This spreadsheet should be considered a VERY preliminary assessment of the feasibility of meeting the Renewable Taos goals.  It does not imply that RT believes that all of Taos County’s energy needs can be met by PV.  At some point, it will be updated with newer costs of large scale PV systems, and with the costs and benefits of other systems such as storage, and concentrating solar power with thermal storage.
