I assume the claimed “30 Megawatt” Chinook Solar array in Fitzwilliam produces 30 megawatts at noon on sunny days. If so, it will average only 6 Mw over a 24-hour day.

If it takes 100 acres to get only 6 Mw of electricity, that means it will require 167 times the acreage, or 16,700 acres, to generate the 1,000 Megawatts of a large, electric generating facility such as Seabrook.

At 640 acres to a square mile, such a “green” replacement would cover over 26 square miles.

Which state parks do we clear-cut for such greeniness?
