Solar energy is the fastest growing form of energy globally, rapidly scaling to meet increased demand. A driving force behind this trend is increased interest in sustainability and corporate ESG goals. As solar becomes a more common component of ESG goals, corporate buyers are faced with a choice that will have dramatic consequences for the future of their supply chains and the solar sector: Coal-Fired Solar, or Ultra Low-Carbon Solar?
An additional 260 pounds of coal are burned for every solar panel manufactured in a high-carbon supply chain as compared to a solar panel produced by ULCS manufacturers, and corporations are positioned to insist on more sustainable energy than Coal-Fired Solar. Corporate buyers can accelerate their sustainability goals by deploying Ultra Low-Carbon Solar instead of Coal-Fired Solar panels.
