We all know that transitioning to renewable energy is essential to the health of our environment. First, it will reduce greenhouse gas pollution, keeping our climate more stable. Second, technologies like solar and wind also keep our air and water cleaner than fossil fuels. Fortunately, in Alaska renewable energy will also lower our energy bills. 

One of the best ways we can increase the use of renewable energy in Alaska is by requiring our electric utilities to generate more and more of their power from renewable sources. This is often called a renewable portfolio standard (RPS). RPS bills have been introduced in the Senate by Senator Tobin (D) and in the House by Representative Sumner (R). SB 101 and HB 121 require utilities to produce a minimum of 25% of their power from renewable sources by 2027 and 80% by 2040.
