1 Lenape Lenape Energy sources: Geothermal- 4,000 MW Hydroelectric- 10,000 MW Nuclear- 6,000 MW Wind- 3,000 MW Tidal – 2,000 - MW (Import from Paradise) Energy sources: Geothermal- 4,000 MW Hydroelectric- 10,000 MW Nuclear- 6,000 MW Wind- 3,000 MW Tidal – 2,000 - MW (Import from Paradise)

2 Energy needs Energy needs We need 25,000 MW of energy to provide power to Lenape. We only have 23,000 MW Therefore, we are importing 2,000 MW from our neighboring province Paradise. Paradise has many areas with very high tidal ranges. Our electrical grid is connected to nearby areas with high tidal ranges. Tidal energy is also renewable and has minimal impact on the environment.

3 Geothermal Geothermal 4,000 MWs Generally close to electrical grid for power distribution to consumers of electricity (people and businesses). We recommend building a geothermal power plant at this location because it is on a hot spot. 4,000 MWs Generally close to electrical grid for power distribution to consumers of electricity (people and businesses).

4 This site is located on the Gotham River. This location has an elevation change. There is also a lake that can be dammed to provide a reservoir. The site is located near the grid and a nearby city. Power can be easily distributed to people and businesses. A few roads would be needed to get people and building materials to this location to build this dam.

5 Nuclear In the central area of our province, there is an area that has uranium that can be mined. We propose to build a nuclear energy power plant next to the mines so there is not much transportation to get the uranium to the plant. We would need to extend the grid to the plant location in order to provide energy to our citizens.

6 Wind The northern area of Lenape has wind speeds of 14.3 mph to 17.9 mph and up. This is a good place for a large wind farm since there are no nearby areas of national significance. Major highways are close by to bring materials to the area to build the wind farm. An electrical grid system would need to extend from the wind farm to the nearby city.

7 Benefits Geothermal energy: Does not produce air pollution and no transportation is required to get the fuel to the plant. Hydroelectric energy: Does not produce air pollution and no transportation is required to get the fuel to the plant. Wind energy: Does not produce air and thermal pollution. Nuclear energy: Is clean and does not emit greenhouse gasses. Tidal energy: Does not produce air and thermal pollution.

8 Environmental Impacts Geothermal energy: Plant location may impact the ecosystem in that area. Hydroelectric energy: Dam may alter fish migrations and change water habitats. Wind energy: Turbines cause noise pollution. Nuclear energy: Radioactive wastes are produced. Thermal pollution also. Tidal energy: Aquatic ecosytems may be affected.

9 Conservation Design electrical grids that are close to both plants and city centers – the place where energy is going, so not much energy is lost during transport. Turn off all lights when they are not being used. Unplug chargers from the wall when they’re not being used. Walk to close areas instead of driving. Turn the hot water off when you’re soaping up in the shower.
