Duke Energy CEO: Nuclear Energy Headed for the Carolinas

Over and over again, we've heard nuclear critics say that any company that announced plans for new nuclear build would get clobbered by Wall Street. I wonder what those folks would have to say about this story:

North Carolina or South Carolina are the likely sites for the rebirth of nuclear power plants in the United States, Duke Energy Corp. (DUK.N: Quote, Profile, Research) Chief Executive James Rogers said on Wednesday.

Rogers, speaking at a Bank of America investment conference in San Francisco, said in response to a question that if a new nuclear plant is built in the United States, "it will be in the South and it will be in the Carolinas."
Short of an actual announcement that Duke is ordering components, I don't know what else you might want to hear. As always, the place to hang if you want to talk nuclear energy in the Carolinas is We Support Lee. For more discussion, check out The Liberty Lounge.

Thanks for the links, along with this encouraging news!

Rod Adams also recently mentioned that a major Westinghouse facility is possibly coming to the Carolinas.

I would love to have others' thoughts about what local folks could do during the next couple of years in support of the facility(ies).
