Canadian Points of View: Alternative Energy Exploration;9/30/2019, p1
The article presents general information about alternative energy exploration. It discusses renewable and non-polluting energy sources such as solar power, wind power, tidal power, wave power, and geothermal power. It notes that Canada is the largest hydroelectric power producer and second largest electricity exporter in the world. An overview of the history of exploration into alternative energy sources is also presented.
