Renewable Energy

Fossil fuels are non-renewable, that is, they draw on finite resources that will eventually become too expensive or too environmentally damaging to retrieve. In contrast, renewable energy resources like wind and solar energy are constantly replenished and will never run out. Most renewable energy comes either directly or indirectly from the sun. Utilization of Renewable Energy provides environmental benefits, energy security and also stimulates the economy by creating new jobs and opportunities.
