In 1988 while working on the Optimized expansion of network and Master plan we worked on calculating how much it costs to bring one KW of power to a consumer. Swedish engineers also worked on it with me and the Figure was 2850 USD for one KW of power to be supplied to a consumer- that is the investment required  in generation/ transmission/ distribution etc

Currently this figure could be any where between 4000 to 4500 USD.Now no Renewable energy of any type is that costly not even Fission Energy if it ever comes.

On purely economic terms It is far cheaper to resort to distributed generation based on renewables / natural gas generators etc
