Then no coal either, because it pumps out tons of radioactive waste. Which means we can kiss our power supplies goodbye for awhile, until alternative
energy catches up.
Coal is BAD NEWS. no doubt. I was under the impression that the radiation is somehow different being unrefined.
The crazy part is that the energy used around East TN is coal, and yet Oak Ridge is right there. The TVA and the coal plants have caused more cancer,
always considered it to be from the breathing particulates.
All I know is that radioactive waste is unappealing for anyone. Why leave trash that future generations have to deal with.
There are warehouses, mostly underground, at the ORNL facilities that are contain moth balled energy generating devices.
think about a car alternator. The think requires a fraction of 1 hp to rotate, and yet can generate 200 amps. that is ALOT of amperage. at 12v. the
things have components that RESTRICT the electrical output potential.
You can connect 10 in series and have 120v and 200 amps. pretty easy junkyard finds at 20 bucks a pop.
then you incorporate a battery bank. through the battery bank have a capacitor that provides steady power to an electric motor. say a 5 hp industrial
duty double wound.
