2025 GOAL: At least 50 percent of state’s power to be from alternative sources.

Gov. Sarah Palin has crossed swords with conservation groups over petroleum drilling, but she earned nothing but praise Friday after announcing the most ambitious renewable energy goals in the nation. At a news conference announcing her statewide energy plan, Palin called for 50 percent of Alaska’s power to be generated by renewable resources by 2025. Source

Governor Sarah Palin is working towards powering Alaska with 50% renewable energy by 2025, in the most ambitious push for green technology and energy independence in the nation.

Go, Sarah go!

Currently, 24% of Alaska’s electric power comes from renewable sources (mostly hydropower).

Palin’s plan encourages cooperation amongst Alaska’s various utilities, weaning rural villages off diesel fuel and onto renewable energy, developing wind farms, utilizing geothermal resources, and expanding hydropower efforts.

Once again Sarah Palin leads by example. Contrast this to B. Hussein Obama who is busy talking about change, giving interviews to foreign Muslim TV and throwing around presidential dictates.
