Not too long ago, idea that an entire country could get 100 percent of its electricity from renewable sources for over 2 months was unthinkable.

Well, one country just shattered that notion for the second time in two years.

Costa Rica’s electricity came from 100 percent clean, reliable renewable energy for 76 days between June and August this year.

As soon as a handful of new wind farms come online in the near future, it’s estimated that wind energy will provide more than 10 percent of Costa Rica’s electricity by the end of next year.

To learn more about the second edition of this amazing feat, watch the below ODN video reporting on another renewable energy milestone.
