Question of the Week 32

by | Apr 13, 2023 | Journalism, Question of the Day, Question Of the Week

Last week’s question:

According to the Energy Information Agency, what percentage of the electricity generated in the USA during 2022 was by generated by solar voltaic panels?

The answer is only 3.4% of the electricity generated during 2022 came from solar. SIXTY percent (60%) of the USA electricity we use comes from burning natural gas (~40%) and coal (~20%). The 2022 percentages for other generators are listed below:
A. 3.4% Solar

B. 6.2% Hydro

C. 10.2% Wind

D. 18.2% Nuclear

E. 19.5% Coal

What is going to be a big problem, and is seldom discussed, it that our nuclear power plants are getting very old. Here in New England, we depend on Seabrook and Milestone for about 20% of out electricity. These plants are well past their initial expected useful life and are now operating on extended licenses. What’s the plan? More solar? Rotating blackouts?
