As a high school biology teacher, I educate my students about the ecological impacts humans have on our planet. Scientific evidence demonstrates that the current anthropogenic climate change has never been seen in the geological record. In order to prevent further decline of our biosphere, we all need to make changes in our lives. As part of my personal commitment to making a change, my family invested in solar panels. Based on reports from our energy company, our previous electric supply relied on almost 50% fossil fuels. Solar panels offer a point-source, alternative, green supply of electricity. I am happy to report that on a monthly basis we are not only meeting our electrical demands with solar generation, but we are actually exporting energy to the electric grid.
