Why we need to encourage the utilization of green power

What is green power? It is defined as renewable energy resources and technologies that provide the best environmental benefit. The types of green power include wind power, solar power, geothermal power, biofuel, biomass power, and low impact hydroelectric power. These alternative fuel sources are potentially limitless and do not harm our environment. Green power is cleaner and more efficient than any of the conventional fuels we use today.

Condition of the planet.

According to a 2019 United Nations report, land degradation has reduced the productivity of 23% of the earth’s surface. This puts almost $600 million dollars worth of crops at risk and an additional 300 million people at risk of hurricanes and floods. Over 60% of the world’s marine environments have been drastically changed. Today, there are more than 400 dead zones in the oceans caused by plastic pollution, which has increased by 100% since 1980. The report goes further to state that due to climate change these trends may continue into 2050. Global warming is not only real but it is here with record-setting temperatures and catastrophic weather.

The importance of green energy

Green energy is important because it reduces the carbon footprint of humanity. It is also important because the implementation of green power raises awareness of the problem. Conventional power from coal, oil, and others creates air pollution and poisons our environment. It also creates greenhouse gases that suffocate those who live within the environment. When more people turn to green energy solutions it creates jobs and literally allows us all to breathe better. Green power is also important to companies because it lowers fuel cost. It also builds confidence in the employees that work for green-conscious organizations. It can also be seen as a type of branding for a business. 

How to go green at home and work

Solar panels are a great way to go green and save on tax incentives in most parts of the United States. In addition, this creates independence from the electric company, who may be paying you to be a part of the electric grid. Solar power is quickly rising as an alternative power source; becoming more efficient and cheaper to produce and install every year. Today, one of the largest growing utilities is solar power. There are other steps to take to make your home energy efficient. You can use energy efficient lighting around your home or office which can cut your electric bill. You can start recycling paper, plastic, and metals at home and at work. You can use file sharing websites instead of copying paper for office manuals and materials.
