Wake Forest, NC— The US Energy Information Administration (EIA) has released projected cost estimates for power supply projects starting now that would be expected to begin operation by 2018.
These costs estimates serve as a guide for electric utilities as they construct new generation facilities to serve growing load or replace less efficient plants.
EIA groups these cost estimates into two basic types: dispatchable and non-dispatchable. Dispatchable generation can be turned on when needed and non-dispatchable cannot.
EIA cost estimates do not include federal and state tax credits.
