On a sunny day, Germany gets 40% of its electricity from the sun.
On a windy day, Samsø, a small Danish island, gets 140% of its electricity from wind. In truth, eleven turbines do the trick for Samsø, but still those numbers are worlds away from where the debate is in the U.S. Supplying Samsø with electricity isn’t quite the same as powering a large manufacturing center. Then again, Denmark overall gets at least 20% of its electricity from wind, and Germany is in a different league altogether.
Are there other numbers like that out there? Solar costs have plummeted in the past five years. Who has taken the most advantage of that?
