I wonder how many at Princeton have solar on their roof and drive an EV.....


Homey, sorry I missed this post.

Yep, Princeton has a 27 acre solar farm (maxes out at 4.5 megawatts) that provides between 5-6% of the campus needs.

Hmmm, if 27 acres provides only 5-6%, then at this rate, around 500 acres would be required to supply 100%.

Darn, there's that power density problem again (kWh produced per acre).

So none of the researchers have home solar or an EV?

Homey, could not verify what they have personally, but I bet they recycle their empty White Claw cans.

It does not surprise met that a hoity toity ivy league university that churns generations of pontificators that speak about all things woke (aka elites), has such a teensy weensy solar footprint. Why spend their endowment bucks to go 100% solar, just wait and pretty soon the Feds will start giving them away. Right?

Fair enough. My local university has similar size system. Although it is all on top of the buildings and parking structures. ZERO additional land use.

Not saying this is the end all solution.... however as more people and businesses participate it will go a long way with NO additional land use, NO additional transmission lines.

Enough Santa Claus with incentives... need more Grinch with mandates. One watt per square foot required for all new residential and all additions is my suggestion. Similar for business.

“I’m from the Gov’t and I’’m here to help (minus their gifted subsidies??)”… We’ll, with this current incarnation of overly pedigreed (pampered) guru’’s - are these the same Wizards of Smarts that have created 90% of our current maladies (incl. forest management, ‘theories’ et al) based on faux promises??…With a demise of Adults in the room, it’s kinda difficult for me to see how any real solutions (devoid of their Purple Unicorn ‘Scientism’) might materialize, especially since they’re not interested in objective findings - JMO, but based on aged results based real world observation…

That's nothing MEX - lakes in Canada have now banned riding your snowmobile on them when they are liquid unless it is electric
