Costa Rica goes 75 days powering itself using only renewable energy

Costa-Rica-map

I found out the other day that Costa Rica went a record 75 days on 100% renewable energy. No fossil fuels have been burn’t since December 2014. They achieved this due to heavy rainfall, which powered four hydroelectric plants in the first three months of the year. Costa Rica might be a small country, approximately 4.8 million people but this is a huge step forward.
