Solar provides a more aﬀordable long-term solution for energy needs. In addition to reducing reliance on signiﬁcantly more expensive carbon-based fuels, it greatly beneﬁts the land, air, and water.

While coal and natural gas produce greenhouse gasses, toxic heavy metals, and particulate matter that can make people very sick, solar produces zero byproducts.
