Going Green with Solar Panels
The roof above your head can provide more than just shelter, in fact, it can help save the environment, and what's better than saving some money along the way?!?!
Universal Lofts are built specifically to accommodate solar panels. Solar panels are a growing and widely implemented alternative source of energy in California.
Traditional electricity is sourced from fossil fuels such as coal, oil and natural gas. When fossil fuels are burned to create energy, they emit toxic gases into the air. These gases are the leading cause of pollution and global warming. Not only are fossil fuels bad for the environment, but they are also a finite resource; their limited availability creates a volatile market in which energy prices can skyrocket in a short period of time.
When you use solar energy, you are drawing from a clean source: sunlight. No fossil fuels are burned, and no toxic gases are produced. Your use of solar energy helps to combat global warming and helps to reduce our collective dependency upon fossil fuel sources.
Is your loft going to make a difference? It has been estimated that a typical residence effectively releases over 10 tons of CO2 into the environment each and every year. Yes, you do make a tangible difference when you go solar!
