Renewable energy is important because of the benefits it provides, such as:
Environmental Benefits: Renewable energy technologies are clean sources of energy that have a much lower environmental impact than conventional energy technologies.
Energy for our children’s children: Renewable energy will not run out. Not ever. Other sources of energy are finite and will some day be depleted.
Jobs and the Economy: Most renewable energy investments are spent on materials and workmanship to build and maintain the facilities, rather than on costly energy imports. Renewable energy investments are usually spent within our own state, frequently in the same province, and often in the same town. This means your energy money stays home to create jobs and fuel local economies, rather than going overseas.
Meanwhile, renewable energy technologies developed and built sold overseas, providing a boost to our trade economy.
Energy Security: Because of the frequent oil supply disruptions, our nation has increased its dependence on foreign oil supplies instead of decreasing it. This increased dependence impacts more than just our national energy policy.
Because of the few benefits listed above, it is strongly recommended that we, as a nation, contribute in the whole project, making full use of renewable energy such as solar power, wind power, hydropower, ocean power and green power, to name a few!
