Cost Comparison: Decommissioning a Wind Turbine vs. Plugging & Abandoning an Oil Well

One comparison very few people ever make is how much useable energy does one oil or gas well produce over its lifetime. Then take a windmill and establish how much useable energy it produces. I insist on useable because wind and demand don’t always match. Hydrocarbons provide their energy when we need it. Wind when nature decides it wants to give us wind. Oil & Gas have a very vastly positive balance – no thing one could say about wind. They can’t live without subsidies during their lifetime, they need even more cash when they break down.
