Renewable Energy Programs for Residents

Renewable energy is green energy. It is also quickly becoming affordable energy. As the price of technology drops and the price for traditional fuels fluctuates, renewable energy use is growing across the United States and around the world.
 
If you switch to renewable energy sources such as solar, wind, geothermal and biomass, you will help reduce dependence on a shrinking supply of fossil fuels. You will also help reduce the greenhouse gases that lead to climate change.
