State-by-state consumption numbers will vary due to interstate flows of electricity. THE TEN GREENEST STATES Maine is able to produce more wind energy than the rest of New England combined. #1 MAINE Because of Rhode Island's commitment to solar energy, jobs in the solar energy sector grew by 62% in 2013. #2 RHODE ISLAND While Idaho's main renewable energy source currently is hydroelectric, most of the state also sufficient #3 IDAHO geothermal energy resources for electricity production. Delaware's renewable portfolio standard requires electricity suppliers to generate 25% of electricity from renewable energy resources, with at least 3.5% from photovoltaics, by June 2025-May 2026. # 4 DELAWARE Hawaii's primary source of renewable energy is biomass, followed by solar and wind, respectively. #5 HAWAII In 2014, 73% of Oregon's net generated electricity was generated from hydroelectric plants and other renewable energy resources. #6 OREGON Despite 90% of Nevada's energy being imported, it is ranked second in the nation for geothermal energy potential. #7 NEVADA It is estimated by the National Renewable Energy Laboratory that 88% of South Dakota's land area is suitable for the development of wind power resources. #8 SQUTH DAKOTA Washington is the nation's hydroelectric leader, producing 30% of the U.S's hydro power. It also is home to the Grand Coulee Dam on the Columbia #9 WASHINGTON River, the largest single producer of hydroelectric power in the country. In 2013, 27% of lowa's energy was produced by wind power, and it was ranked third among all states in the production of non-hydroelectric renewable energy. #10 TOWA Sources: OLIVET NAZARENE UNIVERSITY FL, 40.1
