Costa Rica clears milestone for clean energy

Friday, March 20, 2015

Costa Rica has achieved a major clean energy milestone, meeting 100 percent of its power demand with renewable energy for 75 straight days.

The state-owned power supplier says the country's zero-emission milestone was enabled thanks to heavy rainfalls at four hydroelectric power facilities, so there has been no need to burn fossil fuels to generate electricity.
