It would seem fairly simple to figure out that operating a solar powered electricity producing plant would be a lot easier and cheaper than a coal fired one.
Except the real cost of providing 7x24 reliable power is not simply a question of of the cost per megawatt. What matters is the costs imposed on the grid by a power source and sources like wind and solar impose large costs which are not factored into those numbers.
