Green energy sources are a unique type of decorative object, introduced in The Sims 2: Mansion & Garden Stuff, The Sims 3 Store and The Sims 4: Eco Lifestyle.

The Sims 2: Mansion & Garden Stuff[edit | edit source]

In The Sims 2: Mansion & Garden Stuff, purchasing any of these objects fulfills the minor "buy green energy source" want. Households with green energy sources receive a financial credit and, with enough sources of green energy, can generate enough of a credit to offset the amount that would be charged in bills; if this occurs, the bills will not be delivered and a notification will give the amount of credit left over, which is added to the household's funds.

There are two kinds of green energy sources — solar panels and windmills. The objects are found in the 'Miscellaneous' portion of the Decorations section in buy mode. Neither object contributes to the environment score.

Harness the power of the very sun! State of the art photovoltaic systems convert otherwise wasted solar rays into utilizable electric energy! Note: does not harness ALL the power of the very sun. That would be dangerous.

Solar panels come in two forms, both named "'You got Sol' by Stellar Products." The first form is a 1x1 panel that costs §600. This panel must be placed on a floor tile, but can also be placed on a roof (as long as there is a floor somewhere below the roof). The second form is a 2x1 panel that costs §1200, and can be placed anywhere on the ground.

This windmill is the perfect Simoleon saving device for any thrifty energy user. Harness the power of a breezy day by converting said breeze directly into electricity for your house! Just don't try using it as giant fan when it's not windy; they do not work that way.

The Windmill is known as "The Aerodynamo." It has a 2x1 footprint, and can be placed on open flat ground.

The Sims 3 Store[edit | edit source]

Green energy sources return in The Sims 3 as freely downloadable items from TheSims3.com. A windmill and a solar panel are available. When placed on the lot, they will reduce the bills of the household, much like in The Sims 2: Mansion & Garden Stuff.

The Sims 4: Eco Lifestyle[edit | edit source]

Like in previous games, the usage of wind turbines, dew collectors and solar panels will reduce a household's bills.

Atmospheric Water Generator[edit | edit source]

Atmospheric Water Generator
Atmospheric Water Generator.png
An atmospheric water generator (AWG) doesn't actually generate water, but rather pulls drinkable, usable water from the surrounding air. While it does require fuel to power, an AWG can cut costs on water bills or provide water on off-the-grid lots.
