The new scale of solar power and wind power will increased near 116GW in the United States by the end of 2020 2018-01-09

According to a report just released by the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission (FERC) on energy infrastructure, it is estimated that by the end of 2020, the U.S. public utility enterprises will have an additional 115,984MW of large-scale wind power and solar power capacity.

FERC said that by the end of 2020, the U.S. wind power and solar power generation will be doubled, with a current capacity of 115,520 MW.


Among the new installed capacity, wind power accounts for 72,526MW and solar power accounts for 43,528MW. In addition, 68MW of wind power and 2MW of solar power will be eliminated respectively. In the same period, coal will have a net decrease of 18,723MW and a net decrease of 2,342MW in nuclear power, as shown in the figure.

FERC believes that by the end of 2020, the proportion of US renewable energy power generation structure will increase from the current 19.91% to 26.57%.

FERC's data should not be interpreted purely as projections but a trend that "the rapid growth of solar, wind and natural gas and the relatively stable growth of small hydropower, biomass and geothermal energy While coal and nuclear power dropped sharply. "

On January 10, FERC will also consider Energy Secretary Rick Perry's proposal for subsidies for coal-fired power generation and nuclear power.
