Can Renewables Power An Entire City?

A way more interesting question would have been “Can unreliable electricity power an entire city?”. Because there is little doubt that you can run any city on hydropower if there is enough quality hydropower potential in the vicinity. It’s wonderfully dependable. Wind and solar are a very different game though. Their inherent intermittence is a challenge for a small community, they make them impossible for large agglomerations. I wish one or two cities went the full way and cut off all possibilities for any power sources that are not wind or solar. But they like to fake it through balancing. Talk is cheap.
