80 by 2035

Greetings Peaksters

As many of you have heard, our prez has set a goal of having 80% of our electricity being generated from clean energy sources. This sounds pretty good to me. Of course the devil is in the details. First what qualifies as "clean"? Clearly not just wind solar and hydro. Ntual gas and clean coal get counted as partially clean.

Also it is interesting to compare this with the EIA's reference case, where abut 40% is "clean". But hey, you have to start somewhere.
