What Might Replace Fossil Fuels?
It’s no secret that fossil fuels and nuclear power are finite energy sources, and they’re also costly as well as potentially damaging to the environment. Luckily, alternative energy sources that are renewable, cost-efficient and eco-friendly are becoming more plentiful than ever.
Wind and Solar Power
The most common forms of alternative energy today are solar and wind. These energy sources are naturally occurring, infinite and produce no emissions. And they’re inexpensive! Solar power can heat a tiny house in Quebec for only $100 all winter, in addition to powering a full-size refrigerator, water pump system, lights and electrical outlets.
But solar and wind energy are just the tip of the iceberg when it comes to alternative energy. Instead of looking to nature to supply energy, we can also create it on our own using mechanical energy on cloudy, windless days.
The continuous innovation in the search for renewable and eco-friendly energy sources points to a brighter future, providing benefits not only now, but for generations to come!
