RENEWABLE energy advo-cates say it is cheaper and safer to invest in solar and wind to power North Queensland than trying to establish a nuclear power industry.

It comes one day after Mount Isa Mayor Tony McGrady called for a nuclear power station to be considered as a solution to North Queens-land's crippling base-load power shortages.

"I think the nuclear debate in Australia is a moot point," he said.
