Every year, the National Renewable Energy Laboratory’s Annual Technology Baseline (ATB) projects the future cost of wind and solar energy. The graphs above show the projected cost of wind and solar in the best-case scenario. Every year since 2015 the projections have grown more optimistic. | Source: UC Berkeley Goldman School of Public Policy

The graphs above show the power mix in two different scenarios — one, where the lawmakers enact policies, such as a national clean power standard, to push utilities to shift to wind and solar (left), and one where utilities continue to operate as normal (right). | Source: UC Berkeley Goldman School of Public Policy
