Dear Eartha, I’ve caught wind that April is Earth Month. I’m familiar with Earth Day, but what exactly goes down during Earth Month?

Earth Month is a celebration and dedication to our planet that extends beyond just Earth Day. We all know that Mother Earth deserves more than one day of celebration! Throughout the month, various events, initiatives, and activities are organized worldwide to raise awareness about environmental issues, promote sustainability, and encourage actions to protect the Earth. It’s like a whole month-long party where people come together to show some love to our planet. Wondering how to celebrate Earth Month locally? Start by making eco-friendly changes at home, such as adding solar panels or learning how to save water and energy. Or consider attending one of the High Country Conservation Center events that offer valuable insights to kickstart your environmental journey.

Let the Sun Shine In

Ready to unleash the power of the sun this Earth Month? Solarize Summit invites local residents and businesses to harness the sun’s energy with limited-time incentives on solar panel installation for your home or office. With up to $3,000 in rebates and a generous federal tax credit, put the sun to work for you this year.

But how exactly do solar panels work?? They capture sunlight and turn it into electricity. This electricity can power your home directly or be stored for later use, providing clean energy for your needs. Say goodbye to fossil fuels! By investing in solar power, individuals contribute to a cleaner, more sustainable future for the planet. Let the sun shine in!

Say Goodbye to Wasted Watts

Now that you’re harnessing clean energy with solar panels, it’s crucial not to waste it! By cutting down on energy consumption, you can significantly reduce greenhouse gas emissions and conserve natural resources. Energy-efficient homes play a vital role in mitigating climate change by lowering overall energy demand.

Reach out to the experts at High Country Conservation Center (HC3) to uncover energy-wasting culprits in your home. From detecting sneaky air leaks to identifying outdated appliances, HC3’s Home Energy Audits will help you save both energy and money. Bid farewell to wasted watts and welcome lower utility bills.
