Although since it has happened so often before, it has an extensive history throughout time and should be considered natural.

So let's drop all subsidies for all fuels, and see how it shakes out. I guarantee you, wind power would disappear in short order.
The production tax credit is only part of the problem. The real problem is renewable portfolio standards, imposed by many states on to their utilities. This requires that some set percentage (usually 10 or 15 percent) of power sold by each utility must be generated by "renewable" facilities (wind, solar, geothermal, etc.) When an area grows and requires more power, utilities are required to provide it. Thus they are forced to buy 10 percent of this new power from such sources, no matter the cost (or the lack of availability), and resell it to their customers. This forces a guaranteed market for alternative producers with no price ceiling. It is a huge hidden subsidy funded by ratepayers.
