  1. Wind vs. Nuclear Selected Graphics (2000 – 2012) Paul M. Grant www.w2agz.com

  2. 1 mile Kashiwazaki Kariwa: 8 GW ! Comment: This graphic compares the land/sea area required by a wind farm to replace that of Japan’s west coast Kashiwazaki-Kariwa nuclear power facility. Wind Power Factoids • KK Wind Equivalent (8 GW) • Power per Tower 8 MW • Number of Towers 1000 • Inter-tower Distance 1000 ft • Total Area (miles x miles) 43.5 x 43.5

  3. Comment: The Diablo Canyon nuclear power facility in the Los Padres national forest on the mid-California coast. The two reactors comprise a total of approximately 2.2 GW continuously dispatchable power.

  4. Comment: Approximately 25% of the land area required to “replace” Diablo Canyon with 1 MW wind towers spaced 1000 feet apart.

  5. California Coast Power Comment: Total land area required to “replace” Diablo Canyon with 1 MW wind towers spaced 1000 feet apart. Given a 30% overall “availability” of current wind farm output, more that 3x the depicted land area would be needed. Diablo Canyon 2200 MW Power Plant Wind Farm Equivalent 1 Mile
