I’ve been a booster of renewable energy for years and years. I can remember when readers would taunt me that only one percent of U.S. electricity came from non-hydro renewables.
So here we are in 2017 and this March, for the first time, wind and solar accounted for ten percent of U.S. electricity production.
In Iowa, 37 percent of the electricity comes from wind alone all year around.
The federal government isn’t the only player here, and anyway, large parts of it, such as the Pentagon, continue to favor renewables.
