Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
... "the backup plant must be funded" does not give any indication exactly what it is that you think makes no sense.

If solar power panels are installed to the orientation that delivers power when the grid most needs it, the average utilization of back up power goes down. There will still be some days with little or no solar power delivered, so the back up capacity is entirely unaffected by the difference between orienting to maximum average output per day, tracking to deliver maximum available output per day, and orienting to deliver power most useful to the grid.

I've been accused of being a Marxist, yet while Harpo's my favourite, it's Groucho I'm always quoting. Odd, that.
