Guide to Purchasing Green Power
This online engineering PDH interactive presentation provides a brief overview of voluntary purchases of electricity generated from renewable resources such as solar, wind, geothermal, some forms of hydropower, and biomass.
Today, the diverse array of energy resources used to create electricity can produce very different environmental impacts. In the United States, power generation is still the nation’s single largest source of industrial air pollution and is a major contributor to greenhouse gas emissions.
