Updating data[edit]

The most recent data in the article seems to be from 2012 to 2013. This article needs to be updated. MaynardClark (talk) 18:34, 3 December 2015 (UTC)

Math errors?[edit]

"Massachusetts has the potential for generating 799,344 million kWh/year (799.3 TWh/y) from 184,076 MW (0.184 TW) of offshore wind farms and 82,205 million kWh (82.2 TWh) from 51,568 MW (0.052 TW) of photovoltaic solar farms, and 26,000 million kWh (26 TWh) (47% of consumption) from 22,500 MW (0.023 TW) of rooftop photovoltaics."

0.184TW + 82.2TWh + 0.052TW + 26TWh != 799.3TWh/y

The units are all different, maybe when multiplying them by solar hours and other unnamed values that adds up?

I tried looking up the first few of those number in the citations and didn't find any of them. — Preceding unsigned comment added by Skintigh (talkcontribs) 19:25, 20 March 2018 (UTC)
