Nuclear plant license submittal in the USA

The first in about 3 decades is to be submitted today, Tueday September 25 by Princeton, NJ based NRG Energy.

We Support Lee has the full details, including anticipated schedule, budget and job creation.

Well done [again] Ruth!

Note that of the 10,000 MWe required in the US state of Texas alone over the next few decades, the capacity of these two plants will account for 27%. Plenty of work remains for efficiency programmes, renewables - or of course more nuclear.

But from this 21-June-2007 report from the Dallas Morning News, there are still a fair amount of coal stations planned in Texas. I expect that will change as the pressure to reduce carbon continues to increase.
