It might be a little too late in the year for New Year’s resolutions. Maybe you’ve already fallen off the horse on your plan to exercise more or eat better, but every passing minute is another chance to turn it all around. With the world facing increasingly severe consequences from climate change, any time is the right time to start exploring alternative energy sources that are sustainable and environmentally friendly.
Switching to clean, renewable energy sources like solar power can help you reduce your carbon footprint and protect the environment. Here are some ways you can be more proactive to make this your most environmentally friendly year yet.
Install solar panels
If you’re a homeowner, consider installing solar panels on your roof. With the cost of solar technology continuing to decline, financing that can remove the need for any upfront costs, and a slew of government incentives available, now is a great time to make the switch to solar.
Reduce your energy usage
Simple changes to the way you use energy can make a big difference in reducing your carbon footprint. Consider turning off lights and electronics when they’re not in use, using energy-efficient appliances, and reducing your overall energy consumption.
Support clean energy initiatives
Get involved in local clean energy initiatives and support organizations that are working to reduce the world’s reliance on fossil fuels. Educate your friends and family about the importance of reducing their carbon footprint and the steps they can take to be more environmentally responsible.
You may have already abandoned your new running regimen and are back to late night ice cream binges, but every passing minute truly is a chance to be more proactive about your impact on the environment. By making the switch to solar power, reducing your energy usage, and supporting clean energy initiatives, you can move one step closer to protecting the planet and making this year your greenest one yet.
