Recycling one aluminum can saves enough energy to run a TV for three hours – or the equivalent of a half a gallon of gasoline.

The energy saved from recycling one glass bottle will operate a 100-watt light bulb for four hours.

PAPER The amount of wood and paper we throw away each year is enough to heat 50,000,000 homes for 20 years. To produce each week’s Sunday newspapers, 500,000 trees must be cut down. We throw away enough office paper annually to build a wall twelve feet high stretching from Los Angeles to New York City.



SOLAR PANELS A solar panel is a module that uses the energy of sunlight.

The term includes solar collectors used to produce hot water solar-thermal and photovoltaic panels used to generate electricity through solar energy.

WIND FARM A wind farm is a group of wind turbines that convert wind energy into electrical energy. World Premiere: 11 wind turbines of 7.5 MW Enercon wind E126 Estinnes, Belgium, October 10 2010Los wind farms can be located on land or at sea (offshore), the former being the most common, although offshore parks have experienced significant growth in Europe in recent years.

The number of wind turbines that make a park is very variable, and depends primarily on the available surface and wind characteristics at the site.
