What is renewable energy?
Renewable energy is generated from natural resources such as the sun, wind and water, which are continuously and naturally replenished. Renewable energies provide a secure and local source of energy.
What are the benefits of using renewable energy?
Using local natural resources reduces dependency on other countries for non-renewable energy fuels like coal, oil, and natural gas.
It reduces production of carbon dioxide and other greenhouse gases (GHGs).
The growth of the renewables market creates job opportunities and pushes down the prices of technology and energy production.
Surplus energy can generate income or offset bills saving you money (link to Feed In Tariff).
