    hmm, well in USA you can have these sources or major sources - fossils (coal and oil , btw oil is not used for generation of electricity ) - nuclear power plant - natural gas - geothermal power plants are there - solar , basically in cali - wind at lower scale and - tidal energy these all are used for power generation

    nuclear has small fraction in the whole power generation so basically power generation is contributed by all of the above and yea you can say majority is provided by nuclear and fossils

    If you want the single dominant contributor in the US, it's coal.
