How will clean energy help future generations?

Alternative Fuel Sources

Replacing fossil fuels -- which will eventually run out -- with alternative sources of energy can help stop this environmental issue. A 100-megawatt wind farm, for example, can generate enough electricity to power 24,000 homes annually, the same as a coal-fired power plant burning 50,000 tons of coal. To put that in perspective, that coal-burning plant emits 2.095 pounds (.95 kg) of carbon dioxide for every kilowatt hour of electricity it generates.
