agreed

"As much as" is correct idiom.

D, E - changes word order and meaning
A, E - not idiomatic
B - what is 'it' ?

C - best choice.

Thanks the OA is C

But my question is that if we rewrite the sentence substituting C), it becomes:

There are hopeful signs that we are shifting away from our heavy reliance on fossil fuels: more than ten times as much energy is generated through wind power now as （the case was generated in 1990)

How could “case” was generated?

Can’t it refer to “energy”?

C) generated through wind power now as was the case
D) now generated through wind power as it was
E) now generated through wind power than was the case

idiom syntax
as pretty as
as good as
as much as
Therefore BCD remain.

B is wrong because it is ambiguous and can refer to wind power.

C is correct because the case refers to the situation in which energy generated through wind power occurred. It refers to the situation.

D is wrong because of the placement of now.
It changes the meaning of the sentence.
generated through wind power now - shows that energy has always been generated through wind power and that wind power energy generation has increased to new levels.
now generated through wind power - shows that alternative methods were used and energy generation from wind only has now increased.
