You are Not Directly Purchasing Green Energy for Your Home

Despite the frequent confusion between the phrases "green energy" and "renewable energy," there is a significant—and sometimes puzzling—difference between the two. Not all renewable energy sources are truly green, despite the fact that the bulk of them are. Take hydropower as an example. While some argue that the industrialization and deforestation that take place during the construction of large hydro dams make the process of producing enormous amounts of power from water less environmentally friendly, hydropower, or energy produced from swiftly moving water, is a renewable resource.
