You might expand on why this is. Most won't know, but might
guess that it is due to the amortization of an expense item
with a relatively limited life.
Anything over twenty five cents per watt fully burdened installed panel
cost is a gasoline destroying net energy sink that is in no way green,
renewable, or sustainable.
You may have understated the "dispatch problem" too.
Both PV and wind can come on line, and go off line faster than
legacy plants can be efficiently throttled up and down.
I have relative doing engineering on this problem.
His company wouldn't have a product if connecting cyclic
RE to the grid was trivial.
Not one net watthour of pv solar electricity has ever been produced.
That depends on how far off the grid you are ...
... say, LEO.

The further off the grid you go, the HIGHER your cost per kilowatt hour.
And the more gasoline you destroy in your mythical quest towards greenosity.
No storage means is known that is remotely as cost effective as synchronous grid inversion.
