Renewable Power Generation Costs in 2017
International Renewable Energy Agency:
<p>Renewable energy has emerged as an increasingly competitive way to meet new power generation needs. This comprehensive cost report from the International Renewable Energy Agency (IRENA) highlights the latest trends for each of the main renewable power technologies, based on the latest cost and auction price data from projects around the world.

Download the <a href="http://irena.org/-/media/Files/IRENA/Agency/Publication/2018/Jan/IRENA_2017_Power_Costs_2018_summary.pdf?la=en&hash=6A74B8D3F7931DEF00AB88BD3B339CAE180D11C3">Executive Summary</a>.

Broadly, the study finds:<br />• Renewable power generation costs continue to fall and are already very competitive to meet needs for new capacity.<br />• Competitive procurement – including auctions – accounts for a small fraction of global renewable energy deployment. Yet these mechanisms are very rapidly driving down costs in new markets.<br />• Global competition is helping to spread the best project development practices, reducing technology and project risk and making renewables more cost-competitive than ever before.<br />• In developed countries, solar power has become cheaper than new nuclear power.</p>


Those aren't all the bullet points. And of course the point about nuclear is that it can provide a baseline supply, which solar can't.

After 61 Years, Interstate 95 Is Almost Complete - The Atlantic
State transportation officials agreed to christen the major interstates using the same scheme they used for the U.S. routes decades earlier: East-west highways would receive even numbers, while north-south highways would be odd. But U.S. routes started counting from the northeast, so to avoid confusion, the officials numbered interstates starting in the southwest. Thus, Interstate 95 runs north-south on the Atlantic Seaboard, roughly mirroring the old U.S. Route 1. (This is also why I-5 mirrors U.S. 101 along the Pacific.)
