You go Joe! NOTE: for those who still have the old incandescent Christmas lights...if you can get ahold of a VARIAC, you're able to 'dial down' your power consumption:) Happy Thanksgiving...drill'.

You are 100% correct. Being from PA would like to see more clean burning coal power plants since we have such an abundance. I think that would be safer in the long run. Thanks wd

Watch that installation at South Texas. This one will ultimately be the largest nuke farms in North America. I am in my mid 60s and am therefore too old to make the multiyear committment (10+ years) to this EPC project.

The new nukes in Mississippi (Grand Gulf) and Louisiana (Riverbend 2), I just see the filling out of the Entergy footprint for units that were in the planning stages years ago. I worked for Entergy in the past. I would not consider EVER investing in them.

The new nuke plans for Duke Energy in North Carolina, and Southern Companies in Alabama are also not in fasttrack status. When I read the detailed plans in this area, I get the sense of regulatory hesitation on the part of these two companies. Yes, Plant Vogtle is also part of Southern Companies.

Florida is doing their mess as a pre emptive strike to deal with expected power issues. No approvals for new nukes in Florida are currently in the fasttrack stage.

At Plant Vogtle near Augusta, Georgia, the work has already started. I am from the PowerGen industry and have been actively recruited even though I am in my mid 60s. Georgia ratepayers actually are getting a better deal than the subsidies given to coal fired plants. Nukes are not necessarily win-win, but some deals are better than others.

I grew up downwind from the Hanford reservation in WA state. The cancer rate in that area is higher than other parts of WA state too. That and many other reasons is why no insurance company will insure a NUKE. Only the government will insure one. That should make it perfectly clear that the risks can be too high. We have had 3 major nuclear power disasters in the world and poisoned very large areas probably permanently. When we can get our power from the sun alone it makes no sense at all to go nuclear. The only reason why anyone would want to go the nuclear route is to be able to control the power. This also makes a grid less reliable when power sources are not diverse and distributed widely.
