How many more of these plants would have to be built to replace the lost 15,000 MW of power?

Given that coal would have to brought to these facilities, how much do you think the cost of electricity would be (remember, we currently pay about 5 cents per KWH)

What about wind power?

How many turbines like those pictured above would have to be placed on the Oregon cosat (a windy place) to generate 15,000 MW of power? (assumes coast line of 400 miles)

What about solar?

How much land in a sunny place (eastern oregon or eastern washington) would have to be covered to generate 15,000 MW of replacement power? (remember, we have to collect more than 15,000 MW of power because we have to operate at night; just assume that excess power is fed in the day to some energy storage system)
