Thor's hammer and the fight against fossil fuels

As energy consumers, we’re on the front lines of an important battle. Until recently, we didn’t have much say in where we got the electricity we need to power our lives, or how much we paid for this privilege. Our energy choices were dictated to us from the outside, and we either had to be willing participants in the system or…live off the grid.

Power Industry

Why we need to electrify everything

What does it take to get fossil fuels out of our lives? A big part of the answer is “the electrification of everything”. No, it’s not just industry jargon—it’s a key concept worth understanding, as it's playing a key role in our transition to a society powered by clean, renewable energy.

Wind surpasses hydro

    Wind surpassed hydropower energy as the biggest source of renewable electricity here in the U.S. thanks to a tripling of wind capacity since 2008.1 You may be wondering where are all these wind turbines going up? Well, the top 3 states are Texas, Iowa, and Oklahoma.1So how much power are we actually talking about here? Well, wind now has the capacity to power over 24 million American homes.2 And with wind and solar adding capacity faster than fossil fuels the power industry3 is undergoing a major and profound transformation.

Power Industry

The power industry is changing

    In the power sector, utilities are shifting to clean energy because the economic case is so compelling, and the trends are clear: Over the last five years in the US, the fossil fuel industry has retired more electricity generating capacity than they’ve added—which means they’re closing more power plants than they’re opening. This has resulted in a removal of about 20 gigawatts worth of electricity from fossil fuel sources (that’s about 2% of our total

Power Industry

Solar industry growth

      Today we're going over some exciting numbers from the solar industry. How fast exactly is the industry growing? Well this is the fourth consecutive year that solar industry jobs grew by 20% or more. In comparison, last year, jobs in the U.S. economy grew by only 1.5%.2 So the U.S. solar industry is booming and it now employs more workers than natural gas and more than double the number of workers in the coal industry.3
