  • Utilizing only 1% of the earth’s deserts to produce clean solar electric energy would provide more electricity than is currently being produced on the entire planet by fossil fuels.
  • Over 605 of U.S. solar technology sales are exports.
  • Solar and wind power have tremendous potential to create clean jobs for the United States while reducing emissions as we enter the twenty-first century
  • Over 45,000 jobs were directly or indirectly related to energy efficiency and renewable energy programs.
  • Solar energy is the pollution solution – it requires two-thirds less water with negligible air and water pollution emissions.
  • When a solar hot water heating system is included in the financing for a new home, the typical cost of the system ranges from $13 to $20 month and because the system is included in the home’s mortgage, the homeowner can take advantage of a federal income tax deduction.
  • The potential U.S. market for photovoltaics is nearly 9,000 megawatts, At a low estimate of $3 per watt, this translates into a $27 billion market in the U.S. alone.
  • The power saved by all the solar hot water heating and pool heating systems currently installed in the U.S. is equivalent to 9 megawatts per year, or the annual output of a typical nuclear power plant.
  • Prices for a complete solar water heating system range from $2,000 to $4,000. The life-cycle cost of a solar water heating system is at least 20% lower than a conventional water heater.
  • The cost of extending an electric power line from the electric grid averages from $20,000 to $80,000 per mile, with even higher costs in urban areas.
  • Solar thermal power plants create 2_ times as many skilled, high paying jobs as do conventional power plants that use fossil fuels.
  • Solar Two, a “power tower” electricity generating plant in California, is a 10-megawatt prototype for large-scale commercial power plants. It store the sun’s energy in molten salt at 1050 F, which allows the plant to generate power day and night, rain or shine. Construction was completed in March 1996, and it is now in its three-year operating and testing phase.
  • Solar thermal plants have virtually no emissions of carbon dioxide (CO2), sulfur dioxide (SO2), nitrogen oxides (NOx), hazardous air pollutants (HAPs), or carbon monoxide (CO). Over a 20-year life, a 100-megawatt solar plant would avoid emitting more than 3 million tons of CO2 and 140 tons of NOx when compared with the cleanest combined-cycle power plants available today.

Ecosystem Impacts of Nuclear Power in California

Example: San Onofre Nuclear Generating Station (SONGS), Located near the Orange County/San Diego County BorderInstead of building huge billion-dollar cooling towers, the San Onofre Nuclear Generating Station reactors, located near San Diego, are cooled with ocean water. A giant system of pipes takes in more than two million gallons of ocean water a minute, fish and plankton are sucked in along with the seawater. After being warmed to as much as 108 degrees, the water is sent back out to the sea. The kelp bed and ecosystem have been devastated. The best scientific estimates show that the annual loss of marine organisms include: Read More…
