1. Assuming a uniform energy production over the 40-year period, calculate the levelized cost of electricity from this plant. Follow the systematic procedure given below. a. Calculate the total initial investment

to build the plant using the Overnight Cost. You must multiply this by the plant capacity to get a "year 0" investment. b. Determine the fixed operating and maintenance (O&M) costs for a single year. The tabulated value is also given on a per-KW of capacity basis.
