No energy source is perfect. Few are as divisive as renewable energy.
Arguments against it centered on high cost, low reliability and the inability to build a network based on renewable energy. It’s easy to refute these arguments with real-world data.
For example, wind and solar provide the cheapest electricity in the United States on average. Meanwhile, eight different states rely on wind energy for at least 20% of their electricity. Texas generates more electricity from wind power alone than 39 states in total. Incorporate solar power, and the Lone Star state generates more electricity from renewables than 42 states from all sources combined.
