Re: How about

You are close to being 100% right.

You are missing one essential thing, storage of the power you generated.

So add a humgous Tesla System to the DC and you are good to go.

Doing thos sort of thing does cost a lot of money, serious money. You only have to look at the size of the PV array that Apple has put in in Az to see that.

50Mw of power generation is serious grunt.

Kinda makes my puny 5kw array seem like childs play.

Love of hate Apple, they do seem to be leading the pack in going green. Well, they should they have enough money to do it. But this is a long term vision and requires the company to stick a big finger up at the short termism of Wall St. MS could easily do the same.
