Nonhydro renewables out produce hydropower

On the EIA’s Today in Energy page yesterday it was reported that nonhydro renewables now routinely surpass traditional hydropower generation.

April marked the eighth consecutive month that total monthly nonhydro renewable generation exceeded hydropower generation. Only a decade ago, hydropower—the historically dominant source of renewable generation—accounted for three times as much generation in the United States as nonhydro renewable sources (wind, solar, biomass, geothermal, landfill gas, and municipal solid waste).
