you dont know if it is referring to energy or "energy through windpower".

By making the comparisons structurally similar you get rid of the confusion.

A) generated through wind power now than it was -> than is incorrect
B) generated through wind power now as it was -> perfect
C) generated through wind power now as was the case -> case is incorrect
D) now generated through wind power as it was -> now generated through win power stresses on ,gen by wind power not on comparison between times !!!
E) now generated through wind power than was the case -> THAN

Clearly B

IMO B
OA???

I posted the OA above It is C
