Technology has made solar power generation much more efficient in cost and
efficient. For instance, commercial products are becoming more widespread
and can be found at places like 'Canadian Tire' for as little as $60.

Wind turbines are becoming a more popular solution for augmenting the
strain on our power system. Canada’s installed wind energy capacity was
944 MW in April 2006, which is enough to power more than a quarter million
homes, this is expected to double over the next five years.

Teachers and students can learn about renewable energy and wind power by
building working models vertical axis wind turbines.
Sky Generation's first wind turbine has been installed south of Ferndale,
on the Bruce Peninsula.
Bio energy has been around for a very long time, many common uses of bio
energy are, burning renewable fuels such as vegetable oils
A dam is the most common example of water being used to generate alternative
energies, and Canada is a leader in hydroelectric energy which supplies
the majority of our electricity. But with some new breakthroughs in science
the ability to fracture water using low electrical current may be a feasible
way to tap water for energy as well.
Zero Point Energy
Although zero point energy is still in the research and development stages.
I believe there is much hope for this idea and foresee this as becoming
the source of power for the future. For more information on this research
