Your backyard (TGW) – Hyperion Power Generation’s “nuclear-in-a-box” technology will be available for commercial deployment in 2013, CEO John “Grizz” Deal said.
Hyperion’s nuclear power reactor units are about the size of a typical backyard hot tub, and are able to generate 70 megawatts of heat energy, or 27 megawatts of electricity from a steam turbine – enough to power 20,000 homes.
The nuclear battery is sealed and buried at the generation site, and taken back to the factory for refueling every five years.
The reactor unit’s size is supposed to bring down capital costs 30% and operating costs 50%.
