Renewables Toppled Coal in US Energy Consumption in 2019, EIA Says

The U.S. got more energy from renewables in 2019 than it did from coal, a year sooner than that same milestone is expected for the electricity sector on its own, according to the Energy Information Administration.

Prior to 2019, the last year that the country got more total energy from renewables than coal was 1885, when wood was the main renewable resource on offer.

Wisconsin Has 150MW of Solar. Alliant Just Bought 675MW More

Wisconsin utility Alliant Energy will spend $900 million buying 675 megawatts of utility-scale solar projects as it moves to replace uneconomic coal-fired plants with renewables. Alliant, which serves about 1 million customers in the Midwestern states of Wisconsin and Iowa, currently relies on renewables for about 20 percent of its generation capacity, largely wind power in Iowa, with twice as much coming from natural gas plants. On Tuesday Alliant said it will "acquire" six large-scale solar projects in Wisconsin from developers NextEra Energy Resources, Ranger Power, and Savion.
