Here's what Cramer's had to say about wind power lately.

Updated from 7:59 a.m. EDT

Jim Cramer has been talking about wind power a lot lately. In a

July 17 video for TV

, he said: "Wind is going to be, because it's so cheap, a major focus." It's going to be a 2009 story, he said, "so I think every time it goes down, you buy it."

In terms of green energy plays, Cramer said in a

July 23 video

, solar energy is expensive. "That is not the case with wind," he said. "Wind is really cheap."

On July 28, in

a post to his RealMoney blog

, Cramer said that the "wind story is a 2009 story in terms of earnings, but it is a takeover and consolidation story right now. Very exciting."

In an

Aug. 6 blog post

, Cramer called wind power "clean and efficient and able to be integrated to the grid much more easily than the critics say."

With this in mind, at, we've combed through his recent


blog posts,

TV videos, "Mad Money" TV show episodes and "Stop Trading!" segments and compiled the highlights of what he's been saying about ways to play wind power, including with such stocks as
