The Governor of Rhode Island, Jenna Raymondo, signed an executive order aimed primarily at making the
state's renewable energy sources provide all electricity by 2030.
With this order issued from the state, Rhode Island joins a few other US states that set a serious target for clean energy at 100%, including That is the
state of Hawaii, California, New Mexico, Maine, New York, Washington, and Virginia, according to Environment America, an environmental association that works to urge the country to produce all electricity needs
American consumers are expected to increase demand for clean and renewable energy, such as solar, wind, and electricity from waterfalls, coal, and nuclear energy, to become the second-largest source
of electricity generation in the United States in 2021.
Natural gas is also expected to remain the main fuel for power plants in the United States of America for many years after it surpassed coal in 2016.
However, the share of gas in the electricity generation mix is expected to decline in 2020 and 2021 as the share of renewables increases.
