Some people choose renewable energy over conventional sources. For example, you can supplement home electricity with solar photovoltaic cells on your rooftop. In some areas, utility companies have programs that buy back unused electricity during peak sunshine and supply extra electricity at times of insufficient sunshine. Would you ever consider participating in such a program? Why or why not?

Some people choose renewable energy over conventional sources. For example, you can supplement home electricity with solar photovoltaic cells on your rooftop. In some areas, utility companies have programs that buy back unused electricity during peak sunshine and supply extra electricity at times of insufficient sunshine. Would you ever consider participating in such a program? Why or why not?

Interpretation Introduction

Interpretation:

Whether one would participate in a program where utility companies are providing a scheme, in which companies take back unused electricity in times of high solar energy and provide electricity at times of insufficient solar energy and the reason for this is to be determined.

Concept Introduction:

Coal and petroleum are fossil fuels that are getting depleted, day by day.

In today’s era, there is an urgent need for using alternatives for fossil fuels.

There are renewable resources that can be used to generate power.

Explanation of Solution

In today’s era, there is urgent need of using alternatives for fossil fuels because coal and petroleum are fossil fuels and are getting depleted day by day. There are renewable resources that can be used to generate power. Renewable resources are cheap and can be used for a long time, because they are inexhaustible...
