i'm in the dark about wind and geothermal
swanson's law is probably positioning solar to make more economic sense
renewables are going to help but they have reliability, storage and scale challenge
as more intelligent people explore the needed transition, nuclear (SMRs) seem to make more sense for the base energy need
i think the US has declining CO2 emissions but we should incentivize and accelerate production of better "green" tech
globally there's a large population that are going to need much more energy as they modernize
solar will help, especially in certain areas with copious sunshine

it's a solar energy project
i'm not sure but i feel you might be trying to say something here and probably not about renewables
can you elaborate?

Israeli energy company Doral Renewables is spearheading the project, and will sell the power that’s generated at Mammoth to Columbus, Ohio-based American Electric Power. Doral is the owner-operator of over 400 energy facilities globally, and has three other projects underway in the US right now

A Solar Farm the Size of 1,000 Football Stadiums Is Going Up in Indiana

The transition away from fossil fuels and towards renewable energy sources is underway, with solar and wind farms popping up everywhere from the UK to China. A new project in the central US will pile on some significant green energy capacity, as the country’s biggest solar farm starts construction.

The Mammoth Solar farm, as it’s been appropriately dubbed, will be built in a rural area of Indiana about 80 miles south-east of Chicago. Once it’s complete, the farm will occupy 13,000 acres—that’s equivalent to about 1,000 football stadiums. Distributed throughout that space will be 2,850,000 solar panels, which will generate 1.65 gigawatts of electricity.

How big is that, exactly? Let’s do some comparisons. The biggest solar farm in the world is Bhadla Solar Park in India; it spans 14,000 acres and has a capacity of 2.25 GW. The biggest operational farm in the US is Solar Star in California, which cranks out 579 megawatts (0.58 GW). Mammoth falls somewhere in the middle, but will be almost three time as big as the California farm.

Israeli energy company Doral Renewables is spearheading the project, and will sell the power that’s generated at Mammoth to Columbus, Ohio-based American Electric Power. Doral is the owner-operator of over 400 energy facilities globally, and has three other projects underway in the US right now: Goonies Solar in Pennsylvania (so named because of the rocks that litter the piece of land where this farm is going up), Deere Acres Solar in Delaware, and Anthracite Ridge Wind, also in Pennsylvania.



This story would also fit well in this thread.

Because of the greed of the private sector in this country to sell our technology or have them steal it with the manufacturing with slave labor and their government backing.

We have bigger problems than that with no chip manufacturers in this country as we see today. Major National Security problem with China flexing its muscles.

there is a tree that has superior carbon capture too
empress, i think (there are non-invasive varieties)
maybe put some of those in the mix
super fast growth and can sequester up to 10x more co2 than other trees
