How to make Greener Cities in a Global Warming World?

Home | Blog | How to make Greener Cities in a Global Warming World?

Cities are contributing to climate change more than anywhere else. Cities are also the places that will feel the effects of climate change more than anywhere else.

There’s no doubt that cities are responsible for greenhouse gas emissions, due to the energy that’s required for electricity, heating, and water. This also means that they have the biggest opportunity to reduce emissions and make progress in creating Greener Cities. 

Infrastructure is also the area where city leaders have the most control. Throughout the world, cities are investing in efficiency measures to make building more sustainable. 

By 2050, it is estimated that almost 70% of the world’s population will live in Greener Cities. Making the concept of sustainable communities an efficient and vital resolution to the growing urban population. 

Solar Energy and Batteries are a very efficient way of making Greener Cities in a global warming world! Here are some of the benefits of effective energy solutions. 

Solar Energy

One of the biggest benefits of solar energy is that it results in very few air pollutants. Widespread solar adoption significantly reduces nitrous oxides, sulfur dioxide, and particulate matter emissions, all of which can cause health problems. 

You can improve your health and protect the environment by reducing your reliance on fossil fuels and installing a solar energy system. 

Solar energy creates clean, renewable power from the sun and benefits the environment. Alternatives to fossil fuels reduce carbon footprint. Overall, reducing greenhouse gases around the world. Solar is known to have a favourable impact on the environment. 

By investing in solar energy, you can help reduce the dependence on fossil fuels in favour of one of the most abundant, consistent sources of energy we have available: our sun.

Not only can you save money on your electric bills, but you can also reduce your carbon footprint and improve the health of those around you. Get a quote today at MTG to see how much you can save by going solar.

Battery Storage

Not at your building during the day? Save the energy you generate and use at night. 

If you have solar panels or are looking to install solar panels, you want to get the most out of your energy system. Installing solar battery storage for excess electricity generated by your panels is one great way to improve your electricity generation system’s performance throughout the day. 

At MTG Energy Solutions, we have qualified installers who can fit solar panel battery storage so you can use the electricity another time. Our dedicated team of battery storage experts will provide information and advice to help you choose the right solar battery for you. 

Solar battery storage allows you to store electricity generated from the sun via your solar panels to use in the evening or at a later date. Adding a solar battery system is a great way to use renewable energy to increase your independence from the grid.

Unlike generators, solar panels and battery storage systems don’t create noise pollution that will bother your neighbours. This is a unique benefit and is a great way for anyone who currently has a generator to update their system. 

Solar panels generate the most energy throughout the day when, traditionally, buildings use the least amount of electricity. This means your solar PV system will be producing a lot of surplus energy that would otherwise be wasted. Adding a battery allows you to store this extra electricity to use as and when you want. 

You could choose to use the excess energy stored in your battery to power your building in the evening. Making you even more independent from the grid or you could charge your electric vehicle, increasing the amount of clean energy used by your family.

Adding a battery could mean that the bulk of the electricity used by your building is low-carbon energy generated from the sun. Meaning you’ll import less electricity from the grid, saving you money on your energy bills.

When you install a solar battery, you get to use all the clean solar energy your panels produce. If that solar power isn’t stored in a battery, you’ll end up having to pull energy from the grid, which is usually produced using fossil fuels.

This means your building will be running on dirty energy when you could have been powering it with clean power that you stored. 

If your main reason for installing a solar system is your desire to go green, pairing solar with storage is the best way to ensure that your building maintains a small carbon footprint. 

Here at MTG Energy Solutions, we offer a solar battery as part of a solar system package or you can opt to add a battery at a later stage.
