Rounded to the nearest percent, solar provided zero percent of US electricity in 2014
Energy Information Administration sent this tweet a few days ago:
How much of the total electricity generated in 2014 was from wind and solar?
Let’s do some math –
In 2014, renewable sources provided 13% of electricity in the U.S.
Of this renewable portion, 34% came from slice-and-dicers with 3% coming from wing-toasters.
Here are the results:
- 0% – solar – 3% of 13% = 0.39%, rounds to zero
- 4% – wind – 34% of 13% = 4.42%
Here is a closeup of the graphic:
