    The laws of supply and demand show that so-called "green energy" can't exist without government subsidies and mandates, asshole.

    Nah ... Just for the people paying their electric bill in Louisiana when AEP decides to build a wind farm in Oklahoma to support their grid.
    The stockholders charge the consumer for the upgrade that reduces the cost for generation after initial investment.

    It's costs the consumer, not the shareholders to implement the wind farm.
    Whether or not the consumers ever see the savings is debatable.

    AEP - News Releases - AEP Announces $4.5 Billion Investment In 2,000-Megawatt Wind Farm And Dedicated Power Line To Benefit Customers In Four States

    More electric equal less cost you can not beat the math but keep trying with your bull shit! Adding electric to the system can not raise cost you fucking idiot!

    What the hell does "adding more electric" mean? Adding higher cost sources of power definitely increases the cost of power to the consumer, dumbass.

    Renewables while running generate electricity there by raising supply higher than there was before the electric was created there by raising total supply of electricity it can not raise the price of electric. It may or may not lower the cost dependiong on demand. How fucking stupid are you? Show any evidence to support the op claim at all. There is none! If I am firing up a coal plant my cost opf producing that electric does not go up because some one is running a windmill. That wind mill does not effect my cost of production one little bit no matter how you slice it!

    I'm pretty sure he is talking about the principle that growing peas in your garden will reduce your grocery bill (not necessarily recoup your resource costs).
    Perhaps he is foolish enough to think that means peas are going to be cheaper for everyone at the grocery store ... :dunno:

    I think or I am pretty sure? If you do not understand the laws of supply and demand you do not belong in an adult conversation!

    I already did ... And that exact scenario.

    AEP bought and is phasing out (coal) the Doley Hills Mining Company (was part of CLECO) ...
    While building a $4.5 billion wind farm in Oklahoma ...
    And our energy bills increased to pay for both endeavors.
