#RenewableEnergy should contribute a greater share of U.S. #electricity generation through 2022, reaching a 23% share, up from 20% in 2020. http://go.usa.gov/xGBjR

About 50 gigawatts of #solar and #wind capacity is scheduled to come online in the United States during the next 18 months, with 2022 as the first year that growth in utility solar capacity will outpace wind capacity growth.
