2022-05-20 EIA: Solar, Wind To Be Larger Sources

US EIA expects solar and wind to be larger sources of US electricity generation this summer.

2022-03-31 Solar Tariffs 50% Or More! Comment on FB group (look at the bar graph) This article said “…Nearly 40% year-over-year.” That’s good but not good enough. That needs to be more than 100% year-over-year. The whole solar industry depends on the wafer fabrication facilities, which have grown but demand is still exceeding the supply. The US needs a large

2021-12-24 Small Scale Solar: Calif Leads with 10+ GW

California leads with more than 10 GW, many times that of second place. Texas and Florida are adding a lot more. The incentives are important! They don’t say, but I assume that this includes ‘behind the meter’ rooftop solar.

2021-10-19 Renewables Leading Source US Electricity By 2030 – EIA

According to the EIA, renewables will be the leading source of US electricity by 2030. The EIA says 42%, but they have been too conservative in their estimates in the past. We (the whole world) must be much farther away from fossil fuels by 2030, especially coal. Coal power plants must be gone as soon

2021-08-07 Electricity Generated By State

Article graphs EIA reports on electricity generated by state. “Small scale solar” is supposed to include rooftop solar. California comes out far ahead with solar. Texas is far ahead with wind. What must be done is get those many lagging states to convert away from coal and to renewables. Some states have very little wind

2021-04-20 US Power Sector Halfway To Zero

Power sector is halfway compared to the EIA estimates of 2005.


2021-04-04 Conventional Power Can’t Compete With Renewables Plus Storage

Comment from this YouTube video When it comes to generating power, there is only one factor that counts: cost per kWh. Renewables plus storage cost less than any conventional power and the cost is still going down. Those fossil fuel and nuclear power plants are unable to lower their costs and are being (and will

2021-02-10 EIA Short Term Energy Outlooks

A quote from << EIA forecasts that planned additions to U.S. wind and solar generating capacity in 2021 and 2022 will contribute to increasing electricity generation from those sources. EIA estimates that the U.S. electric power sector added 17.5 gigawatts (GW) of new wind capacity in 2020. EIA expects 15.3 GW of wind capacity
