Reducing Carbon Footprint With Sunrise Solar
Sunrise Solar Corp. (OTCBB:SSLR) today introduces new carbon offset strategies for investors. With 40% of carbon dioxide emissions coming from electricity generation, solar energy solutions deliver a very high carbon offset to solar energy investors. The need to reduce carbon dioxide emissions has become so severe that in some states, such as Hawaii, legislatures have begun to mandate solar installations in new home construction. State Senate Bill 644 would require the incorporation of solar hot water systems in almost all new residential construction in Hawaii by the end of 2010.
Each person creates a "carbon footprint" consisting of the amount of carbon dioxide produced by the generation of their total energy consumption. Solar panels, solar lighting and solar hot water solutions by Sunrise Solar can deliver a substantial reduction in the carbon footprint of the average American. Clean energy sources for electricity, such as solar and wind, could reduce carbon emissions substantially if adopted, whether voluntarily, or through government mandates such as those in Hawaii.
"We expect to see the demand for solar solutions to continue increasing at a rapid pace in light of the strong positive benefits from these technologies," said Mr. Eddie Austin, Chairman and CEO of Sunrise Solar Corp. "If the average American does their part we can begin to address America's energy needs in significant ways without government mandates."
Over the past several years energy industry stalwarts, such as BP (NYSE:BP), Chevron (NYSE:CVX), Royal Dutch Shell (NYSE:RDS-A), and Duke Energy (NYSE:DUK), have made significant investments into programs and technologies intended to lower the carbon footprint from their energy production activities.
