Forget coal, both solar and wind are now cheaper than new natural gas plants
Wind and solar power have seen a massively substantial drop in their prices. For many years, these forms of renewable energy were seen as very expensive. As a result, people turned to natural gas plants as a way to produce energy for the world that we live in. It was not ideal but it was necessary due to the costs associated with the other options. Now, that does not seem to be the case anymore as solar and wind are cheaper.
- Renewable energy is something that people have spent a lot of money on to perfect over the years.
- There are plenty of new options regarding solar power to be used instead of older gas plants.
- At this point in time, coal is not the only alternative to the traditional gas plants.
“No longer are U.S. solar and wind plants merely cheaper than coal plants — they are also more affordable than new natural gas plants.”
