The Southeast dose face some interesting challenges. GA is very unfriendly to both mass production windmills, no stable winds, and solar plants, clouds, lots of clouds. Nuclear Power and drawing power from out west during the day are the only viable options I can truly see while keeping power below 15 cents a kwh.
This leads to another problem. The west coast is not going to be able to draw power from the east coast for any reasonable amount of draw in the morning hours.
Batteries seem to be the best stop gap, but prices are going to have to come down.
So, did I miss how it was going to be paid for or how much it was going to cost? Certainly, it's not going to be free, nor will the labor be free.
With borrowed money, the way everything else is paid for. Of course, when the sources of money to lend dry up (like right now) a lot of these projects (along with other types of construction, infrastructure, etc.) get put on hold.
