If we buy renewable energy from our electric company should we pay more money?

    I think that it would be less expensive if you were to pay for renewable energy. The renewable energy is cleaner for the environment, so you would think that the electric company would reward you for your desire to purchase renewable energy.

    In the beginning, it will be more expensive. Whenever infrastructure is new or needs to be built, utilities are going to raise prices to cover some of their costs. Once renewables are popular and the infrastructure is everywhere, prices will go down. But often, you are not really paying for the energy itself, but rather, the costs of transmission and distribution. The only renewable with an already-built, large network infrastructure is hydropower, but that all depends on if it was a good rainy season or not (in regards to how much they can use). Market factors determine prices too.
