Myth #6. Renewable energy is just a tactic used to make money
Most people believe renewable energy is very expensive, even though this is purely a myth. In fact, the cheapest ways of generating energy are solar power and onshore wind, making it much less cheap than nuclear, gas, and fossil fuels.
According to Earth.org, the cost of renewable energy has decreased drastically, faster than anyone could have ever anticipated. Even so, the government is still supporting dirty fossil fuels.
“did you know the US has the biggest fossil fuel subsidies in the world? That’s right, we spend an average of $568 billion per year supporting dirty fossil fuels.”
