    Electricity disrupted: US-based solar + storage at $0.028/kWh w/ world’s largest (again) proposed solar power plant

    [​IMG]

    Solar thermal + storage is trying to come to the United States in form of the largest solar power plant in the world. SolarReserve has proposed a 2GW Solar Thermal + Molten Salt power plant for the State of Nevada.

    The company has already built a smaller version of this plant. The new plant, ‘Sandstone Energy X’, will be built for $5 billion including the molten salt storage. This would make Sandstone Energy X among the lowest priced electricity generators on the planet.

    "will produce greater than 9,000,000 MWhs of electricity – enough to meet 25%(!!!) of Nevada’s annual use."

    9 million MWhs, am I reading that correctly?

    I think they just multiplied 2GW by 12 hours and 365 days. A better estimate would be 6 solar-hours per day and 4,300,000 MWh.

    Feel free to get your electricity from your own off-grid solar system. And then get rid of your cats, windows, cars, pesticides; all of which individually kill 1000 times more birds.

    Thank you kindly.
