Massive environmental threats to humanity are on the rise, so it’s important for companies to make eco-conscious decisions. At AMAROK, we power our electric security fences entirely with solar energy; an underutilized, sustainable, infinite resource. These are the top 4 environmental and health benefits of utilizing solar energy.
No Electric Bills or Power Outages
The first benefit of solar panels include saving money on your electric bills. Solar power is essentially free- after the initial setup cost. There are no installation costs included with the perimeter security systems provided by AMAROK. If you lose power to your solar electric fence and security system is engineered to stay armed for three to seven days, protecting your business.
Reduces Air Pollution
You might not think electricity has a direct impact on air pollution, but the way it’s produced is where the problem lies. According to EnergySage, “Most of the electricity generated in the U.S. comes from fossil fuels like coal and natural gas. Extracting and using fossil fuels is expensive and harmful to the environment”. A benefit of solar energy includes the reduction of air pollution. If solar energy were to become the new standard, $167 billion in health and environmental damages would be eliminated.
Fights Climate Change
Burning fossil fuels for electricity is a large producer of greenhouse gasses. According to Ecomark Solar, “31% of all greenhouse gas emissions in the United States come from electricity production, a shocking statistic, especially when methane and carbon dioxide emissions are major contributors to global warming.” One of the many benefits of solar energy includes the elimination of greenhouse gasses that are contributing to global warming.
Using solar energy produces no greenhouse gasses and doesn’t support global warming.
Cuts Down Water Consumption
The U.S. Office of Energy Efficiency & Renewable Energy states a benefit of solar energy includes the reduction of water consumption in at least 36 states. This is because traditional electricity production methods are heavy in water use. Solar panels and energy only require sunlight. This form of energy can produce electricity without using water at all.
The benefits of solar energy far outweigh any drawbacks (which would be hard to come by). While it may be difficult to implement solar, securing your property with The Electric Guard Dog™ fence is an easy first step.
