Here's a breakdown of his vision:
1.3% Geothermal
0.1% Tidal
0.4% Wave
3.0% Hydro
7.2% Rooftop PV
30.7% Utility PV
7.3% Concentrated solar
19.1% Offshore wind
30.9% Onshore wind.
Roadmap to Nowhere puts the reality of the necessary hardware into perspective
1 million 2.5 MW wind turbines and 5,000 Solarstar sized 500MW solar farms together covering 130,000 square miles. $15 trillion. We already have $20 trillion in national debt that will never get paid back. And there would still be days long selctive black outs due to a very minimal amount of storage as part of the plan. And the electrolytic Hydrogen conversion of all heavy machinery and transport is just wishful thinking. As is the underground thermal storage system that is part of the roadmap. ect.
