How New York Residents Can Help Fight Climate Change
Earth’s climate is headed toward catastrophe unless we all do our part, according to a new study produced by the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change.
People often discuss what they might have done during pivotal historical events had they been alive to experience them. Far too few ask how their actions today will immediately impact the world for generations to come.
Our micro-actions foster macro-impact. For every person that decides to take public transportation instead of a car, opts for a meat-free meal, or selects a biodegradable product, we trigger a network effect. We create a green economy – one more sustainable for all. Bigger decisions like what car to drive, how to plan your next vacation and green energy solutions to power your home take far more consideration.
One of the most impactful ways a New York homeowner can begin to facilitate change is through solar energy. New York homeowners can leverage taxpayer incentives to take control of their energy production, slash their monthly electric bill, and most importantly take a stand against climate change. The average solar system contributes roughly the same impact that planting 50 trees has on the environment.
When a homeowner takes the first step to learn more about NY-Sun’s on-bill recovery program, they empower their families, neighborhoods, and global community. Even though less than 25 percent of New York homeowners will qualify for the program, receiving a solar education and the obstacles to make the switch are equally important. If you don’t qualify, perhaps a family member or close friend will.
We all want to be on the right side of history. It starts with how we treat each other and our planet – the only one we have.
