More and more homeowners throughout the US and the rest of the world are choosing to “go solar” than ever before. Solar is one of the cleanest renewable energy sources available. Many people overlook the fact that our sun is essentially a naturally occurring nuclear reactor, releasing tiny energy packets referred to as “photons” that travel 93 million miles from the sun to the earth in a shocking eight-and-a-half minutes. Enough of these photons hit the planet each hour to theoretically power the globe for a solid year, which explains why so many people are choosing to go solar. EDGE Energy is a proud dealer of SunPower solar projects, and we’ll help you move further in the direction of energy independence than ever before.
