Westinghouse nuclear reactor set to advance at NRC

NRC is seeking comments on AP1000 reactor design
The Nuclear Regulatory Commission will seek the public's input on whether to approve Westinghouse Electric's AP1000 reactor design, said Gregory Jaczko, chairman of the NRC. Southern Co. and SCANA are planning to use the design for their respective expansion projects in Georgia and South Carolina. The NRC could award construction licenses to both companies this year if the design is cleared, Jaczko added. Reuters
