Electricity is mostly generated by burning fossil fuels. This process emits a lot of harmful gases such as CO2 into the atmosphere. You must have seen that grayish-black smoke coming out of thermal power plant’s chimneys. The quantity of CO2 emitted is in several million tons. As the requirement of electricity per capita continues to increase, we need to generate more and more electricity. This causes more CO2 to be emitted than ever before. This causes global warming and hence, climate change. This can be eliminated by using clean energy such as solar energy. We have created a “CO2 Saving Calculator”, below on this page, to calculate the amount of CO2 saved using solar energy to generate same amount of electricity.
Causes of Climate Change
The smoke or CO2 coming out of these conventional power generating stations cause pollution leading to various health issues, especially, lung and heart problems. It is now said that, children in various global cities like New Delhi and Beijing have lungs of a chain smoker even though they have never smoked before. Polar ice is melting causing sea levels to rise around the world creating risk for various islands and regions to be submerged under water permanently in a few years time. Everybody is being affected by this climate change.
Tackling Climate Change
We can save all this CO2 emission using a solar plant. Solar plant generates electricity without burning anything and so doesn’t emit any CO2. That is why, it is also called clean energy. This is also a renewable energy, so we don’t have risk of it being depleted in years to come. In order to calculate, how much CO2 can be saved, we have created a CO2 Saving Calculator. This calculator tells you, up to how much CO2 can be saved using solar system of particular capacity.
Nations all over the world are promoting solar energy in order to become energy surplus and to reduce pollution. Government provides various incentives and subsidies to promote this.
CO2 Saving Calculator
In order to calculate, how much CO2 can be saved, we have created a CO2 Saving Calculator. This calculator tells you, up to how much CO2 can be saved using solar system of particular capacity.
How to use CO2 Saving Calculator
- Enter the size of solar plant (in kW)
- The calculator will show you the result in real-time. It will show you the amount of carbon dioxide (CO2), both in kilogram (kg) and tons, you can save up to in a year using a solar system of size entered
