Best Answer

Wind power is abundant.

There are 165,000 working wind turbines in the world in early 2012, and wind power world-wide is expected to have more generating capacity than nuclear in 2015 or 2016.

Wind is an abundant, free resource. Brazil alone has a projected wind potential generating capacity of 140 gigawatts.

Good onshore wind sites are fairly common across the world. Offshore wind farms, typically erected within a few kilometres of shore, add enormously to the potential sites for wind power generation.

Is economics inrelevant in absence of scarcity?

Scarcity is a relative aspect. Consider there is 'abundant' X and also 'abundant' Y but the consumer has to decide how much Income (Income may also be considered abundant) to allocate between X and Y (Now though both abundant they may be relatively scarce i.e. when compared to each other), and this is done from his perception of utility which is an economic concept. So economics is also the study of optimal allocation, in scarce or abundant scenario.
