Renewables - the Environment Centre (tEC)

 

After making your home as energy efficient as possible, you may want to consider using renewable energy sources to further improve the energy efficiency of your property. Renewable energy plays an important role in reducing CO2 emissions and avoiding depletion of finite resources. Renewable energy comes from inexhaustible resources such as wind, flowing water, sun and the heat of the earth.
