930,277 Lancastrians reject 300 sq km of Offshore Wind in Favour of Sellafield Reactor.

A Sellafield based Nuclear Reactor 
can generate all of the electricity required by the Cities of Lancaster, Preston and Liverpool for 60 Years.
Population Supplied: 930,277
--------------------//--------------------
6 Offshore Wind Farms
Off the North West Coast of England are : 
West of Duddon Sands; Walney; Robin Rigg; Ormonde; Barrow; Burbo Bank.          
4C Offshore

A total of 363 x 3.47 MW [average] turbines occupy 188 sq km, have an Installed Capacity of 1,260 MW, have an Average Lifespan of 22.5 years and cost £3,655 million 
[£2.9 million/MW Installed]

'Homes powered annually': 762,507.
BEIS figure: 3,994 kWh/home per year.
So - Electricity generated per hour: 347,654,447 W
 @594 W/person
Population Supplied: 582,277
--------------------//--------------------
To supply 930,277 would:
Require 580 Turbines
Occupy an Area of 300 sq km
Have an Installed Capacity of 2,029 MW
Cost £5,839 million.
--------------------//--------------------
To supply for 60 years, all of this Offshore Wind Farm Capacity has to be built a 2nd Time and then Generate for 2/3 of the life of the 3rd Build
That would cost: £15,572 million.
[The output from 1,547 x 3.47 MW turbines]
--------------------//--------------------
A cost for a PRISM Reactor has been muted at $6 billion.
That's £4,620 million.
--------------------//-------------------
Final Low-Carbon Electricity Score:
PRISM Reactor 3.4  --  Offshore Wind 1
-----------------------------//-----------------------------
