    Tom, of course you are. You obviously haven't the faintest idea of the physics of what you are describing.

    I guess you have no response. Physics prevents it from working. I have been quite polite to you. If you want to be an ass,, so be it. I suggest sinking all of your life's savings into this idea. Maybe I can buy you a burger when you wind up homeless because you did not study.

    Hey dumbass...if river water moves from it's normal banks through a narrow channel, does it speed up? yes or no?

    But back to the subject. Both solar and wind have huge untapped potential, which is what hydro now lacks in this nation. We have already built the good sites.

    The world’s biggest solar project is going to get underway in Saudi Arabia, according a plan whipped up by the country’s sovereign wealth fund and the Japanese technology conglomerate SoftBank.

    The partners are joint investors in the $100 billion Vision Fund, the world’s largest private equity fund, which will provide the initial cash for the first phase of the scheme.

    Here’s what you need to know about the project.

    How big is “biggest”?
    SoftBank and the Saudis say the solar project will be able to generate around 7.2 gigawatts of power in 2019, and 200 gigawatts by 2030.

    Today, all the solar deployments around the world generate around 400 gigawatts (which is slightly more than is generated by nuclear, incidentally.) The largest installation at the moment, the Tengger Desert Solar Park in China, generates just over 1.5 gigawatts. So yes, this is a big deal.

    Plans for the World's Biggest-Ever Solar Power Project Are Underway. Here's What You Need to Know.

    Doesn't sound as if solar is taking that big of a hit.

    Solar and wind power projects are increasing in the area around the Mekong River in Southeast Asia.

    One energy expert said that the developments call into question the financial viability of major hydo-electric dams in the area.

    Brian Eyler is Director of the Stimson Center’s Southeast Asia Program. He spoke about the increase in solar power development at the third Mekong River Commission Summit in Cambodia’s Siem Reap province.

    He said, in the last six months, Cambodia, Vietnam, Thailand and Laos have signed agreements to produce 6,000 megawatts of electricity from wind and solar.

    Eyler said, “In January 2017, my team visited with Cambodia’s energy plant making the suggestion of incorporating more solar and wind into the power development plan. That was basically off the table in January 2017.”

    He said that Cambodia has reorganized its energy industry in about a year. The country has planned to deploy solar power production

    Solar Projects Increase in the Mekong River Area

    Looks like other nations like solar, also.
