Nuclear Power? Have No Fear—Our Clean Energy Future Is Radioactive.

"There’s no low-carbon transition where power stays reliable and affordable without nuclear. Once they’re built, these plants are cheap: the fuel is cheaper than gas and coal, you’ve got some maintenance (which, by the way, you’ve also got on wind and solar), and a plant can operate for 80 years. And again, it's all based on mature technology that’s already powering our homes and businesses. The possibilities for fusion—the process of combining atoms to create energy that saw a breakthrough in December—are a whole ‘nother conversation."

Overregulation and the absurd cost – both time-wise and financially – of the NRC permitting process are stopping clean, safe nuclear energy in its tracks. We’re allowing outdated fears and bureaucratic inertia dictate our energy future, while our energy security and climate goals suffer."

"Critics, however, warn that the PUC is pushing the state toward a market design rooted in the past instead of embracing renewable energy and accelerating efforts to cut electricity use when demand is highest. Some also say the proposal would raise power costs for customers. And powerful legislators question whether the PUC’s plan will offer the reliability its supporters promise."
