Spanish Island to be Powered by 100% Renewable Energy

A tiny Spanish island with just 10,000 residents is about to do something amazing. El Hierro, the smallest of the Canary Islands, plans to completely sever ties with the traditional power grid and move entirely to renewable energy.

El Hierro already has a water turbine that generates electricity, and the added wind power will enable the island to go totally off-grid.
