This Could be Big

Since we're on a green tech roll here, here's excellent news from MIT about a possible electrolysis technique that will allow for 24/7 solar power.

If the follow-through tests on this new technique work out, this could make solar a much bigger and more cost-effective player in competing with nuclear power as an excellent alternative to traditional CO2-emitting energy sources!

To that end, I am trying to find a good apples-to-apples comparison of costs per megawatt hour for nuclear vs. coal vs. solar vs. wind. If any of my massive readership could tease out a good source of that information, I'd be eternally grateful.
