We all need to do our part to help save the environment - bring our own bags to the supermarket, recycle, shut electronics off that we’re not using, etc. There’s one easy way that we can all help combat the effects of global warming on a day to day basis: powering our home or business with green (aka renewable) energy. Renewable energy (including hydropower, solar power, wind power, geothermal power and biomass) is 100 percent clean and uses resources that are sustainable - sun, water, wind, etc. - and do not negatively impact the environment.
So how do you find out what green energy options are available in your area?
