...According to the engineering plans, the solar farm would occupy about 1,400 acres along the Racine County line in the town of Paris and could be connected to a storage system that could deliver 50 to 200 megawatt-hours of electricity....
That's seven acres/megawatt.
Earlier, we did a little math on the topic of Green Weenie Energy, because Tokin'Tony is all fired up *cough* about that. We learned that Wisconsin uses about 5,300,000 Mw of juice. A commenter suggested that our acres-per-generated-Mw number was too generous, and that is apparently the case.
But that leaves a small problem: in order to gin up 5,300,000 Mw of sunshine-juice, the generators will have to occupy 35,000,000 acres.
