Solar Now Third Largest Renewable Source of Electricity in US

In addition, nuclear generators are discussing the potential retirements of several more. Against the planned retirement of 7,274 MW of capacity, four new reactors are in construction, totaling 4,468 MW. The completion of these reactors is in doubt, however, due to billions of dollars in cost overruns and the bankruptcy of designer-builder Westinghouse. If all reactors being built are ultimately completed, total nuclear generating capacity will decline by at least 2,806 MW (3 percent) by 2025, planned additions against planned retirements. If these projects are cancelled, nuclear capacity will decline by at least 7,274 MW (7.2 percent) from 2017, accounting for roughly 57,000 TMWh/year of generation. On the other hand, almost all renewable energy sources are experiencing strong growth rates . Comparing the first four months of 2017 to the same period in 2016, solar has gro...
