Nope.
Correct me if I'm wrong but, whatever "Capacity" is for solar is
hit on a sunny day at noon. The rest of the day it's generating
only a tiny fraction of that capacity -- and pretty much ZERO
all night long...

The Reason Renewables Can't Power Modern Civilization Is Because They Were
Never Meant To

Could have fooled us, by the way the screechers here talk.

Over the last decade, journalists have held up Germany's renewables energy
transition, the Energiewende, as an environmental model for the world.

"Many poor countries, once intent on building coal-fired power plants to bring
electricity to their people, are discussing whether they might leapfrog the
fossil age and build clean grids from the outset," thanks to the Energiewende,
wrote a New York Times reporter in 2014.

With Germany as inspiration, the United Nations and World Bank poured billions
into renewables like wind, solar, and hydro in developing nations like Kenya.

But then, last year, Germany was forced to acknowledge that it had to delay its
phase-out of coal, and would not meet its 2020 greenhouse gas reduction
commitments. It announced plans to bulldoze an ancient church and forest in
order to get at the coal underneath it.

The addition of utility-scale solar capacity is expected to set a new record
by adding 15.4 GW of capacity to the US grid in 2021, the US Energy
Information Administration (EIA) announced today.

Solar leads the 2021 pack with 39% of total new US electricity generating
capacity. It’s followed by wind (31%, or 12.2 GW), natural gas (16%, or 6.6
GW), battery storage (11%, or 4.3 GW), nuclear (3%, or 1.1 GW), and Other, at
0.2 GW.
