Portugal produced enough renewable energy in March for whole country

As the US dithers, other countries are moving ahead with renewable energy. Portugal just produced enough renewable energy last month to power the entire country. Way to go! Obrigada!

The group says renewable power produced in March was equal to 103.6 percent of electrical demand on mainland Portugal. (Portugal also includes several islands, which have separate energy systems.)
Fifty-five percent of that energy was produced through hydro power, while 42 percent came from wind. The country still used fossil fuels to balance out supply and demand.
