Can wind produce enough efficient energy to get rid of coal plants?

    Certainly it has that potential. It’s just a question of setting up enough wind farms in the right places, and investing time and money into researching the most efficient turbine designs.

    Wind energy also requires such things as neodymium in its motors and turbines – a material currently (2010) imported 100% from China, among other things for which the US is import-dependent. Given that wind energy currently supplies about 1% of electricity generation and coal 45%, it will be a very very long time before wind could supplant coal as an electricity generator, if it is even technically feasible.
