Solar Energy in 2018: A Year in Review

This year has been an exciting time for solar energy. With new technologies rising to the surface and innovation leading our green initiative, 2018 was a year of advancement.

Let’s take a look at what we accomplished this year with solar energy!

Solar heating and cooling

As of right now, solar-powered heating and cooling systems are the most environmentally friendly and cost-effective technologies on the market. Because summer and winter can greatly affect your energy bills, utilizing these methods can save home and business owners several thousands of dollars a year.

Solar Energy in 2018

Solar panels

Solar panels are a sustainable practice, using the sun’s energy for fuel as opposed to using energy that is backed by fossil fuels. This year, we saw a huge increase in the installation of photovoltaics in homes and businesses, saving money and reducing our carbon footprint at the same time.

These technologies will continue to thrive with several states establishing new mandates in support of solar in the home.

Wearable solar tech

Solar technology can be found everywhere. From cell phones and music speakers, to tablets and more, even solar-powered flashlights charged by the sun are growing in popularity. It’s only a matter of time before our Apple Watches and FitBits are powered by solar as well.

With all of the strides we have made this year in solar energy, we are very much looking forward to seeing what 2019 has in store. At Empire Clean Energy Supply, we are focused on continuing the advancements that have been achieved this year.
