Last year marked the fastest growth rate to renewable power capacity around the globe.
Along with the record growth, the cost of adding new capacity for green technology fell to a record low, according to a United Nations’ environmental report.
Here at home, Aztec Solar continues to equip homes and businesses with solar applications, such as solar panels, solar pool heating and solar battery storage.
For more than four decades, we’ve worked hard to meet the energy needs of our clients with affordable, clean and Earth-saving technologies.
In 2019, about 184 gigawatts of new renewable power capacity was added to the world’s energy arsenal, according to the report. This remarkable growth occurred despite modest investment increases in the green technology sector, indicating that solar power is as affordable and accessible as it’s ever been.
Better technology, growing economies of scale and competition are some of the reasons why solar energy and other green energy continues this high trajectory.
For perspective on cost, consider that in the second half of 2019, the generation of solar electricity was 83 percent less expensive than a decade ago. Imagine the return on investment solar products, such as solar storage and batteries, will provide in the coming years? It’s exciting to think about.
There’s still a lot of work to do. Globally, about 13.5 percent of electricity is generated from renewable sources. That’s up from 12.4 percent in 2019 and just 5.9 percent in 2009, according to the United Nations.
To meet the goals outlined in the 2015 Paris climate agreement aimed at keeping average global temperatures from increasing more than 2°C, some 3,000 gigawatts of new renewable energy capacity will be needed within a decade.
You can do your part, too. Be the solution to a brighter future and stronger planet through a variety of solar applications that save you money on your utility bill and lay the groundwork for a sustainable future for all.
