Renewable Portfolio Standards are Responsible for Much of the Green Growth

There’s nothing like a government incentive to grow green energy. And that’s why the Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory is saying that renewable portfolio standards enacted by at least half the states is responsible for 60 percent of non-hydro renewable sources. Those green standards vary by state but generally require utilities to offer a certain percent […]
