At our current Electricity (alone) consumptionEnough Power is wasted by transformers increasing and decreasing voltages (for residential, business, industry) to power an average home of 4.1 persons @ the average of 1Mwh per year for our entire nation with our current inefficiency.
The national average of about 850 Kwh / Month or .85 Mwh / month.
In Maine that could translate to 2 - 3 months of Electricity for some homeowners.
- The remaining energy essentially goes into Business and Industry lighting, machines, processes.
- 15% of our energy in the form of electricity goes to lighting.

Less than 1% of Renewable Energy benefit us in our homes as a Nation.
831,066,666 3Mwh turbines to reach 50% Green energy via Wind by 2025
At 2 acres / Mwh (6 acres per turbine replacement) for solar.
The land area of the lower 48 states is approximately 1.9 billion acres.
