Nearly 30 US states see renewables generate more power than either coal or nuclear coal      Nationwide, renewables accounted for 20.8% of US electrical generation during the first eight months of 2020, ahead of 19.4% from nuclear and 18.4% from coal, Energy Live News 30 Oct 20, 

These figures have been revealed in a SUN DAY Campaign analysis of newly-released data from the US Energy Information Administration (EIA), which shows utility-scale biomass, geothermal, hydropower, solar and wind plants provided more electricity than coal in 27 states and Washington, DC.  ……

The SUN DAY Campaign’s Executive Director Ken Bossong said: “Falling wind and solar costs, renewable portfolio standards, and ever-greater concerns about climate change, are driving a transition away from coal and nuclear power in a majority of the states.

“If current patterns continue – or even accelerate – it will not be many years more before coal and and nuclear are relegated to niche markets by the mix of renewable energy sources.”  https://www.energylivenews.com/2020/10/30/nearly-30-us-states-see-renewables-generate-more-power-than-either-coal-or-nuclear/Energy Live News,
