What is Green Energy?
Green energy is energy generated from
non-polluting, environmentally beneficial and renewable sources.
Examples are solar power, wind power, small scale hydro-electricity, and
energy generated from agricultural sources or landfill gas.
On average, every kilowatt-hour (kWh) of
renewable power avoids the emission of more than one pound of carbon
dioxide, a global warming pollutant. Green power technologies generally
require much less water to operate than nuclear and coal power plants,
and as more consumers buy green power, the cost is likely to improve.
How Can I Buy Green Energy?
You can help support the move toward clean renewable energy by
buying green power blocks either from your local utility provider or
through a national renewable energy provider - see Green-e
