Utilize RTGs (Radioisotopic Thermal Generators) to generate 35-75 KWe during emergencies, for sustaining our critical infrastructure.

Heat from the RTGs would either generate electricity using thermocouples or using heat exchangers to generate a simple steam cycle turbine generator.

The advantages include: Small relative sizes, ease of mobility, long lasting power source.
Primarily for military and security forces, communications, water and wastewater supplies for the public.
