Renewable energies are the future, and Utah has the opportunity to produce them in abundance. Many parts of our state are consistently sunny or windy, and the costs of solar and wind power continue to fall. We should take advantage of these resources. Not only are they economical, but they will reduce our terrible air pollution.
Many Utah families see installing solar or wind power generators at home as a means to self-reliance. The state should support them in this desire by making products like rooftop solar cells more affordable. In a disaster, steady power generation in local our communities would be priceless.
