I think that water energy is the best source of renewable energy.
I believe this because with energy like coal for instance you can run out and it takes a long amount of time to be recreated. And with renewable energy link wind and sunlight, you could have a windless day or a cloudy day. But we can all ways create flowing water.

So that's why i think that water is the way to go.

1 . Solar energy is one of the best energy for people to use because , it is much less expensive for people , and that would really help out a lot of people . It is a renewable energy . Solar energy comes from the sun . If you have something with solar energy , it is charged from energy from the sun . Say you have a solar powered car , it would be charged from the suns energy , most days when the sun is out . You would not have to pay for gas anymore for your car . The sun never goes away , so you will ALWAYS have solar energy .

2 . One professional source in natural gas . You can find it here :

Solar Energy is the best source of energy for people to use because, it is an inexhaustible resource, which people cannot use up all of it. Solar power has far fewer environmental consequences than fossil fuels. The negative effects are minor and are related to the manafacturing and disposing of the solar panels which convert solar energy into electrical energy. Cost is main reason that the technology is not more widespred. Solar energy is very expensive to harness in useful quantities.

The renewable energy source that I picked was the Sun. I picked the Sun because we need the sun to live.If we had no sun there would be no life.The Sun is in the center of the Solar System.The Sun is the Earth's ultimate energy source. It is estimated that the sun will continue for another 6 million years. The sun is extremely hot- in the core it is about 18 million degrees Fahrenheit.The Sun is renewable which means it will never run out for a very long time.It does not cost anything to get sunlight you just have almost every where you go.

The website that I went on to get info is

Section 1.

I chose renewable resorces.
1. Because renewable resorces can be found anywhere.
2. They cost not much or any thing.
3. They are also renewable such as newspaper can be torn up and used for mulch.
4. They also be very abundant because again paper because it is made out of trees.
5. And something that is renewable is never going to run out.

Section 2.

Renewable sources are the best to use because you renew it. This can be very good for the environment and this can help people understand how the real world works. The renewable resource is very inexpensive. We use it every single day too, Renewable resources include hydro power, biomass, wind and etc.
