Renewable Energy Sources

  • Solar Power: Energy that comes from the sun; you can use solar pannels to transfer the energy into electricity

  • Wind Power: Energy that comes from the wind; you can use windmills to transfer enrgy into electricity

  • Hydro Power: Energy that come from water; you can use dams or water powered cars to transfer energy into electicity

  • Ethonal: Energy that comes from corn; you can use ethanol powered cars to transfer enrgy into electicity

  • Grothermal: Energy from ground source heat pumps; you can get grothermal energy from a geothermal power plant and use the enrgy to heat your water and home

  • Biomass: Energy from plants and animals; you can use biofuels for in your car and to heat your home

  • Tidal Power: Energy from the ocean's tidal currents; use dams to trap the tides and power homes and factories
