It's often cheaper to build and run solar than to buy gas for an existing plant.

About fucking time. Yet too little.

All it took was ramping up our exploitation of the third world to artificially keep lithium prices down lol

Can’t wait until the e-waste crisis also stops being ignored. Average lifespan of a solar panel is ~25 years and there’s basically 0 solutions for recycling them (except for this one plant in France I guess). Knowing the US, I doubt we’ll have anything figured out before it’s too late again
