Switzerland votes to ban nuclear power and invest in renewable energy

Switzerland opts for
renewable energy,
bans nuclear power.
Switzerland just passed a new energy law that promotes renewable energy and bans nuclear power plants. 

The landmark vote brings the nation closer to meeting its goal of generating 4,400 gigawatt-hours (GWh) of renewable energy by 2020, and 11,400 GWh by 2035.

 Over the weekend, approximately 42% of the population turned up to vote in the national referendum, which marks the eighth time in recent history Swiss citizens have voted on the issue.
