Wind & Solar = 77% Of New US Electricity Generating Capacity In November

http://cleantechnica.com/2014/12/23/wind-solar-account-70-new-us-generating-capacity-november/

The United States Federal Energy Regulatory Commission’s (FERC) Office of Energy Projects released its monthly “Energy Infrastructure Update” on Tuesday, and the big winners from the month of November seem to be wind and solar, which combined added up to over 70% of all new electrical generating capacity placed into service during the month. If you add in our estimate for non-utility-scale solar, the market share of solar and wind rises to 77%.

4. Too bad natural gas is so high, but REALLY GOOD to see coal way down on the chart!

As individual generating technologies, natural gas will walk away the winner this year — of that there is no doubt. As can be seen in the chart and table below, natural gas has already installed 5,513 MW so far this year, while wind and solar have only reached 2,525 MW and 3,679 MW (including our non-FERC estimate).



Thanks for posting, graham!!
