100% Solar = 100 miles x 100 miles

How many square miles of solar panels would it take to power the U.S.? It’s smaller than you think - Inovateus Solar

“If you wanted to power the entire United States with solar panels, it would take a fairly small corner of Nevada or Texas or Utah,” he explained. “You only need about 100 miles by 100 miles of solar panels to power the entire United States…. The batteries you [would] need to store the energy, so you have 24/7 power, is 1 mile by 1 mile. One square-mile.”

why this should not be a national #1 energy goal?

like JFKs "go to the moon"
