Keep Nuclear as an Option for Missouri

Ohhh, lookee what came with my KCP&L electric bill! Do read on:

State Sen. Mike Kehoe (R-Jefferson City) has introduced a bill, Senate Bill 50, that would allow utilities to recover the costs associated with obtaining an early site permit, or ESP, which is issued by the Nuclear Regulatory Commission.

The good news is consumers won't pay a dime unless and until the permit is issued. The cost would be less than $2 a year for residential customers. If completed, the plant would help diversify Missouri's power generating facilities and help continue to keep Missouri's electricity costs among the lowest in the nation.

Umm... talk about bad timing. This arrived in the mail two days before the events in Japan.

  1. my hubby's dad worked a long time in a nuclear plant...still does some work for them though he's retired. hubby was saying it's really not that dangerous for anyone unless you're working in the containment are. If something happens, the uranium is on its way to china and the radiation in the air is super minimum...still - bad timing!
