February is the month of love, so we felt it appropriate to share with you our reasons why we love solar at Direct Energy Solar. Going solar is an exciting leap to a new level of energy efficiency, independence and conservation.
We love that solar power allows people everywhere to own their energy future.
By going solar, you are leading the charge and liberating yourself from your utility company. You are taking ownership of your future energy expenses. You are installing a consistent, reliable source of power on your roof.
We love that solar power helps our planet.
The SEIA reports that solar energy has offset 37 million metric tons of CO2 emissions, equivalent to planting 956 million trees! By going solar, you are taking ownership of your impact on our planet. You are making Mother Earth a cleaner, healthier place for the future.
We love that solar power employs thousands of people in the United States.
Hundreds of thousands of people, to be exact. According to a new study from the The Solar Foundation’s National Solar Jobs Census 2016, the number of solar workers in the United States totaled 260,077. Over the past 12 months, more than one in 50 jobs in the United States were created by the solar industry.
That number is expected to increase by 10% in the next 12 months.
We’re hiring too, by the way!
We love coming to work every day and making a difference.
…making a difference in our customers’ energy expenses.
…making a difference in our environment impact.
…making a difference in how we think about and consume energy.
