Many times when talking policy the concept that renewables / solar should “stand on their own” without subsidies shows up in the conversation.   This perceived need for solar to “stand on its own” is a significant misperception due to the mistaken thought that renewables / solar have an even playing field. Remarkably, it’s even more uneven than the numbers show because much of the fossil fuel subsidies are written into the tax code as opposed to renewable subsidies that are time limited. It’s time to break down this misconception and replace it with the current energy reality.

Everyone is entitled to his own opinion, but not his own facts.
