      Interesting thread.

      Big factor missed on the Texas Model was Time of Use and Time of Production.  Wind tends to produce best at night, and Spring and Fall.  All the most worthless times for Electricity.
      Heaviest Times of Use are Mid-Summer afternoons (Air Conditioning) which would have favored Solar Thermal Production.  Second Heaviest Time of Use is Winter Day

      There are factors other than money ("the market") that determine the value of a resource.

      I must have missed something.  What’s the downside of letting the market choose the winners?  If wind is cheaper than solar, why not go with that?  Don’t you want the cheapest RE source to compete with fossil fuels?
