2016 United States cost full disclosure: solar minimum 0.25/kWh

–Conventional energy

Natural gas peak power plants: 165-217 us $/MWh (1.14-1.50 Yuan RMB/kWh)

Integrated gasification combined cycle: 94-210 us $/MWh (0.65-1.45 trillion yuan/kWh)

Nuclear power (excluding decommissioning demolition cost): 97-136 $/MWh (0.67-0.94 Yuan RMB/kWh)

Coal: 60-143 us $/MWh (0.42-0.99 Yuan RMB/kWh)

Natural gas combined cycle: 48-78 us $/MWh (0.33 and 0.54 Yuan RMB/kWh)

–Alternative energy sources

Residents of rooftop PV: 138-222 us $/MWh (about 0.95-1.54 Yuan/kWh)

Commercial rooftop PV: 88-193 us $/MWh (0.61-1.33 trillion yuan/kWh)

Community ground PV: 78-135 us $/MWh (0.52-0.94 Yuan RMB/kWh)

Polysilicon large terrestrial PV: 49-61 us $/MWh (RMB 0.34 to 0.42/kWh), PV + energy storage: $92/MWh (0.64 Yuan/kWh)

Film large terrestrial PV: 46-56 us $/MWh (0.32 to 0.39 Yuan RMB/kWh), PV + storage: $92/MWh (0.64 Yuan/kWh)

Storage of solar-thermal power: 119-182 us $/MWh (0.83-1.26 trillion yuan/kWh)

A fuel cell: 106-167 us $/MWh (0.74-1.16 trillion yuan/kWh)

Geothermal power: 79-117 us $/MWh (0.55-0.81 Yuan RMB/kWh)

Biomass power generation: 77-110 us $/MWh (0.54-0.76 Yuan RMB/kWh)

Onshore wind: 32-62 us $/MWh (0.22-0.43 Yuan RMB/kWh), offshore wind energy US $118/MWh (0.82 Yuan/kWh)

If you consider the federal tax credits, then all types of alternative energy life-cycle cost declines up to 30%:
