Nuclear is far and away the safest energy that we've ever created from start to finish and it also has the highest return for energy invested. everyone always recites the same three incidents, but when you compare the environmental damage of mismanagement of facilities to the everyday output of things like a cadmium mine or an oil refinery, nuclear is not only cleaner but cheaper in almost every capacity. I wish I could have a radioisotope generator built into my car, I would pay a lot for that because then I would never have to plug it in, but it probably wouldn't generate very much electricity overall.Nuclear power doesn't count any legal liability, cost overruns, waste disposal, and you can't carry it with you.
The comparison is with being able to carry the energy with you. Your own calculations shows that it pays off in five years, so why are you saying it doesn't?
Also, if they don't plan for this internal charge management, then you won't be able to have charging trailers without major alterations.
My numbers for the return on investment are based off of the exorbitant crisis in California crossed with maximum power generation and retention, if you pay closer to the average of 13 cents per kilowatt hour that the rest of the nation does and generate even less per day, both of which will likely be the case, then the numbers really don't shake out. I was being generous with my estimate, if I were to be conservative it would be a no-brainer to avoid it.
