Post Comments - Energy Efficiency versus Nuclear

Not being contrary at all here Sam, but is the cost of decommissioning included in the cost of building the replacement? Because regardless of what replaces an existing plant, the cost of the decommissioning is humungous.

I'd say that when the "cost" of a new nuke plant is considered, there should be a realistic amount factored in for the decommissioning cost of it. And the longer the expected life, the more it will finally cost to decommission in "todays" dollars NPV'd....
