Solar and wind can put us on track to stop climate change in its tracks. If current trends continue, we will meet our worldwide climate target of 1.5° C.
Meeting this goal would be excellent news for our planet. However, this means rapid and accelerating mass adoption of solar and wind. It’s “go time,” put simply.
Thankfully, this most recent wave of good news should incentivize and empower people to take action. But unfortunately, many people may be feeling powerless in the face of the sheer scale of the climate crisis.
Solar is one of the easiest ways to stop climate change
However, this recent news is evidence that we can make an impact together. If enough people continue to make the switch to solar, we can do our part to stop climate change together. At least as far as the solar and wind industry are concerned.
After all, the environmental crisis is a complicated beast. There are many aspects to consider regarding the best ways to reverse the effects of climate change and save the planet.
Energy policy thinktank Ember states “Solar and wind are on track to meet climate goals, as long as we maintain a 10-year compound annual growth rate of 20%.”
In other words, limiting the global average temperature increase to 1.5° C is still within our grasp. With this in mind, we need to figure out how to make the switch to solar easy, quick, and painless.
Teamwork makes the dream work
After all, the most recent IPCC report says that we have approximately 3 years left to curb the worst effects of climate change. Therefore, we recommend switching to solar as quickly as possible.
The best option for people who want an easy, quick, and painless solution is community solar.
However, if you’re interested in installing solar on your own roof, and willing to undergo a screening process, we can talk about rooftop solar too.
Either way, we have great options for both homeowners as well as renters. Our number one goal is to save you money and save the planet. Sometimes we can do both!
As always, it’s not enough to just focus on ourselves. It’s a group effort, after all. So don’t forget about the importance of contributing to climate organizations, if you have the means, and won’t miss a few extra bucks each month.
Our referral program also allows you to earn $1,000 for every rooftop solar deal you refer to us. Many people working together to make small changes can make a big difference.
We are making progress, and we need to continue to work together. That’s why we encourage supporting climate organizations, and that’s why we have such a great referral program.
Teamwork is how we will stop climate change.
