Citations needed[edit]

What's up with people not citing their sources on the 500 MW plant in Israel? That seems very unbelievable. I put an incorrectly citation needed tag before, and somebody removed it instead of correctly formatting it. I put in the correct formatting this time.Israel rocks so dont say why is there a farm there and some of the biggest companies CEO are from israel

Again, somebody cites incorrectly. You don't cite blogs for article entries.


In need of an update[edit]

As the plant is neigh turnup. http://www.inbusinesslasvegas.com/2007/04/06/feature2.html 71.233.165.69 16:44, 29 April 2007 (UTC)

Turn-up report[edit]

It is unclear from the story whether there is enough thermal storage to provide output at night, since the story indicates natural gas is used at night to keep the working fluid... fluid. Flagmichael 14:45, 11 June 2007 (UTC)

Is that a joke?[edit]

266/134 about 2 $/kWh = 200 Cent/kWh. -- 95.222.227.5 (talk) 17:48, 18 July 2009 (UTC)

Ok, the power plant might be used longer than just one year, but there will be additional cost, too. -- 95.222.227.5 (talk) 21:48, 21 July 2009 (UTC)

If you set up a spreadsheet to calculate the levelised energy cost, you can make assumptions about the interest rate, operating budget, and longevity of the project. See what numbers you get. E.g. with a $1 million/year operating cost, a 30-year lifespan and a discount rate of 5%, I get 13.66 ¢/kW·h. With a 20 years and a rate of 10%, I get 24.48 ¢/kW·h.
