Renewables Supply 15.6% of US Electricity in January, Solar Skyrockets 343%

This article is written so poorly it is embarassing. Over the last 15 years nuclear and wind have had a similar output. That is simply not possible. Wind has been adding incremental MW output over the past 3 or 4 years that substantially outstrips new nuclear output. 15, 10 hell 5 years ago nuclear's output was much greater than wind. It has only been recently that wind caught nuclear. $39.4B v $900M in subsidies. The PTC tax credit, loan guarantees amd ITC block grants in the US alone were substantially greater than $900M in subsidies. Look, I work in the wind industry. I don't believe nuclear is a sustainable energy solution, but if informatin is going to be shared by an entity with the words "News" in their name, get the story straight.
