EIA: Solar Power Generates Higher Wholesale than Other Power Sources

SUGAR LAND--October 13, 2020--Researched by Industrial Info Resources (Sugar Land, Texas)--According to the U.S. Energy Information Administration (EIA), in 2019, solar power in the U.S. fetched much higher average wholesale prices than other forms of power, such as wind, fossil, fuels and nuclear--more than twice the average price of all power sources.
