It's about time that Progress made this announcement official. They have been telling the NRC for a while that they are going to stick with one technology across all of their new plants.

Since they have drastically delayed their North Carolina plants in lieu of a conservation push, I expect more of the same for Progress Florida. Progress seems to be a waste of time with respect to getting new construction rolling sooner rather than later.

I think that TVA or Southern are the best bets for Toshiba to get new reactors built soon in the US. Those two organizations have the will and the money to do so. However, if TVA does move forward with Watts Bar 2, then they will delay new plants at Bellefonte. That leaves Southern at Vogtle to get the job done.
