Clean Energy Calculator
Test a scenario for increasing the use of solar, wind, or electric cars to cut America???s reliance on fossil fuels

If every American drove an electric car, would it cut down on our gas consumption enough to stop importing oil? How many coal-powered plants must be shuttered to significantly slash greenhouse gas emissions? Ever wonder what percentage of U.S. households need to install solar panels to make a dent in our use of coal as an energy source? To provide some answers, we’ve built a set of energy calculators to project how the use of solar, wind, coal, and electric cars will evolve over the course of a decade, cutting our reliance on fossil fuels. To test a scenario, simply adjust the slider below.
