Over 100 Cities Worldwide Now Powered Primarily by Renewable Energy

This article talks about the wave of renewable energy throughout the world. Cities have taken the lead and over 100 receive all their energy from renewables, although some take credit for biomass burning, which is NOT a clean energy source.

Burlington, Vermont, gets 100 percent of its power from renewable energy. As the price of renewable energy drops, more cities are cutting the cord with fossil fuel-based electricity.

A new report released Tuesday by the environmental group CDP finds that more than 100 citiesworldwide now get the majority of their power—70 percent or more—from renewables. That’s up from 42 in 2015, when countries pledged to cut greenhouse gas emissions in the Paris climate agreement.
