Hyped News -- The EIA Continues To Make A Big Deal Out Of Non-Dispatchable Energy -- April 5, 2017

For the archives.

The EIA, via twitter, makes a big deal that the amount of US wind energy consumption has increased 20% year-over-year.

The graph is worth a thousand words. Twenty percent of zero is still zero.

Total energy consumption by source. Of all sources, geothermal, wind, and solar need to be combined if they were to even show up on the graph. If broken out separately, wind and solar would come close to rounding to zero.
