WILL OHIO DEFEAT ITS NUKE BAILOUT & COLLAPSE THE US REACTOR INDUSTRY?
The Ohio legislature may be on the brink of rejecting FirstEnergy’s request for billions in handouts to keep its failed nuke reactors operating. As much as $4 billion in wind projects is set to go for northern Ohio.
Will this tipping point in the nation’s bellweather state send America’s energy balance deep into Solartopia?
US renewables now generate more juice than nukes So we host DICK MUNSON of the Environmental Defense Fund, PAT MARIDA of the Ohio Sierra Club and KEVIN KAMPS of Beyond Nuclear to dissect the reactor bailouts in Ohio, Illinois and New York where the future of atomic energy will be decided. At least half the 99 reactors still licensed in the US are losing money.
If these three states reject these massive radioactive bailout, nuke power’s death spiral will significantly deepen.
