a state-level regulation dictating the proportion of energy to be produced by renewable energy sources over a specified period of time

Pros

Creates a legal requirement that drives investment in renewable energy

Cons

Renewable energy requirements are typically far below 100% of energy produced

Real Talk

The state RPS is a clear place to focus change efforts. Reaching the 100% renewable energy goal will only be possible when it's the law.
