Abstract

Dangerous carbon emissions have clearly shown their negative effects in the modern world. This has propelled researchers to develop sustainable technology to reduce these harmful toxins that pollute the earth. These innovative technologies have revealed alternative, renewable ways to produce electricity. Massachusetts however, along with the rest of the world, continues to rely on fossil fuels for power. The reconstruction of the Massachusetts energy infrastructure would be costly and time consuming, but necessary. This proposal is a statistical analysis of the sustainable sources of energy available to Massachusetts and produces an optimal usage of these sources in order to significantly decrease the amount of fossil fuels burned for electrical production.
