Solar Energy and Nuclear Power; Which is Better?

ABEST1 Solar Energy and Nuclear Power; Which is Better?

It is given that Nuclear Energy is a real breakthrough in energy production, whether it is fusion or fission nuclear energy produces enormous amounts of energy that are powering major cities in progressive countries like Japan, Russia, France, United States and a lot more.

However, Nuclear plants comes with a hefty price tag, the construction of a plant can cost hundreds of millions of dollars if not billions and the real problem is the maintenance and security risks that it involves. Scientists and nuclear engineers are needed to run the plant and the plant produces substantial amounts of radioactive materials which creates serious environmental problems. The waste is a lifelong commitment which keeps will piling up, and where do you get rid of it afterwards?

Security issues in nuclear power plants are in two aspects. The 1st is within the operation; it releases radioactive materials thus the reason you need a vast open unpopulated space for the construction and operation. Take the Fukushima plant in Japan for an instance, in the case it was seriously damaged the casualties are unimaginable!2nd is the wastes; if in any case it leaks out it can alter our eco-system before we even know it – affecting marine life, all our wild life and YOU!

To sum it up, it costs a gazillion dollar to construct, requires heavy operational management, Waste disposal issues and numerous security risks. – Not so bad eh? Keeping it is quite rubbish!

On the other hand; Solar energy doesn’t contain any of the drawbacks a nuclear plant has. It is cheaper – much cheaper, renewable and clean. Clean in a holistic sense, zero carbon emission and zero waste  by- products.

If you are to compare the energy production between the two, solar energy would be a step behind the latter. But if you are to compare the two in dollar per kilowatt then there isn’t much of a difference. The key to the solar success is decentralisation………. Homes can produce their own electricity in a safe and greener way.

But the greatest benefits of solar panels would be dramatic electric bill reduction! Studies shows that solar electric system would out produce nuclear power plants before the closing of the century. In Australia, present and past administrations have opted for renewable energy from solar power because of its abundant sunlight, but solar technology has progressed now to where it is used widely even in much colder European countries. Nearly all nations now have access to abundant renewable energy sources; it is just a matter of embracing it. Now……… You decide, go dirty and expensive or clean and cheap?
