Is building a solar farm or a wind farm more expensive?

    The cost of either depends on a few factors that can change by quite a lot. For example, the real estate required can be quite expensive. In this regard, solar can require more real estate for the same energy throughput.

    Aside from this, maintenance on the generators in wind turbines can be quite costly compared to the relatively maintenance-minimal solar units. Solar is ideal for a small, individual installation, for example, like a home. Placing a wind turbine on your house is likely not very practical.

    As for farming lots of energy, wind is typically more productive when it comes to the bottom line. Especially if they can put the wind farms on the ocean, where the real estate costs will not be a significant cost.
