Wind to Surpass Hydro as No. 1 US Renewable Power Source in 2019

Wind power is on track to surpass hydropower as the U.S. grid’s largest source of renewable electricity in 2019, according to Energy Information Administration data.

Hydro had a century-long head start, and plants like the 2,000-megawatt Hoover Dam and 6,800-megawatt Grand Coulee Dam still outsize any other generating stations. However, the country has added virtually no new hydro capacity over the last 20 years, due to the difficulty of siting and building new plants in a system of modern environmental protections, while the steady opening of new wind farms changed the playing field.
