Renewables push won’t bring down power prices.

Gas is needed as backup for windless days without sun. Gas is the only kickstart energy. Fireup coal&nuclear takes time. Gasturbine plants are most expensive & needed add-on next to wind & solar. A peak load able grid is needed too. The price of electricity is determined by the price of gas on the international markets. As a result, renewables companies are making record profits selling energy that is generated by the wind.
