NEED TO MOVE TO RENEWABLES WHICH ARE NOW CHEAPER

Updated: Sep 29, 2022

All Ohioans should have access to clean and affordable energy. This can be achieved through policies that encourage clean energy alternatives which are cheaper than fossil fuels. Over the last years, the cost of building wind and solar has declined and that trend is expected to continue (International Renewable Energy Agency).

When compared with fossil fuels and nuclear power, the cost of renewable energy is less. New onshore wind now costs about $46 per megawatt-hour, while large-scale solar plants cost $45 per megawatt-hour. In comparison, new coal-fired plants cost $74 per MWh, while gas plants are $81 per MWh (according to a BloombergNEF report).
