Local Mini Nuclear Reactors to Power US Homes within 5 Years: Will it actually happen? Who knows? Is it a good idea? Tougher question.
A New Mexico based company have started production on hot tub-sized nuclear generators designed to power communities across America.
[…] Powered by low-enriched uranium fuel, each Hyperion Power Module will produce enough clean, safe and environmentally friendly energy to reliably power 20,000 standard American homes for 10cents per watt.
[…] To add to their eco credentials, each module will produce a mere softball-sized amount of recyclable waste every five years and will release nothing in the way of greenhouse gas emissions, unlike ‘traditional’ fossil fuels.
