    into coal plants?

    According to here:

    your estimates seem to be wildly off, unless you are assuming no offshore wind. Solar PV and offshore wind are among the most expensive.

    And including externalities into natural gas regarding global warming, and the health/mortality issues related to coal boost those numbers considerably depending on your assumptions.

    •  I compare LCOE, thats not clear? (0+ / 0-)

      levelized cost of energy figured over 30 years.
