    That's a relative term.

    All forms of energy are expensive, in direct cost and in environmental cost. Solar and wind produced electricity is getting cheaper relative to the cost of fossil fuels as an energy source.

    If you were to fully account for all of the costs of fossil fuels, by accounting for the cost of disposing of the waste product (CO2), a disposal fee if you will, then that source of energy would be a lot more expensive than it appears to be now.

    Solar electricity would be much "cheaper". Maybe the best place to put your money right now is to buy an electric car or plug-in hybrid.
