In the United States, a solar system that produces 1,000 kilowatt-hours of power would prevent the emission of 5 pounds of nitrogen oxides, nearly 8 pounds of sulfur dioxide and more than 1,400 pounds of carbon dioxide per month. (Based on the average U.S. household's monthly use of 830 kilowatt-hours of electricity.)
