They voted to submit the application today, not sure when the actual submission takes place, October is what was previously stated. Really a no-brainer from TVAs point of view, NuStart and DOE are paying for the application and TVA doesn't have to invest a dime (except their NuStart dues) unless they decide to build the place which they are under no obligation to do.

This will be the reference application for the AP1000 design, that is the important thing, it is likely TVA will not be the first US company to construct an AP1000 since they are waiting until after Watts Bar 2 is operational to start this project, so no construction for at least 5 years whereas some of the other companies seeking to build an AP1000 are wanting to start right away.
