In a first for any month, renewables from solar, wind, and hydropower generated more electricity than coal on every day in April 2020, according to new data from the U.S. Energy Information Administration (EIA). ...Utility-scale solar, wind and hydro collectively produced more than coal-fired generation, and has continued for at least 40 straight days from Mar 25- May 3,the EIA’s Hourly Electric Grid Monitor shows. These figures are even more remarkable when compared to renewables in 2019, when they only beat coal on 38 days all year. The transition away from coal for electricity generation has accelerated in 2020 due to a number of factors, particularly low gas prices, warmer weather, a significant amount of new renewable capacity connecting to the grid late last year, and more recently, lower power demand from the economic slowdown because of the coronavirus.
