Wok This Way has been working hard to get solar panels on our truck. Solar power is a renewable energy, meaning it’s naturally replenished and doesn’t run out. It’s also more reliable and secure than non-renewable energy. By using solar power, we can lower greenhouse gas emissions, create jobs, and save on energy costs.
Solar power is a great alternative for anyone looking to save money and help the planet. Here are just a few of the reasons to make the switch:
1. Reduced Cost
Solar panels are becoming more affordable as renewable energy becomes cost-competitive with traditional energy. The installation costs are way down at only $3 a watt. That's a 65% decrease from 10 years ago! The cost of residential solar energy has also gone down, and is 55% less than it was in 2010.
2. Economic Benefits
There are 10,000 solar businesses around the United States, employing nearly 250,000 people. By going solar, we can help create new jobs at renewable energy industries.
3. Environmental Benefits
Solar energy helps fight climate change by reducing greenhouse gas emissions. It can also improve air quality and reduce water-use.
