New York Times: How the United States generated electricity from 2001 to 2017
NADJA POPOVICH writes in a New York Times article published late last year, they have researched how each State in the US has generated electricity for the past 16 years.
“We charted every state’s electricity generation mix between 2001 and 2017 using data from the United States Energy Information Administration.”
These charts demonstrate the potential for wind and solar to take over the energy landscape as they become more economical, in a similar fashion to how natural gas has overtaken the coal industry in many states. States like California and Hawaii are leading the pack in solar while northern states like Iowa and Idaho are leading the way in wind! Very interesting breakdown.
