Elon Musk says he’s ‘pro-nuclear’ power

Elon Musk is surprised by some of the public sentiment’ against nuclear industry

Musk’s comments came in response to a question about rising energy demands that may come with a shift to electric vehicles. Despite his support for nuclear power, Musk said meeting this increased demand will depend on “large sustainable power generation developments, primarily wind and solar.”

While utilities will need to boost their production capacity, they can only do so much because power lines also have a limited capacity to distribute electricity to homes and businesses, he added.

“This is why I think it’s actually very important that a necessary part of the solution is local power generation,” Musk said, referencing Tesla Energy’s solar roof and battery products.
