Abstract

As we move into the 21st Century, fossil fuel resources needed to produce electricity are diminishing rapidly. This project examines two renewable energy sources and outlines the rationale behind their inclusion into the United States Energy Policy. The project examines investments in both solar and wind energy to outline their benefits to society and their economic viability. Health benefits associated with the two energy sources are also considered.
