Turning to the Sun - Solar Thermal Energy | Photo Essay
At World Honey Market, we are committed to being on the cutting edge of business practices that reduce our corporate carbon footprint. One of the methods we are implementing is solar thermal energy with Artic Solar. Solar thermal energy (STE) is a form of energy and a technology for harnessing solar energy to generate thermal power for industry and residential and commercial sectors. Solar energy creates clean, renewable power from the sun and benefits the environment. As an alternative to fossil fuels, STE reduces carbon footprint at home and abroad, reducing greenhouse gases worldwide. Solar is known to have a favorable impact on the environment as well as health benefits. One of the most significant benefits of solar energy is that it results in very few air pollutants. An analysis by the National Renewable Energy Laboratory (NREL) found that widespread solar adoption would significantly reduce nitrous oxides, sulfur dioxide, and particulate matter emissions, all of which can cause health problems. NREL found that, among other health benefits, solar power results in fewer cases of chronic bronchitis, respiratory, and cardiovascular problems, and lost workdays related to health issues.
