“Renewable Energy is derived from sources that cannot be used up: sunshine, water flow, wind and vegetation.”
Renewable Energy involves any energy resource that is naturally regenerated over a short time scale and derived directly from the sun (such as thermal, photochemical, and photoelectric), indirectly from the sun (such as wind, hydropower, and photosynthetic energy stored in biomass), or from other natural movements and mechanisms of the environment (such as geothermal and tidal energy), as a power source. This allows us to live and work in balance with nature.
This principle engages responsible stewardship in properly developing renewable energy resources for the good of our country, by entering into a new era of responsible energy development, while building a greener and more prosperous economy, and at the same time protecting the health and quality of life of all citizens.
Environmental and economic benefits of adding renewable energy to your portfolio can include:
