Coming back to my comments at the very top of the article, it’s interesting (and telling) that Mr. Rice highlighted almost the exact same points. He noted that wind power costs today are one-third to 25% of what they were 10–15 years ago — that’s a tremendous cost drop in a short period of time. It’s easy for someone who learned a little bit about wind energy in 2000 or 2005 to think he knows the story, but if he hasn’t learned much about the economics of energy since then, he may have drastically incorrect assumptions in his head about why wind power is so common today and the role policy does or doesn’t play in its continued growth.
