While the OFFICE of President remains in highest regard at NewEnergyNews, the administration's position on the climate crisis makes it impossible to regard THIS president with respect. Therefore, until November 2020, the NewEnergyNews theme song:

    2019’s New Energy Was Over 18% Of U.S. Power Generation

    EIA's 2019 Year-End Report: Electricity From Non-Hydro Renewables Increased By 8.5%, Provided 11.6% Of Total U.S. Production; Solar Expanded 14.9% - Wind Grew By 10.1%

    February 27, 2020 (Sun Day)

    “Renewable energy sources (i.e., biomass, geothermal, hydropower, solar, wind) accounted for 18.2% of net domestic electrical generation during 2019…A year earlier, renewables' share was 17.5%...[S]olar and wind both showed continued, strong growth, expanding faster than all other energy sources…Solar, including small-scale solar photovoltaic (PV) systems, grew 14.9% compared to 2018 and accounted for almost 2.6% of total electrical output. Small-scale solar (e.g., distributed rooftop systems) - which increased by 18.6% - provided nearly a third (32.7%) of total solar electrical generation. The growth rate of distributed solar was greater than that of any other energy source…U.S. wind-generated electricity increased by 10.1%, accounting for 7.2% of all electricity produced…

    …Combined, wind and solar accounted for almost a tenth (9.8%) of U.S. electrical generation through the end of December. In addition, biomass provided a bit more than 1.4% and geothermal contributed almost 0.4% (with the latter reflecting 0.3% growth)…In total, non-hydro renewable sources (i.e., biomass, geothermal, solar, wind) accounted for 11.6% of total U.S. electrical production during 2019 and grew by 8.5% compared to 2018…By comparison, nuclear-generated electricity increased by just 0.3% while that from coal plummeted by 15.7%...[Natural gas] grew by 7.7%...” click here for more
