3.1.1 Fixed Cost Concepts for Power Generation | EBF
Unlike capital costs which are "fixed" (don't vary with the level of output), a plant's total operating cost depends on how much electricity the plant produces. The operating cost required to produce each MWh of electric energy is referred to as the "marginal cost." Fuel costs dominate the total cost of operation for fossil-fired power plants.
