But why install solar panels on your home, you may ask? Solar panels are a great way to invest in your home, offset energy costs, reduce the environmental impact of your home, and provide a host of other benefits, such as supporting local businesses and contributing to energy independence.
Check out the list of top celebrities who have gone solar.
Pierce Brosnan: Known as Bond, James Bond. Brosnan is also known as the major champion of solar power in Hollywood. His family has so many solar panels on their Los Angeles area home that sells surplus energy to the grid. In addition to using solar panels on his house, Brosnan has a solar-powered compost heap.
The actor takes other measures to make his home more energy efficient by installing a recycling system on his environmentally- friendly property. Instead of turning off the lights when he leaves a room, Brosnan’s house is wired to turn off the lights whenever a room is vacant for more than 5 minutes - Now that's what you call a James Bond-style.
Tom Brady and Gisele Bundchen: When you add a Super Bowl MVP and a Brazilian hot supermodel, you get a solar power couple. Tom and Gisele love the environment and their kids, so they built their home with eco-friendliness in mind. The couple used green building materials and installed two solar systems, one in the garden and one on the house to be powered by solar.
Given that Bundchen works with the United Nations Environment Programme as an ambassador, she definitely has clean energy as a priority in her home.
Alicia Silverstone: You probably know Silverstone from the famous teen movie “Clueless.” In real life, the actress is a big proponent of all things environmentally friendly. From choosing recycled plastics to eating vegan, Silverstone says she is trying to leave the earth a better place. She uses energy-saving appliances and looks for other ways to cut back on her carbon footprint.
Silverstone is outspoken about her green living and encourages building developers to install solar panels on their buildings to cut down on their use of finite resources.
Julia Roberts: This pretty woman is passionate about making the world a better place for future generations. Roberts gave her home a completed massive renovation with green upgrades. She installed solar panels that cover three roof surfaces. The other green changes on her home include a recycled tile and sustainable building materials. Her home also has its footprint in check.
Edward Norton: Norton continues to use solar power and other green energy in his home. After researching solar for his home, the actor realized he could make a bigger change if he not only retrofitted his home but also helped families to go green and lower their utility bills in the process.
Norton’s program donates a solar panel system to a low-income family for every celebrity that purchases a solar system for their own home. Norton is also the United Nations Goodwill Ambassador for Biodiversity.
Jane Fonda: Fonda is a loud proponent for the potential of solar power. The actress loves eco-friendly practices and built a solar home in the early 1980s. Her most recent home has sustainable materials like cork floors and a solar-heated swimming pool. Her home also had PV panels on the roof.
Brad Pitt: Pitt is one of the celebrities that has participated in the BP Solar Neighbors Program. He also founded the Make it Right Foundation in 2007. Pitt promoted and built environmentally safe projects for people in need.
Leonardo DiCaprio: The famous Titanic star started an environmental foundation that focuses on the earth and its problems. Leo is also an investor and member of the board of advisors for Kingo that provides solar energy for off-grid communities.
Brayan Cranston: Cranston’s home is covered in American clay to keep the humidity down. His home has solar panels on the roof to generate his own energy - what a smart choice.
Lisa Ling: Lisa’s property has a solar panel system that heats water and then supplies it as radiant heat beneath the floors. The same system heats all the family’s water needs, from the shower to the swimming pool. Ling also added additional solar panels on the roof to make her home as self-sustainable as possible.
You don’t have to be a celebrity to go green, save energy, invest in your home, protect your family, impact the environment, increase local jobs, and be energy independent with solar power today.
