  • “Net revenues produced by the ERCOT markets in 2014 were lower than the estimated annualized cost of investing in any of these new technologies,” ERCOT’s Independent Market Monitor says in its new state of the market report.

Net revenues for coal and nuclear technologies increased by larger amounts from 2013 to 2014 because they benefit from the increase in natural gas prices.”
