Interesting, how the overwhelming free market success of wind energy has upset so many people. Most wind-power-haters would appear to be crony socialists.

Of course, out of sheer desperation, they'll fake stories about how the success is really all due to government subsidies. The free market pays no attention to those fables, and just keeps making big money with wind power.
Free market? That is a lie. There is not one place in the World that has a free market for Wind Energy.
That is why all your posts are moot, maMOOT, because you are a liar. Of course, you are also pretty stupid, in one sentence you say it is a free market, then you admit that Wind Power is heavily subsidized.

You are also a Denier, maMOOT

You deny the failures of thousands of wind turbines.

The world’s soon to be (2020) largest offshore wind farm has begun construction. The project, being developed by the largest offshore wind power developer – Ørsted – is located 74.5 miles off the coast of Yorkshire, UK.

The wind farm is named Hornsea Project One. Hornsea Project Two will follow a few years later, and Hornsea Project Three is in early planning stages.


The 1.2GW project will be constructed of 174 7.0MW turbines. The turbine model being installed – SWT-7.0-154 (PDF) – is manufactured by Siemens. The site will generate 4.1TWh of electricity per year.World’s largest offshore wind farm starts construction

Looks like offshore wind doing very well.

Don't forget the capacity factor you old quack! 30% of what is advertised will be produced that gives us 1.2 twh per year. Lets not forget the 50% line loss for being 50 miles and greater from land. 600 gw? That is only for the first year. Lets move on to the second year, after the 10% loss with normal wear and tear. 550 gw. We can also consider at least 10% will fail the first year alone. 490 gw!

Yes, we can see the foolishness.
