Description (excerpt):

This report quantifies the impacts of renewables in ERCOT on wholesale clearing prices and avoided fuel costs, water use, and emissions by comparing how the market would have performed with and without wind and solar from 2010 to August 2022. This analysis found that  the build out of renewables from 2010 and beyond has yielded significant benefits and savings to Texans in the ERCOT service area, cumulatively worth as much as $106 billion.
