Wind Energy Outranks Traditional Energy Resources

Renewable energy set a major milestone at the end of March when wind power was the second-highest source of electricity in the U.S. for the first time since the Energy Information Administration began gathering the data.

On March 29, wind turbines generated over 2,000 gigawatt-hours of electricity, outshining electricity generation by nuclear and coal resources. It trailed natural gas, which was the most relied-on energy source that day.
