How Many PRISMs Deliver As Much Electricity As All Of The UK's Wind Turbines?

The clearest way of comparing the amount of electricity different technologies deliver is to calculate how many homes can be supplied and for how many years.

The most recent statistics from the Department of Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy (BEIS) shows that annual UK average domestic household consumption is 3,938kWh. 

And this is how it works out for PRISM Reactors versus the whole of the UK's Wind Farm Fleet:

The UK has 14,118 GW of installed wind turbine capacity - 6,697 wind turbines. They will power 9,547,144 homes for their lifespan of 25 years.
A single PRISM reactor, with a rating of 622 MW and a Capacity Factor of 90% will power 1,245,264 homes for its Design Life of 60 years.
