It’s been a strange couple of years. I never thought my journey would lead to this place in my life, and I’m fully cognizant of everything around me and deeply appreciative that I survived the whole process. I feel so lucky to be alive, but I also can’t help but think about the future of my children and speculate about the kind of world they will be living in when I’m old. You could say that global warming has been on my mind lately, and I’m looking for ways to reduce my carbon footprint and my impact on the environment as a whole.
I did a little bit of research online over the last few months before deciding to look into more practical information about green energy on a residential basis. I don’t live in a part of the world that is zoned for technology like wind turbines, nor would my neighbours be appreciative of a loud wind turbine over their homes. Solar power, however, is entirely feasible and a lot of people in Queensland seem to be taking an interest not only in reducing their negative impact on the environment, but also saving money in the long term, which you really can do when you switch over to solar.
I spoke to Jim from CFP Industries, a provider of Solar Power Mackay, and he told me a little bit more about the different options available for residents in the state: “If you want to save money in the long run, this is probably one of the best ways to reduce the amount of money you spend per year on electricity,” He was very helpful, “It’s not expensive to get it installed when you think about how much money you will save on a yearly basis from embracing this technology.”
It explains why millions of people in Australia and other countries across the planet are starting to look into green living. I’m not about ready to start my own garden and become fully self-sufficient, but I definitely can venture to say that I’m ready to embrace alternative forms of energy, especially if it saves me money, too. I did a little more research on prices and it isn’t going to cost as much as I first assumed, so I’ll definitely be making the jump into getting my own panels installed at my property within the year, probably just before summer.
Surviving a very rare and dangerous form of cancer gives you a new lease on life, and it really changes your perspective. If I can do just a little bit to make the environment cleaner, and it will result in a slightly better world for the children of the future, I’m fully committed. If you’re looking for more information on ways to reduce your power bill and you’d like to learn more about getting panels installed at your property, I highly recommend speaking to local companies and seeing how much it’ll cost you, how much you’ll save, and so on.
