CM was asked by a reader what blanketing 50% of Manly in solar panels would power. Recall Democrat Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez’s Rikers Island plan (previous post) to install panels on only 25% of the area. New climate alarmist Member for Warringah, Zali Steggall would need to think the following mathematics:
34,398 households in Manly.
Manly is 1,384 acres in size. So 50% coverage = 692 acres.
As 1,000 households can be powered by 32 acres, 692 acres would technically power 21,600 homes. What the other 12,800 homes will do is unclear at this point!!
In order to go 100% renewable for all households, 80% of Manly would need to be drenched in solar panels.
It is only fair to grant the wishes of the electorate.
