Wind energy news

Two somewhat unusual pieces of wind news.

Wholesale price of electricity dropped to $0.00 in Texas briefly, due to wind farms

I think you can guess why. Yes, wind power being cheap as heck, the wind blowing strong at night, and less electricity demand is the mixture that caused this to happen.

Big wind farms cost more per watt than small ones. 5 to 20 MW wind farms have the lowest installed cost per watt. Economies of scale don’t seem to work with wind.
