Western Wind: A Clean Energy Rodney Dangerfield?

Almost every company will tell you that their shares are undervalued, but what's a bit more unusual in this case is that their assets (wind farms with a little solar thrown in) are fairly easy to value with a rigorous discounted cash flow (DCF) model.
