Super excited to finally publish this epic interactive map & article about how the US generates electricity
Map of solar power installations >1MW. Don't think regional policies matter? Look at North Carolina. From:
This is my fave chart from the piece: US electricity capacity being built and retired over time
This is thing of genuine beauty and wonder... Map showing how US generates electricity, by &
How The US Generates Electricity: Individual states have broad power to influence electricity generation w/n borders
🎉 It's here! Our analysis of how the US generates electricity. Probably my most ambitious #map yet…#ddj
This is a great resource to understand the state of US electricity: detailed, insightful and nuanced.
Superb, detailed, fascinating map about how the US generates electricity: #Envhist
This is every single power plant in the US* *OK, not quite. We missed out the really tiny ones.
Here's an awesome interactive map of U.S. electricity
Interesting how #solar is clustered within some states – North Carolina is totally covered!
Brilliant set of infographics from "Mapped: How the US generates electricity"
Do you know where your state’s electricity comes from? You might be surprised - check out this awesome interactive #map #dataviz #earthanalytics
Mapped: How the US generates electricity by Great piece of data/science journalism/visualisation
How the US generates electricity goes into my top #dataviz & interactive #map favs. Well done #gistribe
*4 out of 10 US coal plants have closed in the past decade *Avg coal plant is now 40yrs old & runs half the time
We've mapped every power plant in the US, from Alabama to Wyoming – & everything in btwn
Trump's solar import tariff will disproportionately affect these six states, which are due to install the vast majority of planned new solar capacity: 40% CA 11% TX 11% NC 7% NV 7% AZ 7% FL (TX, NC, AZ & FL voted for Trump)
Fascinating! In case you missed it (like me) have mapped every power generator in the US
Here are all the coal plants in Texas. Two just announced closure & their 2.3GW is about 10% of the state's coal.
This is some mad #dataviz and interactive map swag on how the US generates electricity by
That map comes w other dope visuals like this GIF showing rise of solar and wind over the past 10 years
You can literally see the outline of the state of Massachusetts here. Good visual of how policy drives power mix.
This map of US electricity generation from is fascinating, comprehensive, and oddly beautiful too:
There are some fascinating geographical quirks in the distribution of US power plants
Spot the difference: US electric capacity today vs 10 years ago
Very interesting. "Mapped: How the US generates #electricity " #energy #climatechange #solar #wind #carbon
Mapped: How & where the US generates #electricity by via #dataviz
Hours of fun (and you might learn something too): Our interactive map shows how the US generates electricity
Spot the Southeastern US state with the strong solar market. Excellent visualization h/t
Incredible #Map Of Genuine Beauty & Wonder: How The #USA Generates #Electricity By Source
Amazing tool maps US electricity production. Industry rapidly transforming. Check out this great tracker
US #Energy Information Administration (EIA) shows that 501 #coal units have closed over the past 10 years, while 45 have opened #renewables #emissions #Trump
Really impressive visualization on energy sources in the US. Awesome that Washington & Oregon have more hydro than gas & coal sources!
Mapped: How the US generates electricity | Carbon Brief Surprising how much wind, solar and hydro already exists
Fabulous new maps show USA #solar deployment concentrated in a small number of states
.'s incredible, interactive tool, lets you breakdown US power generation anyway you like: v
Good read: Mapped: How the US generates electricity
The is expanding its Beyond Coal campaign. Here are all the US coal plants still running:
US #wind and #solar saw unprecedented expansion over the past 10 years adding more than 3,000 units and growing net capacity seven-fold to 122GW, thus eclipsing #nuclear, hydro and #oil #renewables #emissions #Trump

*Epic* work by my old colleagues at . When is the poster going on sale, ?
The US gas boom happened in the 2000's, with deregulation & expected demand growth. Ready capacity to kill coal!
There's something missing from this map of planned US electric capacity. Can you spot it?
If you like maps, investigating the mix of renewables vs coal/gas state by state, or learning more about why coal is a dying industry no matter what the administration tries to do, this is a really neat resource by . Check it out!
(We recently mapped all the power stations in the US and made a before/after map to show how it has changed as a result of those many many fossil power plant retirements)
We have to be careful in interpretation, noting that these maps are based upon capacity - see the text below
And the recent story for the US electricity capacity - it is strongly dominated by renewable AND gas
We can use the tool to explore the geo-localisation of nuclear & hydro & solar
As hundreds of old #coal and #oil units have retired, #wind and #solar technologies have come of age and thousands of sites have sprung up across the US #renewables #energy
1,000s of old coal & oil units have closed in the US over the past decade
US #Wind and #solar saw unprecedented expansion, adding more than 3,000 units and growing net capacity seven-fold to 122GW, thus eclipsing #nuclear, hydro and #oil
There is broad support for wind & solar across the US, & not much appetite to build new coal plants!
US #Energy Information Administration (EIA) shows that 501 #coal units have closed over the past 10 years, while 45 have opened #renewables #emissions #Trump
Coal is suffering a fast death in the US, quickly replaced by excess gas generation & new wind & solar
Its not presented in a fancy spiral, but similar numbers for the US can be found in this article
Explore and compare Virginia's energy portfolio to other states in the Mid-Atlantic region! (note NC/VA solar!)
New analysis by of US electricity generation, including an interactive map of every plant:
Great interactive of the US electricity system, & an informative text to describe it!
