Advantages of Renewable Energy for your Home 

Adopting renewable energy for your home allows you to have a more sustainable life, without changing your lifestyle. A simple switch that helps the planet and people. 

Our power comes from renewable energy sources such as the sun, wind, and hydro, which are constantly replenished. So unlike fossil fuels, there will be a long-term supply of energy.  
Plus, these natural resources supply a cleaner and healthier way to generate energy, and they will last for generations to come.  

What are the sources of renewable energy?

Solar panel farm
Solar Power

The most common renewable energy source, which converts solar radiation into electricity. Sunlight causes electrical charges to move due to the internal electric field inside the panels PV cell, allowing electricity to flow and provide power. 

Wind turbine farm
Wind Power

Kinetic energy from the wind pushes the blades which spins an internal generator to produce renewable electricity. 

Hydroelectric plant
Hydroelectric Power

The natural movement of water flowing downstream pushes against a submerged turbine to turn a generator, similar to wind power. Creating renewable electricity that isn’t reliant on any weather conditions.
