Why Clean Energy Is Better For You And The Environment

How To Benefit From Clean Energy

Most of the electricity in the U.S. is made from polluting, nonrenewable resources like coal. Making electricity is the biggest, industrial cause of pollution and creates more carbon dioxide than anything else. But we need electricity in order to function in our everyday lives. The good news is there are clean energy options that are 100% pollutant free. Renewable energy sources naturally replenish and are inexhaustible. When you think about getting energy from natural resources like the wind, sun, and water, it doesn’t seem like there could be a better way to go.

The Inner Workings Of Clean Energy

An electric grid is kind of like a bathtub. When you use a little bit of the energy, it’s like draining a little water from the tub. But water, from either clean or dirty sources, can be placed in the tub. As demand for renewable energy sources increases, more of the clean water and less of the dirty water will go into the tub in order to keep the tub at a filled level. But which would you rather bathe in?

Environmental Benefits

Before you think about anything else, renewable energy impacts the environment in a positive way. Generating electricity using renewable resources has great impacts on the environment. First, it doesn’t emit carbon dioxide or other pollutants into the air, water, or soil. Nor does it damage the land due to fossil fuel extraction. It comes from unlimited resources that are constantly replenished, such as the sun and the wind. And there are many forms of renewable energy that use little to no water. You can help preserve and protect the environment for future generations by using renewable energy.

Economic Benefits

There are also plenty of monetary ways that renewable energy will benefit you and the world around you. Creating more energy in this manner also creates new jobs to collect and maintain the sources that make the energy. It also supports a homegrown energy source to help secure the country’s future, filled with its own energy sources. And it brings development to rural areas, where many of the renewable facilities are situated because of the space and resource potential.

Do Your Part, Invest In Clean Energy

You can’t build a wind turbine in your backyard by yourself and you might not have the money to install a roof full of solar panels.
