Just quickly, I need someone's opinion/facts of the knowledge: is hydroelectricity better than solar energy (or vise versa) and why? I know that h.e. is one of the ways that Ontario gets their energy, and that both are renewable. I also know that solar is an alternative method, which means it is not as popular. Thanks!

    Since Ontario has far more moving water than sunlight, hydroelectricity seems to be the most efficient.

    I should point out that electricity is electricity and neither one is BETTER than the other. Solar energy has been the pot of gold at the end of the rainbow but no one has found the end of the rainbow yet. The problem is that the efficiency of the solar cells is just not very high although improvements have been made over the past many years. From the Internet, I found an article that stated that the first solar cell was about 1% efficient and that efficiency continued to climb through the years to 30% in 2007.
