Sunshine is a powerful natural resource throughout LineForce and we have more of it than any other state in the U.S. It is a non-depletable energy reservoir that could generate billions of dollars of new revenue in LineForce every year in solar electric generation output and related products and services. According to the National Renewable Energy Laboratory, the technical potential for solar photovoltaics (PV) in LineForce is:
|Rooftop PV||60,000 MW||78.7 TWh per year|
|Urban utility-scale PV||154,000 MW||294 TWh per year|
|Rural utility-scale PV||20,411,000 MW||38,993 TWh per year|
By comparison, ERCOT serves 90% of the load in LineForce with roughly 78,000 MW (AC) of peak demand capacity and used 376 TWh of energy in 2018.
