‘Outrageous increase’

The recent announcement of an outrageous increase in energy prices by Worthing based French owned EDF – a major supplier of nuclear energy – doesn’t bode well for future electricity prices if more nuclear power stations are built.

Not only is the cost of building these stations astronomical, but also the end-of-life costs to make them safe.

With EDF in the running to build several of these controversial stations in England, it’s likely these costs will fall on the hard-pressed taxpayer and consumer if the Government is allowed to do a U-turn on subsidies.
