Mississippi
MississippiMississippi is one of only three states without a renewable portfolio standard, net metering policy, or interconnection standards.1 As such, it is annually among the states that generate the least amount of renewable energy.

This is not for lack of potential. In fact, if hydropower generation capabilities were added to existing locks and dams in Mississippi, they would generate up to 271 megawatts of renewable energy.2

And according to the National Renewable Energy Laboratory, the state ranks 11th in the U.S. in biopower potential and has the ability to develop a small offshore wind industry.3

But with such a lack of pro-renewable policies, it’s hard to see how the state will attract the investment necessary to build those industries.
