Costa Rica has just hit its 122nd day straight with its electrical grid powered only by renewable energy.
The Latin American country hopes to achieve their goal of going a year without fossil fuels as well as beating last year’s record of 285 environmentally-friendly days.
Last year’s dependency on hydroelectricity, wind, solar, and geothermal energy accounted for 99% of the nation’s power.
Since the cost of energy dropped by 12% for the country’s residents, government officials hope to go even farther and become carbon neutral in five years.
