I had a tiny part to play in the new ESBWR design originally approved for North Anna in 2017 as well. Approved, but not sure when construction will be scheduled (paused at the moment).

Vogtle Units 3 & 4 (Georgia Power, a Southern Company) are currently under construction. Both are Westinghouse AP1000 plants, ~1100 MW each.

That's good. When I was home in Atlanta over Thanksgiving the news said the project had stopped because the company had gone bankrupt.

Good news

SC units are cancelled I believe; GA units are to be built.

Went to Nuke Eng school in the mid-70s. Was to be the future of energy, and fusion was just around the corner.

Then TMI. Then anti-nuke activists. Then fossil industry advocates. Then utility credit crunch. Then Chernobyl. Then continued shifts in energy economics. But slight hope. Then Fukushima Daiichi and cheap natural gas. No one cause, but a near-death of a thousand cuts.

I'm an electrical engineer and have been in nuclear power going on 30 years now. There was some promise of a comeback in the nuclear industry until the Fukushima Daiichi meltdowns and development of natural gas fracking making gas a cheap alternative. The company I work for had applied for new nuclear construction licenses over 10 years ago, but they were subsequently cancelled at our request. Now we are shutting down plants in the NE before their license is due to expire due to cheap natural gas.
