A Lot Has Changed Since That First Feast
Learn About Solar Energy Through Our Present Day Thanksgiving Traditions
In 1621, the Pilgrims organized a celebratory feast to thank the Native Americans for teaching them the lay of the land and helping them survive the frigid winter. This occasion is what we now call America’s “first Thanksgiving.” Since then, our society has adapted and evolved. And the way we celebrate Thanksgiving has evolved, too.
Though this holiday is still centered on indulging in good food and being surrounded by great company, we’ve veered from some of the settlers’ original traditions. Instead, we established new ones that better fit our lives—and our stomachs. Well, at Mauzy Heating, Air & Solar, we continuously look for new ways to evolve and change, too. That’s why we broke electricity traditions to offer solar energy in San Diego, CA. This innovative way to power your home better fits your life—and your budget.
From the dinner table to the energy industry, all of our society’s evolutions go hand-in-hand. In fact, some of our revolutionized Turkey Day traditions give you a better understanding of solar energy. Here’s how.
We Feast for Fewer Days
The first Thanksgiving was three days long. But nowadays, our lives are too hectic to dedicate that much time to celebrating one holiday. So, instead, we feast for one day. Yet, that doesn’t stop us from eating enough food to make up for the two days we’re missing out on. Unfortunately, this overindulgence leaves us so stuffed that it drains us of our energy.
For solar panels, every day is Thanksgiving. Day in and day out, they lay around indulging in the sun’s rays. However, unlike us, the more they consume, the more their energy heightens.
We Hit the Road
As with the settlers, we fill the seats at our tables with great company. However, now, our friends and family aren’t just a skip and a hop away. It’s common for them to be miles or hours away. So, whether it’s down the street or a couple of states away, traveling is one of our society’s biggest Turkey Day traditions.
Word of solar energy’s benefits is spreading. More and more homeowners are beginning to see how this power source can help them save money on their energy bills, free them from relying solely on the gridded electricity system and more. So, like Thanksgiving Day guests, popularity of this booming industry is traveling miles, too.
We Set Our Dinner Free
Back in the day, the settlers hunted live turkeys for dinner. Now, we sometimes set wild turkeys free. You see, each year, the President of the United States receives a live turkey as a gift. Then, he pardons the bird so it can live out the rest of its life on a farm.
Likewise, when you switch to solar in San Diego, CA, you absolve your reliance on the gridded electricity system. This, in turn, frees you from high energy bills, gives you the energy independence you and your budget need and eradicates your reliance on nonrenewable fossil fuels.
We Buy Our Ingredients
At the first feast, everything the settlers ate was grown and harvested by hand. But since then, our society has drastically evolved. Between grocery stores, doctors’ offices and other technological advancements, we no longer rely solely on the environment to survive. Instead of harvesting our Thanksgiving dinner directly from the earth’s soil, we gather it from the store’s aisles.
Unfortunately, this evolution made us lose touch with the beneficial aspects of nature. However, solar energy brings us back to our roots. It forgoes our man-made electricity to use a natural element, the sun, to power our homes. Essentially, solar power takes us back while also pushing us forward.
