With more and more people gaining conscience about helping the environment, there are different practices they are taking to go green that will also save them a few bucks every month. Let’s take a look at some ways to live a more environment-friendly lifestyle and cut costs:
- Switch to renewable energy: Look for green energy providers in your city, as renewables are now the cheapest form of electricity in many countries. Solar and wind energies are some of the most popular options that are now cheaper than power from new fossil fuels.
- Drive an electric car: Even though electric cars are not 100% emissions-free, as lithium-based and take more energy to manufacture than gas-powered cars, they do produce fewer polluting emissions over their lifetimes than gas-powered cars. Furthermore, a gasoline car can cost you $1,000 to $2,500 a year to fill up while it costs only $300 to $400 per year to charge an electric vehicle.
- Grow your own food: A home garden could be a good way to eat healthy and engage in a new hobby while saving costs at the supermarket and reducing your carbon footprint in your dinner.
- Switch to solar: Installing solar panels and other renewable energy resources requires a considerable upfront investment, but it will save you money in the long run thanks to a range of incentives from federal, state and local governments in some countries.
With groundwater supplies being over pumped in many places in the US, along with seasonal dryness, wildfires and shrinking water supplies, millions of people are experiencing the impact of climate change themselves. As a result, engineers have found a solution to both protect water supplies and boost renewable energy to protect the climate: the solar-canal solution.
By covering the more than 4,000 miles of canals in California with solar panels, evaporation of water is prevented while also meeting the state's renewable energy goals and saving funds. Because of California’s prone to drought and with climate change bringing hotter, drier weather, these canals are an efficient way to save more than 65 billion gallons of water annually.
Additionally, by covering California's canals with solar panels, the state would also generate around 13 gigawatts of renewable energy capacity - a number that works in favor of its clean energy goals of 60% from carbon-free sources by 2030 and 100% renewable by 2045.
Furthermore, by building these long, thin solar arrays, more than 80,000 acres of farmland or natural habitat can be saved from being used just for solar farms. As solar canals generate clean energy, the levels of air quality will also be improved around the fabulous Golden State.
