Renewable Energy

Green Energy can be generated by renewable, natural energy sources such as solar, wind, geothermal, hydro, wave and tidal power.

These green energy sources are naturally replenished and have a lesser impact on the environment than the burning of fossil fuels, such as oil and coal, both of which which take thousands of years to form and in a finite supply.

Green energy is also a preferred power source as it creates less pollution in both it’s extraction and consumption.
