The results are in from the exclusive iSustainableEarth.com poll to find America's top renewable energy.
Clean energy is at the core of a sustainable lifestyle and is critical to help curb the effects of global warming. With renewable energy accounting for less than 20% of America’s total energy production, we have a lot of room for improvement. In order for us to achieve mass adoption of these energy sources we must answer the question, “which renewable energy source is most favorable?” It is this question that led us create an exclusive iSustainableEarth online poll to find the answer. The results are in and the finding provide a clear path to America’s favorite renewable energy source.
The exclusive online poll achieved 281 unique votes and asked iSustainableEarth’s readers, “what is your favorite type of renewable energy?” The potential responses were randomized and included all the major types of renewable energy in America, which are wind energy, solar energy, geothermal energy, hydropower, bioenergy, ocean energy and hydrogen & fuel cells. We recently closed the poll and the results are in, we now know what America’s favorite renewable energy is and how that correlates to its percent of total renewable energy in the U.S.
As renewable energy continues to gain a foothold in the U.S., many Americans may not endorse or favor certain types of renewable energy sources. By locating the sources that resonate with the population, it may be possible to gain further adoption by placing our efforts around the more popular energy sources. Thus, without further delay, let’s uncover America’s favorite renewable energy source.
The readers have spoken and have allowed the world know which renewable energy source America favors. The results are surprising in some sense and expected on the other hand. The results are as follows:
Identifying our favorite renewable energy is just one step in moving us closer to a cleaner and greener future. As Americans continue to embrace sustainable living, the openness to adopt a cleaner energy grows. With solar energy being America’s favorite renewable energy, imagine the impact we could have if every home had just one solar panel on the roof.
As noted in one of our previous articles, the planet receives around 1,366 watts of direct solar radiation per square meter, it is estimated that we would only need about 6.4 percent of the total landmass in the United States to power the entire planet. We just need the world to wake up and want to take advantage of the free and renewable energy our sun produces each day.
