Bailout alert: PSEG quietly lobbying New Jersey for handouts to keep operating 2 nuclear plants in the state
As reported by NJ Spotlight, regarding the Salem Unit 1 and 2 atomic reactors in New Jersey near Wilmington, Delaware:
Public Service Enterprise Group officials have quietly begun lobbying administration and legislative officials about securing new financial incentives for the units -- given their ability produce powerto global climate change. (emphasis added)
(That last claim is, of course, most debatable!)
Exelon Nuclear is minority owner of the Salem 1 & 2 atomic reactors. Exelon lobbyists have similarly demanded bailouts in IL, PA, and NY, in order to prop up its age-degraded, economically non-competitive atomic reactors.
