Renewables supply more electricity than nuclear sources for second month in a row

Backers of green power had something to crow about with the release of the latest data on eco-energy production in this U.S. Electricity made from renewable sources supplied 11.6% of all the electricity consumed in the U.S. in May (the most recent data available). This marks the second month in a row that renewables (mostly hydropower, but also wind, solar, biofuel, biomass and geothermal) cranked out more juice than the nation’s roughly 102 commercial nuclear reactors. The analysis of the August release of the Energy Information Administration’s “Monthly Energy Review”* was done by the SUN DAY Campaign.
