In a first, renewables generated more electricity in the U.S. than coal for a month | ECO EVOLUTION TODAY | Scoop.it
The renewable energy sector in the United States generated more energy than coal-fired plants for the month of April, according to data released by the U.S. Energy Information Administration (EIA). That's the first time this has happened, and according to projections from the Institute for Energy Economics and Financial Analysis (IEEFA), it may have happened again in May. Renewables include hydroelectricity, biomass, wind, solar and geothermal.
