Pilgrim Nuclear power plant is the largest carbon free energy source in MA (680MW), it produces about 15% of electricity in MA. Annual production is running ~ 5,119 GWh Capacity Utilization Factor: 85% How do we replace this power loss without electric rates spiking to 0.35 to 0.50 KWh hurting the electric car movement. Carbon free replacement: I estimate to replace this plant with solar would require around ~3.5 GWh of new solar panel capacity[CUF of 17%]. Furthermore, massive battery storage would be required for this project. That's a lot of solar panels and batteries... Any thoughts???
