Renewable energy, also referred to as “green energy,” is energy that comes from resources that are constantly being renewed, such as sunlight, wind, water and geothermal heat. It does not generate carbon emissions or air pollution, and helps sustain natural resources.
Converting flowing water into usable energy, producing hydropower. It's also one of the oldest types of renewable sources. Water has been used to power gristmills, sawmills, and other mechanical mills. In the late 19th century, water became an early source for electricity production, a way of generating power that Clearview Energy takes advantage of today.
Generated by harnessing energy from the sun, solar power is also one of the more "portable" sources of renewable energy, with solar energy cells being found on everything from calculators to the roofs of houses to vast solar farms, covering acres of land. And while it may seem like a modern form of technology, the first solar panels were actually developed in 1884.
Whether powering ship sails or windmills, wind has long been a source of power. Now, we're harnessing the power of wind to turn turbines that generate energy. It's a rapidly growing source of green electricity, with wind farms dotting the rural landscape in places like West Texas, California and Arizona.
Produced from naturally occurring steam and hot water from under the Earth’s surface. By using green energy resources to power our homes and businesses, we can prevent further environmental damage and help save fossil resources for future generations.
Turbines produce wind energy with a three-bladed turning mechanism at the end of a large pole. The blades, rotated by the wind, are connected to a turbine that spins and controls a generator, which then produces electricity. Wind energy produces zero carbon emissions, and is the most cost-effective green energy option. In the U.S., it employs thousands of Americans in local economies, and it provides an opportunity for farmers to lease their land to windfarms and still farm on the same land. Moreover, it reduces the nation’s dependence on foreign energy sources since it is produced in the U.S.
Clearview provides green energy plans that are based on 100% nationally sourced renewable resources, mostly wind-generated. We are proud to offer an energy source that produces zero carbon emissions, does not deplete our natural resources and contributes to the growth of our economy.
