TVA Approves Construction to Complete Watts Bar 2

The Tennessee Valley Authority board has approved the construction of the second unit at Watts Bar Nuclear Power Plant in accordance with the revised cost estimate.
Earlier this month, it was revealed that the project would require an additional $1.5-$2 billion to complete, bringing the total cost to complete the unit to nearly $4.5 billion.
TVA's decision shows that they believe the project is worth the extra price.
