Cleaning the Air.

What is Clean Energy?

That is just one of three questions I will be addressing in this article. The term “clean energy” gets thrown around a lot these days and you probably have your own definition of it. It simply is heat and electricity produced from renewable sources, generating little or no pollution or emissions.


Now while that sounds easy enough to understand Clean Energy is not just a thing,  it is a whole movement. In last week's article you read about how these small towns are turning over a new leaf. The are becoming cleaner with their energy by switching from coal to natural gas to produce electricity.


This is not just happening in Ohio, but all across the nation and the world. People are swapping out one energy source for a cleaner one. They are “cleaning the air”, creating jobs and boosting their economy.


Now I am not on the side of global warming doomsday stuff, like the ice caps will melt and flood half of the US. However I am on the side of improving air quality and creating cheaper and more efficient energy. That is what clean energy is doing and will continue to do. There are many paths you can take as an individual to get cleaner energy. There are a plethora of options and price points to meet your needs.


Here are answers to two questions to get you started on your clean energy path. They will tell you which is the cleanest and dirtiest energies, so you can figure out if you are using the worst or the best or if you want to fall in the middle.
