Jim Lanard, President of the Offshore Wind Development Coalition, talks how wind power causes electricity price suppression, and the push back to that.

He explains how offshore wind power will LOWER electric rates, causing lower profits for those who make their money off fossil fuels and ultra high “peak demand”  “market rates”… they’re probably not going to like that!
