PJM Renewable Energy Doubles From 2005 to 2010

While a previous post documents the extraordinary growth in wind power within the PJM power pool, all renewable energy sources, including hydro, landfill gas, and biomass, provided 38 billion kilowatt-hours of power in 2010 or doubling the 2005 total of 19 billion kilowatt-hours.

Of the total 19 billion kilowatt-hours of increased renewable energy, wind power accounted for about 10.5 billion.

Renewable energy from all sources within the PJM power pool supplied enough power for 3.8 million homes in 2010.

Renewable energy is now an important part of keeping our lights on and it continues to grow rapidly.
