In this story on solar power, we see the following facts in a single paragraph:
Oita-ken will have a new 81.5 megawatt solar plant, which is 30,000 homes-worth.
Oita-ken already has a 70 megawatt solar plant, which is 70,000 homes-worth.
Osaka will soon have a 19.6 megawatt solar plant, which is 5,700 homes-worth.
One doesn’t even need a calculator to notice that 10 megawatts less can supply over twice as many homes, or that the Osaka one is a quarter of the size of the first, but can only supply a fifth of the houses. There really ought to be a standard way of expressing solar power (peak or averaged or potential) and a standard house power consumption.
Oh, and Happy New Year to all (bar one) of my readers!
