    Good question, david.

    The statistics for renewable energy outputs of the US are interesting.  Energy output for the year is measured in quadrillion btus.  A quadrillion is one thousand million million, and a btu is a British thermal unit, or the amount of energy it takes to heat one pound of water one degree. 

    According to the statistics that I found, renewable energy production has remained fairly constant.  Between 1989 and 2007, it has fluctuated between about 6 and 7 quadrillion btus, with the most recent data from 2007 being 6.813 quadrillion btus.

    Hope this helps!
