First, we should examine where our electricity comes from. It is estimated that in the USA about 50% of electricity is derived from coal. After coal, the second most common energy source is natural gas, which produces about 20% of the USA’s electricity.
The final 30% of the USA’s electricity comes from non-combustible resources (gives off no CO2), what one could consider “green”; Nuclear, Hydro, and finally about 2% of electricity is derived from “renewable resources” Solar and / or wind.
