Because wind energy has a zero “fuel” cost, wind power can place significant downward pressure on wholesale electricity prices. A new study by Synapse Energy Economics looks at the power market in the Midwest (MISO) and found that the more wind you add to the grid, the lower wholesale prices dip, and the more consumers save.
Please join us for a report release and panel discussion with representatives from Synapse, Americans for a Clean Energy Grid, and others at 9:30 AM on Tuesday, May 22nd. Attendees can also listen to the event via teleconference, with dial-in instructions released next week.
