The Department of Energy (DOE) at the U.S. Government is a great starting point to learn about the various types of renewable and sustainable energy sources. The DOE has an entire section dedicated to clean energy, complete with a homeowner’s guide to going solar.
Depending on your individual location, your utilities company may also have a clean energy section on their website about thier own clean energy goals. For example, Con Edison supports customers who want to install solar panels on their homes and businesses, but the company has also expanded into wind power through partnerships with wind farms in Nebraska and South Dakota.
There are many organizations that focus on how to be more mindful of our earth and focus on sustainable energy tactics. When you join an organization or community, not only are you going to be learning more information about the global impact – but you will have a larger reach as a group to implement meaningful changes.
