NRC to vote this afternoon on license for two new reactors for South Carolina nuke

The Nuclear Regulatory Commission is meeting this afternoon in Maryland and is expected to vote on licensing for two new reactors at the V. C. Summer nuclear power plant in South Carolina. The meeting begins at 1:25 Eastern Time.

In a related story, legal wrangling over cost overruns at the project has begun. (Yes, that’s the way the nuclear industry does it now: Build first, get a license later.)

Reuters reported yesterday:

SCE&G, Westinghouse, and the Shaw Group have been negotiating who is responsible for certain increased costs to build the two new reactors for several months.
