Thinking about going green? Or maybe you’ve heard the term, but haven’t looked into it or read up on the topic? The good news is that going green is easier than you think and green energy is here to stay!
You don’t have to quit your job to go save a rainforest, join Greenpeace to save the whales or sell all your belongings to go off the grid and live off the land. You are of course, more than welcome to do those things, but there are easier ways to be environmentally friendly and reap some benefits whilst you are at it.
Whether you implement green energy into your home or your business, it is advantageous to all facets of your life: your health, your well-being, your family and your surroundings, your business, your employees, your livelihood, and your bank account (utility bill reduction).
Green Energy – Environmental preservation that benefits you
1. Electricity Savings
The price of energy has been rising steadily over the years as fossil fuels become scarcer and more expensive. The consumption of energy at business premises is so substantial in volume that the impact of rising energy costs makes utility bills almost unaffordable.
Without incorporating products for green energy production into your business, your utility bill will continue to cut into your profits, making going green the golden opportunity to manage increasing utility costs.
2. Health benefits
It can be as simple as making tiny adjustments or healthier choices during your daily doings.
By driving less, for example, and incorporating outdoor activities into your daily routine with walks around the neighbourhood or biking or jogging instead of driving when you have errands to run nearby, you are even becoming an ambassador!
This way, when opting to ‘take to your toes’ as opposed to driving, you are helping to reduce vehicle emissions while also getting fresh air and exercise!
3. Improved air quality
- Reduced air pollution
- Reduced greenhouse gas emissions
- Reduced sulphur dioxide
- Reduced nitrogen oxide
- Reduced mercury
- Reduced particulate matter
- Reduced carbon monoxide
- Reduced lead
4. Reduced Water Waste
Become conscious of water waste in your home and business.
By turning off the faucet while brushing your teeth and taking shorter showers you are reducing the amount of water wasted in your home every day.
Smart water metres allow you to regularly monitor the water usage and immediately be able to identify a pipe leak or other problem in your water system
Industrial waste as well as household waste add a significant amount of pollution and toxic materials to the environment.
5. Innovation and Development
A growing number of industries are taking advantage of green energy to create new products and services, which will help us transition toward a more sustainable world.
If you think about green energy, the wind turbine comes to mind. Developed in the 1950’s, wind turbines are used across the world to produce clean electricity every day, making them one of the fastest-growing sources in history.
With this influx of innovations into our lives comes the hope that we’ll be able to save money while protecting our environment at the same time!
6. Energy independence
Energy independence may seem daunting at first, especially if your motivation for going green leans towards the cost-saving and long-term benefits that renewable energy alternatives offer to become self-reliant and produce renewable energy. After all, products and equipment require input and when trying to save money karma it is daunting to have to spend your money first.
Going off the grid requires research, adjustment, and resources to establish your home or business energy needs, and the products or equipment you could incorporate to ultimately produce your energy.
By being the boss of the energy production for your specified electricity consumption, you can reduce the amount of money spent on electricity bills every month.
7. Rising resilience
Stand strong in the face of challenges and keep your business doors open and your operations up and running, irrespective of power outages.
8. Avoid extreme weather conditions
The weather has been changing dramatically over recent years. The polluted air and damage to the ozone layer allow the temperature of the earth to rise. In turn, the oceans are warmer and the rate of evaporation of water is more rapid.
Increased erratic rainfall causes flooding and damages on an unfathomable scale.
There is a saying that you can’t control the weather, but we have driven conditions conducive to unprecedented and unpredictable weather. So, let’s go green or, we might not have a home to go to!
Protecting the environment sounds like a task for superheroes and saving the world all on your own is a tall order.
Let’s make a change and nurture the environment by getting into the green scene.
