You have no idea what you are talking about there, boy
First and foremost: To produce even just 100kW of electricity, you would need as much as 2000 solar panels.
To even fuel the needs of a small city, you would consume kilometers after kilometers of land for a solar farm.
Secondly: most solar farms are located in remote desert regions precisely because of their need for vast amount of land.
Due to this sheer distance, solar farms need large amount of cables to transfer their energy
And guess what?
Due to resistance, electricity can lose as much as 30% of their power and this loss would only increase the further the distance
All for a solar farm that works only for half a day and does not work in overcast.
Same logic applies to wind farms that must be placed in windy places that cliffs and mountains - very remote regions for very specific requirements with very inefficient distances.
Mind I remind you that solar farms are known for toasting birds right in the sky and windfarms are known for destroying migratory birds?
A single nuclear reactor consume just about 500m area of land and can be placed right in the middle of a city thus ensuring that the energy transfer would be unhindered.
So please. Shut the fuck up
