Costa Rica Has Been Thriving On 100% Renewable Energy For 113 Days (And Counting!)

Costa Rica will likely match the record it set last year when it ran completely on renewable energy sources for 285 days if it continues to thrive on the planets natural energy resources. 



If this incredible feat is accomplished, the South American country will yet again prove that fossil fuels are no longer necessary to keep the  meter's ticking.


In a report by TreeHugger, Costa Rica has been relying on hydropower, solar, wind, biomass, and geothermal energy sourcesable to surpass 113 days running completely on renewable energy. The nation’s large river network and heavy tropical rainfalls allow it to be more equipped than other countries to thrive on clean energy.



Over the next five years, Costa Rica will try to free itself entirely from fossil fuels. Considering that the country has invested vast sums of money in geothermal energy projects and that it is close to running on 100% renewable energy, it is likely to meet its goal – a lot sooner than planned.



 
This is not the first time Costa Rica has shown its commitment to the environment and wildlife. Costa Rica closed the last of its zoos and freed all captive animals in 2013.
