- Land-based Wind Power: Wind power has become one of America’s best choices for zero-carbon, zero-pollution energy. In fact, in 2012, wind was the largest single source of new electrical generation capacity in the U.S., accounting for 43 percent of new generation assets.
- Residential Solar: The falling price of solar panels has made them a more attainable option for more American families and small businesses. In 2012, rooftop solar panels cost about 1 percent of what they did 30 years ago — and deployment is skyrocketing.
- LED Lighting: LED (light-emitting diode) lights are about 80 percent more efficient than traditional incandescent light bulbs and last 25 times longer. Over its lifetime, a single $15 LED light will save more than $140 in electricity, compared to incandescent lighting.
- Electric Vehicles: America is the world’s leading market for electric vehicles (EVs). In 2012, America’s EV market tripled in size, and in the first half of 2013 it more than doubled. This rapid expansion has been fueled by high consumer satisfaction and impressive reductions in EV battery costs, which have fallen more than 50 percent in the last four years.
