If you are fond of reading and studying articles about renewable energy and the advantages of solar power, you might come across the terms carbon footprint and emissions. What exactly are they and why are they always affiliated with these topics?
Give and take
There is no such thing as a free lunch. When we breathe, we take up oxygen and release carbon dioxide in the air. It’s always a give and take policy under the universal law. This simple analogy reinstates the fact that there are consequences to all actions, in the same logic that all our actions have effects on our environment. There are gases released whenever we carry on with our daily human activities such as watching television, doing laundry, cooking our meals, etc. Carbon dioxide is released to the atmosphere and this leaves a carbon footprint, usually measured as CO2.
It might be complicated to calculate your exact carbon footprint since there are a lot of factors to weigh in. However, there are online calculators available to give you a rough estimate. In fact, some solar monitoring systems even offer this to give you a good perspective on how your solar power contributes to reducing your carbon footprint.
Reducing your carbon footprint
There are many ways to reduce your carbon footprint, even in small ways. Think of ways of transportation using more natural means – such as using a bicycle or walking to go to work. You can also switch to more energy-efficient appliances, and this can greatly offset your carbon dioxide emissions. Planting trees, using eco-friendlier packaging, eating more plant-based food and investing in renewable energy sources can make a huge difference in the long run too since plastics, meats and burning of fossil fuels to produce energy are among of the greatest factors in generating a huge carbon footprint.
