We have developed a computer program to study the magnitude and time dependence of the net power and net energy generated by an expanding system of identical power plants. Application of the program to several expansion modes over a range of values for the rate of expansion, the net energy generated by an individual plant, and the construction time for each plant has led to some interesting results concerning the impact of the expanding system on the overall energy picture. In particular, during a rapid expansion phase, the system of power plants may be a better means of energy storage than of energy generation.
