ABSTRACT
The author comments on U.S. President Barack Obama's pre-election promises which was to reduce the country's dependence on foreign oil by increasing use of renewable energy to generate electricity. The author notes that Obama's goal is to increase wind, solar, and geothermal energy production from its current 1% level to 10% by the end of his first term in office. The author believes that there is no reason why renewable energy sources cannot supply a significant percentage of the electricity that Americans use. To fully embrace renewable energy, the author stresses that the electric grid will need to go through a major metamorphosis.
