Solar Energy security is the <a href="http://www.inverter.co/">inverter</a> key and to that end the life expectancy of nuclear power plants exceeds solar power plants by at least 10 years and that too at 90% utilization rates compared to barely 20% CUF from PV inverter, also land usage for solar PV inverter over Nuclear is 12 times more, except the gestation time of course is clearly tilted in favour of PV, and last but not least, the operating tarriffs for nuclear is 2.28-2.5/kWh while PV is north of 5.
The portfolio mix for <a href="http://www.inverter.co/power-inverters.html">power inverter</a> energy generation sources has thus got to be worked out on a forward looking time-series economics. And even if LCOE from PV matches with Nuclear, the life span still needs to be enhanced. Granted the costs of disposal of used Nuclear fuel is a concern but thinking out of the box or may be out-of-whack can there be a way to develop Li-ions or a near to Li-ion storage capability with which we could turn into storage inverters or say something like dumping used nuclear fuel into volcanoes for breaking them down to the atomic levels again.
I would like to see the most new solar power inverter systems in village level off-grid locations, providing lighting and charging for cell phones & etc. But I do not see this being the big player- no reliable funding for village level. So I see industrial being the big market of <a href="http://www.inverter.co/solar-inverters.html">solar inverter</a> in China. If you know of any well funded programs installing small solar PV systems in villages.
