Wind Power’s Best Projects Rival Costs of Coal Plants, BNEF Says

April 5 (Bloomberg) -- The best wind power projects will cost about the same as new coal-fired plants, said Bloomberg New Energy Finance Chief Executive Michael Liebriech at a conference in New York today.

Electricity from new, high-quality wind power projects built today costs about $65 a megawatt-hour, Liebreich said. Power from a new coal-fired power plant costs about $68 a megawatt-hour, including carbon price and project finance risk, fuel prices and environmental controls, he said.
