In this video and lesson, students explore solar and wind power—two important renewable energy sources. Unlike the nonrenewable energy sources that humans currently use (fossil fuels, coal and natural gas), solar and wind power can quickly replenish themselves and are usually available in a never-ending supply. Acting as residents of different regions, students weigh the pros and cons of each renewable energy option for a region, and make a recommendation based on their evaluation.
