This article from NYC Group Chair Ken Baer discusses ways in which we could reduce our demand for energy and install solar panels to replace Indian Point.
The Indian Point reactors produce about 2,000 megawatts of electricity. The New York City/Westchester grid uses 9,000 to 13,000 megawatts daily, depending on the temperature.(http://nuclearfreeplanet.org/indian-point-fact-sheet.html). Entergy's current contract requires the sale of only 560MW to NYC and Westchester. The remaining 75% of their electricity is sold on the open market from New England to Illinois (http://bit.ly/fOY6c5).
In the first quarter of 2011, renewable energy production in the United States surpassed nuclear production in overall quantity and percentage.
