I understand that selling power back to the grid is an attractive thought, though who is going to make the initial investment to follow through with that? It would have to be *heavily* subsidized and not a very consistent source of power. I would rather spend my tax dollars on nuclear energy, which produces large quantities of electricity at a consistent, dependable rate.
What problems do you currently have with nuclear power? Why the reservations about it?
That's why it'll take some ingenuity to get it done. It'll take lots of smaller innovations to make it consistent and dependable.
I don't have anything against nuclear power nor am I opposed to opening new plants. I'm just trying to look at it from a bigger picture and realize that simply building new plants isn't a long term, permanent solution. If nuclear power can be used in the short term to stabilize the mess we're in I'm all for it.
Although nuclear power is safe, it's not all rainbows and lollipops.
And Meat, don't you dare call me a 'they'. :wink:
