[Infographic] A Timeline of Renewable Energy in the U.S.

Today, more than ever before in U.S. history, renewable energy has proven capable of powering not just the U.S., but the entire world too! A decade ago, it would have been unrealistic to think renewable energy could surpass fossil fuels, but in 2019, renewable energy supplied more power to America’s grid than coal.

Because renewable energy resources are virtually inexhaustible, it has shown to be a true competitor to traditional energy sources such as petroleum, coal, and natural gas. Thanks largely to government requirements and tax incentives, renewable energy sources more than doubled between 2008 to 2018, but renewable energy has a long and storied history. Check out our renewable energy infographic to see a few watershed moments in U.S. history.
