To tackle the climate crisis means we need to shift our energy production from fossil fuels to renewable sources.
Renewable energy – from the sun, water, or the ground – doesn’t run out. It also doesn’t produce any carbon emissions. This is why renewables are the only way to go when it comes to our long-term energy supply.
Since the sources of renewable energy are free, the energy collected by technologies such as solar panels also doesn’t cost us anything to use. The more energy we can generate for ourselves from renewable sources, the lower our energy bills will be.
