Your energy, your health

How your energy choices affect public health

Our reliance on fossil fuels has had devastating consequences on our environment and human health. The coal, gas and oil we burn to generate electricity emits hundreds of toxic pollutants into the air, causing increased instances of lung and cardiovascular health issues.

As a consumer, you have the power to choose a cleaner option. Going solar is one of the most effective ways to cut your own carbon footprint and reduce reliance on fossil fuels. By making the switch to solar, you can help reduce harmful air pollution and contribute to a cleaner, healthier planet for everyone.

We’ve partnered with one of the most trusted solar industry experts, EnergySage, to offer independent educational resources and the ability to explore your solar options from the comfort of your home.
