How Artificial Turf Conserves Energy
Pumping, filtering and heating water all use energy. Reducing excessive water in your yard is a great way to reduce your carbon emissions.
Additionally, polluted runoff water from natural grass creates a whole new problem: water treatment. One study found that water treatment uses 30 billion kilowatt hours of electricity per year; that’s almost one percent of the total electricity used in the United States!
While artificial grass requires light watering to get rid of debris, it pales in comparison to the eye-opening amount of water needed to maintain natural grass – this is especially helpful in areas experiencing heavy drought and rigid water use restrictions. Thanks to its fantastic drainage capabilities, runoff water goes through the turf’s surface and into the ground, eliminating the demand for water treatment.
