Letter: Only nuclear assures clean power whenever we need it

Energy sources not available on demand require redundant backup generation. The ability to provide energy on demand is called “capacity factor” and the ability to deliver at times when power is needed is called “capacity value.”Wind turbines have low capacity factors because they are dependent on wind speed. They start producing a small amount of electricity with a wind speed about 6 or 7 miles per hour, reach “rated” capacity at around 31 mph and cut out at around 56 mph.
