It’s Now the Cheapest Option

According to a recent study by the International Renewable Energy Agency, unsubsidized renewable energy is the cheapest option compared to fossil-fuel energy options. This is big news for the green energy movement because that means the progression of green energy solutions is increasing even more rapidly in the right direction. At this point, politicians can’t keep making excuses to going back to the old ways of energy resources, which cause environmental problems.
