The power companies have the UK government over a barrel. They are refusing to build the necessary gas fired power stations, unless the government increase its subsidy for them.

The gas fired power stations will be required when the wind drops off. They will not be required when the wind is blowing. So makes the gas stations very uneconomical. Hence the subsidy requirement.

If taxpayers knew the real cost of wind generated electricity, they would be up in arms.
