Alternative Fuel & Energy Resources
Geothermal, Hydro, Solar, and Wind Power | Energy Efficient Homes | Electric Vehicles
Anyone not living in a cave for the last couple decades is aware of the push for "green" forms of energy, that is, forms of energy creation and consumption that do little or no damage to the environment. Information on topics like geothermal, hydro, solar, and wind power generation, energy efficient homes and vehicles, proper disposal of hazardous materials, etc., are seemingly everywhere nowadays.|
