Indeed. And the CO2 emissions from both are small. The absolute difference is negligible. To make this quantitative, consider the value of the difference, per KwH, if CO2 emissions are valued at (say) $100/tonne. This is in contrast to fossil fuel-fired electricity generation, where the effect of that CO2 tax would be large.
