There are a lot more other sustainable energy sources to supply electricity for a home. For instance, a homeowner can tap solar power, turbines, motion from the ocean, among others.
In Costa Rica for instance, they have only used sustainable energy for their electricity needs since the start of this year. In this article, thinkprogress.org lauded the South American nation for its efforts at tapping renewable energy to protect natural resources.
“The Latin American country hasn’t had to use fossil fuels at all so far in 2015, due to heavy rains that have kept hydroelectric power plants going strong. Wind, solar, biomass, and geothermal energy have also helped power the country this year,” thinkprogress.org said.
Australia on the other hand is also exerting efforts towards tapping sustainable energy sources. Magazine.good.is reports Australia has started using the Motion of the Ocean to generate zero-emission electricity and desalinate water.

“As of February 18, that system has been channeling clean, efficient, zero-emission energy into Australia’s power grid, providing electricity to the country’s largest naval base,” the website said.
In the United States meantime, the world’s largest solar farm continues to reduce carbon footprint through the Ivanpah Solar Electricity Generating System. According to this story from Iflscience.com “The complex is estimated to reduce CO2 emissions by more than 400,000 tons per year, which is about the same as taking 88,000 cars off of the road. It also produces less air pollutants, such as sulfur oxides, than natural gas-fired power plants.”
At the end of the day, efforts geared towards using sustainable energy do not only benefit the environment, as it also bodes well to the consumers. This is because the less conventional energy they use, the lower their electricity bills get.
