Today, the advancements in technology is leading to the increase in demand of non-
renewable resources, and due to this demand, it is rising the amount of such resources
going to be diminished, which is directing the attention of concerned citizens to
alternative energy solutions.

The revolutionary ideas of many innovative environmentalists, engineers, and scientists
could be seen in action all over the world. Inventions of the new wave machinery that
uses natural renewable resources from the earth, as well as power from the sun, had
made it possible to cut back on the human dependency of fossil fuels and other additional
commodities.

By making use of wind, water, geothermal, solar, alcohol from plants, and other sources
of power, even the businesses along with residential home owners are able to use various
pieces of equipment that do not require any type of fossil fuels. The alternative energy
solutions can also be extremely beneficial to the environment and the Earth itself by
reducing the amount of pollutants that are released into the atmosphere.

Many fossil fuels such as oil give off massive amounts of toxic pollutants into the air
when they are burnt for use, which always leads to acid rain, greenhouse gases, and other
hazardous problems that are very harmful to all human beings.

Alternative energy solutions have led to the development of solar panels that can be used
to power many things like street lights, school zone lights, houses, landscaping lights, and
other devices that need electricity in order to function properly.

In order to meet the needs of domestic consumers who chose solar power as their fuel
source, small scale panels are used but if an entire residential community needs a power
source, constructing a solar panel farm would be the best solution.

By using the sun’s light, solar panel harnesses the power and then converts that into a
usable supply of energy to thousands of homes or business, depending on how big the
solar panel farm is.

Other alternative energy solutions that use natural resources of the earth are windmills
and hydropower which individually obtain power from separate types of natural sources.

Windmills harness the force of wind by simply converting the cycling force of its turbine
blades into power, which can then be distributed to end-users. However, the hydropower
uses the massive force of continuously moving water, such as rivers, streams, dams,
and even the ocean to generate turbine rotations, which then creates power that can be
mechanically used to do various types of work.
