Posted March 06, 2019 18:18:37 It’s not exactly the hottest city in the nation, but Chattanooga is making strides in cutting carbon emissions.
It is the home of the nation’s first solar energy plant and has one of the lowest greenhouse gas emissions per capita of any city in America.
That’s good news for the environment.
The city has also installed more solar panels than any other in the United States, which has helped reduce its overall emissions.
But, that hasn’t stopped some residents from questioning how it will be able to power itself with clean energy.
The city says it is considering installing solar panels on the roof of its solar farm.
But some residents worry that installing solar power is a waste of money and energy.
The solar panels could cost hundreds of thousands of dollars.
“We’ve got an energy grid that’s very important to us,” said Susan Lee, who lives in the neighborhood of Northside.
“So if we’re going to be able and willing to invest in that, then why are we spending so much money on the cost of solar?”
A few other cities in Tennessee are already doing the same.
Tennessee’s solar panel program was started in 2011, and its current cost per kilowatt hour is about $2.50 per watt, compared to about $4 per watt in Arizona.
The state also has one solar energy program that provides rebates for homeowners who choose to buy their own solar panels, and the city’s is also offering solar rebate incentives for homebuyers.
According to the Tennessee Energy Information Service, the average residential solar panel costs about $400.
Chattanooga is one of only two cities in the country that offers solar rebate rebates, and a rebate for solar panels can be a great deal.
In fact, the city has the lowest rebate in the state for a home-use solar system, according to the U.S. Energy Information Administration.
The rebate is based on the amount of energy a homeowner uses in the year they install the system.
As for the cost, Lee said the city is currently on track to recoup that investment by 2019, if it chooses to do so.
Other cities in North Carolina have also started using solar panels.
North Carolina is one the states that doesn’t have a statewide system of solar power programs, and most of its energy comes from wind and solar, which are much cheaper.
But solar is gaining momentum in the Carolinas.
In 2016, the U,S.
Department of Energy estimated that there are about 600 solar panels installed in the U., and the number is expected to grow as more people become solar powered.
If Chattanooga and other states want to reap the benefits of solar energy, they’ll need to get serious about cutting their carbon footprint.
