Going Green: Two choices
As electricity rates increase, Michiganders are being forced to dig deeper into their pockets to pay their electrical, water and gas bills. With a record setting winter and rising energy cost, consumers are facing record high bills. The U.S. Energy Information Administration shows that since 2012, energy rates have increased 4.3%. One midland residence family, faced a bill of $660 in the December through January billing period. This is leading many consumers to search out new ways, to save.

Using solar energy doesn’t create air pollutants or effect environments when placed on top of buildings. With the benefits of solar energy there are some limitations to it. The sun doesn’t deliver too much sunlight to one place constantly so large surfaces are needed to gather energy. Also, the sun doesn’t hit a location constantly in the same place so the amount of energy collected varies. Solar power is a useful type of green energy.
Wind energy is another alternative power resource. The Earth is unevenly heated so it causes hot air to rise and expand; the

Green Technology, or environmently friendly technology, is technology that does not harm the environment, One reason green energy is superior to other engergy sources, is it does noto deplete the Earths natural resources. Another great reason to use green energy is it does not harm the environnment when making energy as much as other ways.
One of the best ways of creating green energy is through wind turbines.Wind turbines generate electricty through kinetic energy from the wind. When wind blows and catches on the blades they spin, which then makes a generater convert that into usable energy. Some places are making wind farms or, gaint arrays of wind trubines. These wind

The advancement in technology has pushed the world to extreme measures of energy production with new energy sources coming ahead to take position of the traditional energy sources. Nuclear energy is originated from splitting an atom through the process of nuclear fission and fusion while green energy is the one obtained from decomposing foliage or animal waste that also goes by the name bio-fuel or biogas. Comparing these two energies will eventually enable one to determine the best of energy that is not only safe to use to both human beings and the environment but also determine sustainability of each energy technology.

Green Energy is a great way to save money and help save raw materials such as gas and electricity. Companies and engineers argue if Green Energy or Energy Star products are worth using and if the products will save money. Green Energy is used to save energy, such as electricity or gas. Energy star is used to help seal a house to save heat and air conditioning from escaping a house. Energy star is a rating that companies give products that tell the customers that they are energy saving. Green energy is a renewable source of power because it helps save energy and uses the earth’s resources to create and save energy without wasting money (Bishop).

For nuclear energy to be accepted by politicians of developed and developing countries and individuals that will live near reactors, the planning stages for the final step, the repository, should be prioritized. A repository, a facility which successfully houses highly radioactive waste for thousands of years, needs proper planning in order to avoid long-term problems. However, common misconceptions such as that repositories sites may leak radioactive material into the environment make up one of the reasons why nuclear energy is rejected as an energy option. In fact, "Sweden is currently the country closest to realizing a final solution for spent

The economy in the United States continues to struggle through a very sluggish recovery. We are constantly bombarded with terms like green, alternative or renewable energy sources as ways to save money and help the environment. However, there is not an alternative energy company that comes anywhere close to the revenues of the old-fashioned oil and gas industry. The “greenest” energy-as far as money goes- continues to be the multi-billion dollar oil and gas industry. What many people don’t know is that modern technology is helping this industry become more environmentally friendly.

In terms of alternative energy for fuel, things like electric-gas hybrids and biofuel vehicles have been introduced as alternatives to vehicles that use fossil fuels to run. There are certainly disadvantages to using alternative energy sources-- colloquially, “green” energy sources-- but the benefits of using these alternative energy sources far outweighs the disadvantages.
The obvious advantage to using renewable energy sources is that these energy sources, by definition, do not “run out.” For example, if the sun were to burn out, the sudden lack of solar

The Green Deal is a policy launched by the Department of for Energy and Climate Change in the United Kingdom that aims to take a large step towards greater energy efficiency. This measure was initially discussed in 2011 but officially launched in June of 2012. The United Kingdom has an energy consumption rate of nearly 3000 kgoe per annum, which is reasonably high (See Appendix 1). The deal ultimately provides consumers with energy efficient techniques that would cost less than standard equipment in the long term. The Green Deal encourages consumers to do this as it provides them with loans, which can be paid back through the energy bills (Richards). Using energy inefficiently is a

The radiant energy is light, in the form of a photon. Since energy is measured in electron volts, or eV, lets say this photon or group of energy is 2.2 electron volts, which is the color green. The light photon travels and hits an electron, and the electron then absorbs the energy. When the radiant energy is stored in the electron, it turns into electronic energy (Absorption of Radiant Energy).
Any time radiant energy is stored; it turns into a different type of energy. However, the electron has a ground state, which is its standard amount of electron volts of energy it has in it at a time. So, the electron wants to get rid of the extra energy, and therefore it re-emits the extra energy
