Solar energy not only lowers your electrical bill, it also helps reduce greenhouse gas emissions! - In 2015, the total emissions in the City of Miami Beach were 1,247,211 MT CO2e (metric tons of carbon dioxide equivalents). That is equivalent to the amount of carbon dioxide that can be absorbed by 90% of the Everglades in one year! The commercial sector accounted for 50% of the community wide emissions. Residential energy use accounted for 25% of the emissions. The rest of emissions were produced by transportation, landfill solid waste, and the treatment of wastewater. By making your home or business solar efficient, you can also help reduce this number while also saving money on your electricity bills. Miami Beach has several incentives in place to make going solar easier than ever!
