This capital cost is actually lower than a comparable Combined Cycle Gas Turbine plant operating at the same, quite typical, capacity factor. MIT and the University of Berkeley carried out a study and the increased value of electricity produced when it is flexible in this manner is 42% in Texas and 67% in California. This need for flexible power will only grow in the future as renewables expand.


One might wonder why the use of renewables would expand if inexpensive nuclear power is available, especially from such a responsive system as this.
