Re: Dale Question - but others feel free (Dale)

Family size TRIGA reactors with no moving parts.
A really wonderful idea Dale, in theory.
I take it they would be rented out, remaining the property of the Nuclear Company?
Couple of points...even paralleled thermocouples would not supply the amperage required to run the average households max use. ie. Winter space and water heating.
Accident or breakdown insurance.
Since the US, nuclear companies have to pay the first $9 billion of damages before your Goverment steps in, I'm wondering if the rent and insurance total, might work out somewhat more than todays Hydro prices, since they might attract terrorists?

Make them run from the present nuclear waste, and you will become a billionaire.
