Old Faithful refers not to the famous Yosemite Park geyser, but to nuclear power. This energy source provides a substantial source of power, with nearly a third of the state’s electricity generation. Currently challenges to its predominance include a diversity of energy sources, including alternative fuel sources like biofuels and traditional fuel sources such as natural gas. What may make nuclear energy worth continuing an investment in is cost.
