hahaha! I know I got tricked like you guys too, sorry for laughing but it just makes me feel that I am not the only one and that I don't have horns on my head. But the answer is not B guys=( But now let me tell you and I finally figured why. I just realised reading my notes that in GMAT world

"as is the case" is preferred over "as it is". Similarly "as was the case" over "as it was".

So the OA is C

as much energy is generated... as was the case...

overlooked this one the first time too.

@UVS, taking this sentence a step further, do you understand why the colon is used here?

Another explanation could be that "it" here does not have a clear antecedent. "it" could refer to wind power or energy. Answer choice C takes away this ambiguity. E does not have "it" but it is awkward in construction.

Rock on !
