Wind and solar power beat coal for electricity production


All of those wind farms in Oklahoma helped generate more electricity than coal for the first time ever in the U.S. according to new federal information.

E&E News recently reported coal lost out to wind and solar power. Together, the two renewable energy sources produced a combined 252 terawatt-hours in the first five months of this year, more than the 249 TWh of power from coal according to the U.S. Energy Information Administration.

Some see it is a continuing decline of coal use in the U.S.
