Our energy comes from many sources, including coal, natural gas, nuclear and renewables.
As nonrenewable sources such as coal diminish due to market forces and consumer preference, the need for renewable energy sources grows.
Some U.S. states satisfy their growing renewable energy needs with wind, solar and hydropower.
Wind: Texas has the capacity to generate 18,500 megawatts hours of electricity through wind, and expects to add another 5,000 megawatts of wind generation capacity from facilities under construction.
Solar: California’s solar farms and small-scale solar power systems have 14,000 megawatts of solar power generating capacity.
Hydroelectric: Washington state hydroelectric power produces two-thirds of its net electricity.
