Nuclear Power Will Be Our Main Energy Resource
- Hypothetical Timeline: Between 2030 to 2050
It has been said by pretty much every single energy scientist that nuclear power would be the most powerful, cheapest, and even one of the cleanest energy source we could use. The problem? We have not figured out how to properly use it, especially in the safest ways. That will all change one day and could result in the cost of your power bill being reduced to pennies compared to what you see it as today.
The reason? Every area will have its own nuclear power grid, potentially owned by the city, state, province, or village you’re in at the time. We already utilize nuclear power in America, as we are home to 99 nuclear power units across 33 states as of 2020 data. It makes up 8.5% of our total energy, compared to Petroleum and Natural Gas at the top. Since nuclear energy is fairly new and will take time to properly improve, we expect it to be the main energy producer in the next 10 to 30 years.
