(Adapted from US Army Corps of Engineers (1985)) Hydro energy has a fuel cost of approximately zero mills/kWh. The best loading of hydro to minimize system operating cost would be in the peak of the load. A 1000 MW installation would fit almost in the peak of the load and would displace CMBT-1 at 80 mills/kWh and CMCY-1 at 60 mills/kWh (Figure 13.1.17(a)). The resulting system cost for the week would be $5,306,000, saving $1,950,000...
