Renewable Energy

Renewable energy - wind, solar, geothermal, hydroelectric, and biomass which provides substantial benefits for our climate, our health, and our economy. The United States currently relies heavily on coal, oil, and natural gas for its energy. Fossil fuels are non-renewable, that is, they draw on finite resources that will eventually dwindle, becoming too expensive or too environmentally damaging to retrieve. In contrast, the many types of renewable energy resources-such as wind and solar energy-are constantly replenished and will never run out.
