Do you have a source? The project website still says "The project is scheduled for completion in late 2019."

I saw people on Facebook claim it would use 46.25MW/day at 100% capacity. I think they pulled that from the wiki page.

46.25 * 365 = 16,881.25MW/year
which is 405,150MWh per year, so solar plant on the dirt out front would provide 1/63 of the power required
