Solar power "Solar" is the Latin word for "sun" and it's a powerful source of energy. If you've seen a house with big shiny panels on the roof, that family is using solar power.
Wind power Using the wind to create electricity has been around for a long time. A windmill on a farm can make only a small amount of electricity,
Benefits of Solar power Solar energy is energy that is derived and sourced from the sun. Everything has its advantages and disadvantages, its pluses and minuses. So, naturally, there must be a number of solar power advantages and solar power disadvantages too, right?
Benefits of wind power The wind is free and with modern technology it can be captured efficiently. Once the wind turbine is built the energy it produces does not cause green house gases or other pollutants.
Disasters of wind power Wind turbines have been hailed as one of the greatest advancements in the age of renewable energy While the conversation that wind turbines are too expensive and unreliable often comes up in renewable energy discussion
Disasters of Solar power Studies have shown that extreme weather- related disasters are on the rise, and that these disasters are disproportionally affecting Asian cities and countries.
Facts about wind power Wind power involves turning energy from the wind into other forms of useful energy. Windmills have been around for a long time, they were used in Persia (Iran) as far back as 200 B.C.
