With the rise in energy prices and the growing concern for a cleaner environment, consumers are becoming more aware of renewable energy technologies. The use of energy from plentiful sources such as the sun and wind has many benefits - it reduces our dependence on fossil fuels, helps the environment and ultimately saves consumers money.

State governments also have begun to take the initiative to mandate utility companies to include renewable energy as part of their energy resources. To a greater degree, these renewable resource standard policies are becoming more and more a part of states’ overall energy policies as fossil fuels, such as coal and natural gas, become scarcer resources to provide energy.

To assist consumers in learning more about renewable energy, the OCC provides general information and a list of additional resources.
