Solar energy, wind energy or even a dam are the options for renewable energy. There is also a method called Hydroelectricity which is the falling water draws from the power into energy. It usually converts from power to energy from a dam because a dam can store tons of water. Therefore, it will have the huge power to push the energy generators. At daytime, it will produce energy while it will store the water in reservoir at nighttime. It works as the exhibit 1 below.
The development of solar energy has significantly decreased the amounts of waste and its damage to the environment. Solar energy had been the majority on the earth because the sun distributes the sunlight to earth each day. When the solar board catches the sunlight, it transforms the sunlight into energy and deliver electricity for households and industries. It covers most of the demand in the world...
