iStock_000004788253Medium_revIt's no surprise that the rising cost of fossil fuels and their environmental impact is driving a global transition toward renewable energy. But if you're feeling a touch of déjà vu, you're not off base – we've done this all before. Our ancestors used whale blubber to light and heat their homes. Then the whale population dwindled and blubber became too costly (plus the whales were dying out), so we switched to kerosene. Later we replaced kerosene with electricity from coal and natural gas, and eventually became dependent on petroleum.

Now the shift is toward renewable energies like solar, wind power, and nuclear. The technologies are still developing, and many are already available with government rebates and energy company incentives to boot. Use this section to learn about the opportunities and decide what makes the most sense for you.
