Every US state has a renewable energy goal, some are higher than others. The state with the highest is Maine, which aims to be using 40% renewable energy by 2017. The second is California, which aims to be 33% by 2020. Third place is a three way tie between Illinois, Minnesota, and Oregon.
Today, an impressive 36 states have some kind of renewable or alternative energy standard intended to increase their reliance on renewable energy sources. Though some states have much stronger standards than others; for instance, the standard for Texas only requires that the state get 5% of its energy from renewable sources by the year 2015, while Montana’s standard would use renewables to meet 15% of demand by the same year. Still, the number of states that have adopted renewable energy goals during the past few years is truly impressive. Though a few states have standards which date back to the ’80s or ’90s, most state renewable energy goals were adopted only the past five years or so.
