“Limit your exuberance till later this week,” the PM remarked early Wednesday. He wouldn’t say whether he’d approve Sizewell C.
Thursday, Boris Johnson will speak on energy security. This comes as reports suggest the government may accept funding for a new nuclear power plant in Suffolk.
In his last days in office, the prime minister has been conducting a tour throughout the country. During these stops,
He’ll likely attempt to continue the country’s efforts to lessen its reliance on imported fossil fuels and cut costs by increasing indigenous energy.
The government estimates that the nuclear power station known as Sizewell C, which will consist of two reactors,
Would be able to generate 3.2 gigawatts of electricity. It is anticipated that Mr. Johnson will provide more assurances on the project.
Chancellor Nadhim Zahawi said it’s “a good idea to continue investing in nuclear” but refused to comment on the final site decision.
According to the government, Sizewell C has the capacity to generate sufficient energy to provide about six million homes with power for a period of sixty years.
