There are three points to note;
1) Renewables, led by solar and wind, dominated new capacity installations in 2014 with 57 percent of the total.
2) FERC typically only reports utility-scale solar installations. In other words it misses almost all 'Residential' and 'Commercial' capacity. According to this analysis, reported in Scientific American - that means that typical reporting misses about half of all solar generation which is 'behind the meter'. What is striking is, as shown in the pie chart above, the amount of new solar generation capacity being added in the Residential (7.3 percent) and Commercial (6.7 percent) sectors.
3) FERC's January 2015 Infrastructure Update shows that only 106 megawatts of new coal capacity was added in the entire US in 2014 (this is included under 'Other' in the pie chart). In October 2014 SaskPower commissioned the Boundary Dam coal-fired carbon capture scheme which contained 160 megawatts of new coal-fired generation capacity. In other words: last year SaskPower added more coal-fired generation capacity than the entire United States: now there's something to be proud of!
