Nuclear Renaissance

Baltimore Based Constellation Energy Aims to Activate Nuclear Renaissance.

On Friday the US Nuclear Regulatory Commission approved a partnership (the transfer of operating licenses) between Constellation Energy and Electricite de France, a French energy company.  Armed with this new vote of support from the US government, Mayo Shattuck, Chief Executive Officer of Constellation Energy, took to the airways this morning to advertise his campaign for a Nuclear Renaissance.

For folks who aren’ t as excited about the Nuclear Renaissance as Mayo Shattuck, consider switching to wind power.  If you live in Baltimore, wind power is currently cheaper than the rates you are receiving from Constellation Energy through BGE.  For more information on switching to wind power, CLICK HERE.

Heh, good for Constelation, buy the expensive energy infrastructure that never drops in price, way better than spending money on renewable projects that pay themselves off in the long run.

Not that we shouldn’t be building nuclear plants i guess, but seriously if theres a finite amount of investment dollars, shouldnt we be spending them on the most capital effecient projects?
