Renewable Energy

/Renewable Energy

Renewable energy is defined as the energy collected from renewable sources. Examples of renewable sources are sunlight, wind, rain, tide, waves and geothermal heat. In contrast to other energy sources, these sources are really feasible. Using renewable energy will reduce the energy bills. It is suitable for remote and rural areas. The main renewable energy resource which is plenty in the Earth is the sunlight. We can convert sunlight to electricity using solar panels. The sunlight will be less in the cloudy seasons. At that time if there is the wind then we can use wind energy too. To convert wind energy to power we need wind turbines.
