Energize Can you keep this town happy with enough safe and renewable energy?

Energize is a video game that challenges you to provide electricity to a growing community while keeping pollution minimized. You have five unique energy sources to choose from: wind, solar, biomass, nuclear, and fossil fuels. Each form has tradeoffs. A fossil fuel plant is cheap to build, but contributes to pollution. Rely heavily on them and pollution prompts residents to leave. Nuclear provides the best energy source, but theyíre expensive to build and no one wants to live near them so options for placement are limited. You must use a combination of energy sources to achieve the best balance between economic needs and environmental concerns. [source : energizegame.com]
