Quote of the Day | AREVA North America: Next Energy Blog


Via World Nuclear News comes this quote from the Charlotte Observer:

The construction of new nuclear power plants would be the only viable way for Duke Energy to meet increasing electricity demand should carbon emission taxes be introduced, according to Jim Rogers, the company’s CEO. Duke needs to build new power plants in order to meet demand, but a carbon tax would cost the company heavily if it constructed more coal-fired plants. Rogers said: “The only way we could do it is with nuclear. The higher the price (of carbon) goes, the stronger the case for nuclear.” . . .

In January 2007, Rogers called nuclear energy “almost the perfect choice” for Duke.
