Did you know? Wind energy is now one of the lowest cost sources of electricity generation.
Wind energy is more cost-competitive than new sources of energy supplied by coal with carbon capture and storage, small hydro or nuclear power.
The fuel that turns wind turbine blades is free and the price of electricity it produces is set for the entire life of the wind farm.
Long-term cost certainty of wind farms have a stabilizing effect on electricity rates, providing important protection for consumers.
Unlike other energy supply alternatives, the cost of building wind energy continues to decline, with dramatic drops over the past three years.
