    At this point, California. The U.S. Department of Energy keeps track of the renewable portfolio standards of every state that has one. (A renewable portfolio standard, or RPS, is a state policy that requires electricity providers to obtain a minimum percentage of their power from renewable energy resources by a certain date. Currently there are 24 states plus the District of Columbia that have RPS policies in place.) California is the state with the most ambitious RPS goal: deriving 20% of its energy from renewable sources by 2010, and one-third of its energy from renewable sources by 2030. With the recent burst of clean-energy investment that occurred in the state, it looks like it will make both goals.
