RENEWABLE ENERGY
 
Let’s Clear Something Up

Did you know that Alternative and Renewable Energy are terms that are used interchangeably, but that’s inaccurate?  There’s some overlap, but they are actually two different things. Alternative energy describes energy derived from a non-fossil fuel source, typically with lower emissions and environmental impact.  Renewable energy is different, in that it is derived from natural sources that are constantly self-replenishing.  While alternative energy is a step in the right direction, renewable energy harnesses the power of nature to create an inexhaustible source of energy and is the greenest way to fuel your energy needs.

 

 

 

Renewable Energy Need to Knows

Solar, wind, and water are examples of renewable resources that can be used as energy sources. With the application of technology, solar energy can be converted directly into electricity, and is gaining popularity as solar technology costs are lowering.

Hydropower converts flowing water into usable energy. In areas with appropriate wind cycles, wind farms are springing up high on the horizon, using large clusters of turbines to generate power for business and residential utility customers. Exciting developments in the use of deepwater, offshore locations are making wind power a reality in new regions, with incredible demand hastening their construction.

Phoenix buys 100% renewable energy credits for wind generated power to make available for our consumers. According to the U.S. Energy Information Administration, in 2015, 13% of the electricity generation and 10% of energy consumption were attributed to renewable sources. Those are numbers we’re committed to seeing grow.
