4-Year-Old Explains Solar Power

August 23, 2011 by Kathleen Maier in Solar Stories with 1 Comment

Sera is a 4-year-old who knows a thing or two about solar power, and she’s spreading the news! The NY toddler, whose dad is a solar contractor with Real Goods Solar (formerly Alteris Renewables) thinks that solar panels are “neat”. And why not?

Solar panels use the power from the sun to provide electricity to all of your home’s appliances and gadgets. And, if you make more electricity than you use, in most states (like New York) you can sell that power back to the utility company. Your roof can become your very own power plant!

Solar power is clean, unlike coal or other fossil fuels, so using a solar electric system will help to preserve the planet for the next generation.

Incentives, rebates and financing options are making going solar easier than ever.

By installing solar panels on your home you can reduce or even eliminate your electric bill, protect your family’s budget against rising utility costs, and help to keep the planet “clean and shiny” for future generations.

If you would like to learn more about what solar power can do for you, call 888.56.SOLAR or go online to schedule your free solar evaluation.

    I loved how Sera explained the benefits of solar! I am going to show this to my five year old who I am also teaching about the value of renewable energy. Great video!

  • Harry Simmelink: I agree, but people need to understand that adding Solar to their home is an asset that will increase the actual value of their property if / when they choose to sell. With the environment the way it is going we are unable to ignore any product that offers free energy at no cost to both the buyer and more significantly the earth!
