One of the dreams of mine has been the massive expansion of nuclear power to generate electricity for the continental United States. Naturally there is massive resistance to this from the "not in my back yard" groups and associated anti nuclear groups. But the Russians themselves had indicated a solution to this problem. Off shore (presumably portable) nuclear powerplants. After all we have dozens of nuclear powered U.S. warships and very few people around the U.S. get up in arms when they dock at any port. I've proposed a network of nuclear powerplants built aboard large ships or barges that can be moved to needed areas and tied directly into the three major U.S. power grids (Eastern, Western, Texas). We have the major coasts of the East, West, and Gulf and large ocean going ships or barges can pretty much reach any point accessible by the Great Lakes. Obviously the vast majority of the U.S. population lives near the coastlines and could get their electricity from such sources. So what are the best points to attach a barge (or large ship) with nuclear reactors into the various U.S. power grids? And how many large floating reactors would it take to make a major difference in generating capacity. ?
