The article offers information on the growing debate over whether the U.S. should have a federal standard on renewable energy. It is stated that 21 states of the U.S. already have renewable portfolio standards and two more states including Florida and Oregon are considering them which raises the need for a federal standard on renewable energy. Jeff Deyette, a Union of Concerned Scientists (UCS) energy analyst, states that renewable energy provides benefits for all consumers, and the country needs a national policy which will spread those benefits out to everybody.
