Do we have any overall or per KW cost info?

I wonder why in prime solar areas, as those in Luna and Hildago counties in south western New Mexico, where there seems to be a very considerable activity by as many as thirty individuals and companys trying to tie up very large parcels of land, as I under stand it, hoping to generate solar power cheap enough to negotiate power purchase agreements, cheap enough to transmit to California. I wonder why go to this extent to produce power cheap enough to sell it for very long distance, sustaining a considerable power loss in transmission? When manufacturing company's move all over the world seeking low cost power, why would it not make sense if the land is cheap, and the optimum area for solar production, rather than wholesale it at a very low price, why not offer competitive land prices to manufacturers, to move to that area, and guarantee them a price per kw, guaranteed for perhaps fifteen or twenty years, and be better off than struggling to offer low ball prices to power company's ?

“I wonder why ...”

Consider for a moment Dick that polices to promote renewable energy by loons in California are really stupid and worse for the environment than a coal with no emissions controls.

The first concept is solar power is not cheap, it is mandated. Industry moves to place where there are reasonable mandates. Several large energy users are locating in places like Idaho and New Mexico. Also many renewable energy projects are locating in the west outside of California. States other than California get the jobs and the property taxes.

Generating projects put electricity into the grid. Consumers use electricity from the grid. Only the lawyers can tell where the electricity came from. If you consume electricity generated under a gigh price contract, you pay more.

If there happens to be a 1000 MWe coal plant between you and your expensive power, guess where your power really comes from?

Kit, I wish you would quit being such a prick.

You seem to have some useful information to share, but you are so insulting to others that I just don't want to read your stuff.

Would you please make a concerted effort to play nice with others?

It would make this site a lot more useful and enjoyable if we could discuss topics without throwing crap-balls at each other.

Dick, with HVDC (high voltage direct current) transmission lines we can move lots of power long distances with minimal losses.

Here's something on the Pacific DC Intertie that moves power on the west coast.

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Pacific_DC_Intertie

The plan might be to move power from where it is cheap to produce north or west to larger cities. Or it might be to connect up with the transmission lines which will hook Texas wind farms eastward.

Some day we are likely to see the Pacific Intertie hooked eastward as we connect the nation. Lots of sun in the Southwest during the day, lots of wind in the Great Plains at night....

Here is a solution for you Bob. When you see my name at the bottom of a post, just skip past it. Clearly there are loons in California that actively promote bad energy policy and I will continue to point that out. I will never know.

Quote Kit P: "When you see my name at the bottom of a post, just skip past it."

Exactly.

An incredible thing about this new technology is the simplicity of its design, and its ingenious use of basic principles of physics to create energy.

Thanks for your excellent post.
