Subbituminous coal power plant: 1153
Bituminous coal power plant with imported coal: 949
Subbituminous coal heating plant: 729
Bituminous coal heating plant with imported coal: 622
Natural gas combined cycle power plant: 428

Multicristalline solar cell (with current energy supply for manufacturing): 101
Natural gas block heating power plant: 49
