As the chart above indicates, the larger the solar system, the greater the number of pounds of pollutants that are saved from entering the environment. Please note that the numbers are not exactly proportional because the examples are taken from different locations throughout the United States.

Even though the Commercial systems show larger numbers in the graph above, there are many more potential Residential locations than Commercial. How many pollutants would be saved if your block or neighborhood were using renewable energy?

Additional chart detail is listed below:
