Solar Power Plant - an overview ScienceDirect Topics

For utility-scale solar power plants the levelized cost is much lower. For a plant that uses crystalline silicon solar cells the levelized cost is $58–70/MWh, while for a plant with thin film solar cells the levelized cost is $50–60/MWh. These cost ranges put solar pV in competition with wind power and gas turbine combined cycle plants as among the cheapest sources of power in the United ...
