Today we are becoming more "green" than ever. Conserving energy is no longer a practice limited to the Amish. Conservation is the key to sustainability. This is something the Amish, Native Americans, Homesteaders and outdoor-lovers alike are all aware of. Conservation. Taking only what you need and storing the rest. How does this apply to plumbing, you ask?
Well, solar power isn't just a novelty of the late seventies flower children. It's a real way to save and conserve money and energy while leaving little to no carbon footprint.
Heating your home's water with solar power is something that has been possible to do for a few decades now. When concern of climate change due to the result of industrial pollution gave a more serious tenor to solar power. As a result, inn 2012, 83,000 American homeowners installed solar energy systems, up 55 percent from the previous year. There are three factors driving this explosion: a glut of cheap panels manufactured mainly in China, a 30 percent federal tax break on installation through 2016, and the rise of third-party leasing companies like Sunrun that practically eliminate start-up costs for homeowners like Lieser, who can't afford installation on their own.
Have we convinced you yet? Give us a call today. Solar power is the way to go. Go green or go to the poor house.
