Energy-efficiency, going green, renewable energy…the list goes on and on when it comes to protecting the planet! In celebration of Earth Day, we thought we would spotlight renewable energy options highlighted in a Jackson EMC Ty Talk video featuring TV Host and Home Energy Expert Ty Pennington.
“Having an energy-efficient lifestyle helps ensure that we keep more resources on our planet longer,” Ty explains in the Renewable Energy Ty Talk. “When it comes to using renewable energy in homes, the most common approach is the use of solar.”
Ty continues, explaining how the personal investment for many homeowners just does not produce enough energy savings to warrant the cost of solar panels, but thanks to Jackson EMC, there is a way to start leveraging renewable energy at home today without the expense of doing it yourself!
When it comes to green energy, Jackson EMC is a leader in the state of Georgia. The utility company is generating power for homes it services with renewable energy right now within a solar panel field in Barrow County. From water and biomass to landfill gas and solar itself, by the time Jackson EMC has its three solar projects fully operational, it will be supplying nearly 17 million kilowatts of solar energy, enough to power nearly 1,100 homes.
Joining Jackson EMC in its green efforts not only makes an impact on your home’s energy but also on the environment! Experts predict that 95 percent of energy being used will be from renewable energy by the year 2050, and Jackson EMC is leading the pack!
