California Offshore Nuclear Versus Wind Projects

Walter Horsting and David Wojick
Offshore wind project on calm ocean

WIND - 4.2 GWs = roughly 680 6MW turbines or 252 17MW turbines. Miles offshore with an expensive undersea power network. No thermal use for industry. Radar Interference is a security threat. Intermittent low-density Energy.

NUCLEAR - The least impacting energy source on nature: 21 Seaborg 200 MW CMSR pulled over barges or 5 GW CMSR power barges. Float them into any sea or river port near the local grid. 24-year return to the shipyard for recycling. Thermal Industrial and Desalination use.
