Thanks to the need for low power and the US’s high wind power output, the output of renewable-energy power in the US has exceeded that of coal-fired thermal power for the first time ever in April.

The intensified deployment in renewable energy in the U.S. in recent years has begun to bear fruit. In April, the total output of hydraulic power, solar power, and wind power approached 68.5 million megawatt/h, which is higher than the 60 million megawatt/h of coal-fired power.

This has allowed renewable energy power to become the US’s second largest source of power supply, next to natural gas-fired thermal power, according to the U.S. Energy Information Administration (EIA).
