Wind is the game changer
While the price for fossil fuel derived electricity will increase even further due to high demand and shrinking natural resources, the price for green electricity from wind and solar farms has continuously decreased in the recent past making renewables a serious competitor for market share. In the near future, renewables are poised to replace fossil fuels completely as the costs for wind turbines and solar panels will continue to come down. Furthermore, wind and sun do not issue invoices. Their energy is for free!
