Solar: Even Worse Than What I Said

Earlier today, I pointed out that using some generous numbers, a solar wind power plant could provide power for about 179 homes (and I also pointed out why this is a misleading comparison).

The Triangle Business Journal article I was referring to stated that the 900 kilowatt solar plant would generate power for about 800 homes.

I was looking around for some more details on the project, and saw this article, which is about the same 900 kilowatt solar power plant (as far as I can tell).  The article says the solar power plant would generate power for 120 homes (this is a number from the developer itself, O2 Energies.  Strata Solar, which I discussed earlier, was a contractor on the project).

Bottom line: I guess I was being too nice when I provided my 179 homes number.
