DTE Energy Co. has selected a nuclear reactor design produced by Wilmington, N.C.-based GE Hitachi Nuclear Energy for its potential new nuclear plant at its Fermi 2 site near Monroe.
The reactor chosen by DTE is the ESBWR, with an electrical output of approximately 1550 MWe. The only reactor operating of this type of design (natural circulation of reactor coolant) has an electric output of approximately 50 MWe. The ESBWR is not licensed, is known to have a number of core stability issues, and is un-proven. Furthermore, the cost of building the plant is unknown. Why does DTE want to bet on such a design? How will its board of director say to this?
It is good to see a corporation step forward to save lives and provide energy that is not controlled by hostile foreign powers. Of course, the enemies of the American people will resist this progress in any way possible.
