Our energy requirements are reaching a new high with every passing day, thereby forcing us to look for better ways to get the required energy. Import of foreign oil indicates that we are still not energy independent as we should have been a long time ago only if the US DOE devised effective energy policies. The US DOE thinks a bit narrow as compared to the DOE in other countries across the globe when it comes to formulating an effective energy plan for countering the energy crisis situation.
Over the years, the US Government has shown deep interest in promoting renewable energy, a form of energy that they consider quite vital for attaining energy independence. As an endeavor for its promotion, the Government has funded different projects for wind farms and solar energy. It may seem a wise and ethical decision for the Government to use the taxpayers money for funding such projects, but actually its not a decision worthy enough to welcome.
