles with wires running up and down it, connecting peoples homes to the electricity. In some cases, they are underground, but you get the picture.
When you make that switch to solar you are no longer just pulling electricity from the grid, which is usually powered by fossil fuels; coal and natural gas, followed by nuclear.
