The need for energy conservation has reached a tipping point. The demand the energy grids has peaked at the same time as we have reached the point of no return in regards to our destruction of the environment. Every day, little steps are being made to conserve more and are adding up to long term change. Steps like:
-Recycling which has become the norm or slowly
-Switching cities over to renewable resource power
-Setting green standards for new building and old
Municipalities are among some of the behemoths coming on board for a variety of reasons.
Increased Temperature Extremes
As the global warming takes its toll on the weather, we are seeing hotter hots and colder colds all over the country. Window tinting knows no season and is efficient for every type of weather. It keeps the hot air in during the winter and out during the summer. This means less reliance on HVAC systems for temperature regulation and all around diminished use of electricity. A simple and effective way for municipalities to diminish their footprint.
Brownouts occur when demand on a certain power grid is too high for the system to supply energy. The best way to avoid a brown out situation is for residential and commercial structures to use less power. Since window tinting conserves energy, this low-cost addition to city and government buildings helps put less stress on the power grid without sacrificing comfort.
Increased Harmful UV Rays
As the ozone becomes more and more depleted, we are seeing increases in cancers and other damage done by excess UV rays. Putting window tinting on government buildings increases the penetration of natural light while blocking 99.9% of the sun’s harmful rays–protecting government employees from harm. The Skin Cancer Foundation even recommends window tint as part of a comprehensive sun protection program.
