= 1 square mile of solar PV in every 6.29 square miles of New Hampshire's land surface (excluding surface water)

New Hampshire Energy Consumption Estimates 2014

2

Note; The replacement of gasoline combustion vehicles replaced by electric vehicles would have net reduction of energy effect of approximately 2,390 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 20,943,164 mWh's annually and 16,371 installed megawatts on 98,226 acres. Currently New Hampshire consumes 632,589,043 gallons of gasoline annually which is equivalent to 23,152,759 megawatt hours. Electric vehicles similar to the Chevy Volt would only utilize about 2,209,595 megawatt hours for the same rated miles when compared to an automobile combustion ratio of 25 mpg for a total of 15,814,726,075 miles driven in New Hampshire. This would also have the affect of reducing the consumption of gasoline in terms of energy by 572,217,595 gallons of gasoline. This would also reduce the equivalent of 5,521,899 tons of carbon dioxide emissions. One gallon of U.S. automotive gasoline is equivalent to 36.6 kilowatt hours of electricity.

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.

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 New  Hampshire's minimum annual ideal weather 30-year monthly-averaged useful daily hours of solar concentration.  These conversions would be New Hampshire'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.
