Solar energy is now cheaper than grid in every city in China: https://www.carbonbrief.org/solar-now-cheaper-than-grid-electricity-in-every-chinese-city-study-finds?mc_cid=72a9bc8bbd&mc_eid=75ca111c50
Oh wait no I was wrong, it's not the solar panels that are lasting 8 years, it's...the companies themselves.
“There’s also the fact that companies just can’t be bothered a lot of the time – there are roofs all over Europe where solar could probably save money, but people are not jumping to do it.” CAPITALISM 💀
I love how "the more solar we build, the cheaper it gets, which dis-incentivizes building solar because companies want to wait until it gets even cheaper" is why we're not all on solar power.
@courtney ugh our roof needs replacing and i really want solar panelssss
@ellen SAME! I imagine our roof will probably be dealt with in...5 years, after the pipes, the rest of the windows, repainting, and redoing the kitchen. Ugh, houses.
@courtney ugh houses is right!
