This Greek island will be first in the Mediterranean powered only by renewables

The small Greek island of Tilos has long had a costly power system that gets its energy from a diesel power station 42 miles away. Now Tilos has constructed a new system powered entirely by wind and solar, making it the first island in the Mediterranean to power itself entirely with renewable energy. The switch is practical as well as sustainable. The old power system would be strained in the summer months when the tourists arrived, but now that’s no longer a problem.
