Get Involved: Energy
With the recent increase in gas and electricity prices, many families and communities are starting to wonder where their energycomes from and what their other options are. There are hundreds of different types of energy that are used around the world and in the US to generate our electricity. Of the many different types, the most common forms of energy that fuel our homes, our cars and bring food to the grocery store are coal, oil, natural gas, nuclear power, and various forms of renewable energy.
