  •  land based US contracts for wind energy (5+ / 0-)

    are going for $40 and lower.  That includes ptc which over 20 years is $10.  so $50, or 5 cents per kWh. aka cheap

    I think european offshore wind is double-ish.  but whoever gets the industry up and going has leg up when the economy of scales kick in.  like happened in US

    iowa by the way has really low MW prices (good wind resources, easy to build, interconnect, etc)  which is why warren buffett is investing heavily there

    paul ryan created the deficit
