Imagine a commodity that can’t be exhausted and replenishes itself over and over again. That’s precisely what renewable energy is.
Green power, as it’s also known, generally refers to electricity generated by the sun, wind, and water. Although the exact definition varies depending on a variety of factors, it generally includes solar, biomass (including landfill gas, waste-to-energy, and other waste products), wind, hydroelectric, and geothermal. Of these, the most well known are solar and wind.
Many, including us, believe that harnessing energy from renewable sources can help put the U.S. on the path to a cleaner environment, energy independence, and a stronger economy. By developing these sources, we can work towards reducing greenhouse gas emissions, stabilizing energy costs, improving energy reliability, strengthening the nation’s independence, and creating jobs, particularly in rural areas.
Now, residents and businesses all over the country are making more concerted efforts to help the environment by stipulating that a certain percentage of their energy come from renewable sources. Their dedication and investment are helping to provide the resources needed to build wind and solar farms.
In future blog posts, we’ll describe in greater detail the programs businesses and some residential customers have gotten involved in to help bring renewable energy sources online faster. You’ll learn what it means to say you’re green. Stay tuned.

Though Electric Vehicles (EVs) have been an option for nearly a decade, they can still seem a little foreign and out of reach for any car buyer. Constellation is working with EZ-EV to make sure you have all the information you need when making a decision that can impact your home energy use.
Wireless technology has become so commonplace that most people hardly notice how much it has changed our lives.
