whats up: OCCUPY NUCLEAR - New Nukes | February 9

- - - NEW NUKES ALERT - - -

UPDATE 2/9: whats up: NRC Approves Southern’s Nuclear-Plant Construction Permit, First Since ’78

The U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission has scheduled a vote for Feb. 9 on Southern Co.’s application for the first construction permit to build nuclear reactors in more than 30 years. The two Westinghouse nukes are already under construction at Plant Vogtle in Georgia.

a note from NRC 2/6/12:
Note this (meeting) is not to make a final decision on the Combined Operating License for the Vogtle units, but to affirm the decision of the earlier mandatory hearing that there are no environmental or safety reasons not to approve the COL.

However: (I would also note that) once the Commission affirms the hearing findings, the staff is authorized to issue the COL. We are not certain at this point how long that will take.

Your tax dollars at work - The U.S. Energy Department in February 2010 conditionally approved an $8.3 billion loan guarantee to help the company build the two reactors.
