Anyone who has visited Hawaii with any frequency has probably taken a shower with water warmed by a solar-powered water heater. Because of its combination of plentiful sunshine and high energy prices, Hawaii promotes and subsidizes this clean form of water heating more than any other state.
Concerns about dependence on foreign sources of oil, along with the environmental impacts of fossil fuel usage, have encouraged many nations from Germany to Japan to dramatically ramp up their production of renewable energy.
