Combined, they grew by 13.6% and accounted for more than one-eighth (12.8%) of U.S. electrical generation…[Hydropower was down by 7.5%, biomass was down 3.6%, and geothermal was down 1.5%, but] Non-hydro renewable generation still increased by 11.2% during the first three months of 2021 compared to the same period in 2020…

    Renewables' share of the nation's electrical generation for the first quarter was 21.6% - up from 21.2% a year earlier…[E]lectrical generation by natural gas during the quarter fell by 10.5% [and from a 39.2% of total generation to a 34.3% share] and by 14.8% in March alone…[Coal use grew] 34.8% compared to the first quarter of 2020…[and] exceeded that of all renewable sources combined by 7.4%...[But renewables] eclipsed coal's output in March] by 29.6%...” click here for more
