A friend who is a member of the Sierra Club sent me this info in an email last week.
“Back in July, on one of those 100+ degree days, Consumers Power recorded their highest electricity use day in Michigan history.
What was most significant about that was that both Davis-Besse (near Detroit) and Palisades (near South Haven) nuke plants were off-line that day, and there were no black-outs or brown-outs. This suggests that we do not need these dangerous, aging dinosaurs in our energy mix; especially considering how expensive they are compared to renewables. We need more wind and solar to supply our energy needs in the future.
