first_img FacebookTwitterLinkedInEmailPrint分享Greentech Media:It was 1997, and stakeholders were working hard to help craft the first renewable energy standard in the State of Massachusetts, which ultimately passed as part of an electric utility restructuring act. At that time, the notion that Massachusetts would be one of the top solar states in the country was almost laughable, recalls Rob Sargent, who currently leads the energy program at Environment America. Today, renewable energy is taking off in virtually every state in the nation.A new report and interactive map released this week by Environment America takes stock of U.S. clean energy progress to date. It finds that leadership is no longer concentrated in select parts of the country, but that it is distributed across states with varying economic and democratic makeups.The Renewables on the Rise report highlights how much has changed in a relatively short period of time, which can be easy to forget. Today, the U.S. produces nearly six times as much renewable electricity from the sun and the wind as it did in 2008, and nine states now get more than 20 percent of their electricity from renewables.Last year, the U.S. produced a record amount of solar power, generating 39 times more solar power than a decade ago. In 2008, solar produced 0.05 percent of electricity in the U.S. But by the end of 2017, solar generation reached more than 2 percent of the electricity mix — enough to power 7 million average American homes.Wind has also seen dramatic growth over the last decade. From 2008 through 2017, American wind energy generation grew nearly fivefold. Last year, wind turbines produced 6.9 percent of America’s electricity, enough to power nearly 24 million homes. And the forecast shows even more growth as America’s offshore wind industry begins to take off.Meanwhile, the average American uses nearly 8 percent less energy today than a decade ago, thanks in large part to energy efficiency improvements.More: No Longer a Novelty, Clean Energy Technologies Boom All Across the U.S. Report highlights spread of renewable energy across U.S.last_img read more

first_imgDodgers right-hander Joe Kelly threw one fastball behind Alex Bregman and another above the head of Carlos Correa in the sixth inning of Tuesday night’s 2017 World Series rematch against the Houston Astros.Kelly followed up the inside pitches with a strikeout of Correa to end the frame. He mocked Correa as he walked off the mound and both benches cleared. After the game, Astros manager Dusty Baker said Kelly yelled, “Nice swing, b—!” at Correa following the K. The teams have plenty of bad blood after the Astros were found to have cheated during their championship victory over the Dodgers three years ago.This one nearly decapitated Carlos Correa.pic.twitter.com/8WmLOywKCw— Sporting News MLB (@sn_mlb) July 29, 2020Joe Kelly mocks Correa after striking him out and the benches clear.pic.twitter.com/KP2P2qHKFY— Sporting News MLB (@sn_mlb) July 29, 2020MORE: Astros cheating scandal timelineKelly is known for his poor command but also his hot head, having been involved in MLB tussles before. He was not on the Dodgers in 2017, but he did play for the Red Sox the next season, when Boston beat the Astros in the ALCS.During spring training, several Dodgers players spoke out about the Astros after MLB’s investigation detailed Houston’s sign-stealing schemes. “I mean, these guys were cheating for three years,” Cody Bellinger said. “I think what people don’t realize is (Jose) Altuve stole an MVP from (Aaron) Judge in ’17. Everyone knows they stole the ring from us.”No one was ejected from the sixth inning back-and-forth.last_img read more
