Biden Bails Out Nuclear Power Industry


Recommended Posts

The current generation of nuclear power plants aren’t so great, thus why they needed to be bailed out. There are some serious issues here, be it economic or ecological.

Also, the government shouldn’t bail them out, they should just take them over. Stop paying these companies to keep mismanaging nuclear power plants in an effort to save a few bucks.

What we need are plants built on newer, better, safer designs. Also with more concrete plans on how to deal with the waste.

The distorted energy market have made many excellently operated merchant nukes that are running ~93% capacity factor uneconomic.


If they are shutdown, they are replaced by natural gas. So this is the smart move.
