A 500-MW power plant operating at 90% percent capacity would, “like a nuclear or natural gas plant,” power 530,000 homes — but New York Solar “produces only 12.6 percent of its theoretical capacity,” enough power for 79,000 homes”, 37 percent less than advertised.” And that’s just 14%. is based on questionable assumptions and questionable mathematics.” We must keep reliable energy sources, such as “our nuclear and natural gas plants,” to ensure that we have “the energy to meet our needs.”
