Growing crops uses a ton of water (it takes more than 5 gallons of water to grow a single head of broccoli), so good thing Nick Chettle installed solar. In total, they have saved 430 gallons of water, enough to grow 80 heads of broccoli.
Nick Chettle's solar installation has produced the same amount of energy as burning 902 pounds of coal. The type of electricity powering your home varies by your location, but suffice it to say that the more clean energy that is on the grid, the less we will need to rely on fossil-based fuels.
As a population, we need clean water to drink and to produce our food. Growing a single head of lettuce requires 3.5 gallons of clean water. Good thing Nick Chettle installed solar, helping save more than 295 gallons of water...enough for 87 heads of lettuce.
Nick Chettle just added a solar installation to WattStory. We will begin tracking how much electricity is being produced and translate this vanilla technical data into compelling, beautiful stories designed to be shared online.
