Detail on the conditions under which this cost is valid
- Assumes O&M costs of £1/MWh based on 2011 gross generation and pumping of 2040GWH.
- Capital costs of £1bn per 2GW.
The figures are based on an assumption of £1/MWh on 2,040,000MWh gross (pump and generation) then this would equate to £2,040,000 of O&M (operate and maintain). Dividing this through by 1,728MW (1,728,000kW), on (6 x 288MW units at Dino), this would give £1.18/kW.
