Alternative energy choices
The energy that we use today comes from limited resources such as natural gas, oil and coal. Limited things go, the cost of using them only increase if we reduce the supply.

Luckily for us there are available renewable energy sources. The only problem is that we haven't shown enough initiative and the willingness to use them.

The initial cost of switching to alternative energy systems can truthfully, expensive.   This alternative should be reviewed in the long term. The savings will be realized in monthly increments over time.
Now, unlike these resources mentioned earlier, renewable energy sources are easy to find and can be used by anyone who is willing to invest in systems for collecting energy from them.

Since there is not a fee for the use of sunlight, wind or water then will your alternatives for research to the needs of your family.

For example, if you live in a cold location and are constantly to heat water, instead of electricity to draw from the grid to meet this need you a solar domestic hot water system install.

If you live in a climate where there is an abundance of Sun you might consider a solar energy system. You will convert the Sun to electricity to power your home.

In a climate where the wind is a factor than a wind turbine system would be a consideration. This would be something that you even consider building themselves.
Those who are near a running stream live can research and consider a micro-hydro system in order to generate their own electricity.

There must be at least one viable renewable energy source where your family lives.  And in some cases may you live in a climate or region where you use more than one kind of renewable energy source can make. You may at some point, your monthly utility bills to eliminate the change.
