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.

Lazard's analysis is based on a measurement known as the levelized cost of energy analysis (LCOE), which is a way of calculating the total production cost of building and operating an electricity-generating plant.

I think the article refutes your claim, TimG: All building and operating costs are included.
