Choosing renewable, green energy is mandatory if we want to preserve our planet for future generations. PartnerPete helps expats get connected to all the needed utilities in the Netherlands. When connecting energy, we always strive to do so with the planet in mind. In this article, we will tell you all about the benefits of renewable energy.
What is Renewable Energy?
Renewable energy, also known as green energy, is made from natural energy sources that, as the name suggests, can be renewed. It is therefore infinite as opposed to being generated by limited resources like oil, gas, or coal. Green energy can come from biomass, solar energy, water power, and wind energy. Renewable energy, therefore, comes in many forms, but they all share the same characteristics of being renewable and harmless for the environment.
Advantages usage Green Energy
Using green energy has a couple of perks opposed to traditional energy sources:
- Reliable: since renewable energy is infinite, high demands can be met now and in the future. Fossil fuels are finite and are therefore a less reliable source of energy.
- Clean: opposed to traditional fossil fuels that produce substantial levels of emissions, the production of green energy is green and therefore unharmful for the environment.
- Efficient: renewable energy can be extracted, generated, and utilized without any serious negative environmental impact. As the resources are replenished continuously, it doesn’t get any more efficient than this.
Switching is easier than ever
Switching to green energy has never been so easy. The time that opting for renewable energy came at a premium price is over, and the market is known to be open and competitive. Today there are lots of providers offering renewable energy in the Netherlands. Green energy packages are known as some of the cheapest on the market. In other words, there’s no reason not to go green. You’re in control, and that means you’re also able to save the planet by switching and saving.
Heating your house with renewable energy sources may sound like a no-brainer, but actually deciding on what kind of energy you want isn’t quite as simple as it may seem. Go ahead and ask yourself the question: Solar power? Wind power? Hydropower? Well? It’s not an easy decision, and it can get so overwhelming that it actually stops you from going green.
