In March 2017, wind and solar accounted for 10% of all US electricity generation for the first time ever. Although this may not sound high compared to other countries with much stronger clean energy programs such as China (who reached 21%) or Germany (34%), it reflected a...
Renewable energy sources are often the most environmentally-friendly choice for powering our world because they don't rely on finite resources. Renewables refer to any form of power that can be collected from nature. And this is the common characteristic among all natural energy resources,...
The solar-powered atmospheric water generator is a device which has the ability to create clean, safe drinking water. The process of creating this life changing resource begins with sunlight and carbon dioxide being captured from natural sources such as exhaling or photoelectrolysis (lightening). It's...
Renewable energy is a cheap, clean way to power our homes and economies. It comes from natural processes that never stop being replenished with new renewable sources like sunlight or wind. Renewables have powered boats on oceans as well as mills grinding grain for centuries - but...
Renewable energy certificates (also known as renewable power plant incentive or RECs) represent the clean attributes of electricity from solar panels and wind turbines. Buying these credits is not equivalent to getting an electric bill; instead, it's like claiming free money for your home.
Solar energy harnessed from the sun’s natural rays has proven to be one of the best forms of renewable green energy available. Harnessing the sun’s power comes with numerous advantages, which include reducing reliance on non-renewable fossil fuels. However, the question often asked is- how reliable is...
Solar-powered energy is a clean and renewable source of energy that can be used for water treatment as a simple, reliable, and sustainable way to provide clean drinking water. It’s also one of the most cost-effective technologies for communities that lack access to safe drinking water. It’s...
Renewable energy is a sustainable form of power that can't run out, like an eternal sun. Alternative means different from what most people think it does - not just alternatives to coal! A renewable resource may be used over and again without decreasing in...
The future of the world’s energy is in clean, renewable sources like solar and wind. As we have started to realize just how much pollution these fossil fuel-based plants pose on our environment as well as climate change- which will only get worse with time without...
In 2020, renewable energy sources accounted for about 12% of total U.S. Energy Consumption and 20% of electricity generation.  Renewables in America are on the rise as they continue to grow by 3-5 percent per year which accounts for a large percentage (12%) towards our country’s electricity...
Solar Power through Solar Energy is emerging as the most popular and sustainable renewable energy source on Earth. It could potentially hold the answer to reversing the destruction of the earth and its natural resources. However, there is still a lot we do not know about solar...
How does solar power work in modern times? The list of ways to leverage this form of renewable energy is endless, leaving many homeowners wondering how far they can really go when it comes time for them to decide if “going green” or using sustainable forms of...
