ideal home: mini nuclear reactor by toshiba

Gordon Brown's plans to build up to ten nuclear power stations in Britain connected to a network of high speed electricity budget meters, has set off a frenzy of hand wringing and teeth grinding by envioromentalists in Britain - but precious little else.

Now a new 'threat' looms which is certain to give the eco panic victims even more nightmares;
mini nuclear power generators built by Toshiba designed for 'domestic' use will be on sale in Britain by 2009.

NextEnergyNews reports: Toshiba has developed a new class of micro size Nuclear Reactors that is designed to power individual apartment buildings or city blocks. The new reactor, which is only 20 feet by 6 feet, could change everything for small remote communities, small businesses or even a group of neighbors who are fed up with the power companies and want more control over their energy needs.

.... but unfortunately this is all just a hoax - otherwise schmoo would be ordering one now to be liberated from the Budget Meter for ever.
