In 2001, America got about one-half of one percent of its electricity from wind, solar and geothermal. Today, 20 years later, that number is more than 12 percent from wind, the sun, and the earth.
- The growth in wind as a source is almost zero, rising from 53 GWh nine years ago to 54 GWh in 2020.
- The solar numbers are much better, rising from 3 GWh in 2011 to 433 GWh last year.
- In 2011, there were 404 electric vehicle sales reported in the Volunteer State. By 2020, that number had risen to a total of 11,235.
