No Coal Smoke in These Skies
Wind power costs have dropped as utilities have turned to bigger and bigger turbines, which can produce more energy. The largest turbines installed today can produce double the power they could’ve a decade ago, according to the Energy Information Administration, dramatically increasing the amount of power a parcel of land can produce. Wind and solar installation has also gotten more competitive, driving the development of more efficient technology.
The Investment Bank Lazard also noted that wind and solar farms typically require fewer people to run than a coal or nuclear plant, further decreasing their cost.
And, of course, it’s expensive enough trying to save crap coal-generated electricity, you have to add in the cost of bribes to pimps like Trump.
