The business pages of Sweden's main daily newspaper, Dagens Nyheter, headlined a recent article "Windpower getting profitable." The article gave an overview of wind development in Sweden, interviewing local utilities like Varberg Energi, which have invested in wind plant. Today wind power is reasonably profitable with state subsidies, said the article, but within a few years these will not be necessary. Wind turbines are getting bigger and production costs are falling at the same time that the price of electricity in Sweden is expected to rise. The state owned power company Vattenfall told the newspaper that while it does not need wind power, its customers demand it. For this reason the utility will build demonstration projects.
