Default New Wind Farms Cheaper Than Even Existing Coal Plants

It's now cheaper to build a new wind farm
than to keep a coal plant running
June 3

Inflation dictates that the cost of living
will continue to rise — except, it seems,
when it comes to renewable energy. The cost
of building a new utility-scale solar or
wind farm has now dropped below the cost of
operating an existing coal plant, according
to an analysis by the investment bank Lazard.
Accounting for government tax credits and
other energy incentives would bring the cost
even lower.

The LCOE for coal this year is between $27
and $45 per megawatt. That figure is $29 to
$56 for a wind farm and $31 to $44 for a
solar farm, depending on the technology used.

Wind power costs have dropped as utilities
have turned to bigger and bigger turbines,
which can produce more energy. The largest
turbines installed today can produce double
the power they could've a decade ago,
according to the Energy Information
Administration, dramatically increasing the
amount of power a parcel of land can produce.
Wind and solar installation has also gotten
more competitive, driving the development of
more efficient technology.

Lazard also noted that wind and solar farms
typically require fewer people to run than
a coal or nuclear plant, further decreasing
their cost.

Except when it is dark or the sky is cloudy. You want to go back to Abraham Lincoln days and read books by candlelight? No computers or TV at night and we go to bed at sundown???

That was with the old wind farms. We're talking about the new.

You would think that a electrical engineer might understand the latest simplisity of energy storage when the sun is down. Tesla did a slam dunk solar power instal in Australia.

I can hardly pay my taxes... Much less pay attention

How are the NEW wind farms better than the Older ones? I helped do a bird count (dead bird count) when they installed some wind generators. I forget the actual dead bird numbers killed but it was not all that many. This was in the early 2000's
