Renewable energy sources such as wind turbines and solar panels can help power a lot of homes and businesses around the world, but in many places they can’t compete with fossil fuels.
And while there’s no doubt that wind power is a lot cheaper than fossil fuels, there are many places where the cost is high.
The Economist has compiled a list of the countries with the lowest cost of renewable energy.
Here are the 10 lowest-cost countries for wind turbines.
New Zealand $2.39 per kilowatt hour Wind energy is becoming more cost-competitive as it becomes cheaper to build, operate and store the technology.
But the price of the technology varies widely, and it is expensive to buy and maintain.
So how much does it cost to produce and install a wind turbine in New Zealand?
New Zealand has one of the lowest rates in the world at $2 per kilogramne of power, according to the Australian Energy Market Operator.
Wind power prices are set by auctions held by the Department of Energy and Resources.
To set prices, the auction committee selects the power generation technology and makes an assessment of its value in terms of economic and environmental benefits.
In the last auction, the panel was unable to make a final decision on the viability of the turbine technology.
The cheapest turbine in the country is a 60-kilometre-long, 40-metre-high, 300-kilogram-square-metres (3,300-square metres) power plant with a capacity of 5,000MW.
But that’s only the first phase of the project.
The second phase will see turbines built to 40,000 metres and will be installed at three sites in the capital, Auckland, the north island and the west coast.
Wind energy can be cheaper in New York City and San Francisco than in the rest of the world.
Prices are $1.25 per kilometre for large-scale turbines, and $0.50 per kilo for small turbines.
The price is a bit lower in some parts of the US.
Wind is also cheaper in places like Indonesia and Thailand than in many other countries.
In some parts, such as the Philippines, wind turbines cost between $30 and $60 per kilomower, and in others, the price is more like $5 to $10 per kilohorse.
The most cost-effective wind power generators in the Philippines are based on wind-energy technologies such as kerosene-powered generators and hydropower-powered turbines.
Wind turbines can be used to produce energy from the air or to produce electricity from the ground.
The Philippines has one wind farm, in the northern city of Makati, that produces 1,000 megawatts of power.
Wind farms in other parts of Asia have been built for around $10 to $20 per kilofuehre, and there are also large wind farms in China, Indonesia and Malaysia.
There are many wind turbines in the US, but the cheapest one is a $1,200 turbine that is capable of producing 2,000 kilowatts of power a day.
A wind turbine can produce electricity with a wind speed of 3.4 metres per second and has a peak power output of 12.2 kilowats-per-hour.
The cost of electricity in New South Wales is a little cheaper than most places, but is still very expensive compared to most countries in the region.
The electricity costs for wind power vary from $2 to $4 per kiloelectric hour.
A typical American household spends $1 per day to buy electricity from a wind farm.
Renewable electricity sources in New Guinea The New Guinea Wind Power Council has the cheapest prices in the Caribbean and is the only one in the hemisphere that charges by the hour, rather than by kilowatthour.
The Council is a private company, but its members are the private power generators who operate the turbines.
A local company, Wind Power, is responsible for maintaining the turbines, while a national company, the Wind Power Corporation, manages the grid and manages the transmission lines.
In other words, the wind power industry in New Guineans is a mixed one.
The Wind Power Commission, which operates the wind turbines, is a government-owned entity and operates in the public interest.
The wind power power is supplied by a group of companies, including wind farms, that pay a share of the profits to the government.
However, in many ways the Wind power Commission has a monopoly on the market for the electricity it produces.
The commission has a shareholding in wind farms that are part of its portfolio.
Wind Power has a 50 per cent shareholding, while the wind farm operators pay a 25 per cent stake.
The other 50 per and 25 per per per share shares are owned by other companies, such an energy companies and small power generators.
The distribution companies, which provide electricity to the grid, have a 20 per cent and 20 per per cent interest, respectively.
The remaining 20 per and 20 cent
