Solar Power & Construction: Building a Sustainable World

Solar Power & Construction: Building a Sustainable World

by Proforma Construction Inc, April 13, 2017

Is solar power in Pleasanton the way of the future? Many individuals and companies are looking to solar power to help the planet and save money in the long run. 

Humans tend to think in the short-term. Biologically, it makes sense to focus on the issues right front of us to ensure that a predator doesn’t ambush us. But we live in a very different world than our ancestors did and this short-term thinking can sometimes hurt us, as individuals and as a species. Putting profits ahead of environmental safety, and fossil fuels is one example of this.

As the climate changes, many responsible individuals and companies have turned to solar power in Pleasanton to not only help save the planet but to save money! They are thinking long-term and that is the only way real change will happen.

What is Solar Power?

Currently, most of the energy we use comes from fossil fuels which, when burned, release greenhouse gasses and trap heat inside of the planet. Solar power uses the power of the sun which is not only infinite (in human standards) but is clean energy.

Solar panels are the means by which the power of the sun is captured and converted into usable energy. They can be fitted into existing structures–normally roofs–and are being incorporated into new structures right from the design phase.

The Benefits of Solar

Solar power is associated with saving money. Of course, these savings are not immediate and they rely on patience and on the business owner/individual to have a superior long-term mindset. Savings, however, will come and they will be substantial. How much savings depends on where you reside and how much sun you get in a given year.
The second beneficiary is, of course, the planet. The less carbon dioxide that is pumped into the atmosphere, the better chance we have at reversing some of the effects climate change has already had on the planet.
