Ah, let's put power generations on mountains and base it on weather. Great idea. I love getting stuck because the fuel is based on something that never restricted me.
The point is that independence is about reducing dependencies, not having different dependencies.
Norway is small. Tiny. Compact. Welcome to non-representative.
Do you have any idea just how many solar panels you would need in order to power the rockies? Think about it! So many peaks, so many mountains, so much weather to resist. These are hard installations, over very long distances from cities. With difficult machinery too. And very harsh climates. You want that bolted panel to stay? Great. What about the huge battery to hold the power? And what about all of the lines to move the power from the light side to the dark side of the mountain?
Or, you could have a big tank. A big heavy box. Installed once. Virtually zero maintenance. Underground, so weather doesn't matter. Then a truck brings fuel, and dumps it in.
See, you're missing the big point. My car can get there. That's the reason my car gets there. If my car can get there, then a truck can also get there. As long as "there" can fit a big fuel tank, and a small pump, then we're done.
Any other solution that you can possibly describe, will need more than my car needs. That makes it unreliable to my car. Plain and simple.
