Back to the Basics
The topic of climate change has been front and center in recent weeks. With regards to the headlines, we're going back to the basics to remind our followers about one of our core founding principles - reduce greenhouse gas emissions.
Greenhouse gases (GHGs), when introduced into the atmosphere, trap heat energy that would otherwise be headed out to space. This is called the greenhouse effect and it is responsible for the warming climate.
Carbon dioxide (CO2) is the most well-known GHG, but there are others that are responsible for warming the planet as well. When doing GHG accounting everything is done relative to CO2 concentrations in the atmosphere and this is where Silicon Valley Clean Energy's carbon free electricity makes a big difference in reducing your carbon footprint.
