All-electric vehicles (EVs) run on electricity only. They are propelled by one or more electric motors powered by rechargeable battery packs. Electric vehicles have several advantages over conventional vehicles:
Energy Efficient. EVs convert over 77% of the electrical energy from the grid to power at the wheels. Conventional gasoline vehicles only convert about 12%–30% of the energy stored in gasoline to power at the wheels.
Environmentally Friendly. EVs emit no tailpipe pollutants, although the power plant producing the electricity may emit them. Electricity from nuclear-, hydro-, solar-, or wind-powered plants causes no air pollutants.
Performance Benefits. Electric motors provide quiet, smooth operation and stronger acceleration and require less maintenance than internal combustion engines (ICEs).
Reduced Energy Dependence. Electricity is a domestic energy source.
In addition to their ability to decrease expenses, solar technologies are a large component in curbing national carbon emissions and mitigating our negative impact on global climate change. While the generation of solar energy yields no greenhouse gas emission or negative environmental impact, more than a third of the carbon emissions in the U.S. are a result of fossil fuels burned for the purpose of powering homes and businesses. Solar energy also works to bolster the resilience and reliability of our electric grid, making energy more available during events like storms and natural disasters that occur more and more in a changing climate.
Making the decision to invest in solar technologies illustrates a clear commitment to the issue of climate change, which can enhance your credibility with investors and customers who are searching to engage with environmentally friendly companies. Solar systems can serve as a constant, visible reminder that you are invested in the future of the planet as well as your local community.

Investing in solar energy systems for your business will substantially reduce your monthly electric bill for the next 25+ years, while also reducing your tax burden with depreciation for the next 6 years. When paired with the current incentives, installing a solar energy system can pay for itself in under 5 years, and continue providing reduced overhead for two or three more decades. What would your company be able to accomplish if they didn’t have to pay their utility bill?
