The Do More For Less Model

Easy to maintain
Smaller-scale technologies like wind, hydro, geothermal, combined heat and power and even solar are nowhere near as complicated to construct or maintain as a nuclear plant.  They can be deployed much faster and therefore can help us reduce greenhouse gas emissions now — and not a decade or more from now. 

As one financial analyst put it, nuclear power is a very expensive and complicated way to boil water (nuclear plants produce steam that is used to turn turbines to generate electricity).  There are many, many other ways to produce electricity or to meet the needs served by electricity (a hot shower, a cold beer) that are cheaper, safer and more reliable.

Renewable systems are much less prone to system-wide blackouts compared to large centralized systems built around a handful of giant nuclear plants.
