State Energy Self-Reliance Potential

| Written by John Farrell | No Comments | Updated on May 3, 2011 The content that follows was originally published on the Institute for Local Self-Reliance website at http://www.ilsr.org/state-energy-self-reliance-potential/

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.
