  2. 585 hectare of land cleared for 275 MW of electricity. This amounts to about 25metre x 25metre for 10kW; that is roughly what an average existing house roof can supply. Is this a good idea?

    Do we want centralised, corporate controlled, electricity generation or distributed, consumer controlled, electricity generation?
