While the federal government has a certain authority regulating solar and renewable energy initiatives, much of the work is done on the state level. To this end, each state has its own renewable energy statistics. Much of these statistics are based on funding, climate, and overall weather conditions.
California produces the most geothermal wind and solar power in the United States. In fact, California products more solar and wind power than all other states combined! California is home to the largest solar energy facility in the world, S.E.G.S.
If you’re wondering how the East Coast utilizes renewable energy, consider Niagra Falls. Niagara Falls produces 2,515 MW of power. Additionally, Rhode Island gets 97% of its electricity from natural gas sources, which is a truly remarkable statistic. In the southern United States, Texas produces more wind power than any other state. Don’t forget about coal. West Virginia gets 97.8% of its electricity from coal, and coal remains a major economic driver in that region. Similarly, 81.9% of Utah’s electricity comes from coal.
Statewide renewable energy statistics are almost always driven by the natural resources available to each specific region. States are beginning to realize the power in utilizing these resources, and renewable energy is slowly coming to the forefront of major economic, and environmental initiatives.
