The price of residential electricity in the EU is correlated with the level of renewable energy installed on a per capita basis. The data shows that more renewables leads to higher electricity bills. The notion that renewable energy is cheap is one of five Green energy myths discussed.

The chart shows a strong correlation between per capita Wind+Solar “capacity” and the consumer price of electrical power consumption.; with prices rising significantly when wind or solar capacity is increased.

A further chart indicates that nuclear power generation has no such impact.
