 Duke Energy last week submitted a combined construction and operating license application to the U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission (NRC) for the proposed two-unit William States Lee III Nuclear Generating Station in Cherokee County, S.C, with a capacity of 2.23 GW.

Duke Energy is the fourth company to submit a COL application to the NRC under the revised licensing process, and the first to submit an application for a greenfield site. The Duke Energy application uses TVA’s Bellefonte COL application as the Westinghouse AP1000 reference application.

This sounds like good news for the people of SC, and everyone else in the US community.

Gee, Ruth, I guess this means you’ll need to update the information on your blog now!
