Renewables produced more electricity than nuclear for the first five months of 2018

US Renewables Are Closing In on Nuclear Generation, GT, Renewables produced more electricity than nuclear for the first five months of 2018.  AUGUST 09, 2018

“..After decades of stalled nuclear plant development and the recent surge of increasingly cheap wind and solar deployments, the newcomers are pulling ahead. In the first five months of 2018, renewables produced 20.17 percent of U.S. electricity and nuclear produced 20.14 percent, according to Energy Information Administration data compiled by Ken Bossong of the Sun Day Campaign.

A similar record was hit in the first three months of 2017.

In the two most recent months included in the data set, April and May, renewables outproduced nuclear by more than 10 percent. …… Renewables out-generate nuclear in more than half of states, according to an analysis of EIA data by the Sun Day Campaign.

Sun Day has a very clear stake in this race: Its mission is to promote sustainable energy and help “phase out the use of nuclear power.”..
