Planned and Old Nuclear Power Plants in Trouble

In USA several nuclear power plants are having troubles.

In San Onofre reactor 3 or both reactors two and three could be sentenced to be shut down permanently. The Southern California Edison has reduced its labor force by one third. Lets's hope they close the reactors and the workers will find other jobs. In this kind of situation federal money should be put in for creating new jobs for examle constructing solar power plants and wind farms or biogas power plants so that they could also generate the energy needed after shutdown of NPPs.

Exelon is withdrawing from plans to built new nuclear reactors. The Company says that nuclear power is not any more financically competitive with gas and renewables and that people are widely against constructing new nuclear plants.
