I recommend reading the comments--it is nice to see many people get that wind power is a sham.
Learn more about wind power here and here.
According to the Energy Information Administration (based on total levelized costs for a new plant), offshore wind is about 143% more expensive than a conventional coal plant. Offshore wind is even about 62% more expensive than onshore wind.
