Nuclear Reactors To Be Built in Georgia

02/18/2010
On 2/16, President Obama announced that the Energy Department had approved financial help for the construction of two nuclear reactors in Georgia. If the project goes forward, the reactors would be the first begun in the United States since the 1970s.
 
According to The New York Times, "the announcement of the loan guarantee - $8.3 billion to help the Southern Company and two partners build twin reactors in Burke County - comes as the administration is courting Republican support for its climate and energy policies. With climate legislation stalled in the Senate and its prospects for success dim, Democrats are seeking new incentives to spur clean energy development and create jobs."
