5 Ways To Support Clean Energy If Solar Power’s Out Of Reach
There are major changes underway in the energy sector, and coal-dependent utilities are getting decidedly nervous. We may be on the cusp of a disruptive paradigm shift toward smarter, more distributed and cleaner energy. But how do we make it happen?
Installing solar panels or wind turbines is, of course, one way to accelerate the shift — but that option isn’t open to all of us. Many of us rent, for example. Even if you do own a house, on-site renewables aren’t always viable. Despite a dramatic fall in the cost of solar, it still requires a pretty hefty investment (assuming that the new breed of zero-upfront solar companies are not yet servicing your community). For others, some houses just don’t make a good site for renewables.
Never fear, there are still plenty of ways to get in on the clean energy revolution. Here are just a few of them.
- Use less energy
- Buy green power
- Support businesses that use green power
