People in California spend a huge amount of money on their electric bills each year. Electricity has become something that most people depend on for everyday life. When electricity is produced by burning coal, it adds carbon to the environment, which causes global warming. When electricity is produced from solar panels, it doesn’t add carbon to the atmosphere. Solar panels are panels that collect the sun’s energy. The energy is used by the dwelling and any excess energy is sold back to the utility companies. Even though solar panels are expensive in the beginning, if more people used solar panels they would save an enormous amount of money and decrease the amount of carbon pumped into our environment. Going solar would cut our energy bills in half and it would reduce global warming. RYMAN CRONE, student, Auburn
