    …[But] many of the new wind and solar power installations have been built by independent producers…Large scale utility companies, including many state and city owned enterprises, have been much slower to go green…[O]nly 10% of the companies had expanded their renewable-based power generation more quickly than their gas or coal fired capacity…[and] many continued to invest in fossil fuels, although at a lower rate…The overall conclusion from the analysis, though, is that utility companies are "hindering" the global transition to renewables…” click here for more
