Urban turbines struggle to turn a profit-News-UK-Science-TimesOnline

Wind Vs nuclear a no brainer?

Urban turbines struggle to turn a profit-News-UK-Science-TimesOnline: "

Having spent £13,000 on installing a wind turbine at his home, John Large is disappointed at the return on his investment, which amounts to 9p a week.

At this rate, it is calculated, it will take 2,768 years for the electricity generated by the turbine to pay for itself, by which time he will be past caring about global warming."

My be John Large should opt for Nulcear

  1. Although Dr John Large is not always popular with the nuclear lobby, he is actually a very good nuclear engineer; indeed he was one of Lord Walter Marshall's PhD students at UKAEA and later did a great deal of UKAEA sponsored research work on the Magnox and AGR programmes.
