US electric power consumption
USA produced 2008 4316 TWh electric power for 305.548.183 inhabitants. This makes an average consumption per inhabitant of 14125 kWh per year.
So you would assume for 1 million inhabitants about 14 TWh electric power consumption. Why proposes Applied Materials only an 80 MW photovoltaic factory? Assuming 1500 kWh yearly yield for 1 kW photovoltaic in the southern US, it looks like this with a 80 MW photovoltaic factory:
In this example is the 80 MW PV-factory middle 2010 ordered, after 18 month starts the production. In the year 2035 are only 20% of the 14 TWh electric power consumption produced by photovoltaic. Why not more? Why does Applied Materials not propose a 400 MW photovoltaic factory?
Here is the reason, it are the same percent shares like in the storage study of PEGE 2008.
