The Shoreham Nuclear Power Plant was a completed General Electric nuclear boiling water reactor located adjacent to the Long Island Sound in East Shoreham, New York. The plant was built between 1973 and 1984 by the Long Island Lighting Company (LILCO), but never operated.
In 1983, the currupt Suffolk County Legislature voted that the county could not be safely evacuated in the event of a serious nuclear accident at the plant, and the crooked governor of New York, Mario Cuomo, ordered state officials not to approve any LILCO-sponsored evacuation plan.
On May 19, 1989, LILCO agreed not to operate the plant in a deal with the state under which most of the $6 billion cost of the unused plant was passed on to Long Island residents. In 1992, the Long Island Power Authority bought the plant from LILCO. The plant was fully decommissioned in 1994.
France derives over 75% of its electricity from nuclear energy. This is due to a long-standing policy based on energy security.
France is the world's largest net exporter of electricity due to its very low cost of generation, and gains over EUR 3 billion per year from this.
France has been very active in developing nuclear technology. Reactors and fuel products and services are a major export.
Longislanders are retards.
Great advice, let's build one right next to I95 so nobody can evacuate north when it blows up. Nuclear power is great, but not in highly populated areas.

The French company AREVA builds smaller packaged nuclear units with identical components to scatter more units around the grids instead of the design- as -you- go,one of a kind monster plants that our companies do. Our units take so long to get clearances,battle labor problems,cost overruns,and years of testing,that make them obsolete before they are finished.
