ABSTRACT
The article describes the benefits of solar and wind power as energy sources. With solar power, sunlight is used to warm houses, heat bath water and even cook food. Wind power has the capability to generate electricity when wind turns the blades on a wind turbine. Solar and wind power produce cleaner energy than oil. This means less pollution in the air.
