More States Commit to Carbon-Free Electricity Goals

The Energy Information Administration (EIA) reports that as of the end of 2021, 31 states had renewable portfolio standards (RPS) or clean energy standards (CES) — requirements that electricity be generated by renewable resources or carbon-free technologies. Some states are relying on nuclear energy or natural gas fitted with carbon-capture sequestration technology to reach their clean energy goals.

Ohio currently has an 8.5% alternative energy resource standard that is to be achieved by 2026. 2/1/2022
