According to AEDC adds nuke plant to agenda, by Karen Welch Smith of the Amarillo Globe News, the next small step in the long process of licensing and building a new nuclear power plant near Amarillo, Texas is to obtain a formal indication of support by the Amarillo Economic Development Corporation.
The article also reports that Bechtel Power is assisting Amarillo Power in its project and will be beginning the studies required to support the required site permit – assuming that local support for the project is forthcoming.
Amarillo Globe News requires that you register to obtain access to its articles, but the registration is free and simple. The paper has already published at least five excellent and informative articles about Amarillo Power’s ABWR project; I suspect that it will continue to be the most timely source of information available. If you want to keep up with this exciting project, it is a worthwhile investment of a few minutes of your time.
