Future is Bright for Solar-Powered Homes

April 21, 2015 1:45 am

The future looks bright for American households.

According to a recent survey commissioned by solar service provider Sungevity, 81 percent of parents plan to live in a solar-powered home. The majority of those surveyed would also like solar to be the world’s primary energy source when their children grow up.

Savings topped the list of reasons why parents would power their homes with solar energy. Solar energy can substantially cut, or even eliminate, monthly utility bills. When it comes to environmentally friendly activities at home, however, nearly half believe it would be more difficult for their family to go an “energy diet” than a food diet.

In an interesting twist, more than a third of survey respondents would like to see the Las Vegas strip, known for its excessive use of electricity, powered by the sun.
