Initial Data

Variable Value Name or Formula


Capacity, kW 100,000 cap
Capital cost, $/kW 800 costkw
Useful life, years 20 life
Capacity factor 75% capfac
Maintenance cost, $ 2,000,000 maint
Heat rate, BTU/kWh 6,800 heatrate
Interest rate 12% intrate
Electricty price, $/kWh 0.11 price

Key Intermediate Calculations

Construction cost, $ 80,000,000 capcost = cap*costkw

Effective capacity, kW 75,000 effcap = cap*capfac


Hours per year 8,760 hours = 365*24
Generation, kWh per year 657,000,000 kwh = effcap*hours
Annual revenue, $ 72,270,000 rev = kwh*price

Fuel required, million BTU 4,467,600 fuel = kwh*heatrate/1000000
