Green Energy is a term used to describe energy produced from alternative fuels or resources. Currently, the majority of your electricity is generated by burning coal or natural gas in a power plant or by hydro power generated by dams. Extensive research and development has been taking place in order to discover and offer alternatives to these two main sources. These alternative fuels, or green energy, are produced from sources such as wind, solar, or biomass (such as burning wood chips, landfill gasses, agricultural wastes, etc.).
