Group of Companies to Explore Nuclear Licensing

LCG, Mar. 31, 2004--A group of power generation companies plans to split the costs associated with the regulatory process for a nuclear power facility, an effort which could lead to the construction of a nuclear plant beginning by the end of the decade.

The Nuclear Regulatory Commission's licensing process has been changed to allow the agency to issue not only a construction permit but an operating license, based on a generic reactor design. The members of the consortium includes Exelon Corp., Entergy Nuclear, Constellation Energy Group Inc., Southern Co., EDF International North America Inc. (a unit of Electricite de France), as well as reactor builders General Electric Co. and Westinghouse Electric Co. The reactor vendors have already submitted designs for consideration by the NRC. Members of the group have said that they are ready to spend $7 million annually in the hopes that they can obtain a permit by 2010, although they have stressed that the effort will not definitely result in a decision to build a plant.

The agreement among the companies will allow any of those involved to proceed towards construction of a plant, whether independently or as part of a group.
