The Advantages of Using Renewable Energy

Finding reliable sources of renewable energy is important in order to help slow the effects of global warming and to reduce the need for fossil fuels.

There are also other advantages to using renewable energy to replace the burning of fossil fuels. Some of the biggest advantages of using renewable energy are:

Renewable energy will never be depleted

No matter how much energy is needed by people all over the world renewable energy sources will never run out and can continue to make electricity and heat as long as there are people that need them.

Renewable energy helps the environment

This chiefly comes from producing fewer greenhouse gases that contribute to global warming. In addition to slowing down the effects of global warming using renewable energy sources also helps preserve ecosystems that would be destroyed to develop the fossil fuels found in the land.

When there are fewer pollutants in the air the plants and trees that make oxygen will be healthier and will put out more oxygen which will make people healthier.

Renewable energy is safer than fossil fuel

Fossil fuels used to create heat and electricity and as fuel for vehicles create toxic chemicals that are released into the air and lead to bad air quality and acid rain.

Everything that is alive is affected by that kind of pollution including us humans. Renewable energy sources greatly reduce or even eliminate pollution of the air and water.

With less pollution in the air and water, people will be healthier and won’t be at risk of health problems caused by pollution like asthma and other respiratory problems.

Renewable energy sources create jobs and industry

Because renewable energy sources require specialized equipment and lots of research the business of creating renewable energy sources that are accessible to lots of people means that there will be a lot of new businesses starting and a lot of new jobs for people.

Renewable energy means cheaper energy

When countries depend on renewable energy sources instead of foreign fossil fuels the cost of renewable energy will go down making electricity and heat more affordable for everyday people.

Renewable energy also offers a chance for increased economic development. This is especially true for people who in the past have been struggling to make a living like farmers that grow grain and plants that can be used for bioenergy.
