I saw this article a couple of days ago, which seemed to suggest some seriously cheap prices in the US - wind ($18/MWh), wind + storage ($21/MWh), PV + storage ($36/MWh) and wind/PV + storage ($31/MWh). But I found it a bit confusing. However another article today seems to confirm incredibly cheap bids for a 2023 contract. Actually the 2nd article might be better to read first, but I'll post them in order.

‘Incredible’ low prices for renewables-plus-storage in Xcel’s solicitation

Cheers Dan. You may recall me pulling my hair out some time back, trying to make sense of the Lazard costs of storage, as they were extremely well laid out and detailed ....... but didn't seem to be even close to reality. This article explains why.
