Will the age old argument of green energy being more expensive than fossil fuels be finally put to rest?

We have all heard the age old argument that developing renewables is too expensive when compared to traditional energy sources such as fossil fuels. Thsi is probably one of the biggest stigmas behind our industry that has been used for far too long.
