Green products too costly

Prices of green products are going down, but they are still expensive. Even with proper financing (i.e., leasing, loans), the upfront cost of renewable energy and green products can’t compete with hydrocarbon products and their century-old infrastructure.

The most common green products still need to be backed by subsidies to be sold:
-Electricity from solar and wind energy needs subsidies, especially in not-so-sunny or not-so-windy areas.
-Electric cars with expensive batteries wouldn’t sell much without subsidies, except to green-minded rich people.

Let’s not even mention cement, steel and many components that can’t be replaced as green technologies can’t produce them for a decent price.
