Another US Nuclear Plant to Close

Subtitle:  Nuclear Cannot Compete

The FitzPatrick nuclear plant owned by Entergy will close due to previous and continuous heavy financial losses.  see link to story.    This is exactly as described here on SLB, many nuclear plants simply cannot compete in the low-price utility market that is dominated by natural gas, coal, and wind energy.   see link  "Nuclear Power Plants Cannot Compete." 

It is interesting to note that the company whines that nuclear power could compete if only the carbon-free aspect was rewarded in the marketplace.
