Right now, the United States has technologies that could replace fossil fuel-based energy production and reduce carbon pollution. While each of these energy sources has challenges, every day, people around the world are working to improve them.
Here Comes the Sun
Solar power is carbon pollution-free and rises every morning. Solar panels are becoming more common on the roofs of homes and businesses. Large-scale solar farms offer huge energy potential for our nation.
Harnessing the Wind
There's enough wind sweeping across our fields, roofs and mountains to meet
one-third of our nation's energy needs.
There's lots of heat beneath our feet—from deep under ground to just below shallow rocks. Earth's heat reliably runs huge turbines to generate loads of electricity.
