USA - Wind Power Eclipsed Coal and Nuclear

Arno Froese

Wind power in the United States reached a new milestone. 

On March 29, wind turbines produced more electricity than coal and nuclear, the U.S. Energy Information Administration, an agency that collects energy statistics for the government, says.

In the past, wind-powered electricity has gone beyond coal and nuclear on separate days, but this was the first time wind surpassed both on the same day. Natural gas is still the largest source of electricity generation in the country. 

The EIA notes that in the spring and fall months, nuclear and coal generators reduce their output because demand tends to be lower, which could contribute to why wind turbines produced more electricity that day.

Arno's Commentary

Although quite unexpected, this is supported by facts and figures. With China leading the way, followed by the European Union and the United States, the growth of wind power is relatively easy to predict; particularly in view of the alarmists, who conclude that the world is coming to an end because of man’s excessive use of non-renewable energy.

A recent article in the European media emphasized the decrease of winds during certain months; subsequently, the increase of coal, oil, and natural gas use to make up capacity. 

Here we are reminded of the words of Psalm 135:7: “He causeth the vapours to ascend from the ends of the earth; he maketh lightnings for the rain; he bringeth the wind out of his treasuries.”
