ET we may have stopped producing electricity from all our Magnox Reactors but we have barely begun to strip them apart and we do not have a final solution of where to store the poison? Several reactors are to be shuttered over the next four years.
As far as i know, only Hinkley Point C is being constructed by the French, they have had many problems with the new plant in Flamanville; it is still not working.
Over four per cent of the Electricity produced in the United Kingdom, now comes from Solar. Where my daughter lives they are starting to cover the fields with Solar. Land owners can earn more money from Solar, without effort, however some are sometimes putting sheep under them. Solar is very inexpensive, it is very easy to install in a field. It is very easy to deinstall, when the time comes, the land could go back to agriculture, indeed, it may even be possible to move the panels about to as to allow land to be fallow, they are now putting Solar on reservoirs. So, you could have a hydroelectric plant, with Solar on the lake and windturbines and battery packs.
