    Economy & Communities Find out where your energy comes from
    Where does the energy in your region come from? Which energy is a renewable source?

    Archela Daly's avatar
    Archela Daly 4/27/2022 8:39 AM
    The energy in my area comes mostly from natural gas and coal, followed by nuclear. Wind, hydro, and solar are low but will hopefully become greater each year. I would love to install solar panels at my house!
