What is the avg. cost per kilowatt hour of electricity in Ca., Az., Or., Nv., and Wa.

Just thought you’d like to see this from WSJ last Thursday. Without Solar incentives it doesn’t look like PV is economically sensible. I’m sure there are exceptions to these retail prices but you have to admit electricity is fairly cheap in America according to this WSJ article. Of course it’s old data from 2017. But I keep hearing the big solar electric farm power wholesale cost is cheaper than coal. Giant solar farm generated power often sells for just $.025 cents per kilowatt hour. So what’s going on. Prices for solar generated electricity should be going down to customers but this article went on to say all the fires in these states will cause rates to go up. It’s confusing, I think.
