- Saves Money
- Less Consumption
- Tax Breaks
- Nearly Maintenance Free Benefits: -Energy Credits
- Sustainable and Renewable
-The Noise Factor Problems: -Money
-Climate Variability
-Not 24 Hours Who Will Pay? Solar power is an optional way to power your home. So you would pay for it. The government also pays for the larger solar panels that are in uninhabited areas. By: Lamari Simpkins History The early days of oil were the very opposite of today. The amount of oil was greater than demand. Oil was formed millions of years ago and remained beneath the earth and unused, until recently. For thousands of years, humans utilized oil as a lubricant, adhesive, and many other purposes including, medical use. But through the early 19th century, large-scale production and use of oil was unknown. Works cited -The Evolution of a Valuable Resource." PBS. PBS, 2004. Web. 09 Jan. 2013.

The countries and that import oil to the U.S.A are Saudi Arabia, Canada, Kuwait, Venezuela, Columbia, Brazil, and Ecuador. They get the oil from the countries then send oil in tankers then they get to shore and put the oil in a pipe then they pump the oil that gets send to the refinery then in the refinery then the oil becomes gas that is sent to trucks and that is how we get gas.
