Frequently Asked Questions
What Is The Most Used Form Of Renewable Energy: Solar Or Wind Power? (In Maine, Usa)?
What Is Most Used Form Of Energy In Maine? Wind Vs. Solar Energy? Which Produces Most Megawatts, And Which Is Owned More? No Oppinions Please, Just Please Have Proof. (Websites, Books Ect)
Can't find figures for Maine.
USA-wide, there is far more wind power than solar power:
Over 34,000MW USA-wide, with 175MW in Maine:
They think solar across the US could hit 28GW by 2016:
And that's with very fast growth and most of that will be in the sourth.
So I'm going to go with wind.
Which Alternative Energy Source Is Better?
If The Nova Scotia Government Could Pick Only One Of These Alternative Energy Sources To Invest In And Promote, Which One Should They Choose?
Solar power, in my opinion, is the safest. Nuclear is too dangerous and cost too much. If we all used solar energy more often we wouldn't have some of the problems we're having now with energy. Wind power is also very effective and doesn't harm the environment.
