1 kWh = 1 Person Day.
Coal makes it possible to have 100 person days for < $10.
That saves lives. That makes it possible to get more done with less people. We can harvest more grain, extract more oil, process more goods and make them available cheaper to more people. Less people have to be in harms way (those miners don't swing axes anymore).
Cheap power saves lives.
