"After 20 years and billions in subsidies, wind produces a puny amount of unreliable electricity. The United States uses 20 to 25 percent of all the electricity produced in the world. Wind produces just 3 percent of that. And, of course, wind power is available only when the wind blows. You can’t easily store it. So it is of limited use for a country that needs huge amounts of reliable, low-cost electricity. Relying on windpower is the energy equivalent of going to war in sailboats when nuclear subs are available."
"The wind subsidy is so large that wind developers are actually paying distributors to take their wind power, undercutting the nuclear and coal plants that are necessary to provide the reliable, low-cost electricity our country needs."
--Tennessee Senator Lamar Alexander, in an op-ed on his website
