Top 5 Reasons to Use Renewable Energy
By now, everyone has heard of renewable energy, but are you are aware of just how much of a positive impact it can have on your home, bills and, most importantly, our planet?
Renewable energy is the key focal point to the myenergi mission of creating a more sustainable future. We currently provide tens of thousands of homes and businesses with renewable green energy products, but there are still plenty of people yet to make the switch.
Here are our top reasons why now is the perfect time to start using renewable energy…
1) Better for the environment
Fossil fuels are overloading the air with greenhouse gases, which are having an alarmingly damaging effect on our planet.
Sea levels are rising, ice caps are melting and temperatures are soaring. The climate crisis is real, and we need to do all we can to cut down the effects of global warming.
Enter, renewable energy: a cleaner, more sustainable and recyclable means of powering our homes.
Saving the planet feels good, we know as it’s part of our Green Team’s key mission! Is it time you joined us in embracing more natural means to power your home?
2) Better for our health
“Every year in the UK, it’s estimated that the equivalent of 40,000 early deaths can be linked to breathing in polluted air,” according to British Lung Foundation.
Meanwhile, it is also reported that 248 hospitals are in areas where “air pollution is above the World Health Organisation’s limit”.
Not only are fossil fuels and global warming damaging our wildlife and environment, they are also having a seriously detrimental effect on our health.
Renewable energy sources such as wind power, solar panels and hydroelectric energy, on the other hand, are much more natural, and therefore ensure cleaner air.
3) Energy in abundance
It is widely reported that the amount of energy we can pull from coal is finite, while nuclear energy is detrimental to the state of our planet.
Renewable energy is a whole different story, though.
As the name suggests, renewable energy produces a vast supply of power, with the Earth’s resources able to consistently top up the tank.
In fact, solar, wind, biomass and hydroelectric power is already generating half of Germany’s output, while Costa Rica recently went 300 days on renewable energy.
4) Cheaper to run
While the initial installation of renewable energy sources can be significant, the truth of the matter is that, in the long run, it will save you money.
It’s important to see the likes of wind turbines and solar panels as an investment.
The moment you start consuming your own energy – which is effectively endless and recyclable – you will soon see more disposable income in your bank account at the end of each month.
5) More control over your own energy
Fed up of paying for power from the grid? Why not self-consume your own supply and gain control of your electricity?
Our green products, in particular our eddi energy diverter, enable you to reduce your reliance on the national grid and instead focus on maximising the energy generated from your wind turbines and/or solar panels.
