NRG President: End Game for Texas is Nuclear

More from the Cambridge Energy Research Associates (CERA) Annual Meeting, this time from the Houston Chronicle:

David Crane, president and CEO of power plant operator NRG Energy, said he believed "the end game for Texas is nuclear," and that the state should focus less on coal-fired plants to meet its power needs.

"This is the ideal place for nuclear because it doesn't use a lot of water, it doesn't threaten the nonattainment zones of the two largest cities, and it has wide open spaces so you do not have to put plants right hard up on 10 million people," he said.
For more on the meeting, be sure to check out the CERA Web site which has been providing daily summaries.
