Avoided Cost of Capacity

Based on the Energy Information Administration's (EIA) Table 8.2, Cost and Performance Characteristics of New Central Station Electricity Generating Technologies, the base overnight cost of an advanced combustion turbine is $641 per kW. Since this amount is less than the $700 per kW threshold set forth in §25.181(d)(2)(A), the avoided cost of capacity will remain at $80 per kW for 2015.

Based on the Energy Information Administration's (EIA) Assumptions to the Annual Energy Outlook 2013, the base overnight cost of an advanced combustion turbine is $632 per kW. Since this amount is less than the $700 per kW threshold set forth in §25.181(d)(2)(A), the avoided cost of capacity will remain at $80 per kW for 2014.

Avoided Cost of Energy

As ERCOT's calculation of the avoided cost of energy shown below indicates, the 2015 avoided cost will be $0.05321 per kWh.
