But in what instance has the price risen because of a temporary situation (and not due to normal inflation), and then come down when that situation no longer existed?
You guess correctly. And, (B):

You might say "how so?"

When the government creates a tax supported subsidy along with regulations to promote it, the erection of a wind generator is by definition,,,,; a government job.

Look at the millions of shovel ready jobs Obama's stimulus created. Oh wait, shovel ready became a punch line in an Obama joke. His jobs council laughed along with the joke but the money was spent anyway. There is no reason to believe Biden’s gigantic pork barrel legislation would be any better at creating jobs.

Like Spain's disasterous program of going green energy cost 2.2 traditional jobs for every one it created.

WindAction | Spain admits that the green energy as sold to Obama is a disaster

But why not accelerate the process of creating a government dependent permanent underclass of Democrat voters now underway at our Southern border by wrecking the energy sector and by extension the economy.

And that right there is the actual goal of the Democratic Party led by Biden, Schumer and Pelosi. They are all traitors to their oaths of office.

Maybe that is the real idea. We are told every single hour of every day that "PEOPLE" are causing the climate to change, and it's going to kill us all, right? Maybe the radical left wants to thin the herd, in the name of helping all of humanity.
