Is renewable energy more expensive per KW than non renewable sources?

    Renewable energy is generally more expensive than non-renewable, but technological improvements are making it more affordable, and as it becomes more common, the price will fall as well.  In 1980, for example, solar power cost $0.95 per KWh.  It has dropped more than 20 cents, but is still expensive compared to the average national price of electricity (2003) which was 8 cents per KWh.

    Renewables are thought to be cheaper over time, however, as they aim to prevent many costs we will incur due to climate change and pollution.
