Most installed wind doesn't generate even 40% on average.
Your typical install is a around 25% of name plate.
Where I am and west Texas they get around 50% of name plate.

Alta Wind was 2-3 Billion on 6,000 acres and is averaging 19% (Wiki states 30% but then also states annual production of 2,680.6 GWh) for .3GW.
.
$7-10/ Watt of average output installed.
.
So why do we cry and pull the plug on a new AP1000 reactor when it hits $7 instead of $4? And will crank out 90% of nameplate day or night for 60 years?
.
Comercial solar PV in my area is $2.50/ nameplate capacity Watt installed but only does 15%. So on average that would make it $16/ Watt. And there will be many days of zero in the winter.

How the world will end. And it has nothing to do with man made global mass hysteria.

https://youtu.be/p4d7naDAsKU

In 20 or 30 years man made global warming will be laughed at as hard if not harder than the satanic day care nonsense we had in the 1980s.
(Because remember the hole in the ozone was supposed to kill us all by now)
