The Current Dilemma

The leading cause of smog, acid rain, and toxic air pollution in the U.S. is burning coal. Each year the U.S. produces one million short tons of coal. The single largest consumer of produced coal is electric power. Fossil fuel-fired power plants are responsible for 70% of the nation’s sulfur dioxide emissions and 40% of carbon dioxide emissions from the combustion of fossil fuels.

It doesn't have to be this way. We can do better.

of the world’s resources is used by the US, despite making up only 5% of the world' population
of the American population is exposed to unhealthy air according to The American Lung Association

SEVERITY OF AIR POLLUTION

“More hazardous pollutants are discharged into the air each year than are released to surface water, ground water, and land, combined.”

EFFECTS OF AIR POLLUTION ON NATURE

“Pollutants in the air create smog and acid rain, cause cancer or other serious health effects, diminish the protective ozone layer in the upper atmosphere…”

EFFECTS OF AIR POLLUTION ON HEALTH

“Air pollution has also been linked to bladder cancer and also changes in brain functions like learning and short-term memory.”

What is Solar Energy?

"radiant light and heat from the Sun that is harnessed using a range of ever-evolving technologies..."

"Electricity can be produced directly from photovoltaic, PV, cells. (Photovoltaic literally means “light” and “electric.”) These cells are made from materials which exhibit the “photovoltaic effect” i.e. when sunshine hits the PV cell, the photons of light excite the electrons in the cell and cause them to flow, generating electricity."

"Solar energy is the cleanest and most abundant renewable energy source available, and the U.S. has some of the richest solar resources in the world."
