How are you getting that 2,079,720,000 KWHrs in 24 hours is 24.07 MW?

EDIT: This is too perfect. 1053r calls out journalists for making a basic math mistake. In doing so, he makes a basic math mistake. I ask him about it, then get downvoted by HN.




2,079,720,000 / 3600 / 24 = 24070.8333 KW, or 24.07 MW.


Why are you dividing by 3600? The numerator is already in kWh units (kW hours), it's not kW seconds.


Yup! Sorry! Will attempt to edit original. Should have said 86GW.
