Top Nuclear Firm In USA Confirms -- No New Nuclear Plants to Be Built in USA

Because of the plants' size and security needs, the costs become prohibitive.
He kind of links the success of renewable on the continued existence of the current nuclear plants.

If the existing nuclear units in the U.S. can continue to operate and the technology can be developed to store energy created by renewable resources, despite the current economic issues, "then we won't need" new nuclear units and "we won't build them because they'll be too expensive," he said.
