Coal power was offered for $85…Thirty-one companies participated in the Oct. 23 event and the average price for winning bids was $79.30 a megawatt-hour, 40 percent less than a comparable auction in 2013. The power plants must go into operation by 2017. Renewable-energy projects won every contract…” click here for more
