The Gem State is rich in renewable energy. There is plenty of hydroelectric capacity, tons of wind turbines, state-wide geothermal resources and even an above-average amount of sunshine. Idaho is one of the few states in which solar power has to compete with other renewables and not just fossil fuels. So far other renewables are winning hands down, with only a paltry amount of installed solar PV capacity.
