A Triple Play for Progress: Opportunity often knocks, but this week it knocked down the door.

In just five years, the cost of generating electricity from wind turbines has fallen 58 percent, while the cost of solar power has plunged a breathtaking 78 percent, the Advanced Energy Economy Institute reported in a study that came out this week.

It costs less now to get new electricity from wind turbines than from generators fueled by nuclear power, coal, or natural gas. Utility-scale solar power costs less than nuclear and, in most cases, competes favorably with coal and natural gas, even before federal incentives are added.windmillsFor story, go to:  https://medium.com/natural-resources-defense-council/a-triple-play-for-progress-52c33372bdb8
