Renewable energy
<div>Solar Energy~ Solar energy is the cleanest and most abundant renewable energy source available. It harnesses the energy emitted from the son and converts it into electricity. Pros: Solar panels give off no pollution making them an environmentally friendly option for producing electricity. A large proportion of the earth receives enough sunlight to make solar panels a viable option for generating electricity. Cons: they can cause 10 of thousands of dollars. They would only be useful during daylight. </div>
<div>Hydropower~ Hydroelectric power is created by flowing water. As the water flows, it powers machines that are able to generate power. </div><div>Pros: Generating electricity with hydro energy is not polluting itself.</div><div>Compared to among others fossil fuels and nuclear energy, hydroelectricity is much safer. There is no fuel involved.</div><div>Cons: Hydroelectric power plants may affect fish migration and matting. Electricity generation and energy prices are directly related to how much water is available.</div>
<div>Biomass~ organic matter,especially plant matter, that can be concerted to fuel and is therefore regarded as a potential energy source. A very expensive source of energy. Pros: Biomass is a completely renewable resource. Fuel can be produced using grains and plant waste that would otherwise go unused. Waste products generated by human activity, such as paper and household garbage can be collected and used as biomass to generate energy. Cons: Direct burning of biomass as fuel can release carbon dioxide and other greenhouse gases into the atmosphere, it is highly expensive. </div>
<div>Geothermal~ a form of energy obtained from within the earth, originating in its core; also, energy produced by extracting the earth's internal heat. Pros: You can always count on geothermal heat, because ground temperatures remain constant. When you invest in them they pay themselves off in 5-8 years. Cons: Takes up a lot of space. Costs a lot of money to install. </div>
<div>Wind Power~ energy that is derived from wind :used to generate electricity or mechanical power. </div><div>Pros: It can be used during night as wind blows throughout the entire day. Produces a large amount of energy. Cons: Birds and bats can get caught in the turbines and kill them. They have to have a large area like a big field. </div>
