Build solar panels for houses to take importance off delivering energy through long power lines and place it on renewable energy (which has their own problems!)
By generating and storing energy in our homes, we can share power across neighbourhoods and our entire energy system. We have been building this future for over a decade, and every year it grows brighter
- 74% of Americans think we should use solar “as much as possible”
- Offset the equivalent of 4.1 Billion lbs. of coal burned due to people installing solar panels on the roofs of their homes
- Saved households over $300 million in electricity costs.
The Company - Impact Story
Proposed Solution for California Wildfires California’s devastating wildfires are becoming more common and destructive, and will continue to threaten our country’s people and energy systems. At a minimum, increased penetration of home solar and batteries may help prevent sagging lines that may spark in vegetation and cause wildfires. When high power flows through the lines, they can heat up and sag.
Moreover, home solar and batteries can enable customers to continue to have power when the utility is forced to de-energize the lines frequently during high winds.
