Renewable Energy

The benefits of renewable energy

Clean and Local Job Creation— The renewable energy industry is the fastest-growing source of electricity generation and one of the fastest-growing job sectors in the country according to the US Energy Information Administration.

More Reliable and Resilient— Unlike traditional energy resources, wind and solar energy systems do not require single-site power plants. This means they are more resilient to disruption from storms and other extreme events. Renewable energy is also less variable than traditional energy, allowing for stable, long-term pricing.

Fewer GHG emissions— Transitioning from fossil fuel-sourced energy to renewables reduces greenhouse gases (GHGs), the emissions that lead to climate change. In the U.S., about a third of GHG emissions come from the electricity sector; renewable energy sources, produce little to no emissions.
