Eight things YOU can do to help save energy!

Solar Power

One clean, safe form of energy comes from the sun. This is called solar power. The sun's energy is renewable, which means nature can provide it again and again. Since the sun will never stop shining, we will have this clean source of energy forever. Solar power can be used for just about anything. Over a million homes in the United States get heat or electricity from solar power, and even the space station uses solar energy in outer space!
