Re: UK Electricity Prices Hit Record High

I believe it will take much longer to build a new Nuke than some think.

The best past examples I know were:

-          Armenia shut down their perfectly good Nuke around 1988.  They learned math and physics very fast (it took them ONLY 5 years and several brutal winters with constant blackouts).  The story is very teachable - see extract below.  

-          “…After lengthy discussions, they developed a solution and subsequently unit 2 restarted on 5 November 1995, six years after being shut down. This resulted in vast increases in the Armenian power supply, allowing power to be used day and night…”

There is much more to this. Now, 25 years later they discuss building another Nuke

-          Many Canadian friends are aware of story of Bruce NPP in Ontario. After shutting down around 1995-97 It took them about 10 years to figure out that returning them in service is a good idea. 

Keep in mind, this is not building new Nukes, but bringing back the good ones after learning the reality.  I been at both, Bruce is still recovering and have a long way to go, but they are “very proud”…

So, it took 5 -10 years for Math and Physics to kick in.  If you use the same learning curve in UK case, you could add 10+ years for construction (red tape you would not believe). It will take much longer in the US. Just reality…

It will take much longer in the US as any future Greta could shame us out of this after several billions already been wasted. Consider it for your investments
