these findings are applicable to all continents.
1-Renewable energy actually reduces electricity prices for businesses and consumers.
2-Infrastructure to connect renewable energy is a great investment.
3-Integrating variable renewable resources is easier and cheaper than we thought.
4-The world has far more than enough renewable energy resources to meet its entire electric demand.

America has far more than enough renewable energy resources to meet its entire electric demand. World-class renewable resources from wind in the Great Plains to solar in the Southwest could power the whole country more than a dozen times over. The fuel for these power plants, wind and sunlight, are unlimited and will always be free.
