There is a growing awareness about the need for more sustainable sources of power. However, up to this day, most homes are still powered by gas and electricity.
This is understandable since gas and electricity are also the most readily available power sources. And though there are more environmental friendly alternatives, most people either don’t have the know how to be able to shift to these alternatives, or don’t have the money to do so at once.
The good news is that more and more electricity providers are realizing that there really is a need to shift to more sustainable sources of power, and are doing their part to slowly help people make the shift as well. Instead of simply supplying gas and electric power, they are diversifying their services to selling and even installing solar panel systems. Electric companies are also encouraging consumers to help ease the burden on the power grid during peak hours by offering special rates to those that use more energy during off-peak hours and weekends. Some even get rebates for plugging into the electric grid and allowing power companies to tap into their stored power when needed.
This are small but very significant steps towards changing the future pattern of energy use in the world.
