Just because we have to stay six feet away from each other in this time of social distancing and “flattening the curve” doesn’t mean we can’t enjoy the beauty and warmth of the Florida sun! 

We at ProSolar have a special love for the Florida sun because it drives everything we do. We’re all limited in what we can do socially until stay-at-home orders are lifted, but even in the midst of these uncertain times, we’ve compiled a few ways we can all enjoy the sun even while social distancing. 

Spend time outside 

Most stay-at-home orders still allow for us to spend time outside and in our yards, as long as we’re maintaining social distancing guidelines (staying at least 6 feet from others and in some cases, wearing a mask). This means we have plenty of opportunity to go for walks, go for a run, or go for a bike ride. Depending on the status of parks in your area, you may even be able to go for a hike. 

Let the sunshine in 

Even while you’re working from home or taking care of family members at home, there are ways to enjoy fresh air and sunlight. Keep your blinds open during the day to let in as much natural light as possible. If the temperatures are cool enough, keep a window cracked or use a screen door to let fresh air into your home. Little things like this can add a breath of fresh air (literally!) to your home, which helps since the places we can go are so limited right now.

Plant a garden 

If you have the space, planting a garden in your backyard is a great way to enjoy the sun and utilize its power to grow fruits, vegetables, and flowers to enjoy all summer long. Even if you have just a windowsill with some indirect sunlight, you can still find a few types of plants that can bring life and purified air to your living space, like ferns and other low-light tolerant plants. 

Make the sunlight even more enjoyable with solar energy 

Switching to solar energy from traditional grid-based energy is another way to make Florida sunlight even more enjoyable — and cost-effective! The sun not only makes for an enjoyable bike ride or a backyard full of flowers, but it also can help you save big on energy costs every single month. 

Installing a solar energy system for your home or commercial property can help you save up to 100% on energy expenditures every single month — giving you more flexibility in your budget and the opportunity to improve your bottom line. You can also expect to elevate your property value by up to 15%! Solar energy is an investment proven to have a high rate of return, as most systems pay for themselves within 6 to 8 years, as well. 

What next? 

Though the future of our social lives is uncertain, the future of solar energy is not. You can count on solar energy to save you money, positively impact the planet, and transform your home ownership with energy independence.
