The question in the chart is the right one–if renewable energy is supposedly cheap, why does it take such huge subsidies to produce it? We are in the midst of a crisis of cost of supposedly renewable energy. Projects are being abandoned or not even started, as companies demand even higher subsidies and electricity rates. Renewable energy is phenomenally expensive, even before grid and storage costs are taken into account. Consumers and taxpayers are being burdened with an unnecessary expense for no good reason other than whacked climate hysteria.
