Solar and wind energy are now two of the most economical methods of generating electricity.
So why aren’t we seeing more of our energy driven by wind and sun? Inertia and monopolies are a large part of the reason.
Can we do anything about it? We sure can.
Write your legislators and power companies asking for cleaner energy sources.
Switch your electricity from being generated by burning fossil fuels to solar and wind – your current electric company may even have a list of renewable electric providers in your area. Suggest your employer do the same.
And talk to your friends, family, and co-workers about it. If they knew solar and wind were less expensive than fossil fuels, maybe they’d make the change too.
