It’s Time to Modernize America’s Nuclear Power Policy

Jeff Luse writes in The National Interest that it’s time to modernize American nuclear energy policy.

The C3 Take
  • For the first time in nearly 30 years a newly constructed nuclear power plant is delivering energy to the grid.
  • The project was six years and $15 billion over budget, caused in part by human error and outdated government regulations.
  • In order to deliver more clean power to consumers and businesses, lawmakers and regulators must modernize America’s nuclear energy policy to bring more projects online.

“The United States can continue to be a leader in nuclear power, but only if the government modernizes its regulations to allow innovators the freedom to innovate. Allowing the inefficiencies and delays that ensnared the Vogtle project to continue will not only impede reductions in carbon emissions but also harm national energy security and reliability for businesses and consumers.”
