State-by-State Roadmap to Renewables

What would it take to convert a city, a state, or even the whole U.S., to 100 percent renewable energy?

 

In 2011, Stanford professor Mark Jacobsen envisioned what that might require for New York state. Now he’s extended his analysis to all 50 U.S. states, laying a roadmap to how each could meet 100 percent of their energy needs through renewable sources by 2050.

 

Locally, Missouri would use wind, water, and solar to move to 100 percent renewables. The state would avoid $9.3 billion in health care costs if we switch to more clean energy. And the annual cost savings per person in 2050 would be $5,200.

Check out the very easy-to-use roadmap.
