Question asked by a person?
you’re also the chairman of the solar city, building out a network of solar panels and solar systems and I can see why solar can make sense in a place like California where it’s sunny all the time, homes are big a lot of roof space you can lay out all the solar panels but in a place like Hong Kong you know densely packed vertical cities
how can solar make sense here?
Elon Musk Replied: yeah. I think it’s true that in dense cities rooftop solar is not gonna solve the energy need then what you can do is have ground mount solar power/ let’s say near Hong Kong tapping into the existing power lines that are coming in and so you can supply a Hong Kong with solar power we just need to be coming from a land area that’s not too far away and it’s worth night it’s only a matter China has actually an enormous landing area much of which is hardly occupied at all with given that the Chinese population is so concentrated along the coast
once you go inland it the population in some cases is remarkably tiny so you could easily power all of China with solar.
