There were many similarities and differences between the U.S. articles and the U.K. articles. For the discussion our group came up with, we saw that for both sets of articles, the people in communities seemed to favor certain renewable energies that were more popular with the public officials; they were drawn towards the more voted for energies. For the U.S. articles, the certain types of energies were voted upon political groups such as democrats and republicans. The democrats have solar power as their top choice and the republicans have natural gas as their top choice. For the U.K. articles, wind power seems to be more favored by people in that country than people in the U.S. It said, “70 to 80 percent of the people in the U.K. favored wind power”.
We also discussed that in areas that it is windier, wind power is more useful and in areas that it is sunnier, solar power is more useful. It depends on which areas of the world you live in that certain renewable energies are more efficient. Combining wind and solar power in certain areas, is key to actually generating a substantial amount of electricity.
