Environmental FAQs

Most people go solar for the financial benefits. But the environmental impact of going solar provides incentives as compelling as the benefits to your bank account. Check out these Environmental FAQs and give yourself a pat on the back for being a Save the World Superhero.

Q: How does Solar Affect my Carbon Footprint?

A: On average, solar reduces the carbon footprint of a home by approximately 50­,100 tons of C0​2 emissions. That is equal to planting 100 trees every year or not driving for the next 10 years.  You would have to recycle for the next 500 years to equal the carbon footprint offset of solar panels on your roof.

Q: Can Solar Panels be Recycled?

A: Yes.  Almost all components of a solar panel can be recycled or can be used to generate energy through biomass combustion.  

Q: Are Some Solar Panels Better for the Environment than others?

A: Yes. Cheaper products are not designed and/or tested to be recycled.
