  • It is impossible to deny we are rapidly depleting the world's conventional energy supplies. In addition, the use of conventional energy results in billions of dollars in pollution costs each year. Household and commercial requirements account for about one-third of United States energy use and over one half of electricity demand. Over 70 per cent of the energy consumed in these sectors is for heating, cooling, and water heating. All three of these usages can be provided by existing solar technology. Implementation of that technology in North Carolina would result in a monetary savings to the individual homeowner and environmental savings to the public.
