Evolution of US Solar Power, Wind Power, & Fossil Fuels from 2010–2020

Going into 2021, CleanTechnica is taking a look at electricity generation changes over the past decade. We have been publishing monthly US power capacity reports and monthly US electricity generation reports for a long time. However, we hadn't previously gone all the way back to 2010 to examine changes in electricity generation across the whole decade. Part of the reason for that is that the US Energy Information Administration (which supplies much of our data) didn't start producing estimates for small-scale solar generation until 2014. For this new report, small-scale solar electricity generation and market share in the years 2010–2013 are CleanTechnica estimates rather than EIA estimates.
