Because energy is there whenever we need it, it's easy to forget where it comes from and how much it costs.
Every year, we use more energy than we did the year before. All that energy adds up, and much of it is wasted by using too much or not using it wisely.
Energy isn't free, so wasting it is like wasting money - and we all know that's not a good idea!
Most of the energy sources we depend on, like coal and natural gas, can't be replaced. Once we use them up, they're gone forever.
By using renewable energy sources, we reduce our dependence on fossil fuels, which are not only becoming more expensive and difficult to find, but also cause pollution.
Renewable energy — wind, solar, geothermal, hydroelectric, and biomass — provides substantial benefits for our climate, our health, and our economy.
