Florida for Nuclear

Today, the nuclear headlines had this gem. Progress Energy of North Carolina and currently operator of four nuclear power plants signed an agreement with the Westinghouse/Shaw to put a two unit AP-1000 plant in Levy County, FL.

I like this first step forward to ensure a substantial carbon-free energy supply for the "Sunshine" state. I also like the 3000 peak-construction and 800 permanent job creation. Such efforts--at a large scale--would be a major player in our near-to-mid-term economic future.
