"Cheap natural gas might doom new Fermi plant"

As reported by the Detroit Free Press, even with U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission (NRC) approval of its combined Construction and Operating License Application (COLA), Detroit Edison still might not build the proposed new Fermi 3 atomic reactor.

Not mentioned in the article, however, are massive public subsidies DTE's nuclear lobbyists could attempt to tap: federal loan guarantees, and ratepayer "Construction Work in Progress" funds. If it's other people's money being risked, why wouldn't DTE want to go there?
