For one powerplant that couldn't power a small city.
Did you even read your own article, or just the headline?
Of course Shreek didn't read the article, that would require comprehension.
you'll have to pardon my ignorance, but what the conversion from acres to USD?
Depends on where you are buying the land, of course...and that is just a fraction of the cost for building a solar farm.
Maybe you should read and comprehend the link that Shreek posted, he obviously didn't.
I will help you: Conservative estimates predict that it will take 12-14,000,000 acres of solar panels to power the US, which is a space roughly the size of New Hampshire, Vermont, Rhode Island and Long Island combined on the low end or West Virginia on the high end.
Good luck with that.

You're the dumbass who said solar can't compete with coal because the problem was real estate.
The article proves it's nonsense. Want more?
"In 2009, they calculated that we'd only only have to cover an area a bit bigger than California with solar panels to power the entire world with solar energy. And just to power the United States? A few counties in Texas."
