Supplementary notes

* According to the source, hydroelectric and hybrid solar PV generating assets are assumed have seasonal and diurnal storage, respectively, so that they can be dispatched within a season or a day, but overall operation is limited by resource availablility by site and season for hydroelectric and by daytime for hybrid solar PV.
** Technology is assumed to be photovoltaic (PV) with single-axis tracking. The solar hybrid system is a single-axis PV system coupled with a four-hour battery storage system. Costs are expressed in terms of net AC power available to the grid for the installed capacity.
