Power in Crockerland


POWER IN CROCKERLAND

Nuclear Energy

Nuclear Energy is popular due to it's reliability, longevity of fuel, and safety. The 4,958-megawatt Rhind Nuclear Power Station (named after president Edward Rhind, who commissioned it's creation) is the largest powerplant in Crockerland by far, and put a stop to energy shortages facing New Thule.

Natural Gas

Natural gas energy, though less powerful and less clean than Nuclear, is fairly popular in Crockerland due to it's immediate availability and lack of radioactive waste. Natural Gas is readily available without needing to be imported, present along the coast of the Beaufort Sea.

Hydroelectric Power

Hydroelectric power stations are powered by the tide, waves, or rivers. They are renewable but river-based hydroelectric facilities can only be built on sufficient rivers, while oceanic hydroelectric power is practically unobtainable during winter.

Geothermal Power

Geothermal Power is free, practically infinite, and removes the cost of shipping fuel entirely. Unfortunately, it is very localized, one can't simply build a geothermal plant wherever desired, and thus, they are only practical to an extent, and cannot power the entire nation.

Oil Power

Petroleum products, namely fuel oil, are popular in remote regions worldwide, there are a few major fuel oil powerplants, but most individually non-noteworthy and provide small amounts of power to minuscule communities, though their electric production adds up overall.

Wind Power

Wind Power is free, and unlike Geothermal powerplants, wind farms can be built anywhere. Wind powerplants are not reliable and require backup systems, the reason no nation on Earth relies on Wind to supply the majority of it's electricity.

Coal Power

Coal is a dirty power source, mining it creates acid runoff and burning it for power creates radioactive coal fly ash more dangerous than nuclear waste. Coal power presents significant environmental, public health, and safety risks, but is cheap, readily available, and has significant backing from large international corporations. Coal was once more popular, but has been unable to compete with natural gas and nuclear energy, some old coal powerplants can still be found in Crockerland.

Solar Power

Solar energy is free, it can be built anywhere, and it is not reliant on the wind, however it is vulnerable to snow and long polar nights, even if it can benefit from the midnight sun.
