The front-cost of capital makes wind and natural gas plants two different worlds, where it is very difficult to compare which one is better from a cost-benefit perspective...
It does if you use deficit-based fiat currency as a pricing denominator.
But if you unitise/monetise energy - through the simple expedient of enabling producers to create units redeemable in payment for it - then the calculus changes. There are tens of billions of dollars looking for a 'hedge' against rising energy prices denominated in dollars. These funds may be deployed through direct 'Peer to Peer' investment in unitised renewable energy and energy saving projects. These may therefore be financed through receiving value now in exchange for Units which cost the issuers nothing to redeem in the future.
Unlike gas project investment.
As I said recently here.
Anyone capable of understanding Air Miles or Tesco Club Cards can understand unitisation of energy.
