EPA projects construction of 180 nuclear plants by 2050

EPA projects construction of 180 nuclear plants by 2050
About 180 nuclear power reactors will be built by 2050 -- far more than the existing 104 plants in 31 states, according to the Environmental Protection Agency based on a study of the proposed climate-change bill. With an estimated price tag of $10 billion for each reactor, the expected construction corresponds to a cost of close to $2 trillion. The Examiner/Chicago (10/26)
