Wow only 6% windmills and solar and how many dollars did we put into that?
Check it out:
Ninety-four percent of the electricity generated in the United States in 2013 came from nuclear reactors, dams, and fossil fuels–including petroleum, natural gas, other gases, and coal–according to a new report from the U.S. government’s Energy Information Administration.
Only 0.2 percent of U.S. electricity during the year came from solar-power sources, and another 4.1 percent came from wind power.
In total, the United States generated a net of 4,058,209 million kilowatthours of electricity in 2013. That was up slightly—0.26 percent–from the 4,047,765 million KWH generated in 2012. But it remained less than 4,156,745 million KWH generated in 2007, which remains the peak year for U.S. electricity generation.
