Solar Industry Cost Overview

While reading the morning paper, I came across an article about cost trends an renewable energy technologies. 

The conclusion of the article is very encouraging.  To paraphrase, many renewables are on the cusp of obtaining “grid parity” (ie- they cost the same as fossil fuels.) And they’re achieving parity without considering the environmental costs (pollution) of utilizing fossils.  If you pair this article with the information from yesterday’s post about the paltry subsidies renewables receive, you can start to get extremely excited about the renewable revolution that’s right around the corner. 

My conclusion?  Even if the government won’t support renewables the way it supports fossils, these industries are going to keep growing anyway. 

Clean green future, here we come.
