Cut Your Carbon Footprint

Solar panels are carbon negative after three years. As during this time they produce as much energy as was consumed during their manufacturing and installation.

Research shows over the life of a solar installation it produces on average of 20x less CO2 than coal power – at least!

These facts are based on the most cited study, conducted by Danish utility Vattenfall in 1999, which proved that solar photovoltaics produce 50 grams of carbon dioxide per kilowatt-hour of energy produced.  Coal, on the other hand, generates 974 grams of carbon dioxide per kilowatt hour.

We say at least because this study is fourteen years old, making it somewhat dated and solar technology has progressed leaps and bounds in the past decade, suggesting the disparity between the two carbon footprints could be even greater, as new solar panels are significantly more efficient. This has led to more recent claims of solar panels being 30 times “cleaner.”
