Today, Exelon Corp. issued the following statement on a new report from the Union of Concerned Scientists that makes the environmental case for the preservation of existing nuclear plants:
“This is a big moment in the fight against climate change. The report provides more evidence that preserving existing nuclear plants is essential to a clean energy future for consumers and that failure to do so will set back state and national efforts to achieve essential emissions reductions. As the nation’s largest producer of emissions-free energy, we strongly support their call for a technology-neutral, nationwide price on carbon that puts us on course to reduce emissions in the fastest and most economical way possible and delivers value back to customers.”
