The experts have been feeling for quite a while now that the wind and solar power were the options which were cheapest on the market for the capacity of new power in most of the places if not all. This is also shown by power plants which the companies all over the United States have been choosing to install. While the natural gas is seen still as being cheaper in a few regions, it is going to be pushed out as the time is going on and the costs of the renewable energy seeing a major drop. In 2019’s first 10 months it had a few more new capacities installed than that of the renewables however at the end of the year is a major thing for the renewables and it is expected that they are going to finish the year with more than 50% of the new capacity of power as the numbers are going to be finally released in a few months.
By the time the year of 2019 had ended, there had been apparently many areas of the United States where the natural gas was having the cost of long-term being lowest in case the cost of carbon dioxide or the other pollutants have not been taken into account.
The modest prices on Carbon dioxide and the renewables had been cheaper were close to being everywhere. Even without taking the carbon dioxide into account, the renewables had been competitive in what appears to be over half of this country. The plants which had been installed in the year 2019 had not been started in the year 2019 as they take long time in building.
