We have always known there were inherent risks in backing innovative technologies at full commercial scale, and it is very likely that there will be other companies in the portfolio that won't succeed," Chu said in a statement, "but the vast majority of companies are expected to pay the loans back in full, on time and with about $8 billion in interest."


Counting loans and guarantees to U.S. car makers and the nuclear industry, the loan program is supporting as many as 60,000 jobs and generating up to $40 billion in private investment, Chu said.


The new reactors are a Westinghouse design called the AP 1000. Together they are expected to cost $14 billion and provide 2200 megawatts of power, according to a spokesman for Southern Co. That's enough to power 1 million homes.

The plants are being built with the help of a conditional $8.3 billion loan guarantee from the Department of Energy. The loan guarantee is part of DOE's broader loan program that has been criticized for backing companies like Solyndra, the bankrupt maker of solar panels.


Maybe if GW had invested in the infrastucture of this country- and US workers rather than funneling our taxpayer dollars into a sandpit half way around the world and the pockets of the Mullahs he was buying off- we wouldn't have ended up with the Bush Bust- and those two new reactors could have been built years ago...

Personally I prefer my taxdollar go to the building of Nuclear Reactors in Georgia than the building of the George W Bush Super Highway in Baghdad...

But in the mean time the money is not in the bank is it oldtimer!!
Any idea how much help that would be to the economy if it were?????

Is that the way you run your business, spend money you do not have on the expectations someone will pay you on time with interest??? YEP sound business practice there!!!

Once again you try to blame BUSH for everything and anything, perhaps you need to get your head out of the sand, take a deep breath see just how far out of it you have become

they are loan guarantees.. not loans.. so we are on the hook for the bad ones, and see none of the interest payments from the paid loans..

since many of the bad loans had the risk assessment type payments waived, it is all on the taxpayer..

thanks again for showing how the President failed again.... maybe he should have stuck to the Bush Policy on this one as well....

Like was said earlier, so much for OT's history lessons: :lol: :lol:

Nuclear Regulatory Commission faces "Tsunami" Of Applications

ROCKVILLE, Md. – The Nuclear Regulatory Commission is bursting out of its headquarters in the box-store, strip-mall northwestern suburbs of Washington.

Buses shuttle among four structures where the commission has leased overflow space, but that’s not enough to relieve the feel of a college that badly underestimated the size of its incoming freshman class. Portions of the main cafeteria are partitioned off before and after lunch to form makeshift conference rooms. The actual conference rooms are off limits because they've been pressed into service as offices.

The commission’s beleaguered staffers call the cause of all this uproar "the tsunami." It’s been 25 years since a new nuclear power plant was licensed in the United States, but applications started arriving in 2007, spurred by incentives launched during President George W. Bush’s administration. By the end of this year, the Energy Department expects to have applications in hand for 31 new reactors. For each application, a couple of DVDs land at the NRC, containing tens of thousands of pages of technical data that must be scrutinized

Speaking of NIMBY's, the Sierra Club is the world's finest protector of them:

msnbc.com staff and news service reports

updated 6/22/2005 7:48:54 PM ET

LUSBY, Md. — President Bush visited a nuclear power plant in Maryland on Wednesday in a push to encourage the construction of new sites as part of long-stalled energy legislation in Congress, arguing that nuclear power can reduce foreign dependency on energy and help tackle emissions tied to global warming.

"It is time for this country to start building nuclear power plants again," he said to applause from employees of the Calvert Cliffs nuclear plant, located south of Washington, D.C.

"Nuclear power is one of America's safest sources of energy," he added, all "without producing a single pound of air pollution and greenhouse gases" like carbon dioxide, which many scientists tie to global warming.

Nuclear energy produces 20 percent of America's electricity needs, the president noted, saving "about as much carbon dioxide as now comes from all our cars and trucks."

Citing better training and new designs, the president said "nuclear plants are far safer than ever before ... generating electricity and protecting the environment at the same time."

The Calvert Cliffs plant is one of a six sites being considered for a new, advanced reactor. If built, it would be America’s first new commercial reactor since the 1979 Three Mile Island accident.

Legislation in Congress would provide financial incentives and lawsuit protections for new nuclear power plants, an idea opposed by environmental groups. Many oppose nuclear power on principle, while a few say it shouldn't receive subsidies.
.
"Nuclear power poses a major security risk and produces a radioactive waste, which we have no way to store safely over the long term," Sierra Club Executive Director Carl Pope said shortly after Bush's speech. "It also makes absolutely no sense to waste tax dollars on new power plants when we have not secured or cleaned up the waste from existing nuclear power plants."

OldIBelieveinKneepads, are you aware of the 800 MILLION dollars your Messiah has in his new budget for "Arab Spring" countries, PLUS military aid to Egypt? I didn't think so. If that steaming pile of BS flies, your hero will essentially be funding the Muslim Brotherhood, Al Queda and the Taliban. :shock: These guys are NOT our friends. Put that in your toddy glass and drink it, you miserable old coot!

We know, we know, it's all Bush's fault........... :roll:

This administration seems awfully quick to back these Muslims that are overthrowing governments


MALE, Maldives (AP) — The United States on Friday backtracked from its swift recognition of the new Maldives government, which the nation's former leader claims came to power in a coup.

The Maldives has faced one day of rioting and two days more of a political standoff since Mohamed Nasheed announced Tuesday that he was resigning as president, following months of protests against his rule and fading support from the security forces. But the next day Nasheed, who now faces an arrest warrant, announced he had actually been pushed from power at gunpoint. The reality remains unclear.

Nasheed criticized Washington after the State Department said Thursday it recognized the new government as legitimate.

"It's unfortunate that the American government has decided to work with the regime," Nasheed told reporters.

http://news.yahoo.com/us-walks-back-recognition-maldives-govt-194323256.html


On Friday in Washington, State Department spokeswoman Victoria Nuland said that the circumstances in the Maldives are murky and contested. "I got myself in a place yesterday that was not borne out by the facts," she told a news briefing.

One thing that will need to be expanded before more nuclear plants come on line is storage of the waste.....I wonder which party are the Nimbys?


Roughly one-third of the federal government's entire budget for nuclear cleanup — about $2 billion each year — goes to Hanford, and nearly a third of that goes to construction of the plant. Last month, U.S. Rep. Edward J. Markey, D-Mass., demanded that the Energy Department provide an accurate statement of costs and schedule for the facility, and answer questions pertaining to safety complaints.

The price tag already has grown from $4.3 billion to $12.3 billion. The U.S. Department of Energy, which manages Hanford cleanup, recently announced additional costs of at least $800 million, as well as the possibility of additional delays.

WASHINGTON -- Lawyers for Washington and South Carolina on Tuesday accused President Obama of having exceeded his constitutional power in shuttering the Yucca Mountain nuclear waste repository.

Washington Assistant Attorney General Andrew Fitz told a federal appellate court that Obama's refusal to pay for continued development of the Nevada radioactive waste disposal site violates the 1982 Nuclear Waste Policy Act.

"He's acting unconstitutionally under the separation of powers doctrine because he doesn't have the authority under the statute," Fitz told a three-judge panel of the U.S. Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia Circuit. "He had no authority to reverse it."

Are you trying to say that Nebraskans are all Democrats since it was the the only State that came out at the last minute trying to kill the XL pipeline deal :???:

obama killed the pipeline, he is the only one that was responsible for the decision.

obama is the only onw that had responsibility if killing the XL pipeline, like he cancelled the storage of nuclear waste and threw all that money that had already been spent down a rabbit hole.

He's the Nimby you should be blaming, no one else.
