Implementing the solar heating and cooling systems (SHC) road map would create more than 50,000 good-paying American jobs across the US, and there would be an estimated $61 billion in annual energy savings for homeowners, businesses, schools, and governments. This dramatic expansion of SHC systems will permit America to generate approximately 8% of its total heating and cooling needs through clean solar energy, displacing an estimated 226 million tons of carbon emissions annually. That’s the equivalent of mothballing 64 coal plants.
As the world population continues to grow and the limited amount of fossil fuels begin to diminish. Solar heating and cooling systems (SHC) draws from an inexhaustible energy source while displacing fossil fuels and electricity otherwise needed for heating and cooling. This reduces emissions of CO2 and air pollutants while stimulating local job and economic growth.
