WHY NUCLEAR!? Tennessee has some of the best potential for wind power in the southeastern U.S. As a legitimate source of energy, wind alone represents 35 percent of all U.S. energy installed in 2007. That’s more than coal and nuclear power combined. This wind energy is also created with less money when compared with coal and nuclear.
Solar energy is here now! Far from experimental, Albert Einstein helped found solar energy technology more than 55 years ago. Solar PV has seen 46 percent global growth since the year 2000. Industrial powers around the world such as Japan and Germany have invested heavily in solar and are now leading the world in output. Tennessee alone has more solar energy potential than both countries! As other countries continue to expand their use of such renewable energy, the U.S. continues to fall behind.
