This installed PV solar energy estimate does not include land cost, taxes, additional infrastructure, or any other cost.  And, additional at-load losses when the solar collection minimum service hours can not be met because of less than ideal weather, nor the cost of future growth.

Electric Power Net Generation by Primary Energy
  Source and Industry Sector - March 2016

(Megawatthours)

Note; The replacement of gasoline combustion vehicles replaced by electric vehicles would have net reduction of energy effect of approximately 777 megawatts per hour.  (Example; Chevy Volt automobile with a rating of 100 miles per 38 kilowatt hours with an 80% recharge in 20 minutes.) This would have a net reduction of 6,813,823 mWh's annually and 25,198 installed megawatts on 151,188 acres. Currently Alaska consumes 251,432,568 gallons of gasoline annually which is equivalent to 9,202,432 megawatt hours. Electric vehicles similar to the Chevy Volt would only utilize about 2,388,609 megawatt hours for the same rated miles when compared to an automobile combustion ratio of 25 mpg for a total of 6,285,814,200 miles driven in Alaska.  This would also have the affect of reducing the consumption of gasoline in terms of energy by 186,170,027 gallons of gasoline. This would also reduce the equivalent of 1,796,540 tons of carbon dioxide emissions. One gallon of U.S. automotive gasoline is equivalent to 36.6 kilowatt hours of electricity.


1 U.S. gallon of gasoline weighs 6.073 lbs. The combustion of 1 U.S. gallon (3.8 L) of gasoline produces 8.74 kilograms (19.3 lb) of carbon dioxide (2.3 kg/l),

Solar PV to replace all of Alaska's spent fuels:  7,094  sq miles​                                                                                            = 1 square mile of solar PV in every 80.62 square miles of Alaska's land surface (excluding surface water)

Alaska Energy Consumption Estimates 2014

The above megawatt estimated requirements are for the replacement of energy and fuels consumed for electricity, heating and cooling, gasoline transportation fuels converted to its electric megawatt equivalent utilizing solar PV. We utilize Alaska's minimum annual ideal weather 30-year monthly-averaged useful daily hours of solar concentration.  These conversions would be Alaska's approximate energy demand equivalents in terms of energy, land, and cost.  For this conversion data set, one solar PV megawatt is equal to approximately six acres.  However, other solar PV installations are currently utilizing up to ten or more acres per installed megawatt. There are thermal solar installations utilizing 44 acres per installed megawatt.  ("resulting in a land-to-power ratio of 44 acres (180,000 m  ) per 1 megawatt.") ref; Thermal Power Towers - "Power Tower Designs"  wikipedia

480,695,185 megawatthours divided by 8,760 hours per year = 54,874 megawatts per hour averaged 

x 13.79 (multplier)  = 756,712 mW p/hr minimum under ideal weather averaged - accessible with battery storage
x 6 Acres  = 4,540,272  acres
= 1 acre of solar PV in every 80.62  acres
= 7.93  acres of every sq mile of Alaska's land surface.  (excluding surface water acreage)
