Green Technologies are more affordable
Once quite expensive, renewable energy is becoming increasingly affordable, especially in sunnier and windier parts of the country. The price of solar cell panels, for example, declined in recent years, allowing states like California — a role model for climate policy at the state level — to substantially increase their investments.
An evaluation by the University of Texas Energy Institute found that for most of the country, natural gas and wind power are the cheapest forms of new energy capacity. Now, when you factor in other costs like health, the availability of water and government regulations, solar, wind, nuclear and other greener energies prove even cheaper in some parts of the country.
Investing in Green Energy makes Economic Sense
Based on data from the Sierra Club, an environmental organization, clean energy accounts for more than double the number of jobs from coal, oil and gas combined. The growth is led by California, which has nearly half a million people employed in solar, wind and other clean energy jobs.

In addition to that, at the state level, there’s expanding evidence that cutting carbon dioxide radiation can be accomplished while furthering the country’s economy. In recent years, the Brookings Institution found that more than 30 states have done this. The ability to grow the economy while reducing harmful pollutants is a reality for many states.
