While the OFFICE of President remains in highest regard at NewEnergyNews, this administration's position on climate change makes it impossible to regard THIS president with respect. Below is the NewEnergyNews theme song until 2020.

The challenge now: To make every day Earth Day.

    New Energy Bigger Than Nuclear Or Coal

    As Trump Administration Considers Bailouts Of Uneconomic Nuclear And Coal Plants; EIA & FERC Data Show Renewables Providing More Electricity Than Nuclear In 27 U.S. States And More Than Coal In A Third

    August 1, 2018 (Sun Day Campaign)

    “…[New Energy is] now providing more electricity than nuclear power in over half the states and more electricity than coal in a third…And the numbers continue to shift in favor of renewable sources, particularly as falling renewable energy prices and declining electricity demand make nuclear and coal ever-more uneconomic…[Nationwide, according to FERC, New Energy now accounts] for 20.66% of the total available installed generating capacity. That is more than double the generating capacity of the nation's nuclear power plants (9.12%) and is rapidly approaching the capacity of the nation's coal plants (23.04%)…

    …[P]roposed generation additions and retirements over the next three years could result in a net loss of an additional 15,898-MW of coal capacity and an increase of just 756-MW of nuclear capacity…while utility-scale renewable sources are projected to mushroom with 156,981-MW of new capacity -- primarily from wind (90,981-MW) and solar (52,216-MW)…And the potential growth in solar does not include distributed, small-scale PV systems (e.g., rooftop solar) which could account for an additional 30% or more in solar capacity…[G]enerating "capacity" is not the same as actual electrical "generation" because nuclear and coal typically have higher capacity factors than most renewable sources…[but the] most recent EIA data show renewables (including distributed solar) providing 20.17% of the nation's electrical generation during the first five months of 2018 compared to 20.14% from nuclear power…[and during the two most recent months reflected in EIA's data] renewables provided 10.6% more electricity than did nuclear power…” click here for more
