As a business owner, what are you accountable for? The environment.
Many businesses are dependent on electricity. Yours is no exception. Electricity generated by oil and coal adds up to the greenhouse gas in the environment causing climate change. In the past few years, there have been observable effects of climate change in the environment: loss of sea ice, accelerated sea level rise and longer, more intense heat waves.
Here are some steps in becoming a responsible business owner:
Step 1: Think Ahead
If you want to be a responsible business owner, you have to be a smart business owner first. With the rise of climate change, businesses are in danger. The demand for energy will grow as power generation becomes less reliable and energy cost will increase.
Step 2: Think Green
Use of Fossil fuels, such as coal, oil and gasoline, add a lot of carbon dioxide into the atmosphere
which can worsen global warming. Not only are you responsible for your business itself but also to the
environment that provides for you.
Step 1 and 2 brings you to the question
Step 3: Go Solar
With Solar power, there are no emissions, no need to extract resources from the earth nor pollution. It draws power from the sun’s rays and stores energy effectively for usage. Blackouts will no longer be a problem because your panels are still operating and it also serves as protection from increase in electricity costs.
The world of business is very competitive and exploring solar power is one way to keep up.
