Many large power generating stations pollute the air and water with their byproducts. Smaller generators that use solar and wind power do not pollute, but many smaller generators are required in order to equal the generation potential of the larger stations and are thus more expensive.

  • Would you buy non-polluting electricity even if it is more expensive?
  • What would make non-polluting electricity more competitive?

Even though the smaller, non-polluting generators will be more expensive, using them would signify a significant decrease in the contamination that electricity production usually causes.  Consequently, this would signify an improvement in the condition of the environment. 

Many non-polluting energy-generating systems are based on natural resources such as sunlight, wind, water movement... Non-polluting energy would be more competitive because it would help to protect the environment therefore conserving its major source of power.
