The implications for the economics of coal power could be devastating. Figure 6 compares the operating cost of coal with the LCOE of new wind and solar PV. The operating cost of US coal could be higher than the LCOE of onshore wind by 2020 and solar PV by 2021. Figure 6. Capacity-weighted operating cost of US coal and LCOE of wind and solar
Coal-Fired Power Plant Construction Costs 5 In fact, rising commodity prices and increasing construction cost risks have been responsible, at least in part, for the cancellation or delay of more than fifty proposed coal-fired power plants since mid-2006. The following examples are illustrative of the

In 2008, Synapse found that the estimated costs of building new coal plants had reached $3,500 per kW not including financing costs, and that costs were still expected to increase further. These cost increases were driven by a worldwide competition for power plant design and construction resources, commodities, equipment, and manufacturing ...
A new nuclear power plant, for example, has one of the highest levelized costs, particularly compared to coal and natural gas-fired plants, and its costs are exceeded only by certain renewable plants, such as offshore wind and solar power, according to the Energy Information Administration (EIA).
