an 80-megawatt solar project in the county of Newell between Calgary and Medicine Hat, will produce more than 195,000 megawatt-hours (MWh) of renewable energy once completed, enough to power more than 18,000 Canadian homes for a year.
Never mind that there is no sun at night and almost none during winter. Ontario is currently getting less than 1% of their energy from solar.
Saying that you can power a home in Canada full time with solar, is like saying “my car has 280,000 miles on it, so I can take it to the moon.” Totals tell you nothing about reliability or usefulness for a particular task.
Meanwhile, Bill Gates wants to block the sun so that earth’s surface receives even less solar energy. The colder temperatures would increase demand for energy, and the reduced sunlight would decrease the supply.
