    Wind And Solar Taking Over

    U.S. Renewables Produce More Electricity Than Coal During First Two Months Of 2020 As Solar Grows 32% And Wind 20%; Renewables Also Outpace Nuclear Power In February And Provide More Than 21% Of Nation’s Electricity

    Ken Bossong, April 27, 2020 (Sun Day)

    Renewable energy sources (i.e., biomass, geothermal, hydropower, solar, wind) produced 10.6% more electricity than coal during the first two months of 2020 and also topped nuclear power in February…During the first two months of this year, solar-generated electricity expanded by 32.0% (compared to the same period in 2019) and provided almost 2.3% of the nation’s total while wind grew by 19.8% and accounted for over 8.7% of total generation…[Together, they] accounted for a bit more than 11.0% of total U.S. electrical production.

    Combined with hydropower, biomass, and geothermal, renewables provided 20.3% of total electrical output…EIA’s data were even more dramatic for just the month of February when solar ballooned by 40.3% as wind expanded by 27.1%. Hydropower also experienced strong growth, increasing its output by 14.9% compared to a year earlier. The mix of all renewables provided 21.4% of the nation’s total electricity for the month. Moreover, renewables produced 21.9% more electricity than coal whose output was 30.0% lower than a year earlier. They also outperformed nuclear power by 3.6%...” click here for more
