Clean energy production getting cheaper - IREA

The International Renewable Energy Agency says that clean energy production is getting cheaper.

A report from the agency says the cost of extracting power from solar panels has fallen by 60% in the past few years.

Results from other renewable energy generation methods, such as wind and hydro power, were similar.

The IREA says the report debunks the myth that clean energy is too expensive compared with electricity generated by burning fossil fuels.
