Don't want to hear about how solar is too expensive

The Los Angeles City Council recently approved a contract with a 250 MW PV plant.  It’s on tribal land, and according to this article, the tribe is pleased with the economics of the deal.

Ratepayers should also be pleased.  This contract adds 2.9% renewables to LADWPs mix, and at a price of 9.1 cents/kWh.  Read the details, here (pdf).

The cost of not switching to renewable resources is immense (depends on how much you value your children, drinking water, things like that).  But the good news is that price of making that switch is not that high at all.
