The following map was the headline graphic to our 2009 report, Energy Self-Reliant States, the report that inspired this blog. I re-created the map for web viewing, so it’s now even easier to share how each state can meet its electricity consumption with in-state renewable energy resources.
The renewable resources considered include on- and off-shore wind, rooftop solar PV, hydro, combined heat and power, and high-temperature geothermal. Read the Energy Self-Reliant States report for more details.
