Wind power produced half of Iowa's electricity in November, and produced half of Scotland's electricty last year. That's cherry picking the data for places with a lot of wind and small populations,
but it's a model the rest of the world can follow. Wind power costs have come down 66% in the last 6 years, said one source I looked at. The 4th quarter of 2015 was the third highest quarter for installation of new wind capacity. The tax credit program was extended for this year, with gradual phaseout over 4-5 years as the market takes over. I don't know what the current crash in oil prices is doing to the wind energy market.

Meanwhile it's 13 degrees out and I'm trying to stay in and bundled up.
