As per a latest survey conducted by TD Canada Trust, despite a significant number of households aware of the healthy use of green energy, still only few of them are adopting the same.
The survey brought out that nine in ten Canadian homeowners are aware about the benefits of green energy in making the environment health friendly, but only 5% of them are employing rooftop solar panels for generating electricity.
The major concern for not adopting solar panels is cost associated with them, which 76% of them responded in the survey; while 33% of them had installed solar panels.
Karen Clarke-Whistler, Chief Environment Officer said, "Canadians have shown that those concerns can be overcome. We believe the future for rooftop solar panels is just as bright ".
In the survey, it was discovered that 47% of Canadian homeowners are acquainted with the fact that the use of solar energy decreases home energy costs, while less than 5% were aware that the use of solar panels can be a major source of revenues in some states.
For spreading the awareness regarding the use of solar energy among Canadians, TD is providing Going Green: A homeowner's guide to solar energy.
The use of solar panels would also reduce the burden on electricity plants and the revenues can be generated by selling solar-produced power to local electricity providers.
Florida's three schools including N.E. Roberts Elementary in Lakeland, Palmetto Elementary in Poinciana and Haines City High School will be getting solar-powered electrical systems through a state program.
