A report from the Georgetown Climate Center shows that a dramatic shift to clean energy is taking place across the U.S.
Between 2011 and 2014, installed wind energy capacity grew by more than 40 percent nationally, for example, while solar capacity grew by 577 percent nationally.
The 19 states profiled in the report, “State Leadership Driving the Shift to Clean Energy: State Progress and Success Stories,” are California, Colorado, Connecticut, Delaware, Louisiana, Maryland, Massachusetts, Michigan, Minnesota, Nevada, New Hampshire, New York, Oregon, Pennsylvania, Rhode Island, Tennessee, Vermont, Virginia, and Washington. The report updates a previous Georgetown Climate Center report released in December 2013. The profiles in the 2016 report are based on descriptions of state activity provided by state officials.
