Sunshine might be free but solar is not cheap

Post by FTW »

When hidden expenses are accounted for, it becomes obvious that solar is much more expensive than existing coal, natural gas, and nuclear power plants and that adding more solar will increase electricity prices for the families and businesses that rely upon it.

Not only are solar panels more expensive than the existing natural gas, coal, and nuclear plants but they also provide less value because they don’t provide electricity if the sun isn’t shining, which is most of the time.

Statistics from EIA show solar facilities in Mississippi only generated about 22 percent of their potential output in 2021, which means utility companies would need to install 450 megawatts (MW) of solar to generate 100 MW of electricity, on average, over the course of a year, requiring a huge overbuilding of capacity to get the same annual energy output.
