    New Energy Keeps Growing

    For First Three-Quarters Of 2020, Latest FERC Data Show: Renewables Are Sole Source Of New U.S. Generating Capacity In June, July, August, And September, And Almost Two-Thirds Of New Capacity Year-To-Date

    Ken Bossong, November 23, 2020 (Sun Day)

    “…[Federal Energy Regulatory Commission (FERC) data shows] renewable energy sources (i.e., biomass, geothermal, hydropower, solar, wind) have dominated new U.S. electrical generating capacity additions in the first nine months of 2020…[T]hey accounted for nearly two-thirds ( 64.1%) of the 16,886 MW of new utility-scale capacity added during the first three-quarters of this year…[N]atural gas accounted for 35.8% (6,039 MW) of the total, with very small contributions by coal (20 MW) and ‘other’ sources (5 MW) providing the balance. There have been no new capacity additions by nuclear power, oil, or geothermal energy since the beginning of the year…

    …[A]ll of the 2,976 MW of new generating capacity added throughout the summer (i.e., June, July, August, September) was provided by solar (1,484 MW), wind (1,468 MW), and hydropower (24 MW). In September alone, all new U.S. electrical generation capacity added was attributable to two new ‘units’ of wind (159 MW) and five units of solar (36 MW)…Renewable energy sources now account for 23.3% of the nation’s total available installed generating capacity and continue to expand their lead over coal (20.0%). The generating capacity of just wind and solar is now more than 13.3% of the nation’s total … and that does not include distributed (e.g., rooftop) solar…If these numbers hold, over the next three years, renewable energy generating capacity should account for comfortably more than a quarter of the nation's total available installed generating capacity…” click here for more
