What about us?
Area = 65,610 km^2
Projected peak demand
2020 - 3,500 MW
2025 - 4,000 MW
3,969,000 housing units
20% of all housing has no roof access
15-20%
20-25%
Aim for peak matching in 2025 - 4,000 MW
3 hours morning peak + 5 hours evening peak
= 8 hours of peak demand per day
5 hours of peak solar production from 10 AM to 3 PM
1,000 W/m^2 of solar energy at 15% efficiency
= 150 W/m^2
Calculated area required for solar cell installation to meet sustained demand =
42.6 km^2
(<0.1 % of land)

What about us?
~ 50 km^2
Assume average housing unit consists of 25 m^2 of roof area
80% of all housing units have access to roof tops ~ 3,200,000 housing units
Calculated total area of roof tops with access ~ 80 km^2
42.6 km^2 required out of 80 km^2 of available roof top access
Average solar panel size ~1.5 m^2 =
28,400,000
solar panels
National Goal
Convince 3.2 M housing unit owners to have
ONE
or more of these
