I would say it's because electrolysis of aluminium requires a lot of energy, so it needs to be near a power station. Renewable energy because it's better for the environment (fewer fossil fuels burnt, etc.)

Which textbook is it from?

That says you can download the answers. Why don't you try that? Then you can actually check your work.
