Government hinders solar power

I realized something about the price controls on electricity, they severely
hinder the development of alternative energy sources.
Solar and wind power are more expensive then fossil fuels - would this still
be true if the price controls were removed from fossil fuels?
My power company has some plan where you can "sponsor" a windmill. You can't
just buy power from them which has been windmill generated (and which is the
simplest most effective way to support alternative energy supplies), because
it's illegal for them to sell it. They're required by law to offer only the
cheapest source of power.
