Most states have Renewable Portfolio Standards

Renewable portfolio standards (RPS) are policies designed to increase electricity generation from renewable resources, including wind, solar, geothermal, and biomass. While there is no National-level renewable portfolio standard, 30 States and the District of Columbia had enforceable renewable portfolio standards (RPS) or other mandated renewable capacity policies, as of January 2012. In addition, seven States had voluntary goals for renewable generation.
