Electric generating facilities are expected to add more than 26 gigawatts (GW) of utility-scale generating capacity to the power grid this year, according to a report from the EIA. The majority of that increase is expected to come from increased solar generating capacity, with natural gas making up the second-largest portion of the gains to overall electrical capacity.

Additions from solar are expected to reach 9.5 GW, or 37% of increases, while natural gas is expected to add 8.0 GW, or approximately 31% increases of power over the next ...
