List of U.S. states by electricity production from renewable sources

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Jump to: navigation, search
Sources of electricity generated in the United States. Data is from U.S. EIA Electric Power Annual 2012.

The information used to calculate values is from the Electric Power Monthly, February 2012, 2013 and 2014 published by the U.S. Energy Information Administration. Renewable generation does not include amounts for 'rooftop solar'. Only utility scale generation from solar sources is included.
