American State to enact 25% renewable electricity standard

via The Agonist

Today marked a milestone in the pursuit of America's renewable energy policy, as I watched the Democratically-controlled Minnesota State Senate Committee on Energy, Utilities, Technology and Communications pass Senate File 4 moments ago, a bill which mandates about 25% of Minnesota's electricity will come from renewable sources by 2020, and the gradient of renewable energy will rise every few years until then. This will be America's most aggressive renewable electricity policy, once it passes the Legislature.
