A company is considering investing in power generation. It wants to setup a 1000 MW power generation system. The company hired you as a consultant to explore different options for power generation which are (i) Coal based power plant, (ii) Natural gas based power plant, (iii) Wind turbine farm, and (iv) Photovoltaic farm. Prepare a feasibility report by considering the following parameters,

(b) Initial capital cost

(c) Operating cost

(d) Payback period

Assume that the company can sell electricity at a flat rate of 8¢/kWh for thermal power plants. Due to the government incentive, the electricity generated by the PV farm would be sold at a rate of 55¢/kWh and the electricity generated by the wind farm would be sold at a rate of 19¢/kWh. For any other information not provided here assume appropriate values and provide justification and reference for all assumed values.
