This does not bode well for power price

The recent announcement of an outrageous increase in energy prices by Worthing based French owned EDF – a major supplier of nuclear energy – doesn’t bode well for future electricity prices if more nuclear power stations are built.

Not only is the cost of building these stations astronomical, but also the end of life costs to make them safe.

With EDF in the running to build several of these controversial stations in England it’s likely these costs will fall on the hard-pressed taxpayer and consumer if the government is allowed to do a U-turn on subsidies.
