Costa Rica proves an entire country can generate electricity from renewable sources
In 1983 when I visited Costa Rica to work in its La Selva reserve, the country was already famous as a leader in conservation. Today, Costa Rica is building a genuine green and blue economy. Since January this year the country produced 100 percent of its electricity from renewables. The country uses hydroelectric power plants, solar, biomass, and geothermal. Heavy rains this year have given a huge boost to hydroelectric plants.
