National Geographic: You Have the Power

What factors are important to consider in order to make informed energy decisions that help solve our energy challenges now and in the future? Why is sustainability an important issue? In this interactive (opens in new tab), select one of three locations and the energy resources and then try to provide 100% of that community's electricity needs while staying within your budget of $1,000,000. Each location has different characteristics that affect how much each energy resource costs. Think about using renewable resources, and pay attention to how your decisions impact the people who live there. You have the power!
