Solar energy is an efficient renewable energy source

Energy Efficiency and Renewable Energy Projects Funding & Resources

Renewable energy is the energy collected from naturally replenished sources. Energy sources are generally considered renewable if they regenerate within the human timescale. Currently, the primary sources of renewable energy are sunlight, biomass, wind, water, and geothermal heat. These sources generate energy through a system. For example, sunlight is converted to electricity through a solar panel system.

Interested in renewable energy but not interested in installing onsite solar, then try community solar or choose an energy services company that offers renewable electricity.
