Mini nuclear plants

I'm sure I blogged about the proposed Toshiba mini nuclear power plant in Galena, Alaska, but I can't find it. It is inevitable that our electrical power will come from a network of mini nuke plants. This will reduce the need to consume fossil fuels and remove the problems of large grids, problems which we saw in the blackout in northeastern North America a few years ago. The plants will be self-contained, and require no human intervention, essentially nuclear batteries.
