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

More Than - that is required: Hence B, C, D are out. Now btw A & E

it refers to energy here hence I will go with A.

correct idiom as much as... A,E are out
B,D "it" refers to what " energy or wind power" ambigous.

C is the correct answer.
