Uh that's an opinion piece...

An opinion that is correct......actually no it's fact.

Capacity Factor

Wind = 30%
Solar = 20%
Nuclear = 90%+

Nuclear is BY FAR the greatest energy source we have on the planet. To say otherwise means....you are dumb, uneducated, get bank to say the oppposite or are so anti-nuke you would rather suffer black lung for the purpose of anything but nuke. Shamefull and deserving of prision time.

Capacity Factor is a made up term that is used only by nukes and they spend a lot of dollars figuring out capacity factors for the coal industry and other industries that simply don't use it. Its because of the way nukes are operated. I have said many times sun and wind shouldn't be measured. Anything that can't really pick up VARs is useless. On the other hand gas plants are just as clean as nuclear and cost about 90% less.

Made up by the Nuke industry.....lol

Gas just as clean as Nuke.....haha

Maybe coal and gas don't use capacity factor (which they do) because they don't compare to Nuke. You don't see Ferrari using MPG as a selling point either.

Capacity factor is a term I heard A LOT last month at a meeting of our CTG group I had the privilege of attending.  I heard the same term 30 years ago while I worked in the fossil plants.
