FREEING ENERGY

Annual energy output of a 1 GW nuclear plant

If the sun sent the earth an energy bill for July, it would be for 16,790,000,000,000,000 kilowatt hours. A standard 1 gigawatt nuclear plant produces approximately 8 million megawatt hours, or 8 billion kilowatt hours, each year. Basically, in a single month, the sun produces the same amount of energy generated by 24 million nuclear power plants.
