As of 1991,the Luz Corporation's solar-heliostat-thermal power generating facility in California's Mojave Desert,was competitive with average residential consumer electric pricing,at 8-cents/kWh.
The national residential consumer price at the time was 8.3-cents/kWh,with a range of 4.2-cents,to 14-cents.
