Water, Wind and Solar 

Portugal generated 70% of all of its electricity for the first three months of 2013 from hydropower, wind power and solar power.

A recent report from Stanford and Cornell says that NY State could generate 100% of its energy from renewables by 2030. And if NY State can do it - so can we! 

"We must be ambitious if we want to promote energy independence and curb global warming," said Robert Howarth, a Cornell University scientist and co-author of the study. [Yale 360]
