Certainly, everyone talks about how important clean energy is and how vital it is for all of us to pay attention to it.  While using clean energy definitely has many advantages, there are a few disadvantages that you should consider when deciding whether or not to switch over.

Many renewable energy sources are free to use, making them a great advantages. These include the sun, wind, tides and geothermal activity.  After the initial cost of many of these items, including solar panels, wind turbines and geothermal energy equipment, the only costs you’ll have are maintenance related.

Similarly, you won’t have to worry about price rises from gas, energy or electricity companies.  You’ll be energy efficient and self sufficient from fossil fuel. You can also find government grants for some of the natural energy projects depending on your location.

There are a few disadvantages to using clean energy as opposed to fossil fuels.  The initial costs of setting up for renewable energy may cost a good deal.  Also, you probably won’t be able to completely replace your current energy or power supply, so you’ll still have some reliance on the methods you are trying to move away from using.
