South Texas nuclear plant expansion delayed?

South Texas nuclear plant expansion delayed?

South Texas nuclear plant expansion delayed?

(OP)
Heard about two weeks ago that the South Texas nuclear plant expansion (Plants 3 & 4) was being deferred, if not canceled outright.  But since then, I've seen no confirmation nor denial.

Any other information about this - now that the tax-and-trade carbon bill has been rammed through the House of Representative?

Hostile takeover big from another co-owner NRG remains in progress, but there's no indication that would stop anything if successful.

There have been some controversy in the cost estimates lately which are still being worked out

eBook - Rethink Your PLM
A lot has changed since the 90s. You don't surf the Web using dial-up anymore, so why are you still using a legacy PLM solution that's blocking your ability to innovate? To develop and launch products today, you need a flexible, cloud-based PLM, not a solution that's stuck in the past. Download Now
White Paper - Using Virtualization for IVI and AUTOSAR Consolidation on an ECU
Current approaches used to tackle the complexities of a vehicle’s electrical and electronics (E/E) architecture are both cost prohibitive and lacking in performance. Utilizing virtualization in automotive software architecture provides a better approach. This can be achieved by encapsulating different heterogeneous automotive platforms inside virtual machines running on the same hardware. Download Now
White Paper - The Criticality of the E/E Architecture
Modern vehicles are highly sophisticated systems incorporating electrical, electronic, software and mechanical components. Mechanical systems are giving way to advanced software and electronic devices, driving automakers to innovate and differentiate their vehicles via the electric and electronic (E/E) architecture. As the pace of change accelerates, automotive companies need to evolve their development processes to deliver and maximize the value of these architectures. Download Now
